Car Insurance – Australia

With 18 million registered vehicles on the road (a 12.5% increase in the past 5 years)1, Australia is certainly a car-loving nation. Today, only 10% of Aussie commuters use public transport to get to work, and the number of commuters using a private vehicle is actually increasing. Even 1 in 5 train commuters still use their cars to get to the train station2.

Car accidents are also on the increase – with around 3 million motorists (close to 20% of all drivers) being involved in at least one reported accident within the past 5 years3. And even though there was a 7% reduction in car theft rates in 2013/2014 over the previous financial year, there are still more than 50,000 vehicle thefts across the country annually, representing a huge cost to the Australian community4.

Budget Direct – affordable, award-winning car insurance

Budget Direct has been looking after Australian drivers since 2000 with Comprehensive, Third Party and Third Party Fire & Theft policies tailored to their individual needs. Our car insurance is also very competitively priced: we recently won Canstar’s Outstanding Value Car Insurance award (2016) for the tenth year in a row5. We understand that there is no such thing as ‘one policy for everybody’, so we give you a great range of Policy Options to suit your particular requirements – at a price you can live with. And we offer the flexibility of paying fortnightly, monthly or annually and by credit card, PayPal or direct debit.

Compare our value and save

Wherever you drive in Australia, having the right car insurance is essential for your peace of mind. When you’re making Car Insurance Comparisons, it’s important to look not only at the price, but at the totality of what is being offered. At Budget Direct, our Smarter Benefits include an easy, straightforward claims process, a guarantee on all authorised repairs for as long as you own your car, a 21-day Money Back Guarantee if you should change your mind and the convenience of our 24-hour Claims Hotline – so we can assist you as quickly as possible if you need to make a claim. Terms and conditions apply; see the Product Disclosure Statement for full details.

Innovation that works for you

At Budget Direct, we don’t wait around to see what the rest of the industry is doing - we lead from the front by bringing fresh ideas and looking at new ways to create a better customer experience. Take the Hail Hero7, for example - named Most Innovative Product for 2012 at the Australian Business Awards. The Hail Hero is a ground-breaking software application that helps drivers to avoid approaching hailstorms through timely SMS text warnings. It’s free to all our existing Budget Direct Car Insurance customers, regardless of the type of vehicle cover they have with us. But our innovation doesn’t stop there: we also reward our customers (and their friends) for switching to Budget Direct Car Insurance. Take a look at our Budget Direct Buddy System to see exactly how this works. We are also one of the first Australian insurers to make Customer Service Support available through Facebook, Google+ and Twitter.
