Travel Insurance including Scuba Diving

If you plan to venture beneath the surface this year, you'll be eager to don a snorkel and fins but, be sure to book Holiday Extras' holiday insurance before you do. Not only will you benefit from our wide range of policy protection levels but you are also fully covered to scuba dive up to 30m at no extra cost.

Insurance cover for scuba divers is already included in your regular policy alongside a further 100+ sports. These include high adrenaline sports like water-skiing, safari trekking and zip-lining. There might be some sports excluded from your chosen holiday insurance policy, in which case you must arrange additional cover with our team. To do so you can contact us on our free helpline and we'll do our best to arrange your extra cover.

Important stuff to remember: In order to be fully covered for your dive, you must not dive unaccompanied unless you hold a certificate to do so.

Tips for safe scuba diving

Drink and dive - No we don't mean alcohol but good old-fashioned H20. It's very important to stay hydrated whilst scuba diving so hold off the alcohol until you're finished diving.

Prepare for the diving day - Arrive early to ensure there's somewhere to store your gear throughout the day and be sure to apply sun cream regularly. It might also be a good idea to take some seasickness tablets before you set off.

Monitor your air supply - We cannot stress this one enough! By reducing your speed and avoiding rapid body movement, you'll find your air consumption becomes more efficient. We'd recommend remaining calm and concentrating on slow breathing.
