All of our policies include the UK as standard and can be extended with our worldwide policy extension. With this you will be fully covered in Europe and some additional countries.
What are the drone laws in Europe?
This is going to be specific to each country. Although we will insure your drone in Europe for any hull damage and public liability you must make sure you have permission from the local Aviation Authority to fly commercially and keep within all the laws for flying in that specific country.
Why does your drone insurance not cover Europe as standard?
We believe in giving the customer the full say with their insurance and letting them tailor the policy to their needs. If some of our customers do not do any work abroad they will not extend their cover, however if they work in any European country they can extend the policy to suit.
