Excellent company

This is first as we usually use bank offer. But as I didn’t buy trip through bank needed insurance from elsewhere. Checked several
other companies who were in a couple of cases twice as much as Direct. We use Direct for our house insurance as well and find them great.

Exact Travel Insurance I needed without any hassles

Never. This is my first time.
Exact Travel Insurance I needed without any hassles. Your review table needs updating though as it won't let you submit anything less than twenty words. Make it 20 characters!

Didnt make a claim so cant rate it. It was an easy purchase though

This one time. It was easy to purchase online. Straight forward. I dont have anything else to say. 20 word minimum is a bit rough guys.

Good peace of mind

This is the first time I have had travel insurance with this company. Fortunately didn't have to submit a claim but cover seemed to be very good. Will use again in the future.

Purchase Experience

I purchased on line. The process was straightforward. After purchase I was unsure of one of my responses. I was given clarification using the chat facility. I then modified my policy and an adjusted certificate was issued. Very happy so far. Can’t make any comments on the claim process.

Insurance claim madeNo

Easy to purchase, didn’t need to use it though.

Never used before, first time. Price was right and we already have our cars and houses covered by real so it met what we needed and a familiar brand.

5 out of 5

This is the first time I have used Budget Direct but not the last. I found the premium very well priced and easily applied

Impossible outreach from South America

Couldn't use their doctors network in Argentina. Try to call to the number on the website (for medical service in South America) and couldn't get through. Hired the service in Brisbane before my trip, when I try to reach them from Argentina (through chat) they said I have to call to a number to be able to know what hospital to use...
Wouldn't use this travel ensurance if going to South America...

Never received any communication

Never received confirmation or a PDS despite an email stating that I was going to receive one in 24 hours.

First time using budget direct

As a first time user the process of getting travel insurance online was quick and easy, and the price seemed good in comparison.

Too early to review policy

First time I have taken out a policy with BD, ask me to review next June after the trip. The policy seems reasonable, like all insurance policies you will not know good it is unless you need to make a claim

Great customer service & good value

I decided to go with Budget for the first time because it was better value than the travel insurer I used previously, so glad I did. I ended up catching the flu whist I was travelling in Hong Kong, and had to go to hospital as an outpatient.
All together it cost be around $1,500 Dollars with all the tests, consultants and medication.

When I got back to Australia the first guy I talked to was super helpful, and once I completed the claim online I for a message back 2 week later telling me that I will getting around $1,300 back on the medical expenses (minus the excess).

Questions & Answers

My husband and I are going on holidays from 9/9/19 to 30/10/19. We are going to Norway, Finland,Sweden,Denmark,Iceland,Spain, Italy. We won’t be doing any dangerous snow activities, only a group glacial 2 hour walk, car hire in Iceland and self guided easy walks in Spain and Italy. We are both retired, so we don’t need any insurance to cover missed work days. We were wondering if you could suggest a full comprehensive insurance for us during this time. Thank you. Sue

Planning to travel overseas next year and main concern is the obvious possibility of a 103 year old very close relative dying. She is currently in excellent health and still very able to move around on her own but as with most elderly people, she does take prescribed medication for blood pressure. Does your cancellation policy cover such unforeseen events?
