Teagans Insurance

I am going to have to cancel Teagans insurance.
It has risen AGAIN - and I have once again not claimed.
It's gone up to 40 from 19.99, and theres no way I can afford that.
It went up to around 19.99 last year, and I thought that was high, but this is so expensive

I've been online and got about a million quotes, varying from 35, to 129 a month!

I think i'm going to have to put 20 a month into a bank account, and if I do have to pay out a lot, i'll have to borrow the money.

Going to phone tomorrow and cancel it (It's M&S btw)

Thanks Ailsa.
Thats not a bad quote at all (21). Who are they underwritten by?
Are you with them? (Would like some feedback before chosing them!)

I recently changed to them...there is a thread on here about them (if you do a search on animal friends insurance it should come up) they used to be uunderwritten by E&L but they aren't anymore..I think it may be Red Sands??? I can check for you?

I have just insured Tango with them as well on a lower rate than Cosmo...shes on the 16 pound a month one. They seem really good...and give their net profit to animal charities.

OMG I thought my renewal was high Finn's has risen from 23.99 to 27.99

I am very tempted to try elsewhere and risk being without insurance for his allergy.

Yeah, thats the thing Carole - Teagan has had a lot of health problems in the past - but luckily none of them have reoccured, so i'm hoping they won't!

Thanks so much Ramble, I will take a proper look tomorrow when I'm not so tired (was my first day back at work today!)

I claimed over 2 years ago for allergy testing and an op on his foot and thats been it. If he was having ongoing treatment I would not have minded the premium

Star is with MoreThan and hers is cheaper than Finn's and she is nearly 7

His allergies are ok now aren't they Carole?
It might be worth changing insurers and risking it....

I found this with M&S too. They doubled Loki's premiums (before we had claimed) and I was considering changing. Rio is insured with Animal Friends and they are pretty cheap and the benefits are good. M&S changed their underwriters and they are way too dear now.
