First Impression

In a hurry and looking for the gist of things? Here is our review in short. Keep reading for the entire version.

DiveAssure is a pure scuba diving insurance provider that offers great coverage with their DiveSafe and Dive & Travel plans. All types of diving accidents are covered, as well as the full cost of any hyperbaric oxygen chamber treatments.

There is no depth limit and every type of diving is covered. From recreational to technical and cave diving, with air or mixed gases.

The same holds for solo and ice-diving.

Our favorite part about the DiveAssure offering is the option to expand the DiveSafe plan to include travel insurance that covers lost dive equipment, missed diving days due to flight delays, and even liveaboard coverage.

The Dive & Travel plans are even better because they include travel insurance for up to unlimited trips per year, including lost baggage and damaged scuba gear coverage. What’s not to like about that?

The DiveSafe plans start at around 69€ per year while the Dive & Travel basic plan is slightly more expensive. If you only dive in your home country, the basic plan is more than enough.

However, if you are a frequent traveler, we recommend at least the Dive & Travel package, as it’s just too good to miss out on that equipment coverage.

The family option comes at a 10% discount on all dive plans and is really worth it if you are a family of avid divers. After all, the more people join on a vacation, the higher the chance that something may go unplanned.

DiveAssure plans
DiveAssure offers several insurance options.

A drawback of the DiveAssure insurance plans is that diving in the US is not covered for US citizens. If you are a US citizen wanting to cave dive in Florida, you will have to look elsewhere in that case.

It must also be said that, in comparison to aquaMed, travel insurance is not included in the basic plan. However, the DiveAssure travel insurance is much more extensive than the former.

DiveAssure does not impose any limits on diving depths and the types of diving you do.

Mixed gases, rebreathers, solo, and cave diving all fall under the policy without any additional cost.

The coolest part about the Dive & Travel options is the liveaboard coverage which will reimburse you for any missed diving days on a boat in the case of delayed flights.

If you travel for a long time to get to your destinations, things can happen. Quite a few people have missed their liveaboard when their flights were delayed, their luggage didn’t arrive or something else went wrong.

DiveAssure Pros

  • Great coverage
  • Extensive upgrade options
  • Excellent customer service
  • Diving liability insurance included
  • Short-term options available
  • Family insurance at 10% discount
  • Tech, cave & solo-diving included
  • Equipment damages from accidents covered

DiveAssure Cons

  • Does not cover US citizens when diving in the US
  • Travel insurance only included in higher-tier plans
  • Not the cheapest option

Verdict: A-

If you are willing to spend some extra money on your diving insurance, DiveAssure is the way to go. They might be more expensive, but the added benefits for scuba divers are undoubtedly worth it.

A good part about this insurance is also that it is available to anyone and not restricted to Europe or the USA.

  1. Thanks for the review! I just finished my Open Water course and will be going to the Maldives in two weeks. Do you think the “Dive&Travel Plus” plan is worth the additional cost over the “Dive&Travel” for that?
    Thanks for your help.

    1. Hi Chris,
      thanks for your comment!
      In general, the normal Dive & Travel offers great coverage and the Plus plan is meant for those who like to travel a lot and to exotic diving destinations.

      In your case, I believe the “Dive & Tavel” plan should be enough, assuming you stay at a resort. Do you have your own scuba gear that you’re traveling with? In that case, the Plus plan covers a higher value. Otherwise, if you are going on a liveaboard diving trip or have a lot of connecting flights, then I think the “missed flights” coverage in the Plus plan is better.

      Hope this helps and if you have any other questions, let me know!
