Will car insurance pay for replacement keys for my Ford Focus?

I have car insurance through GEICO with roadside assistance. Will they pay for replacement keys?

Answer
“Even if you have roadside assistance through your car insurance company, you’re unlikely to get the replacement cost of your car keys covered.
By insurance standards, your car keys are considered personal property. Car insurance doesn’t cover any personal property unless you have an RV policy that includes personal effects coverage.
Homeowner’s insurance may replace car keys under personal property coverage, but you’ll need to review your policy’s terms and conditions to confirm.
If replacement keys aren’t covered, you’ll need to find a reputable locksmith or visit your dealership for replacements.”
