Intact Insurance launches commercial drone insurance for small and medium-sized businesses

TORONTO, January 18, 2016 – As part of its ongoing commitment to product innovation, Intact Insurance has launched drone insurance for its commercial lines customers.

This Unmanned Air Vehicle (UAV) coverage is a leading insurance product in the market that caters specifically to small and medium-sized businesses that currently use or plan to use drones to complement their business operations.

“The number of businesses using drones is increasing due to improving technology, lower price points, and expanded uses within commercial operations,” said Alain Lessard, Senior Vice-President, Commercial Lines for Intact Insurance. “Broker feedback and survey insights identified a growing customer demand and gap in non-specialty markets for this type of coverage. We are confident this product will help address current and future market demand.”
