Travel Insurance for Scuba Diving

If you plan to venture beneath the surface this year, you'll of course 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 covered to scuba dive up to 30m (not solo) at no extra cost.

Good news for you, your travel insurance cover for scuba divers (down to 30m accompanied by a qualified diver or instructor) is already included in your regular policy. There might be some sports excluded from your chosen travel insurance policy, in which case you must arrange additional cover with our team; to do so you can contact us on and we'll do our best to arrange your extra cover by selecting the appropriate additional cover.

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.
