Homeowners insurance from Esurance protects you financially when there’s damage to your home, as well as other structures on the property like sheds and gazebos. It also covers damage to your personal property, including electronics and appliances, caused by acts of nature like fire, lightning, wind, snow, sleet, and ice.

An Esurance renters insurance policy covers you in case your personal belongings are damaged or stolen. It also covers your financial liability if someone is injured while visiting a property you’re renting, as well as additional living expenses you incur because your rental is damaged by a covered loss.
Bottom Line: Is Esurance a Good Insurance Company?
