Insurance - has anyone here ever used the Drone Cover Club?

I realise that insurance isn’t essential for sub 250g drones but when I get a DJI Mini 2 I plan to take out some insurance just to be on the safe side - this will be third party public liability and personal accident.

While searching I came across the Drone Cover Club and also see that it’s listed in another thread here but I’m curious if anyone here has any experience with them.

Just under £30 a year seems like a good price too.

Have a look at this section in Drone Scene …

Lots of comparisons etc including Drone Cover Club :+1: :+1: :+1:

Have a look at FPVUK if you’re only after public liability etc.

I use DCC for similar insurance (want to be responsible). The buying process was easy, they did want to see a flyer Id tho. I already had done the test so that was fine (test is pretty easy and covers good material, I’d recommend everyone does it even if not strictly needed). Haven’t had to claim yet tho which is the ultimate test :slight_smile:

If I recommend you I get a fiver, but not sure what you get!

Thanks for all the great advice folks, much appreciated. :smile:

I’ve got my drones insured by them and always seem to have a good price , I’ve never had to claim though but they are part of the same group I have my shooting insurance with so it’s a big company

Just to add to ScottyDog’s comment: FPVUK.org membership is £19.99pa and includes our Article 16 Operational Authorisation (you can fly closer to uninvolved people, in more places, etc), we have a direct link with the CAA for Operator ID renewals and our competency test is accepted as proof of competency (equivalent to a Flyer ID)*, you also get discounts off A2 CofC courses, Moonrock insurance for your drone, DJI stuff, etc which more than pays for the membership fee.

And we have a (free of charge) practical achievement scheme too if you’d like to improve your flying skills/ confidence.

For a Mini 2 our link up with a Moonrock means you pay them £34.99 + our £19.99 = £54.98 for £5m public liability insurance, all the benefits mentioned above, plus cover for accidental damage, fly away, etc. That’s available on fpvuk.moonrockinsurance.com once you’re a member.

We will also have a direct link with the CAA for Flyer IDs as of next week. So anyone who does our CofC: drone law will automatically get a CAA Flyer ID.

All the best
