Hi, I've recently moved to the Netherlands with my Mavic Pro and I'm trying to be a responsible pilot. Dutch law states that to fly a drone (even for recreational use), you must have public liability insurance. I'm struggling to find an insurance company that covers this. Can any of the Dutch members point me in the right direction?

Commercial or hobby? I have a commercial insurance in NL.
I could dig up the details if you want.

Hi, Thanks for replying so quickly. I found an insurer for commercial use, but at the moment I'm just flying recreationally.

If it's the same in the Netherlands as it is in the UK, you might find it difficult to find liability insurance if you're just flying recreationally. Here in the UK, I'm pretty sure (though I'm willing to be corrected) that you can't get liability insurance unless you hold a PFCO (Part 107 equivalent in the USA) and fly professionally.......

No, you can get PLI as a recreational user. I use photoguard with PLI up to a million.

Hello all,

Hope you’re doing well.

I have recently moved to the Netherlands and planning to buy a DJI Spark for my personal use. Is there any requirements or I can buy and use it in the Netherlands? My intentions are to use it for nature/aerial photography.

Where to get best drone liability insurance?

Looking forward to hearing from you soon.

Best regards!

Hey there, new here too. I am from the Netherlands. I just did a quick search for you in dutch..
If you use your drone for recreational purposes it is not mandatory to have a liability insurance, Although it is not a bad idea to get one anyway. These insurances are quite cheap and cover a lot more than drone incidents. Check: Drones: Alles over de regels en verzekeren - Independer.nl

Independer.nl is a good site that has all the info regarding insurances. Just use google translate.. lol

Thank you so much for your quick response.

Yeah, it's a good idea to get one anyway. I will look through it and will definitely apply for it. :)
