Watch: A Photographer’s Quest for Renters Insurance

Jetty stands out from other new renters insurance companies because of Jetty Passport Deposit and Jetty Passport Lease, two optional services that provide the security deposit and a lease guarantor co-sign. Both services can help renters get a foot in the door towards renting and are available for an additional fee. Experts point out it’s worth reading the fine print of these services to understand the associated costs.
