Water makes up 71 per cent of the Earth’s surface and a great way to discover what lies beneath, and experience a whole new world, is to go diving.
While scuba diving you can encounter serene scenes of coral reefs, schools of colourful fish and other marine life, plus sunken ships and even art installations. And there are some mesmerising places you can visit to explore beneath the crystal clear waters, such as the Great Barrier Reef in Australia, the Great Blue Hole in Belize and the Red Sea.
Diving is great for individuals or families looking for an exciting underwater excursion as children and adults of most ages can participate and having the best travel insurance policy will make your trip flow much easier. With a Spectrum Travel Insurance policy you’ll be covered automatically to dive to a depth of up to 30 metres, whether you are a PADI (or equivalent) qualified diver, or if you are an inexperienced diver who is diving with a qualified instructor and are not alone.
Our policies cover many aspects that you’d expect to find within a travel insurance policy such as medical expenses, cancellation and baggage. But at Spectrum we also include lots of added benefits such as a 24/7 emergency helpline and automatic cover for over 100 sports. For example, if you don’t fancy scuba diving, we cover a multitude of other water based activities including snorkelling and surfing.
With our policies you can dive to a depth of 30 metres but if you plan to go further than this below the waves then you’ll need to call the Spectrum team on 0800 840 7227 to discuss your specific plans as we may be able to arrange specialised cover to match your requirements.
