Do I Need Renters Insurance?
Q: I’m trying to cut back on expenses and am thinking of canceling my renters insurance. My landlord’s policy covers my belongings, right?
A: Probably not. If a fire or other insured disaster destroyed the place you’re renting, your landlord’s policy normally would not cover your personal possessions. Renters insurance pays to replace your belongings and provides for living expenses and liability protection if someone is injured in your rental. The average policy costs about $200 a year—that’s less than $17 a month.
To learn more about renters insurance through AAA Texas, call (866) 552-2287 or go to AAA.com.
Statistics show that traffic-related fatalities increase significantly around the time of New Year’s Eve festivities. That’s why AAA Texas will again sponsor the New Year’s Eve Tipsy Tow program, which offers free rides to drivers who have been drinking. The service is available to nonmembers as well as members and can transport you up to 10 miles from the point of pickup.
You may think you’re okay to drive, but just one glass of wine, one bottle of beer, or one shot of liquor could impair your vision, coordination, and judgment. Ask for a Tipsy Tow by calling (800) AAA-HELP [222-4357]. The service runs from 6 p.m. December 31 through 6 a.m. January 1.

She had her photo taken with the magazine on the Isle of Capri in the Bay of Naples, where American soldiers convalesced during World War II. Take Texas Journey on your next vacation, have yourself photographed with it, and e-mail the photo to us. We might run it in a future issue.
