Consumer researcher firm ValueChampion compared car insurance prices and found that motorists with us can pay up to 55% less than the average premium offered by other insurers, regardless of your No Claim Discount (NCD).
For instance, a 45-year-old married man with more than five years’ driving experience and a 50% NCD, with a 2020 Toyota Corolla Altis 1.6, and voluntary excess of around S$800 will pay an average premium of just S$398 with us.
The independent study found that the average premium price offered by other insurers for a similar driver and car is more than double that amount, at S$733.

Compare car insurance quotes and save more
At Budget Direct Insurance, we’re able to keep our premiums low by steering clear of unsafe drivers. Fewer claims mean cheaper premiums for motorists like you.
We’re different from most other insurers who automatically include covers you may not need and charge you for everything as a bundled plan. We offer customisable options as add-ons so you pay only for what you need.
Even more ways to save
Here are more ways to reduce your car insurance quote even further.
Your premium will be S$20 (before prevailing GST) cheaper if you opt to go paperless. All your documents will be sent via email and you can also retrieve them from the Policy Manager.
Opt for Singapore Only cover
Want cover just for Singapore? You’ll get a discount on your insurance premium. We’re one of the few insurers who offer this smart way to cut down your costs.
Off-Peak Car Discount
Reduce your premium if you drive an off-peak car.
Excess is the amount that you have to pay towards your claim. At Budget Direct Insurance, our standard policy excess for cars is S$600 (before prevailing GST). You can choose to reduce or increase this amount depending on your claim experience and budget.
For car insurance, you can reduce your excess right down to zero. This will increase your premium but it means you pay less excess if you have to make a claim. You can also increase your excess up to S$1,500 – which means you pay a lower premium.
With car dealers’ warranty restrictions lifted since Dec 2017, you are in control when it comes to repairs. Save on your premium and have your car repaired at one of our conveniently-located Authorised Workshops. All repairs are guaranteed for 12 months. This is the best value option for all car repairs.

Types of car insurance
Among other things, the price of your car insurance — your premium — depends on your level of cover; the stronger your cover, the more it costs. We offer three levels of cover:
Covers loss of or damage to your vehicle due to an accident (regardless of who’s at fault), theft, severe weather, fire, and vandalism. It also covers your liability for accidental damage that your vehicle causes to other people’s property (e.g. their car and home).
Third Party Only Insurance
Covers your liability for accidental damage that your vehicle causes to other people’s property (e.g. their car and home). It does not cover damage to your vehicle.
Third Party, Fire and Theft Insurance
Provides the same protection as Third Party Only plus cover for loss of or damage to your vehicle if it’s stolen or catches fire – but not if it’s damaged in a crash.
