Scuba Diving Travel Insurance for the Over-60s
8 June 2016
it can be difficult when you are over 60 to get SCUBA diving travel insurance. We've found two travel insurance companies that offer insurance specially for divers and don't have a cut-off point at 60 years old. Columbus Direct (to 85 years old) and Divemaster Insurance (no age limits). Which you choose depends on your requirements. Cheap and cheerful? Choose Columbus direct (discount codes below). Have a lot of kit and valuables to insure, or want to add diving cover to your existing insurance? Dive Master Insurance will suit you better.
New: We have discount codes to use at Columbus Direct - for 5% off an annual policy use code TAGAM5 and for 2% off a single trip use code TAGST2.
We believe the details we've given here to be accurate, but please always read the policy details at the insurers' web sites to confirm. Details may be different depending on your country of residence.
