Can you get scuba diving insurance?
You can usually get life insurance for scuba diving at standard rates, so long as the activity you’re taking part in isn’t too dangerous or extreme.
However, it’s vitally important to tell your life insurance provider that you take part in scuba diving as a hobby, otherwise you may find you’re not covered should the worst happen.
This applies to all hazardous sports so, when in doubt, consult your provider or have a chat with one of the advisors we work with.
How much does it cost?
Some of the factors that may be taken into account for life insurance would be the number of dives you do each year, and whether you dive to depths of more than 40 metres.
Some of the main factors that may affect your premium include:
- Whether you have recognised diving qualifications.
- How deep your dives are.
- The type of diving you take part in such as:
- Recreational/holiday diving
- Wreck diving
- Deep sea diving
- Free diving
- Pothole diving
- Diving instructor
- Cave diving
If you undertake more hazardous activities such as wreck diving, mixed gas diving or cave diving then you may be hit with restrictions and exclusions on your policy, or more likely, a hefty premium loading.
Life insurance premiums for divers may vary from one insurance provider to the next.
The good news is that the life insurance advisors we work with are whole-of-market, which means they have access to almost all insurance providers rather than just a select few. They will search the market and find out which life insurance provider will offer you the best cover, with the lowest premiums.
