Our story

xLife was started in 2006 and rebranded to Life Insurance Direct in 2014. The company started making it easier for Australian families to find great value life insurance products with their insurance tech platform. To further enhance the way they protect you and your family’s financial future, Life Insurance Direct launched ComparingExpert in 2017.

How we work

While we provide free online comparison quotes for life insurance via the Life Insurance Direct API, we are continuing to expand our services to different verticals, for example, health insurance and most recently, home loans.

We work with a select group of partners to help us execute fulfilment of the products and services you are interested. We may receive compensation from our partners for placement or their products and services, but there is no cost to you.
