Does the app called Verifly - Drone Insurance have a good reputation? I am a certificated drone photographer who has been approached to take aerial photo/video of a well-known tourist location in the US. The organization that controls the tourist location will approve my flight if I have appropriate insurance coverage. I only need the insurance coverage specific to this shoot for one day. I have other insurance for normal ops.
We touched on some of this stuff in an article a few weeks ago. As mentioned in that article, giving advice on insurance is a risky subject so I've reached out to a professional for a few pointers.

You should definitely have liability insurance for your drone photography operation. If you are only doing a few flights a year and don't need an Additional Insured Endorsement, Verifly offers a good pay per flight option. But if you are doing approximately fifty (50) flights or more per year, you'll need an Additional Insured Endorsement, OR need the reliability of knowing your covered for FAA approved locations; Verifly might not be the best option (Verifly has geographic areas where coverage isn't available). That being said, there are affordable options available.
I recently did a policy with $1,000,000 general liability limit for combined land and aerial operation, plus $5,000 equipment coverage for $611 per year.
