Esurance Now Offering Renters Coverage In New Jersey

San Francisco, CA — August 7, 2013

Esurance, the direct-to-consumer insurance company, is now offering renters coverage to new and existing customers in New Jersey.

New Jersey residents who rent or lease a condo, home, or apartment can add the coverage to their auto insurance quote or existing auto policy. By doing so, they'll become eligible for the Renters Plus™ discount*, which can provide additional savings on their car insurance premium.

There are three great reasons to get renters coverage from Esurance:

  1. It protects you and your personal belongings — it can cover accident-related medical expenses that occur in your apartment or rental home and replace clothing and other personal items that were stolen or destroyed in a fire in a covered incident
  2. It's affordable — coverage costs $10 a month on average**, but replacing a stolen HDTV could cost ten times that
  3. It extends to more than just your residence — a laptop stolen from your car is a covered incident under an Esurance renters policy

Current Esurance customers with a New Jersey car insurance policy can add renters coverage today by simply calling 1-800-ESURANCE (1-800-378-7262).

Esurance empowers people to make smart choices about their car insurance by offering easy-to-use online tools, such as Express Lane™ and Coverage Counselor®, comparison quotes, and a convenient mobile app, along with 24/7 customer service. The company is backed by Allstate, the largest publicly held personal lines insurer in the U.S.

*The Renters Plus discount will be applied as long as the renters coverage remains on the policy; if renters coverage is removed from policy, the discount will no longer be applied.

**Average monthly cost and annual premium figures based on renters coverage policies purchased between 8/25/2012 and 7/31/2013. Your premium will depend on the details of your selected coverage and your specific property. Coverages subject to availability and qualifications. Terms, conditions, limits, and exclusions will apply.
