Good value

It was quick and easy to purchase, good variety of options and reasonably good value. Always hard to really review insurance though, since I didn't need to make a claim.

Low cost travel insurance

published

Policy was good value
Haven’t lodged a claim, so no feedback on that
First time using the company
Chose this company base on low cost. Our risks were low - we used a large airline & going to the UK, with reciprocal health care arrangement.

We had a save feeling for a good price.

published

We had a look at the T&Cs which seemed to be reasonable and got a good feeling for the price we paid. The online platform was easy to navigate. Fortunately, we haven't had a claim so can't say anything about this process. Overall it has been a good experience.

It's All in The Name. Budget! Emergency Number Wasn't Working

published

Needed to be admitted to hospital but the emergency number was not working. I was severely sick on 3 different antibiotics, in a hotel room on my own, during Christmas eve and when I was attempting to call their emergency number so that I can be admitted to hospital, their emergency health line was not working! I would call one number and it would tell me to use another. I had to cut my 3 month travel plan down to 10 days. The doctor said I was even at risk of death. All thanks to BUDGET direct.

All I received claim for was for the medicines I purchased, and not through the absolute hell they put me through. DO NOT GO WITH THIS COMPANY.
