Happy Honeymoon for Ultimate Travel Prize Winner

January 31, 2017

Budget Direct’s $10,000 Ultimate Travel prize couldn’t have come at a better time for winner Hannah from Victoria, who is getting married in March.

Hannah was automatically entered into the draw when she purchased Budget Direct travel insurance for her honeymoon to Thailand and was thrilled when Budget Direct called to tell her she had won first prize.

“Thank you so much, I really can't believe it!” said Hannah.

Hannah said this was the second time she’d chosen Budget Direct travel insurance – the first time being in 2015 on another trip to Thailand.

“We booked our travel insurance through Budget Direct as it was the cheapest option that had the best cover and good reviews online for the claim process,” said Hannah.

“This time I just booked straight with [Budget Direct] and didn't really look around as the price was good and with everything else going on with the wedding planning I really couldn't be bothered comparing too much. Lazy I know - but it paid off in the end!”

Jodi Thomas, Budget Direct’s Head of Product Management, said she was thrilled the win came at an opportune time for Hannah, and that she had chosen to insure her honeymoon travel with Budget Direct based on a previous positive experience.

“Budget Direct prides itself on making it easy for our customers to purchase travel insurance which provides great coverage at a great price, with the knowledge that we will be there for them should the unexpected occur,” said Jodi.

“We look forward to insuring Hannah’s and her partner’s future travels together!”
