IMPORTANT POINTS TO REMEMBER
DAN must be contacted in the event of a medical emergency requiring evacuation to access the TravelAssist benefits and in the event of any diving injury. You must advise DAN if you are travelling outside your country of residence for longer than 90 days. International cover is limited to 90 days from the date of departure. You must contact DAN if you require an extension of this cover.
** DAN coverage is secondary coverage. Wherever possible DAN will arrange for expenses to be covered firstly by any other Travel or Medical insurance you may have.
Lost/damaged diving gear is only covered if it was lost or damaged as a result of a claimable accident or evacuation.
To ensure cover, DAN must be contacted in the event of any covered emergency or loss.
As with any insurance, there are specific conditions
WHAT IS NOT COVERED
In order to meet the requirements of Insurance Law and the Medical Schemes Act, DAN cover has to comply with the purposes of its mission. Certain medical conditions would also significantly increase the cost of cover to our members and have therefore been excluded in the interest of the vast majority of our members. Below is a list of some of the main exclusions. For a full list of exclusions, please refer to the full DAN Membership wording.
Hazardous pursuits, sports or activities which dramatically increase the possibility of injury are excluded for example:
• Riding Motorcycles • Bungee jumping • Abseiling White water rafting • Hiking without a recognized guide or on an unmarked trail • Mountaineering with ropes • Diving to a depth outside your qualification and training, or beyond the specified limit of your cover (max 40 meters for Standard and Plus members; 100 meters for Master members – DAN Must be contacted for all dives deeper than 100 meters).
Pre-existing medical conditions are excluded from cover. Specifically:
• cardiac, cardiovascular (heart attack), vascular (poor circulation) or cerebro-vascular (stroke) diseases are not covered. They represent contraindications to diving. Note that myocardial infarction and stroke are specifically excluded from this cover
IMPORTANT: Search and Recovery is not covered as part of your DAN Membership.
IMPORTANT: Working on a Cruise Ship or boat traveling from one country to another is not covered as part of your DAN Membership.
