Renters and Tenants Insurance Comparison
Choosing the right insurance policy can be difficult and confusing. OPIC created this comparison tool to assist you with this decision.
HOW TO USE THIS TOOL
Our comparison tool allows you to compare up to 5 different insurance policies. Here’s what to do:
FIRST: Choose a company from the dropdown menu.
If you can’t find a homeowners company listed on the drop down menu, it may be because the company is a farm mutual company (such as Germania or Hochheim Prairie) or a surplus lines company. These companies are not required to file their policy forms with the Texas Department of Insurance (TDI).
SECOND: Choose the policy you wish to compare from the policy drop down menu.
Some companies may offer more than one policy. If you are unsure of which policy to compare, ask an agent or company representative the name of the policy the company is most likely to offer you.
THIRD: Click the "Show Comparison" button.
It’s that simple. Our comparison tool will generate the results in an easy to read chart that allows you to compare each policy.
You may also filter by coverage type.
To filter, simply click which filter options you’d like to apply from the list below. The dropdown menus will then show ONLY companies and policies that fit those criteria. From there, follow the steps listed above to use the tool.
THIS TOOL IS FOR COMPARISON AND INFORMATIONAL PURPOSES ONLY
The results generated by this tool are for informational purposes only.

Always refer to the actual policy language to determine the full extent of coverage under a policy.
OTHER IMPORTANT INFORMATION YOU NEED TO KNOW
This Chart Provides a Summary of Your Policy Coverages
The results generated by the comparison tool are based on the most recent information provided to OPIC by the Texas Department of Insurance. Every effort has been made to keep the information accurate and up to date. The comparison tool generates a summary of the coverages provided by the policies you selected. This summary is not a substitute for the actual policy language. Additionally, a policy may include other coverages not listed on the comparison tool. Always refer to the actual policy language to determine the full extent of coverage under a policy.
Companies Can Endorse Their Policies
Companies can add endorsements to your policy that alter the coverage provided by the base policy. If a company offers or requires an endorsement that affects the coverages displayed on the chart, those changes will be noted. However, since the comparison chart may not show all the coverage provided by a particular policy form, it is important for you to ask the agent or company if any endorsements will be added to your policy.
