Excellent Insurance product

published

Highly recommended. Very reasonable rates and excellent repair and customer service. We had an accident recently involving a goat & I was worried that our late model volvo wouldn't be looked after. Nothing to worry about - fabulous service & professional repairs using volvo parts. Thank you budget direct for a 'great value' product.

Fine if nothing goes wrong

Budget Direct made me pay 2x excesses for intentional damage done to the same area of my car, in short succession, by a person who I made a domestic violence witness statement against. Completely impossible to deal with this company as they have no discretion or empathy.

AVOID if under 25

published

Budget Direct cancelled my policy after a collision where I was not at fault due to my age (24) and ‘business practice’ that stated I bring “more loss than profit”. I was told “it’s not personal, it’s business”. It is cheap for a reason. Spend an extra $30 a month.

Terrible

Bad experience, made a claim after paying excess they said they won’t fix our car. They have major claim regarding to hail damage. completely ruin our time and definitely will cancel our insurance with them

Quite cheap

Worked out that the insurance i got with Budget Direct was literally 50% cheaper then my previous insurer. Just cant beat that. Staff are helpful too. Their website is also a lot better to navigate.

Great value for money.

published

Policy was good value. It offered the same cover as my previous insurer for a fraction of the cost. The price difference was enough to entice me to switch insurers.

Do not get any insurance from budget direct you not covered . They wont pay any damage for your car or others!!!!

published

Worse insurance company in Australia.
You wont be covered if you dont let them know you had a speeding fine and lost 3 points 3 years ago. Insurance cover rejected and now stuck with $70,000 debit to pay for loan for my car and other party car.

Right price for the right cover saving over $240

published

Good value however all polices are great until you lodge a claim. Then you find out really how good the policy is. Hoping not to have to find out , hoping it's as good as defined

Good Product

published

Only a new arrival, but good so far .......... Hopefully it will do everything they said it would. Very easy to set up. Only problem was confirmation of NCB, but eventually resolved.

Just joined and saved lots of money

published

I only just switched to Budget Direct, so I can't comment on claims or anything like that. I can just say the set up process was reasonably easy and it was certainly much cheaper than who I was with before.
