Open and EnergyAustralia come together to offer connected insurance

We’re excited to announce our partnership with one of Australia’s leading energy companies, EnergyAustralia.

EnergyAustralia customers can now purchase car and home insurance, as part of EnergyAustralia’s new innovative product Stack On.  Stack On has been launched by On by EnergyAustralia (part of EnergyAustralia), a platform that gives the business the freedom to create and test new products and services.  This new product enables eligible customers to save time and money by bundling a range of utility, data and insurance services.   Open powers the insurance offer, end-to-end, from quote to claim, with The Hollard Insurance Company as underwriter.

Open Insurance and EnergyAustralia – better together

Open uses the latest technology to create simple, online car and home insurance.    "Increasingly customers are seeking simplicity, and want to buy products and services from one trusted place, or in one stack.  Through our partnership with EnergyAustralia, we have the potential to offer better value, and more relevant and personalised insurance to people where and when they need it most."  said Open’s Chief Customer Officer Nicole Buisson.

According to On, customers can choose from electricity, NBN internet, mobile plans, home, contents and car insurance services in a way that works for them.  The more services a customer bundles, or "stacks", the more Stack On Rewards they'll earn.  These rewards are then credited to a monthly Stack On bill, or can be take as cash back.

“Customers can be confident knowing services are provided by some of Australia’s biggest brands - EnergyAustralia, Optus and Open Insurance (backed by The Hollard Insurance Company). “ says Energy Australia’s Residential Executive, Mark Brownfield

“With Stack On you can see all your services in one online portal, your bills are simplified, and your calls are directed to an Australian-based customer service team. It’s great for busy people and makes budgeting easier.  Having less accounts and passwords to remember is a bonus. Plus, we’re looking to add more products in future, making things even simpler,” said Mark

A Stack On bundled service which includes electricity is initially offered to people in New South Wales and Queensland, while a bundle without electricity is available to those in Victoria, New South Wales, the Australian Capital Territory, Queensland, and South Australia.  Certain additional eligibility criteria are explained in more detail at
