Amateur Drone Cover
Our amateur drone policies run right alongside our camera insurance. This means that you can purchase your policy through our camera insurance form (when you click "Get a Quote"). All you'll need to do is make sure you list the drones you own when you're asked. Whether you’ve just bought your very first drone or you were born with a Mavic Pro in your hand, we’ve got cover to suit your needs.
The last thing you want to worry about when you're flying your drone, is whether you’ll be covered should the worst happen to your equipment, making sure you’ve got insurance in place, will help keep those fears at bay.
We’ve added some really useful features to our policy, so take a look at how we can help you.
Theft (Including from a Vehicle)
All our drone policies come with theft (including from a vehicle) cover as standard. As long as you’ve kept your drone and its equipment in a safe and locked part of the car such as the glove box or boot, you’ll be covered.
New for Old Cover
New for old cover simply means that if your drone equipment is lost or damaged beyond repair it will be replaced by the new equivalent model. One really good thing about this feature is that even if your drone is several years old and is no longer made, you will usually be able to replace this with a drone with the same specifications (or as close as possible).
£100 Excess as Standard
With a low excess amount, we’ve tried to make repairs and claims as pain-free as possible. This is the maximum excess you’ll have to pay, not a penny more.
For the globetrotting drone pilots out there; if you’re a keen traveller, our policy will extend around the planet with you for trips up to a whopping 120 days in length. As long as there isn’t a travel advisory against the country you’re visiting, you’ll be covered there.
Always read through your policy wording and exclusions, to make sure our cover is right for you.
We require that you are able to provide evidence of ownership for each item that you wish to insure, in the event of a claim.
We can accept either:
- A receipt, invoice or credit agreement stating the item, value and date of purchase.
Or at least two of the following:
- Clear photographs of your equipment which are date and time stamped.
- A bank or credit card statement showing the date and value of the purchase and the retailer's details.
- Packaging and literature which shows details of the item and purchase.
- A recent valuation or repair statement from a reputable drone dealer stating the item, value and date.
- For items purchased through an online auction such as eBay; a printed copy of the original auction, including photos, description and auction number as well as the relevant proof of payment.
