Reminder – PADI-Endorsed Insurance Renewals Are Due (Individual Members UK+Ireland)

PADILogo_sqRecent changes in the dive insurance industry have left many dive professionals facing rising premiums and lower coverage – and desperately in need of a stable insurance carrier. Staying current on your professional liability insurance can be critical to your dive career. Your PADI-endorsed Professional Liability Insurance coverage will lapse if you don’t renew by 30 June 2014, so don’t wait – a gap in coverage can put your business and livelihood at risk.

If you have coverage from other sources, be sure to carefully compare your existing program to the PADI-endorsed Professional Liability Insurance. When you compare the coverage, the service – and especially for 2014-15, the PRICE – you will see that there has never been a better time to choose PADI-endorsed Professional Liability Insurance.

Sometimes you can have it all.
