Diving Insurance: A Choice or A Must?
Why spend money on dive insurance? “It will never happen to me.” So have said not tens, not hundreds, but thousands of people who have been assisted by DAN Europe each year. These are the same people who now appreciate the importance of being insured by a provider who cares, is reliable, and what’s more, is specifically created by professionals, with a network of experts in the field ready to assist you. Some people may choose to become insured because it is mandatory by local law, or required by their teaching organization. Though even if this is not the case for you, is insurance still a must? Are the benefits of your insurance only tangible after a claim?
It goes without saying that any incident, whether great or small, implies financial consequences. On top of the emotional distress caused by a medical emergency, there is the hassle of dealing with what comes next… making sure your insurance provider is immediately there for you. Having the guarantee of financial assistance is comforting, but what is more comforting is having the reassurance that someone will be there to take care of you throughout the whole ordeal. You’ve probably heard someone say that buying insurance is like buying “peace of mind”. It’s a “just-in-case” means of support that makes you feel more secure in those unpredictable circumstances. However the fine print of buying insurance goes beyond just peace of mind and the guarantee of payment of claims. The service one chooses is made up of two components, namely pre-loss and post-loss.
Dive Insurance Plans
Designed Specifically for Peace of Mind
The Divers Alert Network (DAN Europe) assists and protect divers, and conduct scientific research to make diving a safer, more accessible, and sustainable activity for all.
In life there is risk in everything you do. Think about this: insurance wouldn’t exists if accidents never happened. While scuba diving has its risk factors, with the proper instruction and precaution these risks can be prevented.
So… are you still sure that insurance is a choice and not a must for divers?
