Meet America’s #1 Home Insurance
If you think that insurance has to be a tired or old-fashioned concept, think again! Lemonade is reinventing insurance, making it a more comprehensible, convenient–and most importantly–affordable component of our lives.  Since Lemonade only takes a flat fee from the monthly premium users pay them, they gain nothing by delaying or denying claims and as a result pay claims as quickly as possible, in as little as 3 minutes in some cases! Ready to experience the Lemonade difference for yourself? You could start saving big on homeowners or renters insurance in as little as 90 seconds! Click here to get started.
