UK-based insurtech firm Flock is joining the fight against coronavirus. The company has pledged £10,000 of free drone insurance to pilots working on COVID-19 crisis response. Pilots can learn more and find out if they are eligible here.
In an extraordinary show of additional industry support, Flock CEO Ed Leon Klinger writes that the company will offer round-the-clock customer support for the duration. Flock is also allowing customers to freeze their annual policies during the crisis, in support of businesses who have taken a hit due to the numerous global shutdowns.
“If business is quieter than normal and you’re not flying, you shouldn’t have to pay for insurance that you’re not using,” writes Klinger.
