Portfolio of covers available on a single policy

Direct Line has launched Select, a premium suite of products designed for customers requiring higher levels of cover than standard policies typically provide.

The insurer says the new products offer more coverage and higher levels of customer service. Customers can choose one product only or a portfolio of covers on a single policy with one annual renewal date. Covers on offer include home, car, pet, travel and breakdown insurance.

"We are offering customers the service of our group of specialist providers who can repair and replace standard household items such as televisions and audio equipment, but also source or have made bespoke sentimental items of jewellery," said Stuart Ballantyne, head of Select at Direct Line, in a statement. "For example, if a customer had a pair of hand made earrings stolen, they would either be offered cash, help in finding a replacement or have a set made if they were no longer available.”

In addition to a single renewal date, Select has a five-star rating from Defaqto.
