One of Australia’s leading General Insurance providers

Budget Direct has been offering Simply Smarter insurance since 2000. We’ve insured over 1.5 million Australians since then. By asking smarter questions we avoid subsidising “high-risk” clients, which means we can pass on great savings to our customers. Our commitment to quality and innovation means you get the cover you want, at a price you can afford, with all the features you’d expect - plus a lot more. So why not join millions of others and get a quote with us today.

And we’re here for the long haul

Our policies are underwritten by Auto & General Insurance Company Limited, an Australian insurance company regulated by APRA and a member of the Insurance Council of Australia.

We’re part of the international Budget Insurance group, which provides insurance solutions for millions of policy holders worldwide. The group includes one of the largest direct personal lines insurers in South Africa, and one of the largest personal lines insurance intermediaries in the United Kingdom.

We’ve been around for a while. And we’ll be here for a long time to come.

Awards, Awards, Awards...

Time after time when independent experts compare car insurance, Budget Direct takes home the awards. Budget Direct is the only provider to have won the coveted CANSTAR award for ‘Outstanding Value Car Insurance’ every year since 2007. Recently adding the 2016 CANSTAR national award to its long list, that's 10 years in a row! Plus, we won the 2016 Mozo People’s Choice award for our Home Insurance products.

Our commitment to innovation has also been recognised with our Hail Hero SMS service – which warns Budget Direct car customers who are likely to be immediately affected by severe hail with an SMS – winning Canstar’s Innovation Excellence Award
