Ebola Outbreak in Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone — August 1, 2014
The Department of Foreign Affairs, Trade and Development Canada is currently advising against non-essential travel to Guinea, Liberia and Sierra Leone, due to an outbreak of Ebola.
Travellers who submit medical claims resulting from unexpected sickness as a result are covered under Travel Underwriters' insurance medical policies, subject to the terms and conditions of the policy.
Travellers who purchased Travel Underwriters' Trip Cancellation/Trip Interruption coverage may qualify for benefits when a formal travel warning or advisory is issued by the Canadian Government. This advisory must be in place between the time you purchased insurance and the time you're scheduled to depart on your trip. The advisory must still be in place at the time of scheduled departure.
Visit the Government's website for the latest advisory status.
For more detailed information, please refer to your policy wording or contact one of our Licensed Insurance Advisors for the latest advisory status.
In case of medical emergency, we're on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week.
