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 (not solo) 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 bungee jumping, Dragon Boat racing and Mountain Biking. 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.

Holiday Extras provides the best travel insurance

There are two types of policies and four levels of cover to choose from. We try to make finding the best travel insurance policy for scuba diving simple and affordable, so whether you purchase a single trip or a annual travel insurance policy, you are entitled to dive up to 30m (not solo) with full cover across the UK, Europe and worldwide. All of our levels of cover provide financial protection for medical and cancellations costs, lost luggage cover and a 24/7 emergency helpline:

  • Bronze cover offers up to £500 of insurance for your baggage and £1,000 of cancellation cover per person. This cover also includes up to £5000 in personal accident cover and up to £5 million in emergency medical and associated expenses.

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.
