Esurance Offers Exciting Choice for Renters Coverage in Arkansas

______

San Francisco, CA — October 10, 2013

Esurance, the direct-to-consumer insurer, is now offering renters coverage in Arkansas.

Arkansas has over 188,000 apartment residents*, and renters can get protection for $10 a month on average.**

Renters coverage in Arkansas is available to new and existing Esurance customers. Arkansans can add the coverage to their car insurance quote or existing auto policy to qualify for the Renters Plus™ discount,*** which can provide additional savings on car insurance premiums.

Basic renters coverage from Esurance typically provides:

  • Funds to repair or replace valuables that are damaged or stolen
  • Liability protection in case guests are injured — including medical payments to help with their injury costs plus legal expenses in case of a lawsuit
  • Additional living expenses for things like food and shelter if a covered loss temporarily drives the renter out of their home

Renters coverage offers a range of benefits for Arkansans who rent or lease a condo, home, or apartment. With Arkansas having the seventh-highest percentage of pet owners in the U.S, renters coverage can help with things like medical payments in case dogs injure a guest. Plus, if regional risks like wind, hail, or fire damage belongings, Arkansas renters coverage can help pay to replace them.

Esurance strives to help people save money and make smart choices with a wide array of insurance products, from car insurance to renters coverage. The company offers convenient online tools — like Coverage Counselor®, Esurance Mobile app, and Express Lane™ — and award-winning customer service.

Arkansas residents can get a free renters quote at the Esurance website. Esurance car insurance customers who want to add Arkansas renters coverage to their policy can do so by calling 1-800-ESURANCE (1-800-378-7262).
