SCUBA Insurance

SCUBA InsuranceImagine the costs of rescue, resuscitation, medical treatment, air evacuation, decompression chambers and repatriation. Can you afford this?
Will these matters be covered by a normal holiday insurance? — No!

‘Normal’ Holiday Insurance Policies have supplements which you can tick for ‘risky activities’ such as skiing, horse riding, diving etc.
These policies will cover the majority of divers, allowing you to dive on compressed air to depth 20m. (You don’t actually have to pay much more)

Read the small print carefully to check you are covered otherwise it can be costly. Insurance companies will wriggle their way out of paying, any way they can!

Anything involving greater depths, gas mixtures, remoteness needs special policies. Special policies usually require the correct PADI certificates of competency.
