Time to consider Budget Direct Pet Insurance!

Pet Insurance Solved™ with Budget Direct

Why consider Pet Insurance?

Pet insurance can give you peace of mind knowing you can recoup some of the costs in the event your dog or cat suffers an illness or injury. With the unpredictable costs of vet visits, not having pet insurance could mean the risk of having to make a difficult decision if an unfortunate worst-case scenario occurs.

According to Roy Morgan (2018), Australia has one of the highest household rates of pet ownership in the world, at around 62%. That means for our 9.2 million households, 5.7 million have at least one pet – around 3.6 million with dogs and 2.7 million with cats.

But while pet-ownership statistics are high, pet insurance isn’t on the same level. Roy Morgan research shows that of the 7.3 million Australian pet dog or cat owners, only around 600,000 have insurance to cover their pets against accidental injury or illness, ongoing medication or repeat vet visits.

The purpose of pet insurance is to reimburse you some of the cost of veterinary expenses in the event your dog or cat is injured or becomes ill. Essentially, it helps give you peace of mind that you can afford your pet’s treatment should the unexpected happen.


If your dog or cat gets sick or injured, Budget Direct Pet Insurance can help you financially by reimbursing up to 80% of your eligible vet expenses, for up to $12,000 per year. Terms, conditions, limits, exclusions and an excess apply. For full details, please read the PDS available at Budget Direct Pet Insurance
