Dive Master Insurance

Dive Master Insurance policies now include coverage for some coronavirus related risks, including (depending on country of residence):

  • You test positive for COVID-19 and have to cancel your holiday.
  • You test positive for COVID-19 and require hospital treatment whilst on holiday.
  • You test positive for COVID-19 and need to cut short your holiday or require repatriation.
They don't cover if a relative or friend falls ill with COVID-19 and you want to cancel your holiday. Or if your government changes its advice about travelling to the country because of the pandemic. In this case your tour operator should provide a refund. Find out more.

Divemaster Insurance

Dive Master Insurance is different from most insurers in that they let you buy stand-alone diving insurance to accompany your existing travel insurance. You can buy diving cover with no depth limits. (Dives over 80 m should be supported, and deeper than 130 m must be agreed with the underwriters.) They also offer dive equipment insurance - including for camera flooding, technical diving and dive professional insurance.
