Do You Have Any Questions?

Scuba Diving insurance

Included in all PADI scuba courses

When you book ANY scuba diving course with Thailand Divers, you can rest assured that you are fully insured for all scuba diving activities while you are with us. We register all of our students with DiveAssist.org, a leading provider of scuba diving insurance.

This means that you will receive a personal scuba diving insurance policy sent to your email address before the scuba diving course. We provide this insurance to all of our students because we want to make sure that you are safe and protected while you are learning to scuba dive. We also want to give you peace of mind so that you can focus on enjoying your scuba diving course.

Look After Yourself

We strongly recommend investing in your own personal scuba coverage, especially while diving in a foreign country. Unexpected situations can arise, and having comprehensive insurance ensures you’re protected against any medical expenses or dive-related incidents.

If you don’t currently have personal scuba insurance, don’t worry!

DAN World has an affordable way to get temporary coverage for the duration of your diving activities here in Thailand if you don’t require all-year-round cover.

Important to everyone

Flying After Scuba Diving

An important thing to take into account when you’re planning your dive holiday is your flight dates and times, which will determine your diving schedule. When you scuba dive, you get nitrogen build-up in your body which is normal, and you need to make sure you expel it to a healthy amount before going up to altitude.

Rule 1. You need 18 hours before you go to altitude Different organizations will say different things when it comes to the hours required on land before going to altitude, but PADI currently states that you need
12 hours before you fly if you have done dive and 18 hours if you’re doing multiple dives over multiple days. This means that if you’ve been diving for a week and you’re flying out at 1PM, you can dive up to 5PM the day before safely. A lot of people like giving themselves 24 hours to be on cautious side, and because they’d like to just spend some time relaxing on the beach on their last day of holiday, and you are of course welcome to give yourself as many hours as you want. But if you’re a dive freak, 18 hours is what you need, even if you’re diving a lot from a liveaboard. As always, though, make sure to practice conservative dive practices and avoid pushing your no-decompression limits when you dive.

Rule 2. Altitude doesn’t just mean flying. If you dive, and then are planning on driving up the mountains to get to your next destination, this still counts as altitude. Anything above 300 meters/1000 feet counts as altitude because the atmospheric pressure drops, so keep this in mind when you’re planning your post-diving travels.
