Direct Line Group partners with Starling Bank

Direct Line Group has partnered with digital bank Starling to allow current account customers to apply for home insurance directly though Starling’s in-app Marketplace.

The partnership comes as part of Direct Line Group’s commitment to making insurance easier and more accessible for customers.

Starling’s Marketplace allows data to be shared securely with other organisations which gives customers who have opted in access to a suite of financial products that help them manage their money.

This partnership also allows Starling Bank customers to connect their accounts with home insurance brand Churchill, with those who consent to share their data benefitting from a streamlined quote process.

Rob Fleet, Director of partnerships at Direct Line Group, said: “We are delighted to be working with Starling Bank.

“We recognise that the platform economy provides significant opportunities to streamline the insurance experience.

“Starling Bank are at the forefront of this movement and this partnership enables us to innovate as we continue to make insurance easier and better value for customers by providing seamless access to our insurance services through transactional APIs.”

Anne Boden, CEO at Starling Bank, added: “Churchill is a well-known and trusted brand and we are both committed to using technology to financially empower our customers.

“Partnering with Churchill means Starling customers will save valuable time and effort on their house insurance.”
