Smart Divers Benefit
FROM DAN mEMBERSHIP

The cost of a dive accident can exceed R500,000 — a cost that isn’t always covered by primary health insurance. But don’t worry, as a DAN member, you have access to the industry’s leading dive accident cover benefits as a DAN member. DAN offers comprehensive plans that provide protection and peace-of-mind in the event of a dive accident for far less than the cost of an unplanned event. DAN’s dive accident cover plans are recognised worldwide providing secondary coverage of up to R900,000 and paying 100% of eligible expenses.
