Scuba diving travel insurance

If you’re planning on swimming with the fishes (or corals or sea turtles) during your trip, you’ll want to know that you’re covered on your travel insurance. All of our policies include cover for over 50 activities and sports, including scuba diving, so you can rest assured knowing you're covered - even if you fancy doing a couple of bungee jumps between dives!

What's covered with scuba diving travel insurance?

A standard travel insurance policy from InsureandGo covers you to scuba dive for up to 14 days, provided you're a qualified diver and will be diving no deeper than 30 metres.

If this is your first time diving or you'd like to dive deeper than 30 metres, you'll need to add our hazardous activities extension to your policy. This will also cover you for shark cage diving, sky diving and even ostrich racing! (Bet you didn't even know that was a thing!)

For a full list of activities included in the hazardous activities policy upgrade, see our policy documents.

What should I be aware of when scuba diving abroad?

We can only provide cover for beginner scuba divers under the direct supervision of a qualified instructor. The qualifications we recognise and the ones you should look out for include a British Sub Aqua Club (BSAC) certificate or equivalent qualification of proficiency. These are also the qualifications we require for you to go scuba diving unsupervised.

For your own safety and to be covered by our scuba insurance, you must be diving with proper equipment and not contrary to BSAC codes of good practice. We will also not be able to cover you if you're diving for hire or a reward, and you must never dive or fly within 24 hours of one another.

Can you get insured?

 We have no upper age limit on any of our policies to make sure everyone can get the most out of their holiday. We also consider all medical conditions, but you must let us know if you're suffering from any medical issues, not limited to those that may impair your fitness to dive.

We can also cover your kids for free - so more scuba diving fun for the whole family!

For full details about what's covered with your scuba diving insurance, be sure to check the terms and conditions in our policy documents or get in touch.

We can cover your kids for free!

If you’re going away with your children, we can cover them on your policy at no extra charge, whether you buy an annual policy or single trip cover.
