Whether your favorite thing about living in Orlando is Disney World or your close proximity to the Everglades, you’ll be able to enjoy your local adventures all the more knowing that your stuff is protected with renters insurance.

In this guide, we’ll dive into the basics of Orlando renters insurance and everything it offers—from personal property coverage to liability protection if you accidentally injure another person or damage their property.

What does renters insurance cover in Orlando?

Your typical Orlando renters insurance policy will include the following aspects. FYI, some insurers may offer additional add-ons, like identity theft protection or flood insurance.

Personal property coverage

Personal property coverage protects your personal stuff, like furniture and electronics, in case of a covered loss. Depending on the type of coverage, you may receive replacement cost (the full amount to replace the item) or actual cash value (factoring in depreciation). A Lemonade policy provides the latter.

Liability coverage

In case someone gets injured at your place or you accidentally damage someone else’s property, renters insurance liability coverage helps cover the medical expenses and legal fees.

Medical payments coverage

This pays for medical expenses if there’s an injury to a guest at your place, regardless of whose fault it is.

Additional living expenses

If a covered loss forces you to leave your place, this coverage (aka ‘loss of use’) helps with the costs of temporary housing and other expenses—hotels, meals, laundry, and so on.

How much does renters insurance cost in Orlando?

The average cost of renters insurance in Orlando is around $267/year or $22/month, according to ValuePenguin.

Meanwhile, the average cost of Lemonade Renters Insurance across the US is just $14/month, as of 2024. On average, Orlando renters insurance rates are slightly higher than the national average, but they’re still quite affordable. 

If you have valuables like digital cameras, expensive musical instruments, or an engagement ring, you might also want to consider extended coverage for those pricey items. At Lemonade, we call that Extra Coverage—here’s everything you need to know.

Is renters insurance required by law in Orlando?

No, renters insurance isn’t required by law in Orlando, or anywhere in the state of Florida. However, your landlord may make getting renters insurance a condition of your lease agreement, in which case you would need to get a policy.

What are the most common causes of renters insurance claims in Orlando?

The most common renters insurances claims in Orlando tend to be personal property claims—whether due to theft or due to damage from extreme weather. In fact, even though theft is on the decline in Orlando, it’s still 26% higher than the national average.

Fortunately, a standard Lemonade renters insurance policy typically covers theft, at home and away from home. So if your phone is swiped at the Magic Kingdom, renters insurance has your back.

But living in Orlando these days also means that your property is always vulnerable to the next natural disaster. 2022’s Hurricane Ian caused more than $200 million of property damage in Orlando, for instance.

Should the next big hurricane strike again, though, renters insurance has you covered for that too. It could cover you for any property damages to your stuff caused by the hurricane and even for additional living expenses should the storm render your rental home temporarily unlivable.

While a standard renters policy sadly can’t insure against the ongoing existential threat of climate change, knowing that your stuff is covered when disaster strikes can still bring some serious peace of mind.

Accessibility is a significant factor when choosing an insurance company. Make sure your provider has an online portal or mobile app to manage your policy and file claims easily.

Although renters insurance rates are typically quite affordable, there are still some ways to further reduce your monthly premium. Here are some of your options:

  • Compare quotes: Before settling on a provider, you’ll want to shop around with a few different companies to find the most affordable rate for your coverage needs.
  • Adjust your deductible and coverage amounts: Increasing your deductible and lowering your total coverage amount will both automatically lower your premium. Just make sure that you’re comfortable paying your deductible out of pocket if need be—and that you aren’t sacrificing any necessary coverage.
  • Check for security devices: If your rental property has a fire alarm or burglar alarm, you could qualify for a discount. 
  • Pay in full: Paying your annual premium in one go instead of month-to-month will get you a discount with many insurance providers, including Lemonade.
  • Bundle: Bundling multiple policies is a straightforward way to cut down on renters insurance costs. You could, for example, get a discount by bundling renters insurance with car insurance. Or, if you’re a pet parent, you can bundle renters with pet insurance by clicking the button below.
