Over the last couple of months, the Coverdrone team have been extremely busy working on our latest project which we are pleased to announce has now officially launched – our European Online Management System! We know that drone operators are extremely busy people and are conducting flights at various locations, therefore the online management system enables clients to manage their policy whenever and wherever they are. Although we have been looking after European clients for a number of years now, the introduction of our European Online Management system is an extension of our existing professional services and will make the customer experience a lot simpler and easier.

Instant Online Quote & Buy
The key feature of our new system is that European clients now have the ability to go online and are instantly able to obtain a quote and purchase the policy if desired. Our simple quote process allows a quote to be processed within a matter of seconds. Do not worry if you do not want to buy the policy straight away – your quote is valid for 30 days so you can always log back into your account and purchase the policy later.
Instant Receipt of Policy Documents
We understand, especially for commercial drone operators, that having a copy of your insurance policy documents is extremely important when performing a drone operation. Therefore, we email you a copy of your policy documents as soon as you have purchased your policy online. And don’t worry if you misplace this email, your documents will always be available to you when you log in to your online account.
Online Renewal Process
At the end of a twelve-month cover period, you will receive an email reminder before the existing insurance policy lapses. A simple log-on to the Coverdrone system will then enable you to amend policy details (if required) and renew without any fuss.
Ability To Amend Policies
With our new system, you don’t need to contact us to let us know that you would like to make an alteration to your equipment cover or the limit of indemnity you require, you can simply log onto your account and make the change yourself! You will receive your amended policy documents straight away via email and also a copy will be available on your online account.
24 Hour, 7 Days A Week Access
Although our team are always more than happy to help, we unfortunately cannot be available 24/7. The beauty of the online management system is that you are not limited to office hours to make a change to your policy or to get a new quote – you can log in at any point!
Short Term Cover
Coverdrone is well-known for its industry leading annual policies, however we also offer a flexible short-term solution for both commercial and recreational drone operators. We offer all the fantastic, all-risk benefits of our annual policies for the below periods to clients throughout the UK and Europe:
- Per Day
- One Week
- One Month
- Three Months
- Six Months
There are a number of benefits of purchasing short term policies such as the suitability for infrequent operators, if you operate a seasonal business or if your drone is of a lower value. You may wish to bear in mind, however, the number of times that you anticipate on operating throughout the year, as it may be more financially beneficial to obtain annual cover. We suggest that if you are operating your drone more than fifteen days per year, you may wish to consider our annual option.
Commercial Drone Insurance Policies
Our commercial drone insurance policy provides you with complete peace of mind as it is fully compliant with regulation EC785/2004. Our commercial drone insurance policy is industry-leading for a reason, as we provide cover for features such as:
- No Restriction on Number of Operators
- Aviation Liability Insurance
- Cover For ‘High-Risk’ Premises
- Professional Indemnity Insurance – Invasion of Privacy and Data Protection
- Increased Costs Of Working – Replacement Drone Hire
- Reinstatement of Data Cover
Recreational/Hobbyist Drone Insurance Policies
We are extremely well known for our industry leading commercial policy, however what you may not be aware of is that we also offer a recreational drone insurance policy. There are a variety of benefits of obtaining a leisure policy with us, including but not restricted too:
- Worldwide Cover
- Full Cover Whilst In Transit & Operation
- In-House Fast Claims Service
- No Restriction on Number of Drones or Flying Hours
Free Flight Test Examination Policy
A policy that has proven to be extremely popular since the launch in 2018, is our free flight training cover for clients going through any flight examination with any training provider within Europe. Once registered with Coverdrone, clients are able to obtain a free flight examination policy for either themselves or anybody that may be training within their business.
The key features of this policy are as follows:
- Free Liability Cover
- €1.3 Million Cover As Standard
- Option To Obtain A Further Free Day(s) Cover If Required
- Documents Available Instantly
Simply visit our homepage and click the ‘get a quote’ option in the top right-hand corner. Select the ‘flight test or training cover’ option, and simply fill out the easy to complete form, selecting the ‘free one day flight test’ on the ‘duration of policy’ option.
Public Liability Insurance
We offer public liability insurance as standard on our insurance policies, with the limit for recreational operators being €1.3 million. However, for commercial operators we are able to offer various limits dependent upon your requirements. You can increase or decrease this limit as and when required dependent upon the type of operation you are completing.
As well as public liability, we offer insurance for your drone and any other associated equipment you may use during your operation. We offer unique benefits under our equipment insurance such as:
- Accidental Damage
- Over water
- Hired-In (non-owned) Equipment Cover
- New For Old Cover
Bespoke Referral Process
We know that all commercial drone operations are not the same, and that some can be slightly more advanced than others. We therefore have the ability to refer any bespoke requests, such as beyond visual line of sight (BVLOS) flights, to our underwriters who will provide us with an estimate for your operation. Please do not hesitate to get in touch with us as even if you cannot see your requirements on our policy benefits page, we will always be able to help in some way!
Who Can Use the Online Management System?
All recreational and commercial drone operators based within the European Union can access our online management system.
Although advances in data management and website user experiences give drone customers more choice and flexibility, the experts at Coverdrone are still there to help. We will always be at the end of the phone to offer advice and speak directly to customers. If you have any questions, please do not hesitate to get in touch!
