Short Answer

Scuba diving may be covered by travel insurance, however, coverage is dependent on each specific policy.

More Detail

Some policies cover scuba diving outright. Others consider scuba diving to be too dangerous, and exclude it from coverage. Using Squaremouth’s activity selection matrix, you can denote which activities you plan to participate in during your trip to only search for the policies that can provide Sports & Activities coverage for the activities you select.

As each policy is different, we recommend reading through the description of coverage before purchasing the policy to ensure it offers the coverage you are interested in, including scuba diving.

This information can vary based on the travel insurance policy. Please review the policy certificate to verify coverage.
