Affordable apartment insurance for NYC.

Coverage for every square inch of your jr. studio.

  

Protect your portable electronics

  

Additional coverage for valuables

Whether NYC is a pit stop on your way to the ‘burbs or where you’ll be for life, you deserve to protect your things from the potential hazards of city living. Jetty Renters Insurance covers your things from theft, burst pipes, bedbugs, or even an oven-turned-sweater-storage fire. We also offer extra coverage options, called “Power-Ups,” to help you customize a plan. Need to protect an engagement ring that you might lose? A smartphone you’re (almost definitely) going to drop? We’ve got you covered. And you can get it all for as little as $5 a month.

Protection while you hang in Hamptons.

  

Protection when you travel

  

Additional coverage for lost items

Just because you’re on vacation in the Hamptons (or Wildwood, we don’t judge) doesn’t mean you lose the protection of Jetty Renters Insurance. We’ve even got you covered when you’re traveling internationally. And, you can add our Portable Electronics Power-Up, starting at just $3/month, to cover your smartphone, laptop, and tablet if you crack the screens, lose them, have them stolen, or drop them in the pool.

Unlivable apartment? You don’t have to couch surf.

  

Increase in living expenses covered

After a fire or other covered accident, if your place becomes uninhabitable, Jetty is ready to step in. We never want you to say in an unsafe place, or on your friend Jared’s couch, so we’ll cover your basic living expenses and put you up in a reasonable hotel (sorry, no Plaza!) until you can move back in. Yay for you. Yay for Jared.

Nearly 85% of Brooklynites add our Portable Electronics Power-Up to their plans to protect their smartphones, laptops, and tablets from loss, theft, damage, and other unexpected mishaps.

If you’re looking to save a little extra on your renters insurance, do the Queens thing and switch to annual billing.

Jetty Renters Insurance plans offer four basic types of coverage:

Contents coverage.

Loss of use coverage.

Help with living expenses in the event a covered loss makes your place uninhabitable.

Protection if you’re financially liable to someone else (perhaps as a result of damaging their property, for example).

Medical payments to others coverage.

Helps pay someone else’s medical bills due to a no-fault incident on or near your property.

Of course, no two renters are the same. That’s why we offer Jetty Renters Insurance Power-Ups that can be added to any of our affordable renters insurance plans. These features (technically known as “endorsements" in the insurance world) offer extra protections like Portable Electronics Power-Up, Valuables Protection Power-Up, Bedbugs Protection, and even Airbnb Host Theft Protection. Choose the Power-Ups you want, tailoring your apartment insurance in New York to your specific needs.

Jetty is the new frontier of renter’s insurance. Insurance through the big five is like maintaining a landline. Jetty is the iPhone X.

If Sandy strikes again.

What happens if a hurricane hits the city? Jetty Renters Insurance offers protection from hurricane damage in some instances—what it comes down to is the difference between damage specifically caused by the storm (e.g., wind, debris, etc.) and damage caused by a flood (e.g., storm surge, water, etc.). We cover the first one, which is typical of almost all renters insurance providers in the country. Let’s use an example: If hurricane winds send a cinder block through your window and take out your 56-inch 4K OLED Panasonic flat screen TV, you’re covered because this is damage from wind and debris. If that same 56-inch 4K OLED Panasonic flat screen TV gets damaged or destroyed by the flood waters from that hurricane, you’re not covered. To cover against flood damage, we recommend you supplement your Jetty NYC Renters Insurance with coverage from the U.S. government’s National Flood Insurance Program.
