Budget Insurance group

International Insurance Innovators

ibuyeco is part of the Budget Insurance group, established in the late 1970's. Internationally, the group administers over 3 million policies and has grown to become an international leader in personal lines insurance. Since its formation the Budget Insurance group has lead the way in innovating new methods for selling and administering insurance. We've made it easy for our customers to buy high quality, lower premium insurance and we've continued to set new standards for the insurance industry as one of the largest direct personal lines insurers in South Africa and one of the largest direct personal lines insurance intermediaries in the United Kingdom.

Budget Insurance group set up its Australian operations, Australian Insurance Holdings, in 1999, and has experienced exceptional growth and now employs over 500 people in Australia.

Concerned about the worrying effects that CO2 emissions from cars was having on our environment the group decided to create ibuyeco, an international car insurance brand and service that is designed to make it very easy for the public to offset 100% of their car’s annual carbon emissions*. ibuyeco 100% Carbon Neutral Car Insurance is now available to the public in Australia and the UK.
