Starling customers can now apply directly from within the challenger bank's app for home insurance from Churchill Insurance.
Direct Line's Churchill brand has been added to Starling's in-app Marketplace, which uses API technology to let customers share data with third parties.
Starling customers who choose to select home insurance through the in-app Marketplace will be directed to Churchill’s quote and buy page after opting in to have some of their details pre-filled. If a customer chooses to convert their quote to a policy, details of the start and end date will be stored within their account with Starling.
Rob Fleet, director, partnerships, Direct Line Group, says: "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."
