Legally, the insurance obligations vary depending on whether you fall into the category of a commercial or recreational drone user.

For commercial users, specific insurance regulations apply. In contrast, if you operate your drone for recreational purposes, these insurance requirements do not come into play.

Commercial drone pilots are obligated to adhere to regulation EC785/2004, which mandates the presence of minimum levels of third-party insurance. This coverage encompasses both public liability and aviation-specific liability.


With Moonrock, you can expect at least public liability insurance as part of your coverage.

While insurance is not compulsory for recreational drone users, Moonrock extends its offerings to include equipment protection alongside public liability insurance. This means that Moonrock safeguards your drone and various equipment, including items like laptops, tablets, and chargers, whether they are in storage, in transit, or actively being used on location.

The price of drone insurance is determined by factors such as the coverage type, policy duration, and the specific drone being insured. To get a quote for the coverage you need, please enquire with us.

Moonrock provides insurance options for most types of drones. Feel free to reach out to a Moonrock team member to inquire about the coverage eligibility for your specific drone.
