3rd Party Liability Cover

A compulsory cover with a limit up to £100m. It covers you against any 3rd party personal injury or property damage. The most expensive part of a drone could be the payload, and this is covered whilst in flight, in transit and in storage.

Loss or Damage

You can add cover for the loss or damage to the drone itself, any payload such as camera or spraying equipment plus any ground based equipment.

International Cover

Policies can also extend for use overseas, although some territories are excluded. Please contact us for full details as this can change from time to time.
