As a gal that’s had her fair share of purchasing renters insurance in my younger years (and before we were homeowners), I never really checked into the different types and what each had to offer. Honestly, I simply checked with my auto insurance carrier and took its word for truth. Of course, this was before the age of internet and when my cellular phone came in a giant leather case and plugged into my car’s cigarette outlet! Nowadays, there’s plenty of renters insurance styles and coverage and it’s as easy as knowing the facts and what type of coverage you’re looking for.

Arming yourself with knowledge about what you need in regards to renters insurance will give you the right tool to feel confident in your selection – or help you to realize that you’ve been doing renters insurance all wrong. Here’s six reasons you didn’t know you needed Jetty renters insurance – or need to change yours.

A Security Deposit Is the Worst Investment You Can Ever Make When Renting

There’s no way to get out of a security deposit these days when renting an apartment. It’s a way to make sure that, to be blunt, no one gets screwed over. It’s also an easy way for apartment building owners to get some extra cash out of their renters up front. But did you know that a security deposit is actually a bad investment? It’s true.

There is a way to avoid the hundreds of dollars required for a security deposit if you’re smart about it. Jetty, a company that was created with renters in mind, can help you meet the requirements. With a Passport Deposit (the hip name for its security deposit replacement product), they’ll help you manage a deposit on the apartment of your dreams with a security deposit bond. Here’s the scoop:  Jetty charges a one time nonrefundable fee of 18% to get you set up and covered. It then pays the rest of your deposit to your landlord but you’ll still be responsible for damages that may incur during your rental time. What it doesn’t give you is the right to act foolishly so no trashing, dig?

It Will Help You in Sticky Travel Situations

Did you know that you can have a back-up security plan in case you need it should the worst happen while traveling? Yep. Choose the right renters insurance and you can have peace of mind when you’re 1,000 miles from home or in your bathroom.

Jetty Perks

Regardless of your deductible, Jetty’s got some really beneficial perks that are included in each Jetty Passport at no extra cost. Want to become an AirBnB host but are concerned that your haven will be trashed? Jetty offers AirBnB Host Protection for an extra charge in addition to your policy. Grossed out about bed bugs (aren’t we all?)? Jetty Renters Insurance policies include Bed Bug Protection baked in to your policy. And, while thinking of each of these may be the farthest thing from your mind, if/when they should happen they’ll be the only thing on your mind compliments of the cash you’ll have to dish out.

Jetty has adjustable premiums. They’ll work with you to make sure you have exactly what you need with the price you can afford. Refreshing, right?

Think you don't need renters insurance? Think again. From help with co-signing to help with a security deposit, here's six reasons why you need to consider Jetty Renters Insurance.

You Never Need to Talk to a Human with Jetty Renters Insurance Unless That’s Your Thing

Me? I love talking to actual folks when making important decisions. Mr. Locke? He’d rather hammer a nail through his thumb than talk to a live person on the phone. Another cool feature is that the website is super user friendly and is optimized for folks that are like my husband. You can get an insurance quote and pay for premiums and features. You can also change your insurance level without ever talking to anyone. Or you can chat with a rep. It’s your call. Or not.

Need Co-Sign Help? Jetty’s Your Man.

Let’s say that Mom, Dad, or even Big Bro can’t help you out with your dream apartment when it comes to co-signing. Jetty will step up to the plate and be your guarantor with its Passport Lease. While it will cost you around 5-10% extra per year, it will get you into that haven on the 30th floor if that’s what you dig.

    My husband owns a rental property with my brother in law (it’s a triple decker) and they require a security deposit. I think they recommend renters insurance to all of their tenants, too. It’s a smart move to get it.

    1. Karyn Locke

      Nice! I agree, the investment is definitely worth the peace of mind.

  2. We’ve owned our home for so long that I had no idea about renter’s insurance. Jetty seems like a great way to go when looking for renters insurance. I like that they have a user-friendly website.

      Before we owned our home, I did purchase renters insurance on our personal items. It made me feel safer, but it was a one stop shop type of insurance. I love how Jetty insurance will work with you to make sure you have the proper policy.

  16. Insurance is so important, even for renters. I can’t believe there are so many renters out there who haven’t purchased a plan to protect themselves.

    Will think about it, while shifting to a rented home.

    Wow! I didn’t know that was an option for renters. Good information.
