Award winning pet insurance for your four-legged friends

We're proud to have won Canstar's 2023 Outstanding Value Pet Insurance with Routine Care Award.

Claim with GapOnly®

GapOnly® can help relieve the stress of upfront vet payments, allowing you to claim on the spot for eligible vet bills, so you can focus on looking after your furry friend.~ 

With GapOnly®, your claim is processed in around 10 minutes, while you’re still at the vet. You then simply pay the gap, which is the difference between the vet’s invoice and the eligible claim benefit under your pet insurance policy.

GapOnly is available at participating vets. Locate one using the GapOnly®Vet Finder.~
