Switch and save
Compared to their previous insurers' premiums, our West Australian car insurance customers told us they saved an average of $###† by switching to Budget Direct.
It helps explain why Canstar has awarded us their national Outstanding Value Car Insurance award for a record 12 years in a row, from 2007 to 2018.
Choose your cover
With Budget Direct, you can select one of three types of car insurance:
Highly rated claims
Assessments and repairs
In Western Australia, you can get your vehicle’s damage assessed by:
- one of our selected repairers, or
- a local repairer (if there isn’t a selected repairer near you).
Afterwards, we’ll – for your convenience – appoint a repairer and manage the whole repair process on your behalf.
Compulsory third party (CTP) insurance
All vehicles in Australia must have CTP cover before they can be registered and legally driven on the road; motorists pay for this cover either as part of their vehicle registration fee (or vehicle licence fee, as it’s called in WA) or separately.
In Western Australia, CTP insurance is provided by the Insurance Commission of Western Australia (ICWA).
For more information, visit the ICWA website.
