Interested in travelling with your drone, but unsure of how to prepare? An important factor to consider is checking out if the travel protection you plan to purchase covers the total value of your drone in case it gets mishandled by the airliner or stolen during the trip, for example. The amount covered on such situations varies across different insurance providers.
Whether the goal is to capture incredible photo or video footage to remember a special moment, share on social media, or use in a personal drone racing league vlog, the following can help ensure an enjoyable experience.
- Chapada Dos Veadeiros, Brazil – Waterfalls, rock formations and outcrops of crystals are easy to admire in the Earth’s brightest point as seen from space.
- Valle Nevado, Chile – The natural surroundings are ideal both as a backdrop or the centre of attention on film or video.
- Like a putter on a golf trip or poles on a skiing vacation, drone equipment is essential when planning to fly a drone when travelling. Because protecting it also means protecting the experience, travel insurance is a must – just in case. In addition to emergency medical benefits for the travelling drone pilot-, further protection included under baggage coverage may be available if a drone or other essential travel items are lost, stolen or damaged (other than while operating it) during their trip. Similarly, if travellers experience a sudden and unforeseen emergency and it was medically necessary to return home, benefits could also be available to transport their drone and related equipment back to them at home. Always check with your travel insurance provider the total amount covered for expenses related to return equipment or belongings.
- Regardless of your ultimate drone-flying destination, consider taking out travel insurance for your trip. Whether it’s in the form of medical emergency, or trip cancellation and interruption, or ideally, a combination of the two, travel insurance from Allianz Global Assistance comes with valuable 24/7 emergency assistance offered by our caring, trusted employees.
