Over 70% of the world’s surface is covered by the ocean; an underwater world with amazing ecosystems, beautiful wildlife and secrets just waiting to be explored. Scuba Diving is a fantastic way to discover everything the world has to offer, however, divers need to ensure they have specialist travel insurance in place to protect them, their trip and their equipment against a holiday disaster.

Nearly three-quarters of our planet is covered by ocean, these waters are inhabited by exotic creatures of all shapes and sizes, coral every colour of the rainbow and an underwater world, just ready to explore. Imagine drifting miles beneath the surface, with nothing but your own thoughts and the beauty of the ocean to admire.

At Holidaysafe we understand that travelling the world in search of visions like these is a passionate hobby for many, and that is why we have created a specialist travel insurance policy for Scuba Diving enthusiasts.

Scuba Diving can be considered a dangerous hobby, however at Holidaysafe we believe that if you are properly trained the risk can be minimal, but just remember, holiday mishaps can occur at any time, even before you have set foot in the ocean.
