San Francisco, CA — October 9, 2012

Esurance, the direct-to-consumer personal car insurance company, is now offering renters insurance in Illinois.

Consumers in Illinois can now get added protection for their property and peace of mind for only $16 per month on average.* The renters coverage is offered as an add-on to an Esurance car insurance policy, and is available to both new and existing Esurance customers.

Current Esurance customers in Illinois can add renters coverage immediately by calling 1-800-378-7262.

The coverage is available for Illinois consumers renting or leasing a home, apartment or condo.
