Budget Direct Insurance is a big and famous insurance company that I am sure you have seen either being featured on TV, on posters on the train, bus, billboards, and even online. I have heard many of my friends give exceptional feedbacks regarding them for the amount of benefits the company provide, and I have witnessed with my own eyes that it is true.

Features and Coverage

Budget Direct offers Car Insurance, Home and Contents Insurance, Travel Insurance, NSW CTP Greenslip, Life Insurance, Pet Insurance, and Roadside Assistance. With so many different types, I will give a general review for each of them.

There are four options you can choose for your Car Insurance:

  • Comprehensive Car Insurance - There are two types of comprehensive covers: Gold and Standard. They both basically offer the same things however with different limits. For example, a Standard cover includes $100 per day for emergency transport but only up to $300. A Gold cover also allows $100 but up to $850 total. In my opinion, if you can afford it, defiantly go for Gold, but if not, Standard is just as good too.

    It should be noted that a few things only the Gold Comprehensive includes but Standard does not. Some of them are debris removal, death $5,000 benefits, and $1,000 cover for replacing keys and remotes.

  • Third Party Car Insurance - This provides protection if your vehicle caused damages to someone else's property. There are two type of Third Party cover: Standard, and one that includes fire and theft. The Fire and Theft policy includes additional features such as hired vehicles. However both plans include a lifetime guarantee on repairs, $3,000 cover for uninsured motorists extension, lump sum, and access to an after-hours claims helpline.
  • NSW CTP Greenslip
  • Roadside Assistance

In their Home and Contents Insurance policies, you will be able to be protected in a range of events such as storm, rainwater, theft, lightning, earthquake, and fire. Temporary accommodations are offered. Up to $20,000,000 in legal liability can be claimed. If you have a credit card, you will be pleased to know that up to $1000 can be protected.
