(NAPSA) If you're renting an apartment or home for the first time, there's a lot to learn about protecting your personal property. You are responsible for any loss due to theft, fire or wind damage, not the landlord or homeowner.
Here are some quick tips from GEICO about renters insurance to help you protect your belongings and get the coverage that's best for you:
The average value of property in a rented dwelling is more than $20,000. Renters insurance can be customized to meet the needs of the policyholder to ensure the correct amount of coverage. GEICO can help you obtain renters insurance that covers liability protection and personal property outside of the dwelling, including stolen luggage when traveling, stolen merchandise when shopping or even engagement rings that have not yet been given.
