Choose a policy. Your cashback will be on its way and in your account in less than 60 days.
The first thing we need to know is which breed of guinea pig you have, its age, and how much you paid for your furry friend. These details influence the cost of your policy, so be as accurate as you can.
Medical history is always an important factor in pricing up small pet insurance, and it’s certainly important for guinea pig policies. We’ll need to know about your furry friend’s full medical history, including past vaccinations or surgical procedures like neutering/spaying.
With the kinds of trusted insurers that we recommend, you can receive as much coverage as you like. It largely depends on how much you want to pay and the coverage you need. We help make your decision easier by providing recommendations from the UK’s best pet insurance companies. All you need to do is think about what you might need to be covered against.
Vet bills can be expensive, even for smaller pets like rodents. Like most household pets, guinea pigs are susceptible to any number of illnesses from mites and Malocclusion (more on that later) to respiratory problems and abscesses.
These niggles, as minor as they sometimes are, can cost you in the long-run. Vet bill cover is a high priority for most pet insurance policies, and it should be high on your priorities too.
In the event that your guinea pig escapes, is lost or even stolen, you will receive standard ‘loss and theft’ coverage to protect you from the associated costs. You should also be covered against any advertising costs should your furry friend go missing.
Losing your guinea pig is like losing a family member, and in the unfortunate event that yours dies by injury or illness then you will be covered against the costs. Likewise if your beloved pet has to be put down then you should be covered for this. However, you will probably find that some insurers won’t cover you if they are over a certain age (check with your insurer to be sure).
You’ll find that many insurers will cover you if your guinea pig’s hutch or cage is damaged by extreme weather conditions like wind.
You can also receive cover if your guinea pig injures someone or damages their property.
The first thing you can do to keep your insurance costs down is compare providers. Because we recommend only the best insurers in the UK, all you need to do is decide what coverage you’d like to receive. Think about your needs and the needs of your beloved guinea pig.
What’s more, we can give you up to £20 cashback. This, along with the savings you can make from comparing, makes your search for insurance all the better.
As with all pet insurance policies, you’re likelier to see your premiums reduce if your guinea pig is healthy and active. These adorable animals often have sensitive digestive systems, so keep to a fairly regimented diet and make sure there is plenty of vitamin C present in their food (supplements will help you with this).
If you’re blessed enough to own more than one guinea pig, taking out a multi-pet policy (offered by most insurers) will help reduce the cost and you’ll often receive a discount too.
Keeping in mind their short lifespan, we recommend that you take out insurance as early as you possibly can. You’ll find a variety of plans and policies that work for you, and the key is knowing just what to look out for.

When using the Compare service, you must take reasonable care to answer insurers questions fully and accurately and if you volunteer other information, you must take reasonable care to ensure that the information is not misleading. If any information that you have provided changes before you take out your insurance, during the life of the policy or at renewal you must inform the insurer or broker of the change. If you deliberately or carelessly misrepresent any information in relation to this insurance, then your policy may not pay all, or part, of a claim and could in certain circumstances be avoided altogether.
