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.
