Why get Southern Cross Pet Insurance?

Looking for Ellenco?

Southern Cross purchased Ellenco Pet Insurance in 2012 and we've recently re-branded to Southern Cross Pet Insurance. Ellenco was New Zealand's first pet insurer with over 20 years' experience helping pet owners. Together with Southern Cross' expertise in healthcare and insurance, that's a combination you and your pets can rely on.
