With Coles pet insurance, you get to choose between 2 policies: basic and premium. As well as offering 100% on vet bills, you can also earn 10x Flybuys points on pet food items you buy at Coles Supermarkets.
- Coles pet insurance is one of the few providers available on Finder that offers up to 100% back on eligible vet bills — most only offer 80%.
- Coles pay your approved procedures directly to the vet — you only need to pay the excess. Some insurers require you to pay then they reimburse you.
- Its $12,000 annual benefit limit is not market-leading — Woolworths, Petsy and Knose all offer between $8,000 and $13,000 more. Keep in mind this might mean you'll pay more though.
