DAN breaks ground with a new way to protect traveling divers
Divers Alert Network® (DAN®) today released details of the DAN Group Travel Insurance Program, which provides another level of coverage for scuba divers and travelers. Developed in consultation with travel providers, wholesalers, retailers and other dive-travel professionals, the DAN Group Travel Insurance Program is designed to be straightforward, comprehensive and cost-effective.
DAN Group Travel Insurance provides coverage that protects group travelers against unexpected events such as trip cancellation, trip interruption, baggage delays and emergency medical situations. It is the only program currently available that can be purchased instantly online by travel professionals.
According to William Ziefle, president and CEO of DAN Holdings, the new program is the latest addition to DAN’s growing list of safety products and services. “Travel is a key component of the scuba diving industry. Group travel represents a significant portion of overall dive travel, and we’re excited to introduce this program designed specifically for groups and tour operators. Not only are we adding additional levels of coverage, but we’re also providing a way for companies to improve their bottom line.”
DAN has offered individual trip cancellation and interruption coverage for many years, but that program was designed for individual travelers. This new program provides key coverage for groups of 10 or more travelers. Dive retailers, travel agents and other sellers of travel are eligible to use the DAN Group Travel Insurance Program. The competitively priced option provides assurance and enhances revenue opportunities in the ever-changing dive-travel marketplace.
Having group travel insurance provides an additional layer of protection and coverage for companies booking dive-travel packages. Travelers with DAN dive accident insurance, where coverage is limited to dive accidents, enjoy additional trip cancellation, interruption, delay and medical coverage benefits unrelated to dive accidents with DAN Group Travel Insurance. Like other DAN products, the DAN Group Travel Insurance Program is simple to use, delivers a wide range of benefits and carries the DAN name, which is recognized throughout the international scuba diving community. Each group plan covers trip interruption or cancellations, baggage delays and emergency medical situations.
