The pet insurance policies from Sainsbury’s are all underwritten by Allianz. Allianz is the company that owns and operates Petplan.
In the course of conducting research to enable us to write this review, we noted that many of Sainsbury’s clients are not happy with this company. Many of the pet owners who responded to our request for information noted that the company has been very slow when it comes to responding to customer complaints.
A large portion of the survey respondents stated that they experienced delays whenever they submitted a claim to the company. Another thing we noted is that the insurer does not provide a lifetime cover.
Instead, it has opted to provide a maximum benefit condition policy. This policy comes with a maximum limit of up to £13,000 for each condition. When rating the company, it only managed to get a score of 3.5/5.
