Kin Insurance

Kin Insurance is a home insurance startup on a mission to fix home insurance. We use data to make the application process simple, to find our customers every available discount, and to recommend the ideal coverage based on the home's unique needs. Whereas traditional carriers are slow to adapt to a technology-driven world, Kin uses tech to stay lean and efficient and save customers time and money. We also partner with companies that help keep homes safer so our customers get a better deal on both the products and their insurance. In Florida and Texas, we can offer customers a quote with only their street address. We're expanding our reach and will be serving the rest of the US soon.
