Sandra was most efficient in all aspects of my claim; from lodgement of my claim and processing the repair quote submitted by the repairer which was approved the next day!!!

I tried getting a few insurers to quote and underwrite a van converted for disability for a family member but to no avail as it was difficult for them and then through word of mouth contacted Blue Badge Insurance Australia. Briony not only was exceptional in her consultation and communication but made the process so much easier, fast and a pleasure to deal with plus a greater saving going with Blue Badge. Thanks and keep up the good work!

Just recently insured my car with Blue Badge Insurance and the customer service officer was fantastic.I was previously with another insurance company who asked a lot of questions which Blue Badge Insurance didn't. I would definitely recommend them to anyone who is thinking about insurance with them.

I have to say I will never move on from Blue Badge. My insurance had just expired but I didn’t realise it till they called me I spoke to a gorgeous lady by the name of Jenny who took down my financial issues right now and called me later stating they had found another cover with the same coverage as before but managed to make it cheaper for me. I’m now going to pay monthly till I get my super released to me then I will pay the yearly fee again. I honestly thank Jenny and Blue Badge I might have found myself in financial trouble but they were able to work it out for me so I can keep up my insurance.
