Drone insurance

5 comments

Hi there! Does someone of you have a drone insurance for damage? How much do you pay and is it worth it?

I was thinking of make an insurance beacuse I will use it for a couple of journeys this year and it could may be useful.

Hey @Leon Riener this is a good question that I'm trying to solve as well as some companies will not cover all countries I go to & others don't seem to accept all citizenship. So I guess the first question to ask is what is your nationality. If UK or US.. then most agencies should accept you.

 

If not, then I recommended recently to @Stanly to check these guys out https://www.coverdrone.com as they say to cover worldwide.. I haven't got any return yet from them so if anyone has some info it would be great to share the feedback here in prevision of a larger post later on.

 

Where do you wanna go to fly this year?

Maybe we could gather some info to complete the countries' guides with an insurance section.

Hey @Leon Riener , did you get any closer in your research? This week I'm intending to look at all offers online & publish a guide based on their answers. So far, I've about 10 companies in mind but all are specialized in different categories/countries so will try to make it clearer for all. Wondering if you had fine something suitable on your end in the meantime?

@Leon, not sure if you're still looking but I've just sent a survey to 30 drone insurers to ask them all the questions & be able to display results in an easy manner for us.. Hope this will help.. should be ready by 15th of March 👊

Hey! Sorry I totally forgot to answer. Meanwhile I made an insurace for damage at a Swiss insurance company called "Simpego". Unfortunately you can only get insured if you live in Switzerland.

 

My conditions:

- 1 year insurance

- 43.- CHF bounty (Swiss Francs = exactly the same worth as US dollars)

- Sum insured: 1100.- CHF

- For my Mavic Pro Patinum

- Deductible: 50.- CHF

- Wear is not insured

- Worldwide (very important, who wants to film only in one country)

- If they replace it once, the insurance is dissolved

 

I think for 43.- CHF it's a very good deal. But I guess it's different in every country.

 

Cheers!

Hey @Leon Riener , just wanted to thank you and tell you first that your feedback inspired me to do a complete travel section to compare drone insurances & offer links to the platforms. If you know any other ones or hear from your mates any local ones.. please share them so I can add them.

  • Its seems obvious that when you go to the Swiss Alps high in the mountains, you expect the calm and scenery that goes with it. You're in seek of the bells of the cows and the voice of other hikers walking on the other side of the valley.. Unfortunately for the Aescher restaurant's guests, all this is over thanks to the establishment's amazing location just below a cliff, yet above the Appenzell Innerrhoden valley making it a wonderful and spectacular view for all. But this is when troubles come, combining a great scenery with an easier access place is usually always a good recipe for unaware drone pilots to get this shot they've seen over Youtube. Swiss drone laws are extremely clear, as you shouldn't fly closer than 100 m to a group of 24+ members without their approval. In this case, the laws might not be fully adapted as indeed most pilots would fly away from these 100 m limit but the echo from the cliffs amplify dramatically the noise from the propellers disturbing every other guest's lunch and dinner. The restaurant has called its local council to ban drones over its boundaries, we believe its a shame that dialogue is closed and would like to get your thoughts here? There are a few of our members from Switzerland, it would be great to get your inputs on this story to see how we can prevent it elsewhere as this will become more and more common scenes.
