The Rhino Renters Insurance Program offers embedded renters insurance to create a more seamless, end-to-end experience for renters, building managers and landlords.
New York, NY — October 19, 2021 — Rhino, the leading real estate technology company, today announced its expansion into renters insurance, in partnership with Cover Genius, the leading insurtech for embedded protection. Coupled with Rhino’s core product, Security Deposit Insurance, the new Renters’ Insurance offering will maximize the level of coverage for renters and property managers through a seamless product experience.
“Renters’ insurance is a natural extension of our core offering and a continuation of our commitment to provide renters with smarter and more affordable solutions,” said Paraag Sarva, CEO and co-founder of Rhino, “By adding renters insurance to our product offering, we can offer renters more coverage in addition to our flagship security deposit insurance product. Renters can purchase all the protection they need in one seamless experience.”
The Rhino Renters Insurance Program allows property managers to offer competitive rates for renters across multi-region portfolios while giving renters the convenience of managing their policies in one self-serve platform and the ability to provide proof of insurance seamlessly. Additionally, property managers and renters have 7-day-a-week access to Rhino’s best-in-class customer support. The Rhino Renters Insurance Program is offered for as low as $12.50 per month, now available nationwide.
Rhino’s Renters Insurance Program is powered by XCover, Cover Genius’s global insurance distribution platform that enables the world’s largest digital companies to embed and offer any line of insurance or warranty product directly to their global customers with a single API call, and XClaim, an API for instant payments. With XClaim, Rhino is able to make the first notice of loss (FNOL) process more efficient by providing instant claims payments in more than 90 currencies and through a range of payment methods including bank transfer, store credit, card top-up and digital wallets.
“With a mission to protect the customers of the largest digital companies, we are excited to collaborate with Rhino to help create a more seamless and beneficial user experience for renters and landlords by bundling renters insurance and security deposit insurance,” said Dave Brune, President, Americas of Cover Genius. “With “convenience” being the primary driver of why 70% of consumers want embedded protection integrated into their digital experiences, this partnership comes at a pivotal moment in the property space, where innovative technologies can be used to enhance the rental experience.”
The Rhino Renters Insurance Program will be available in all 50 states.
