With all travel purchases, we strongly suggest to take out travel insurance to cover you for a number of uncertainties including:
- Cancellation of travel (due to accidents, illness, etc.)
- Illness during travel
- Lost baggage
- Legal Liability
Unfortunately, there is not one insurance policy that covers all contingencies.
DIVERSION DIVE TRAVEL offers services to clients all over the world. Insurances have a much narrower reach and can only be issued for people originating from and travelling to certain regions.
Depending on your country of origin and your travel destination, your age, your physical well-being, there are different insurances with different cover, premiums, etc.

Australian residents can get a quote through us from SURESAVE. Now also available to Australian residents who hold a 457 Visa, and New Zealand passport holders.

You should make sure that your insurance policy does cover cost for evacuation and treatment of diving accidents. Experience has shown that the insurance provided through a Divers Alert Network (DAN) membership is very unbureaucratic and efficient in handling cases of dive accidents.
The annual membership provides members with Diver Evacuation cover for a whole year, regardless of where in the world you dive. For more details on membership and insurance options, please contact the DAN office which corresponds to your home: A very comprehensive Diving Accident AND Travel Insurance is available for US residents. Diveassure Diamond Plan offers annual insurance frequent divers based in the USA.
