What is renters insurance?

The Bankrate.com financial term of the day is: "renters insurance."

When you're renting a place that's not your property, you want to protect the stuff that is. That's where renters insurance comes in.

While you're making rent payments, it's also a good idea to shell out some money for renters insurance to cover what's yours in your rented dwelling.
