Does income protection cover diving?

I’m looking to get Income Protection insurance as i think it’s a great way to protect my earnings if I’m unable to work.

I frequently go on diving holidays with friends and wondered if i could get cover to include this?

What kind of diving you do might make a difference to your policy options

Income Protection covers a wide range of hazardous pursuits and different insurers will have a different approach when it comes to what they are willing to cover. Obtaining cover for diving will depend on several factors such as the depth you dive to and whether or not any wreck or quarry dives are included.

Generally speaking, if the dives are up to a depth of 30 metres most insurers will provide income protection cover. However, any diving to deeper than 30 metres often attracts a diving exclusion. Any participation in wreck and/or quarry dives immediately attracts a diving exclusion with most insurers.

However, there are specialist insurers who will still cover diving and therefore it is best to speak to an adviser who can tailor a plan for your specific circumstances, taking into consideration the extent of your participation in any diving related activities and then based on that information can advise you of any potential changes to premium or terms.

I was having trouble finding a suitable income protection policy online and was unclear about what I should be looking for, so I contacted Drewberry. The process was very quick and straightforward. They called me and explained how this type of insurance works, and then went through series of questions about my circumstances to try and find the right cover for me. They came back to me the next day with several suitable options and emailed all the relevant information clearly laid out. Michael Barrow, the advisor I spoke to, was happy to explain things in detail and answer any questions I had. I would definitely recommend Drewberry as they took all the hassle out of a confusing search.
