Car insurance shake up offers driver savings

Something big has been happening in the world of car insurance. The industry has undergone somewhat of a shake-up that could bring exciting new ways to save money and drive better value out of your insurance policy in 2024.

In Australia, we’ve seen the launch of innovative new pay as you go car insurance options from Rollin' Insurance and online challenger Kogan enter the market with enticing discounts.

Traditional insurance players like Budget Direct isn’t resting on their laurels either. They’re offering an online discount of up to 15% to encourage drivers to stop paying the lazy tax for sticking with their current insurance company instead of comparing options at renewal time. 

1. Pay month-to-month with no cancellation fees

The standard is excess is $800 (including under 25s) but $3,000 for any unlisted driver so make sure regular drivers are listed on the policy.
