Budget Direct Insurance
A part of an international group of companies servicing an estimated 3 million policies around the world, Budget Direct Insurance is one of the more progressive insurance companies in Australia. Budget Direct Insurance issues around 4,500 vehicle insurance policies every week in Australia.
Budget Direct Insurance believes that skilled drivers do not have to pay expensive premiums to subsidise drivers who are considered "high risk". Budget Direct Insurance boasts of having a more comprehensive underwriting compared with other insurers in Australia. Budget Direct Insurance does not elect to insure "high risk" drivers. This allows Budget Direct Insurance to keep a low risk profile and, in turn, provide very competitive insurance rates for skilled drivers.
Budget Direct Insurance has affiliate companies which began its foray into the insurance industry in the 1980s. It has since grown into an innovator in the field of personal insurance. The mother firm is also the biggest vehicle insurer in various parts of Africa, particularly in South Africa. In 1999 the group expanded its operations to include Australia, and A&G Insurance Services Pty Ltd was established to handle insurance for a variety of market segments.
