A deductible is the amount of a covered claim that is your responsibility before insurance starts to pay for a covered loss. And a policy limit (or “limit of liability”) is specified in your policy as the maximum amount your insurance company will pay for a covered claim.
Some renters opt for a higher deductible in favor of a lower premium. But if the unexpected happens, you need to make sure you can afford to pay the deductible you chose.
