Are the Belongings that I Take on Vacation Covered Too?

Coverage is available for personal property owned or used by you while it is anywhere in the world.


How Much of My Personal Property and Liability Coverage Is My Landlord's Responsibility?



Will I Be Protected If My Dog Bites Someone?

In the event that your coverage is terminated, either by the carrier or you, there will be additional rent of $10.00 per month added to your account as a non-compliance fee.

Where Does the Non-Compliance Fee of $10 per Month Go?

Why Would I Just Not Pay the $10.00 per Month Instead of Buying Insurance?

The additional rent payment of $10.00 per month does not provide you any insurance coverage. Therefore, you would have no liability or contents coverage, leaving you personally liable.
