1/5   far too much excess and high yearlyrises   8 April 2018

Reviewed By: mrs b, Recommend: N

my policy is jumping every year by approx £10 per month the excess per year per condition is horrendous and then to have to pay 20% of the balance is a rip off and disgusting. whats worse they know i cant move to another provider now because my dog has an existing condition its so wrong

1/5   Gold Cover, we do not think so!   7 April 2018

Reviewed By: Lynda Harding, Recommend: N

We have had Buddies ‘Gold’ plan for our Cocker Spaniel, for 11years, two months and twenty seven days. Not one claim in all that time. After inoperable tumour diagnosis, we were left with no alternative except euthanasia. We now discover not covered on policy as our dog over nine years old. The policy has gone from £180.36 per annum in 2007, to £1,098.31 for 2017/2018. We have already paid excess and our now faced with another £331.31 to pay. This has caused even more distress at an extremely difficult time. The exclusion for older dogs is hidden in small print and certainly not clearly visible. Please be aware if you are thinking of using Buddies!

3/5   Shop Around   9 September 2015

Reviewed By: Deb Maddock, Recommend: N

I took out a Buddies Premier Plus policy for our Mini Schnauzer puppy last year at £22.19 a month. Did not make a claim, and this year the renewal is £27.50. When I called to ask why, they could not give an acceptable answer. I said if they can't keep it at the same level as last year then I will cancel. Cancelled. I would like to have a NFU Policy but they will only insure pets if you have a House Contents policy with them as well.
