DAN Membership Benefits – Medical Cover and Services

As part of your DAN Membership, you receive the following medical cover, services and benefits

Help in Diving Emergencies Dial toll-free 0800 020 111 within South Africa or International +27 82 810 6010 worldwide (if necessary call collect). DAN can not respond to sms's, members need to phone.

DAN is a vital organisation in the dive community, devoted to helping injured divers. Our medical emergency hotline is your lifeline to help in the event of a diving-related injury. Without your support of DAN, emergency medical support for divers would not exist.

DAN TravelAssist Benefits

As a DAN Member you are enrolled automatically in the DAN TravelAssist emergency medical program. DAN TravelAssist is your access to evacuation in a medical emergency when you travel more than 100 km from home, or when you are on a dive trip. Members on the Plus and Master Membership are also covered for emergency medical expenses for both diving and non diving emergencies when travelling outside their country of permanent (registered) residence for a maximum period of 90 days. Standard Members are only covered for Diving Injuries.

DAN Dive Accident Cover

As a DAN Member, you can select the most comprehensive dive accident cover available - and the best value. This cover protects you against the potentially astronomical medical bills incurred if you have a diving-related injury. The cover is linked to the level of membership (see section on DAN Membership). There are three levels of membership.


DAN Family Support

In keeping with DAN's mission for providing assistance to injured divers, DAN introduced the DAN Family Support. DAN Family Support provides an immediate sum of money pay-out to the nominated next of kin on receipt of an officially endorsed Death Certificate of a dive-related death of an active DAN member.*Please read terms and conditions carefully*

DAN'S Medical Information Line

+27 (0) 82 810 6010 or 0800 020 111

When you have questions about your health and how it might affect your diving, you can call DAN's Dive Safety and Medical Information Line. Whether it's to find a diving doctor in your immediate area, or to find out about diving after surgery, the Medical Information Line is there to serve you.

DAN coverage is secondary coverage

DAN reserves the right to claim from any other Travel or Medical insurance you may have. The DAN Hotline must be contacted at the time of the emergency to activate these benefits.

Dive Gear

Loss or Theft of Dive Gear is only covered if it is as a direct result of an emergency medical evacuation.
