I have heard that the Pet Insurance companies are under investigation

Customer Question

I have heard that the Pet Insurance companies are under investigation in connection with the amount of premiums being charged - is this correct?

Customer: replied 5 years ago.
I insure my horse through Stoneways Insurance. I had to make a claim last year for Vet fees which were covered under my insurance. I have just received my renewal notice for the policy and the premium has increased by over 50% - nearly £300 more than last year. I find this hard to understand but the company is not prepared to negotiate, even given that I have been with them for around 20 years.

Thanks for your question, I will do whatever I can to help you. Please remember to rate my answer SMILEY FACE OR ABOVE.

I am sorry to say no.

This would be investigated by the Office of Fair Trading.

They are not currently being investigated although complaints are being recorded.

They may be investigated later - but not at this stage.

I hope this helps.
