My experience with Waggel has just proven that insurance is a lot like betting. They bet my pet will not need their services while tempting me with stories of how they saved the day and I bet my pet will need their services to cover medical care that may be very expensive. My claim with Waggle, (incidentally the only insurance claim I have ever made over 40+ years of having a pet), began in September and took two months to be denied. All through the process, it was up to me to chase up Waggle and the vet. Waggel blamed my vet for taking so long to send the paperwork but never bothered to chase them up. I had to call Waggle to get them to do the chasing. In the end, because I had taken her to the vet for a new pet check up 11 days after adopting her, my claim was denied and any further claim associated with her entire respiratory system will be considered a "pre-existing condition". Also, because my dog is adopted and the two vets I use have differing opinions as to her age (one says she is about 4 and the other says she is about 5), it has been implied that I have lied to Waggle and thus my premium will now be increased. What I find the most interesting about Waggel's claim to be different and their multiple five star reviews is that the press you very, very hard to review them as soon as you have purchased a policy. Selling me the policy and taking my money was indeed 5-star easy. Leaving me thousands of pounds of essential medical treatment (which, contrary to their text message I did not see coming) and increasing my premium rates a 1-star experience. Don't be taken in by their cute terms for things such as "customer champion" or discount offers on buying luxury dog jumpers, Waggle is an insurance company first and foremost. They make their money in getting you to buy premiums and denying you coverage. Before you say but they paid for my dog's life saving surgery....think about Vegas. Of course casinos have to let people win now and then, otherwise it would be bad for business, ultimately they make such a profit that paying a few claims to encourage more customers is how they work. So, my experience has been disappointing. Had I waited three more days then maybe they would have paid the claim made eight months later.... maybe not. Either way, I think my monthly premium is best kept out of their pocket.
