As divers venture out this summer to explore the underwater world, their excitement may be tempered by concerns about how COVID-19 could affect their travel plans. But DAN has the coverage its members need to travel boldly and confidently.
About DAN: The world’s most recognized and respected dive safety organization, Divers Alert Network (DAN), has remained committed to the health and well-being of divers for more than 40 years. The organization’s research, medical services, and global-response programs create an extensive network that supports divers with vital services such as injury prevention, educational programs, and lifesaving evacuations. Every year, hundreds of thousands of divers around the world look to DAN as their dive safety organization. Join the DAN community or learn more at DAN.org.
In February of this year DAN launched Enhanced Membership, which includes a higher benefit limit for medical transportation (up to $500,000), a continuing subscription to the print edition of Alert Diver magazine, and expanded travel assistance benefits, including search and rescue coverage and global security evacuation coverage.
Now, Enhanced Membership also includes severe infectious disease and quarantine coverage.
If you’ve already upgraded to Enhanced Membership, the severe infectious disease and quarantine coverage is included automatically. With this coverage, members are eligible to receive the following benefits (see DAN membership handbook and policy for complete terms, conditions, and limitations):
Daily Quarantine Benefit: If your trip is delayed 48 hours or more because you are in quarantine, DAN will pay (up to the benefit limit) a per-day quarantine benefit for each day you remain in quarantine.
This includes expenses incurred as a direct result of you being in quarantine, such as unused, non-refundable travel arrangements or accommodations, reasonable additional expenses (e.g., meals and phone calls) and economy transportation so you can rejoin the covered trip or return home.
Severe Infectious Disease Evacuation Benefit: If a severe infectious disease outbreak occurs while on a covered trip, and the outbreak occurs within a 15-mile radius of your location, DAN will pay (up to the benefit limit) the cost of transportation to evacuate you from your location to the nearest place of safety.
Once the outbreak passes, this benefit will also pay (up to the benefit limit) for transportation and related costs so you can rejoin the covered trip or return home.
All transportation arrangements must be by the most direct and economical conveyance and route possible. DAN TravelAssist must make all arrangements and must authorize all expenses in advance.
Severe Infectious Disease Testing Benefit: If while you are on a trip a severe infectious disease outbreak occurs and testing is required, this benefit will pay (up to the benefit limit) for up to three severe infectious disease tests per covered trip. This benefit covers both antigen and PCR tests.
DAN is committed to providing the most up-to-date and relevant coverage and benefits for divers and travelers. Join, renew, or upgrade to Enhanced Membership today!
