Fly Around the World Free With Budget Direct!

20K World Trip

  • Win a Round The World Trip for two – no purchase needed to enter.

Santa might fly around the world in one night, but most of us would prefer a few stopovers along the way. Fortunately Budget Direct is offering the chance to win a 25 day Round the World trip for free – stopping at some of the hottest destinations on the planet.

In keeping with the spirit of the festive season the competition is free for everyone to enter – however those who do buy travel insurance with Budget Direct will go into the draw to double their chances of winning, says Jodi Thomas, Manager, Budget Direct Travel Insurance.

"Budget Direct is giving away the trip of a lifetime; the chance to visit some of the world's top cities capped off with a well deserved rest in Hawaii, with accommodation, transfers, spending money – and of course travel insurance – all included," says Ms Thomas.

"Travel insurance is one of those things many people leave until the last minute, but the winner can feel rest assured they will be well covered with Budget Direct."

A survey* by Budget Direct found 25% of Aussies leave buying travel insurance to the last minute, potentially missing out on better deals than if they'd taken the time to shop around.

To enter the draw to wing your way around the world, visit: And don’t forget to tell your family and friends to enter as well, says Ms Thomas.

"We're encouraging people to share the competition with friends on Facebook and Twitter – you never know, they might even take you as their 'plus one' if they win!"
