Are my personal items not protected by my homeowners or renters policy?
Standard homeowners and renters insurance rarely provides adequate coverage for your personal items in day-to-day life. Risks that are specific to your belongings (such as mysterious disappearance for your jewelry or third-party liability for your bike) are not covered. Perhaps the largest drawback is that the maximum payout per item is normally capped at a relatively low amount (i.e. $1,500), while keeping a high deductible (i.e. $1,000) per claim.

What's the difference between Oyster and warranty plans?
Oyster offers insurance, which is different from warranty protection. Warranties typically only cover manufacturing defects. Insurance covers all the important and common risks, including theft, loss, and accidental damage, at a minimum. Depending on the specific product you insure, insurance will also cover risks specific to that product, such as third-party liability, medical payments, and mysterious disappearance.
Is Oyster a licensed insurance business?
We sure are! Oyster operates as a licensed property & casualty insurance agency for selling insurance policies. We work with a select group of top-rated insurance companies to underwrite the insurance products that we offer. This allows us to offer a wide range of products and the most comprehensive coverage available.
