The middle is boring. It’s neither one thing or another. Middle age, middle of the road, middleman. Not exactly inspiring.

But you know what is inspiring? You.

You can do so much! And because you live in the golden age of the internet, the world is your oyster. You can design your own adventure, try stuff for free, save on insurance. And that’s just the start.

The team at Budget Direct Insurance is all about cutting out the middle man and finding easy ways to do things better. Here are three ideas to inspire you and help you save online.

1. Design your own adventure

In the old days we never really knew what things cost. We had to trust travel agents to do our research. Flight and hotel prices were often a closely guarded secret and we had no way of knowing just how much the travel agent was adding to our holiday price tag.

Now, the world is your playground. And you can not only design a vacation that fits your lifestyle, you also save by booking direct and making the most of internet only offers.

3. Save on insurance – buy direct

Buying insurance online is a no-brainer. It’s quicker, cheaper and it works just as well or even better than doing what your family has always done. Here are simple equations.

Insurance + middle man + commission = expensive + complicated

Insurance + online direct = cheaper + quicker
