Budget Direct is thrilled to have won the national Canstar Outstanding Value Car Insurance award for the 11th year in a row.
Every year, Canstar obtains more than 20,000 quotes from car insurance providers to find out which policies provide outstanding value to drivers across Australia. In determining outstanding value, Canstar looks for an ideal combination of both price and features.
Budget Direct is proud to be the only brand to have won a Canstar award for Outstanding Value since the awards began in 2007, says Budget Direct MD/CEO Ram Kangatharan.
“It's fantastic for Budget Direct to receive this independent recognition of our great products and services from Canstar," said Mr Kangatharan.
"Our car insurance was compared against 50 other insurers and found once again to be the cream of the crop. This demonstrates our customers consistently get more with Budget Direct, every day, year in and year out."
According to the Canstar Research team, “Budget Direct’s consistent winning position is driven by the fact that it is truly an insurer for all Australian motorists, with competitive pricing for everyone from young drivers to families with L-platers to senior drivers.
“Being affordable is one thing, but the Research team also found that Budget Direct offers outstanding value through competitive premiums coupled with strong policy cover,” said Canstar.
“In addition, innovations like the award-winning Hail Hero system demonstrate a company that is looking out for their customers.”
