Terrorism, Ebola - no more please

Jump to last reply

11 years ago we had our trip to China cancelled by the tour company because of Sars. We went 6 months later and had a fabulous time. Now I have a trip to Kenya planned for November. Non refundable deposit already paid. I got over the terrorism attack fears and was excited about the Kenya game drive trip. Now it's Ebola. I know it's not in Kenya but will it come? Who knows? My family does not want me to go. And really, who wants to bring back Ebola to Thanksgiving dinner (I'm doing the cooking)

Final deposit is due in September. To pay or not to pay? The travel insurance at this time has no provisions for Ebola fear cancellation unless the tour company cancels. I would be out $3500 if I chickened out. And yes, I've looked at a map and know Ebola is on the other side of the continent, but darn that evening news. It's scaring the heck out of me.

Anyone else out there having these second thoughts. Tell me I'm not alone............
