Renters insurance covers your belongings and more
Protect your possessions and help pay for unexpected expenses with affordable renters insurance from Progressive. In addition to your belongings, renters insurance can pay for medical bills if someone is injured at your residence, lawsuits, and temporary living expenses if you’re forced to live elsewhere because your home is uninhabitable.
Who needs renters insurance?

What is covered by renters insurance?
Renters insurance covers your belongings, living expenses if your place is damaged, and even certain lawsuits against you. Get a renters insurance quote, and experts will help explain all your coverage options.
Coverage for personal property includes clothing, electronics, furniture, tools, and appliances (even if the items are kept in storage or in your car, at the office or with you on vacation). Your possessions are covered against fire, theft/vandalism, tornadoes, water damage, and more. Keep in mind, you'll likely have to add extra coverage for jewelry or other expensive items. You can add these during the renters insurance quote process or give us a call.
Example: Your place is burglarized, and your television is stolen. Your personal property coverage kicks in to replace the TV, minus your deductible.
If you’re liable because someone is injured at your residence, liability coverage pays for others' medical bills (up to the limits of your policy) as well as costs pertaining to a lawsuit.
Example: You host a party and one of your guests accidentally damages furniture in your apartment's party center. Your renters insurance would pay for the damages and any court/legal fees if you’re sued.
Temporary living expenses
If your place is damaged and you need somewhere to stay, your renters insurance can pay for your hotel/living expenses and even pays you back for meals (above what you'd normally pay).
Example: Your apartment's roof is damaged and you’re forced to stay in a hotel for a week. You'll be reimbursed for hotel and dining out expenses.
