Budget Direct customers happiest in Australia

01 July 2014

Budget Direct has been awarded Australia’s Happiest Car & Home Insurance Customers for 2014 from social media monitoring website ServiceRage.

ServiceRage bases the rankings on the ratio of positive and negative social media activity between customers and companies. In the past year Budget Direct has outperformed 20 other monitored brands with a lead of over 10% achieving the highest ranking in the Car and Home Insurance category. 

After being named by Money magazine as Best of the Best for Car and Home & Contents Insurance 2014, and by Canstar as Outstanding Value Car Insurance  provider eight years in a row, this latest win makes Jonathan Kerr Director of Marketing & Digital at Budget Direct a very happy man.

“Winning awards for cheapest price and oustanding value products is superb but getting the independent award for Australia’s Happiest Customers on Car and Home & Contents Insurance means the world to everyone at Budget Direct,” says Mr Kerr. 

“This shows we are delivering the complete winning package: service, price and product, to our super smart customers.”  

Budget Direct is miles ahead of every other monitored brand in the Home and Car category, according to ServiceRage Director Mark Wells.

“ServiceRage is like a super pumped up version of word of mouth from family and friends. If you want to know what it feels like to be a customer of any of these brands, this is where you go. Budget Direct customers are being taken care of by the only 5 star general insurance company on our site,” says Mr Wells.
