Our Scuba Diving Insurance policy options

Put simply, we offer three different policy options…

1. Travel Insurance

We provide a single and annual multi-trip Sports Travel Insurance policy that provides cover for scuba diving. It includes cover for emergency medical and repatriation costs, trip cancellation and curtailment, plus more.

2. Travel Insurance Bolt-On

If you have an existing travel insurance policy in place with another provider, such as your bank, but it does not include cover for scuba diving, we can provide a bolt-on style of protection for your trip.

3. Sports Accident Insurance

Our Sports Accident Insurance is designed to protect individuals scuba diving off the coast of the UK. The policy provides a range of benefits including personal liability and income protection.
