Don't use Asda for your pet insurance. I took out pet insurance for my dog not long after we got her, thinking it would be the sensible thing to do just in case she became ill or needed treatment. I have paid into the policy for over 4 years now without needing to make a claim. Recently though, a small 'spot' on her tummy altered shape and size so, on the advice of my vet, it was removed surgically at a cost of approximately £175. I made a claim to Asda for this amount and after an... (read more)

DID A LOT OF RESEARCH BEFORE CHOOSING ASDA PET INSURANCE, thought they would be fair and trustworthy as we shopped in their store for years and had good service. They paid out quickly on small claims but let us down on renewal prices for policy 1st year premium for one dog £176.00. after 3rd year premium just short of £1,000.00 for two dogs! PLUS excess jumped from £65.00 to £80.00 PLUS a brand new charge of 10% of each claim. I cancelled the policy and save the money in an account for... (read more)

We took out a policy with Asda pet insurance 2 years ago. 1st year £28.00 per month. Made a claim for our dog of £550 and took 3 months to pay us. 2nd year £43.00 per month, but no claim. Now our dog has turned 7,they want £65.20 a month.Staggering amount for a maximum payout policy of £3000 only. Once your dog has a condition, like our dog who has hip dysplacia but not bad enough to have an operation, they know you have to stick with them. But will go elsewhere and put the savings...

Chose Asda and stuck with them for three years without claiming on a rescue springer spaniel still only 5 years old. Sent a cheery renewal notice couched in language that reflected a lottery win tand that indicated I was receiving a fabulous offer by Asda increasing my premium from just over 140.00 to well over 200.00. When I rang up to query the amount I was also informed that included a loyalty discount ... What a nerve ! I have given Asda a loyalty dismount and settled elsewhere... ASDA... (read more)

We have two dogs and have used Asda Superior for a three years. The premiums were good value but once you claim it's a different story. We had no claims in the first two years, then three in one year, none of which are ongoing conditions, simply unlucky, and something not likely to be repeated. Asda were very slow to settle the claims (when you call they say they've not received the forms but they admit to running a month behind so if you wait they do pay up eventually - as we pay the...

My cat fell ill recently, and after paying for the Initial consultation with the Vet, I contacted an Asda "colleague" (I hate that term!), and then filled in a Claim form, as well as a Pre-Authorisation form for the further treatment required. My Vet faxed them together, and then posted them in the same envelope. The colleague had told me it would take 3-5 working days for the pre-authorisation to be approved. 6 days later, I called them again, to be told that the pre-auth would be... (read more)

My PET CLAIM for partial amputation on my young cat's tail took over 6 weeks to be completed...I had to write, phone & e-mail very many times. My vet sent all relevant documents several times regarding my young cat's surgery and eventually Asda reimbursed me. Unfortunately, several weeks after this claim, my little boy was killed on a road nearby. Asda, again, produced APPALLING service. After over 6 weeks and in desperation, I wrote to its managing director (by name), giving full... (read more)

ASDA PET INSURANCE - Having be in the awful position of having to make a claim just 4 weeks after purchasing the insurance cover, I rang the 24 Hour Claim line at 7pm on a Wednesday evening. I heard a recorded message telling me that the offices are only open until 6pm Monday to Friday and 1pm on a Saturday. Then my call was automatically cut off my Asda. I wrote to the customer service department to complain. 11 months later and having received my renewal I decided to ring the 24 hr... (read more)

Stay away from Asda if you want a decent insurance .
Our claim was made back in January and we are still waiting for payment and its nearly May ! Countless phone calls havent made any difference to the long drawn out process of trying to get a claim settled .
They dont hang around taking my money each month . Stay away ...

I sent in a claim on 4th January. Had heard nothing by the 10th Feb so I rang them, was told they had not received it, had to wait for another form to be sent out and claim again, with copies of bills from the vets etc. All took Time!
Then i got the first original claim form back today, dated recieved on 18th Jan, with a query and more details required from the vet etc before they would pay out.
SLOWWWWWWWWWW!!! Avoid, I am moving insurers once they have paid up!

I sent a claim form in mid January - I was told today that the form has not been received and I need to go back to my vet to get another form filled in.
Also as of today's date (09/02/2011) they are processing claims made on 07/01/2011. This means they are over a month behind in dealing with all claims.
I have put in a formal complaint - I don't know when I will receive a payment - I am certainly not happy with the level of service I have received and would definately not recommend Asda pet... (read more)

I would like to thank ASDA for giving me claim. I have insured my Tommy with ASDA. Unfortunately in september 2010, Tommy suffers from some heart diseases and sadly I have to let him go in November.
I applied for claim and thanks to ASDA for giving claim in time. I would like to say that it was my best decision to buy pet insurance from ASDA.

On this Christmas I was away on my holidays and it was my priority to keep my dog safe and secure. I visited many websites and found http://www.asda-pet-insurance.com suitable for my requirements. When I came back on 27th December, one letter was waiting for payments at my address and I was surprised to see that, as I had already paid. I just called up the ASDA call center and sort our issue. I would recommend ASDA Pet Insurance to all my friends. (read more)

Have insured through Asda for several years.
This year in June they changed insurer from Allianz (which had been good) to QBE Europe Ltd administered by an outfit BDML Connect Services Ltd, who are abysmal.
We needed to make a claim in August and it took 3 calls over 3 weeks just to get a claim form.
Very sadly in September our lovely 9 year old Newfoundland collapsed and we had to let him go.
The subsequent claim was paid, but we then received a letter on 27 October telling us that we... (read more)

Unfortunatley Asda's Pet insurance is not as nice as their food. They have two policies, and even the higher level policy is not much cop. Both are 12 month only policies, which means that 12 months from the first symptom of a condition you are no longer covered; ie. if you have an ear infection one year, then another ear infection three years later, the second wouldn't be covered, as 12 months after the first ear condition started, your cover for ears 'times out'. Many people take out... (read more)
