It’s no surprise, therefore, that this small state has some pretty big homeowners insurance premiums.

While price is an important factor to consider when shopping around for a Rhode Island homeowners insurance provider, residents should also weigh factors such as the breadth of coverage options and claims services reputations of companies. To help you find the right company for your home and budget, we’ve outlined our picks as well as included an online quote tool so you can easily get started comparing policies and prices!

Allstate

Allstate owns the largest share of the Rhode Island homeowners insurance market. The company is popular among residents of the Ocean State due to its flexible policy options, multiple discount opportunities, and best-in-class educational tools and resources.

Each standard home insurance policy from Allstate can be customized to provide increased protection for your most valuable assets — be it a home office, sports equipment, musical instruments, a yard or garden, or even electronic data.

The company helps you save on your premium by offering rate deductions — like a 30% discount for bundling home and auto insurance policies, 15% for installing protective devices, 20% for having a claims-free history, and 5% just for signing up for auto-billing. Allstate also offers an additional 10% savings for new customers for the first two years of service.

Allstate’s innovative online learning center features an expansive library of articles, videos, and tools to help customers better manage their policies and answer questions on home ownership. The company’s Premium Gauge tool, for example, allows you to see the impact that various factors such as the age of your home, have on your annual premium price. And Allstate’s Digital Locker helps you keep a detailed online inventory of your covered personal possessions, removing the guesswork in the event that you have to file a claim after a loss.

Liberty Mutual

Liberty Mutual is a great choice for Rhode Island residents looking to save on their homeowners insurance policy. The company offers more discount opportunities than many of its competitors — customers can receive premium price breaks for things like bundling policies, insuring a new or recently renovated home, and going claims-free for a certain period of time. Liberty Mutual also extends special deductions and benefits to customers that belong to one of the more than 14,000 organizations and associations in their affiliate partner network.
