What insurance does Wingly hold?
Whilst you will be covered by your own insurance in the unlikely event of any incident or accident occurring, all flights arranged through Wingly are covered by an additional insurance in the event that the existing insurance proves to be insufficient. This covers up to the equivalent of 1 million Euros and protects the pilot in the event of any legal action taken against themselves following an accident.
