What are the advantages of working with an aviation insurance broker?
You can choose from a wide range of policy and coverage options.
One call to an aviation broker gives you a choice of coverage and pricing options offered by numerous insurance companies. In fact, many of today’s policies offer more enhancements and features than just a few years ago, including coverage for handheld avionics, automatic increase in insured value, trip interruption,and more. Your broker can help you select the features that are right for your insurance needs.
Shopping around for the best insurance value is faster and easier because your broker does it for you.
While the insurance agency staff enjoys spending time working on aviation insurance, you probably have better things to do with your time. With a single phone call to an aviation broker, you can obtain multiple quotes on insurance coverage via automated quotation systems. The AOPA Insurance Agency helped pioneer automated quotation technologies to reduce the time, trouble, and headaches once associated with aviation insurance shopping. Now, nearly every major underwriter is using at least some form of automated underwriting and rating, and many have made significant investments in sophisticated Web-based systems.
A broker puts your interests first.
All insurance policies aren’t created equal. Some policies may include restrictions and exclusions that you’ll want to avoid, and they aren’t always obvious. Without the help of an experienced aviation broker working on your behalf, these can be difficult to identify and understand. For example, some policies restrict your coverage for ground injuries with “per person” limits. Others include “family sub-limits” that may limit coverage for injuries to members of your family even further, drastically reducing your protection. Some insurers may even impose specific restrictions on pilots who are approaching retirement age. So ask questions. Your broker has the answers you need to make informed insurance choices.
