1. Am I covered if I am traveling or away from home?
Most renters polices include what is called off-premises coverage. This means that belongings that are outside of your home are covered against the same disasters listed in your policy. For example, property stolen from your car would be covered. However some companies may limit the amount of off-premises theft to 10 percent of the amount of personal possessions insurance. If you think you need additional off-premises theft coverage—for example if you travel a lot—shop around for a policy that has the insurance protection you need.
