Here’s how we’re making your insurance smoother and more secure
A message from the CEO of Budget Direct Insurance
We're introducing more digital enhancements to help simplify your insurance. Here's how.
At Budget Direct Insurance, it’s our mission to make insurance simple and stress–free.
We strive to ensure that buying and claiming insurance is as straightforward as possible. As a customer myself I don’t want to waste more time than I must buying insurance and jumping through hoops to make a claim. We get it and that’s why we invest so much time refining our processes and our customer journey experience.
So, we’re delighted to tell you about our latest digital initiatives that we hope will help you have a smoother and more seamless insurance experience.
Purchase your car or motorcycle insurance effortlessly through SMS.
Once you've received your insurance quote from us, keep an eye out for a Budget Direct Insurance SMS, originating from the number +65 80284339. All you need to do is respond to our SMS, and we’ll process your policy purchase. It's as simple as that. And for your peace of mind, our SMS number, +65 80284339, is readily searchable and will point you to our website, ensuring you're never left in doubt about its authenticity, and preventing any misconceptions about it being a potential scam. Your trust and security are our top priorities.
Renew your insurance policy via SMS
First off, we have introduced a simpler way for you to renew your car or motorcycle insurance policy. Now you can do it via SMS. It’s a quicker and more secure way to renew your policy.
Prior to your policy renewal you’ll receive a text/SMS message from us. Look out for our Budget Direct Insurance SMS with the number +65 82410878. It’s important to note that it includes the country code +65. You’ll receive the message in plenty of time before renewal. Simply reply to our SMS, and we’ll process your policy renewal.

Budget Direct Insurance e–shopping vouchers
Shopping vouchers have always been a great way for us to reward our customers be it for promotions or receiving incentives. You’ll be pleased to know that we’ve replaced physical paper vouchers with e-shopping vouchers which will not only reduce paper wastage but also, we hope, will reduce any hassle for you. For instance, no more waiting for paper vouchers to arrive in the post and no more carrying and potentially losing your shopping vouchers. You can simply redeem your e-CapitaVouchers via your Policy Manager which you can log into on the Budget Direct Insurance website any time that suits you.
