Emergency Services Levy
Our New South Wales customers’ Home Insurance premiums include their contribution to the state government’s Emergency Services Levy (ESL).
The levy is collected via insurance policies – not just those issued by Budget Direct, but by other providers too.
The ESL goes towards funding fire and emergency services in NSW.
