Belairdirect is based on the principle of innovation, a commitment that was exemplified when the company became the first loss insurer in North America to offer an online quote back in 1997. Today, belairdirect continues to seek out innovative ways to provide top-notch customer service and offer opportunities to save on coverage policies.
