Types of drone insurance

We are able to provide you with the cover you need, so create a custom policy suited to your commercial business operations. Choose from the following options

Liability only

Commercial drones whether for aerial photography, mapping, farming, construction or any other use could potentially be a public liability risk.  At DRONE GUARD, our products mitigate against the risk of damage to property belonging to others or injury to people.  Your business suffers no financial strain with our coverage other than the excess.  So if you are planning to operate a drone on a commercial basis call us now to discuss the legal requirements needed to operate a drone commercially and to get cover.

Our coverage includes

  • Legal fees incurred through damage of property, physical injury to someone or third party claims.
  • The cost of repairing or replacing the damaged property of a third party.

If you’re starting a new business and will be using a drone for commercial purposes you will need to be a Irish Aviation Authority (IAA) licenced pilot and will require insurance.  If you operate a drone for commercial purposes and are not authorised by the IAA you will be breaking the law and could be subject to a fine.  With a DRONE GUARD insurance policy, you receive a comprehensive plan created just for you to cover you and your drone business.

We can also cover drones for

  • Drone theft
  • Loss of drone mid-air or in transit
  • Accidental damage
  • Damage that occurs when an accredited third party is operating the drone and such pilot must be listed as an authorised operator
  • Accidental injury to another person caused by your drone operation
  • All legal expenses for liability claims

Flexible insurance covers for every business

DRONE GUARD provides additional drone insurance for commercial operations to help you get the most comprehensive policy and offer complete peace of mind.  You can add any of the following to your existing plan for better coverage:

Cost of trespassing: The trespasser cover protects you in the event of damage to any crops or property when collecting your drone.

Worldwide Cover: If your business takes you around the globe our worldwide cover protects you.  Each country will have different terms and conditions due to variances in local law.  Please contact us to find out more about our insurance cover for international commercial drone use and which countries are excluded.
