Huddle insurance and Telstra Plus – better together

Huddle uses the latest technology to create simple, online car and home insurance, packed with powerful features like Zap Claims™, Pay As You Drive car insurance and Kanga Cover™.

This new partnership enables Telstra Plus members to earn Telstra Plus points when they insure with Huddle, and it’s all made possible by a seamless customer experience that integrates with the Telstra Plus app and website.

“To say we’re excited about this partnership is an understatement.  Huddle and Telstra share a mutual drive to innovate and solve real customers problems. By combining Huddle’s revolutionary insurance and Telstra’s incredible rewards program, we’re enabling customers to get great cover with Huddle and new tech such as Google Nest, wearables  and tablets with Telstra Plus” said Open Co-Founder Jason Wilby.

About Telstra Plus

The Telstra Plus rewards program has been running for 18 months, and offers members exciting benefits and rewards.

“This partnership is an exciting milestone for Telstra and our 2.5 million customers who have signed up to the Telstra Plus rewards program”, said Telstra Group Executive Michael Ackland. “Part of our T22 strategy, it’s all about offering members fantastic access to exclusive offers and benefits with other leaders in technology, and in the insurance space, Huddle certainly fits that bill.”
