During this period of adjustment, our pets can be a source of great comfort and stress relief and we are so glad to have them in our lives.
We are all still here ready to respond to the needs of our customers and partners whether for claims and policy information or simply to talk through any pet concerns you may have. Please see below for the support services available to you.
We appreciate your patience during this time, as like many businesses, we also have needed to pivot and some of our expert staff are working from home.
Call us on 1300 731 324 (Available Mon to Fri 8am – 5pm)
The team at Petcover understand that sometimes our customers may experience difficult circumstances. We are ready to provide any further support you may need from us.

If you need support from someone else such as a lawyer, consumer representative, interpreter, family member or friend, please let us know and we will work with you to accommodate your request.
