Cat playing with toy

Cats provide companionship and entertainment in equal measure, making them an important part of your household. Keep them protected with one of the four National Trustco Bank Pet Insurance cover levels.

  • Choose from: Premier, Extra, Standard or Accident and Injury cover for cats and kittens from eight weeks old.
  • Our Premier cover for cats means you have cover for a one off or ongoing condition, with the vet fees limit reinstated each year on renewal. With a Defaqto 5 Star Rating it provides one of the highest quality offerings in the market.
  • If your cat goes missing or is stolen, we'll pay up to £1,000 for advertising (including up to £200 for a reward) as part of our Premier, Extra and Standard cover. Find out more
  • You'll have 24 hour access to vetfone™, a helpline if your pet becomes unwell or you need advice on any pet related questions or concerns.
  • Regular news and content to help you look after your pet.
  • National Trustco Bank Pet Insurance is arranged, administered and underwritten by Royal & Sun Alliance Insurance plc. vetfone™ is provided by Vetsdirect Ltd.

Cats are more prone to illness and ailments as they get older which means the price of insurance increases at renewal. New developments in diagnosis and treatments have meant that vets can give you even better care. This is great news for your family pet but has meant a rise in vet fees, and the cost of claims. If your pet develops a pre-existing condition such as diabetes, you may find it difficult to get that condition covered elsewhere. But rest assured, as long as you keep your Tesco Pet policy in force, you’ll be covered up to the total vet fees limit you’ve chosen each year.
