Explore the deep blue sea with our comprehensive travel insurance

Can’t resist the lure of the ocean? We hear you, water babies! And what better way to appeal to your aquatic side than by going scuba diving? A fun, fascinating activity with many rewards, scuba diving gives you the chance to see the sea at its versatile best. From sunken shipwrecks to schools of fish that look like something straight out of a fantasy film, there’s plenty to marvel at beneath the surface.

If you’re thinking of taking a scuba diving holiday, for the first time or the fiftieth, you really should ensure you're properly covered. It can be hard thinking about worst-case scenarios, but the fact is, being prepared is a smart move.

Obtaining scuba diving travel insurance from Cover-More UK means you can experience the beautiful briny sea in an extremely exciting way, and with total confidence.

What kind of scuba diving cover do you provide?

We’re happy to provide cover for your scuba diving adventures, but it’s important to know how far you can dive, and who you need to be diving with to ensure our cover is valid.

Our scuba diving travel insurance can only protect you while scuba diving to a maximum depth of 18 metres below sea level.

Unfortunately, we don’t cover solo diving. If you’re an unqualified scuba diver, you must be accompanied by a qualified instructor or divemaster.

Please also note no commercial, professional or technical diving (such as cave or cavern, ice, enriched air, free, tutor or wreck diving) is included in our policies. Be sure to read the relevant policy document to find out what is, and is not covered under your chosen policy. 

Can I get cover for more than one scuba diving trip this year?

Absolutely! After all, the sea is a big place – three-quarters of the earth’s surface, remember? You’ll need to do a lot of diving to explore all the underwater world has to offer.

And that’s where our Annual Multi-trip Insurance comes in. You’ll save yourself time and money – not to mention stress! – by taking out just one policy to cover multiple holidays.

If you have an Annual Multi-Trip travel insurance policy, you can be abroad as much as you like within the year (up to a maximum of 183 days’ worth of travel).

Bear in mind,though, that there’s a limit to the duration of each journey you plan on taking: your options are 45 days (on our Basic and Standard Plans) or 62 days (on our Extra Plan).

Sounds great! What else is covered?

Travel insurance from Cover-More UK gives you overseas medical coverage as well as 24/7 access to our emergency assistance professionals, so whether you need urgent medical care whilst you’re away or you’ve lost your passport, we’ll be on hand to help.

Need to cancel your policy? Don’t worry; with travel insurance from Cover-More UK, you won’t lose out. Whatever your reason for cancelling, our 14-day cooling-off period entitles you to a full refund (provided you’re not making any claims and neither your trip or policy has started).
