For Diving Emergencies
For Non-Diving Emergencies
In the event of a non-diving emergency, the Member should contact DAN TravelAssist. This can be done by placing a collect call through the international operator or by dialling direct. The DAN TravelAssist operator will take relevant details and will arrange for a physician to be consulted. Following medical advice, TravelAssist will determine the best course of action and make any necessary arrangements.BACK
