Which cover is most appropriate for you?

LV= pet insurance offers two different levels of cover. The Essential policy is more appropriate for treatment of one-off accidents, whereas the Premier policy is better suited for longer-term ongoing illnesses. You can read more about the key benefits below.


You'll get all of this with our Essential and Premier pet insurance policies

The table below gives a brief summary of just some of the key benefits available from our Essential and Premier policies. Please read the policy documents for full details.

With Essential your pet is only covered for 12 months of treatment from the onset of a condition (up to a maximum of £5,000 and subject to cover still being in force).

Premier pet insurance policy
