Appointed High risk auto insurancethe plan is designed for drivers who find it difficult to obtain car insurance coverage in Singapore because of their accident and or claim history.
Generally, motorists who have had at least two at-fault accidents and/or claims in the past three years will be considered high risk by most insurers and therefore may have difficulty obtaining auto insurance coverage. .
According to the online insurer, the launch of its high-risk car insurance product will help give these motorists a second chance to get back on the road as soon as possible.
Simon Birch, CEO of Budget Direct Insurance, said: “We are very pleased to be able to launch this new product aimed at giving high-risk motorists another chance to get back behind the wheel quickly and easily.

The award-winning digital insurer currently offers the cheapest comprehensive car insurance plans in Singaporeaccording to independent consumer research by research firm ValueChampion.
According to the insurer, one of the ways it maintains its premiums is by only covering safer drivers, thereby minimizing claims and ensuring lower premiums for all of its customers. However, their new high-risk auto insurance will be a separate product designed specifically for motorists who have had two or three at-fault accidents and/or claims in the last three years prior to applying for insurance.
Their higher all-risk auto insurance plan offers a similar level of coverage and protection as the standard Budget Direct Comprehensive. Car insurance policy, with options for the customer to add additional benefits and customize their coverage to suit their needs and budget. Optional benefits available with the High Risk Auto Insurance plan include 24-hour roadside assistance, medical expenses for driver and passengers, and choice of any shop for auto repairs.

The launch of our new product for so-called higher-risk drivers allows us to expand our network and to help provide lower premiums to all drivers, not just those classified as safer drivers.
