Smart Dive Travel is a new and innovative Online Travel Agent (OTA) for diving, with a simple mission Make Dive Travel Easy.
The Smart Dive Travel team has many years of experience diving around the world, working as dive instructors in various destinations and managing dive resorts. We came up with the idea based on our own personal experience of the difficulty and time-consuming task of planning and booking a dive vacation, as well as meeting and talking with hundreds of divers and hearing the need for an easier way to book dive travel.
We came up with an idea that seems simple, “Let’s make an ONE STOP SHOP for dive travel”. We all found ourselves with more than 20 tabs open on the computer when we tried to plan our next diving vacation. We wanted to create a platform that will offer all the aspects of dive travel, whether it is a liveaboard, dive resorts, daily dive trips and special expeditions, you should be able to book flights, hotels, car rentals and insurance in the same place.
Our goal is to offer you, the diver, the best experience possible. Therefore, we offer an outstanding 24/7 customer support available in various forms, including WhatsApp, Facebook Messenger as well as the traditional phone and email.. We built our website with the user in mind and created an easy-to-use, user-friendly platform that offers great user experience and allows you to book everything online.
Except saving you time, we want to save you money. We are working directly with a wide selection of diving operators, to offer the best price guarantee. To be able to offer you the biggest selection and lowest prices of flights, car rentals and hotels, we partnered with Booking.com, Rentalcars.com and Skyscanner.com. For dive and travel insurance we partnered with DiveAssure as we found that they offer the most comprehensive insurance that is available worldwide at great rates.
