Your big household bills

79% of Australians will be taking some action to save on their energy bills this summer. It's a good idea to stack up on energy-saving habits to avoid spending a lot on electricity this summer. This includes turning off appliances by the wall, keeping the blinds down to keep your home from warming up too much and using a fan instead of the air con where possible. Combine all of this with finding the best electricity deal so you can supercharge your savings.

The cost of living pressure experienced by Australian households sits in the extreme range at 79%. That's why it's so important to stay on top of your household bills.

Preparing for emergencies

59% of Australians within a 10km radius don't have a bushfire survival plan and just 47% Aussies have bushfire and flood protection included in their home insurance. If you're yet to take out home and contents insurance, now is the time to do so. When you take out a home insurance policy, you won't be covered for bushfire damage claims in the first 72 hours.
