Hi,

I’m looking for recreational liability insurance for my new Mavic Pro platinum while on holiday in Europe but am finding this very difficult as I’m Australian.

Ideally I only need cover for a week so paying the yearly $265 fee from IDRA seems excessive.

The UK, USA and Germany all seem to have plenty of options but generally  it appears Australians aren’t covered.

Any tips on this would be appreciated.

I would suggest to contact DMO https://www.deutsche-modellsport ... es/application.html and ask them how you can get their insurance. It is less than 40 Euro per year and covers all countries except the USA. It is the cheapest insurance in Germany that I am aware of and I have it myself.

FPV UK (fpv.org) annual membership is £19.99 and provides £5,000,000 of public liability insurance for recreational use of drones/model aircraft in the UK. As a British citizen this covers the whole of Europe but for non Brits such as yourself it's just UK airspace. You may be better off arranging insurance separately for each country you intend to visit as a global policy may be very difficult to find and cost hundreds or even thousands if you do.

Hi Wachtberger, thanks for the tip but I emailed DMO and they cannot offer me an insurance as my residence is not in Europe which is necessary for our contracts.

A CW, according to their website FPV UK would be good if I was in the UK but non UK residents are not covered in Europe.
