Otta's take on Napo

Xav Kearney

CTO of Otta

High claims and a small market have traditionally made pet insurance an unappealing option for big insurers. With household pet ownership ballooning in the UK over the pandemic, however, that market is growing, and a flurry of startups are cropping up to cash in. Napo is a relatively young entrant to the scene, offering a comprehensive platform of low-excess insurance and wellbeing services for British pet-owners.

Pet insurance customers are a different and a more discerning breed to, for example, car insurance customers. Providers need to court pet-owners with a more comprehensive suite of coverage, including advertising costs and rewards for missing pets, and bereavement counselling. Napo ticks all these boxes, but they are rapidly becoming an industry standard in a way that requires more to stand out.

Trupanion, for example, are investing in high-tech streamlining solutions to help facilitate scaling without service quality taking a hit. And the larger, better established pet insurtech, Bought by Many, recently won a hefty sum in the pet industry’s largest VC investment deal. Napo have a friendly brand, and are entering into a growing market, but will have to adapt fast to keep pace.
