We launched Experian Boost to help people improve their creditworthiness and access the right financial products for them. Working with partners like Santander allows us to offer more choice to people at the moment they need it, in a way they can afford.”

About Experian Boost
Experian Boost is an exclusive free service that helps consumers to instantly improve their credit score by contributing regular transactional information, such as council tax and subscription payments, to their credit information.
Experian customers can connect their bank account to their Experian account, via Open Banking. Their accounts are then scanned for an up-to-date view of how they manage their money before the level of score boost is calculated. Users can increase their credit scores by up to 101 points, which could mean a customer moves up two score bands.
Lenders are using these additional data points to make more risk based decisioning. With the rising cost of living and consumers finances being stretched, the value of additional data points means lenders could make more informed lending decisions and offer credit to a wider range of people.
Almost 1.2 million people in the UK are already using Experian Boost, with 63% receiving an instant increase to their Experian Credit Score.
