Read our full review of Lemonade insurance.

The good:

  • Low prices
  • Easy online experience

The bad:

  • Mixed customer service reviews
  • Limited discount options

Lemonade is our renters insurance recommendation for most people in Indiana. At just $12 per month, it had the most affordable rates of any company we looked at — 29% cheaper than the average across all insurers.

Lemonade also has a convenient online experience both for quotes and claims. Getting a quote doesn't require providing too much information — the company says that in some cases, it can pay claims almost instantly.

A notable drawback to Lemonade renters insurance is inconsistent customer service. Although it has a high rating from J.D. Power, Lemonade, which does not use agents, also receives a high number of complaints, according to the National Association of Insurance Commissioners (NAIC). Lemonade also provides only a few opportunities for discounts to further lower your rates.

Best renters insurance for working with an agent: State Farm

State Farm offers good rates, well-rated customer service and the option of guidance from an agent.

Read our full review of State Farm insurance.

The good:

  • Low prices
  • Well-rated customer service

The bad:

  • Limited coverage options
  • Few discounts

State Farm is a top insurance option for Indiana renters who still want the security of working with an agent. The company has a good blend of well-rated customer service and low rates that compares well to our top pick.

State Farm has the second-lowest rates we found in the state, just $16 more per year than Lemonade. It also has the second-best customer service among companies available to all drivers.

The biggest drawbacks of State Farm are a lack of ability to customize coverage and a small number of discounts. State Farm offers extended liability coverage and identity theft protection but does not offer extra coverage for replacement cost or water backup damage.

Best coverage options: Travelers

Travelers has the best coverage options we found in Indiana and below-average rates to boot.

Read our full review of Travelers insurance.

The good:

  • The best coverage options we found in Indiana
  • Below average rates

The bad:

  • Poor customer service
  • Must be purchased in annual installments

For renters with specialized insurance needs, we recommend Travelers, as it has the best range of coverage options among all the companies we reviewed. It also has good customer service, and its rates are on the affordable side.

When it comes to coverage options, Travers is unmatched. For example, it offers identity theft coverage, optional replacement-cost coverage, equipment breakdown protection and a decreasing deductible.

While it isn't as affordable as our top pick, Travelers was still among the more affordable options we found in Indiana. Its average price was $16 per month, which is 5% less than the average statewide.

The biggest drawback to Travelers insurance is that you must pay for your policy in annual installments — every other insurer allows you to pay on a per-month basis. For our sample renter, it means cutting a check for $190 once a year. While you can get your money refunded if you decide to cancel midyear, it's a pain to do so. For some renters, coming up with that lump sum may be a burden.

Best for customer service: Amica

Amica has the top customer service we found in Indiana, but you will pay more for it.

Read our full review of Farmers Insurance.

The good:

  • Top-rated customer service
  • Wide range of discounts

The bad:

  • Limited coverage options
  • High rates

Renters looking for strong customer service in Indiana should look at Amica. Although it's one of the more expensive options we found, it can provide a better experience in tough times.

Amica customers file complaints at a rate considerably less than the average insurer. The company receives less than one-third of the complaints expected for a company its size, according to the NAIC.

Strong customer service is important if you have to make a claim, as you will already be dealing with multiple stressful situations. You will have to pay more than that level of service, at $229 per year or 15% more than the state average.
