Simple and flexible travel insurance to keep you safe on your next dive trip. Buy at home or while traveling, and claim online from anywhere in the world.
Calm waters, crystal clear visibility and a bulletproof dive plan might make for the perfect underwater adventure, but accidents can happen. Whether you're learning or you’ve done hundreds of dives, World Nomads travel insurance can help take the pressure off you and your family if the unexpected sinks your next dive trip.
As passionate divers ourselves, we’ve designed our plans to cover dives from the Great Blue Hole to The Yongala, and we can offer cover for:
Keep in mind that all plans are different and may require an additional premium when going scuba diving to specific depths depending on the plan chosen and your Country of Residence. Terms, conditions, limits, and exclusions apply. Read the policy wording carefully to choose the right plan and/or adventure sport option for your trip.
We offer two plans – Standard and Explorer – each of which offers different levels of coverage. It is up to you to choose what plan has the right level of coverage to meet your travel needs and that matches your specific scuba diving plans.
For more information on what you may be covered for, check out our article on specific coverage when scuba diving. Make sure you add in your country of residence for accurate information.
We know that scuba diving equipment such as scuba tanks, fins BCD and regulator, underwater film and photography equipment can be expensive, so we can offer cover for high-value items.
We also offer cover for your baggage in general so if your baggage or scuba diving gear is delayed, lost and/or damaged, you may be able to claim for a replacement, reimbursement or delay up to a per item and total maximum limit. Terms and conditions apply so be sure to check the policy wording and contact us if you have any questions.
Your coverage will vary according to your Country of Residence and whether you choose a Standard or an Explorer Plan. Read your policy wording for details on maximum benefit limits, exclusions, and the terms and conditions of your coverage.
If your gear is delayed, lost or damaged, you must report the incident as soon as possible to a responsible officer for the carrier. Make sure you get a Property Irregularity Report, or a similar official report, in writing and make a claim directly with the carrier before making a claim.
Your health and safety are a priority when you’re exploring the ocean, which is why our plans cover emergency medical expenses should you become sick, get into an accident or get hurt whilst diving or snorkelling.
You might be on a reef far from medical assistance on your dive, and our policies include coverage if you need to be evacuated to a medical facility.
Having an emergency in a foreign country can be overwhelming but buying a World Nomads policy means you’ll have access to our 24/7 Emergency Assistance team. Our Emergency Assistance team can facilitate a range of services in whatever part of the world you’re traveling, can speak multiple languages and they’re available 365 days a year.
While we can offer coverage for a lot of scuba diving events, there are also things we just won’t cover. These include, but are not limited to:
This is only a summary of cover and does not include the full terms, conditions, limitations and exclusions of the policy. You should read your policy wording in full, so you understand what is and isn’t covered. That way there won’t be any surprises if you need to use it. If you have any questions, please get in touch.
