PUBLIC LIABILITY INSURANCE
The practice of scuba diving, snorkeling and freediving requires mandatory third-party liability insurance. During these activities, you are covered if you cause any damage to someone else. This insurance will be requested from all our dive center partners.
INDIVIDUAL DIVE INSURANCE
We recommend that you purchase personal insurance to cover yourself against the risks associated with diving, including medical, research and repatriation expenses, etc.
DAN is specialized in diving insurance. All DAN packages include civil liability coverage + individual insurance against risks related to diving. In many cases, there is no advance payment of expenses in the event of hospitalization. DAN also offers in its Travel Assist package cancelation insurance, valid anywhere in the world, for all trips, even those where diving is not the main objective. The insurance is valid for 1 year.
There is a DAN 7- or 15-day package available directly from dive service providers, which only covers diving accidents with the costs of sea rescue, medical and hyperbaric chamber being covered.
TRAVEL INSURANCEREPATRIATION INSURANCE
The repatriation insurance is available in the event of an incident/accident occurring during your trip. The insurance company organizes with local assistance your transfer to a hospital and/or your repatriation to your country. Medical expenses on site, luggage, accompanying persons, etc, are covered according to the options of your contract.
Dive center partners apply cancellation conditions depending on their products. You may have to cancel a trip for health and/or family reasons, etc. Fees may be applied by dive centers following a cancellation. Once you have purchased travel cancellation insurance, the insurance company will refund you the costs inherent to the cancellation.
Personal insurance related to credit card, home and car insurance may include Repatriation Assistance. Nevertheless, make sure that exclusion clauses in the warranties do not apply to scuba diving. When the trip is purchased with a Gold or Premium Bank Card, a trip cancellation insurance may be part of the card's guarantees.
