Caller: Budget Direct
after doing a few insurance quotes, one of them being from Budget Direct, my phone started ringing. I didn't answer it as my phone picked it up as suspected spam. If you want cheap car insurance i suggest you try QBE
This number rang a few times, when answered, they just hang up.
Have now blocked it on my mobile.
I imagine budget as I literally just did an online quote. Guess I won’t use budget! No one there when I answered. Assume Budget Direct after online quote not pursued. Now on blacklist Caller: Budget Direct
(not scammer) legit CS centre call
reading the comments... I did an online quote yesterday with Budget and have now had 4 missed calls from this number... Just got insurance quote with InG and then 15 minutes later getting these calls.
Closing my accounts with ing
Caller: (07) 3465 1300
Caller hung up as soon as I answered. This happened only a matter of seconds after I'd used ING Insurance's website to request a callback. Presumably this is an insurer's dodgy method of shortlisting which telephone numbers are genuine, but needless to say it's a very rude and annoying method.

You didn't realise most companies auto renew? That's normal practice, you are the that cancels it, read your email, it probably states that. Left a message saying “what a pain in the f*cking ass” I received a call. I heard heavy breathing. After reading the comments. I did not get an insurance quote or anything if it was budget or ING Caller: Obviously Budget Direct
Did an online and then needed some questions answered and used a different phone to the one I inputted as a contact. Obviously tried to call me while I was on the phone with them anyway!
played music then hung up...no voice communication
Caller: Budget direct I think
So my guess is that this number just steals your info from your cover provider? Some Indian dude tried to sell me healthcare or something and got really rude when I politely said I wasn’t interested.
I too just did an online Budget Direct as part of their competition. The caller just hangs up after calling twice within 30 minutes. I'm a customer of Budget Direct. I will complain to them in the morning! Now I've blocked this number. The call centre must get paid if the number picks up. What a useless waste of time. Caller: Auto and General Insurance/Budget direct
Got an online quote for car insurance.
Their web site insists on getting your phone number before showing the quote but won't be going with them as can get a slightly lower premium and better agreed value on my car with Huddle.
Same experience Caller: Youi insurance
tried to get a quote, but they call to pressure you into going ahead, all I wanted was for a quote to be emailed to me. But no, they just keep calling.
I picked up and a song started playing so I hung up! So random.
