Will travel insurance cover me if I’m quarantined during my trip due to Ebola?

Last Updated:

Short Answer
There may be coverage available for travelers who are quarantined due to Ebola.

More Detail
Many policies on the Squaremouth site offer coverage for Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption due to you or your traveling companion being quarantined. If a quarantine affects your trip, Trip Interruption coverage may be available to cover the cost to catch up to your trip once the quarantine has been lifted. Additionally, coverage may also be available through the Trip Cancellation benefit for the cost of canceling your trip due to the quarantine.

Policies that offer this type of coverage will list “Quarantine” as a covered reason under the policy’s Trip Cancellation and Trip Interruption benefit.
