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.

First class service. Helped me through the process from start to finish. Egle and Francis were very professional and talked me though all my options. Once the policies were set up, the after care after was also first class. Highly recommend. 5 stars all day long.

Sam Carr provided a professional but enthusiastic service and helped make the whole process very straight forward. Goodness knows I have been through enough application forms recently. My insurance product was never going to be easy to find and I had been rejected on a number of other occasions through others ironically due to well managed common health conditions. I identified Drewberry in a last and disappointing trawl on th web to find someone that actually wanted to take on a difficult case like me. Some brokers wouldn't even consider me. When we applied for my first choice product Sam wasn't at all deterred by the long wait for my GP report or the final rejection that came back from the insurer, sadly I have become used to it. Within a day he had lined up the second choice and to my surprise he had hit the nail on the head and introduced me to the correct insurer and terms for my needs whilst nogotiating an excellent premium. I am extremely satisfied with what Sam has achieved for me and I would have no hesitation in recommending either him or Drewberry to friends, family and and business contacts. In the future, Drewberry will be my first point of contact. Many thanks!
