A common misconception is that once your landlord’s insured, you are too. This isn’t the case. Your landlord’s policy will not provide any cover for your personal belongings. Perfect for anyone who currently rents, Renters Insurance suits families as well as young professionals who need cover for their valuables.
While the property you’re renting isn’t yours in name, it is your home. To ensure peace of mind regarding the items that make it your home, it may be necessary to get them insured. You have probably accumulated valuable goods over the years, items that set up your home and mean a lot to you. Be it your TV, furniture or coffee machine, you want these items protected should the worst happen
As well as peace of mind regarding your valuables, our Renters Insurance offers you cover in the event of damage to your contents caused by an insured peril. If you’re leaving your laptop or guitar at home, you want to know you’ll be covered should the worst happen
While Renters Insurance covers your valuables in your rental space, they won’t be covered when they’re on your person outside. With two optional “All Risks” Covers available from PTSB, you can protect your gadgets and certain personal belongings outside the home. You can cover your laptop, jewellery or golf clubs when you have them out of the home.

Accidents happen. Everyone loses or damages important items when they’re in or out of the home. With our optional extra “All Risks” Cover available with our Renters Insurance policy, you can cover for items and gadgets you’d have in your everyday life. We understand that your valuables are just that - valuable. With this in mind, we provide two types of “All Risks” Cover that can be added to our Insurance policies.
Unspecified “All Risks” Cover is an umbrella-style cover that enables those who take it out to select an amount to cover their personal belongings should they lose them. It’s important to protect the items you value against loss or theft, so this cover has been designed with items such as mobile phones, glasses, handbags, etc., in mind.
The maximum combined cost of the valuables (you or any member of the household stand to lose) should give you an idea for how much you insure your belongings for. There's no need to list each item individually. There are limits applied, however, to the cover such as: €2,540 for any individual item, and bicycles up to a limit of €320 in any single period of insurance.
Specified “All Risks” Cover is a cover that enables you the option to individualise items on your policy, specifying their value. Specified items typically include tablets, smartphones and other valuables. As no excess applies to this cover, you wouldn’t have to pay the first part of any claim you may make.
Subject to our acceptance criteria, terms and criteria apply. PTSB applies premium reductions on a reducing basis. To obtain a quote you must meet the following qualifying criteria:
These reductions are all subject to minimum premiums, inclusive of Government levy, as follows: Buildings Cover €135; Contents Cover €105; All Risks Cover €12.60. Please note that an excess will apply. This is the first amount of any loss that you are responsible for in the event of making a claim. This amount is then deducted from the total claim settlement figure.
