    Post What's the meaning of "get quoted"?

    Example.
    Colin: It's not difficult, it just could be expensive. The price of travel medical insurance depends on a number of factors; one being your age, one being your medical condition, another being how many medications you take. So depending on those factors, there'll be a different price that you get quoted plus you can buy medical insurance for a three-day trip, a five-day trip, or even a whole year's worth. It's up to you, what trip you're going on, and how much you can afford.

    Question
    What's the meaning of "get quoted"?

    Is it a price which I have to pay for medical insurance?

    Yes, it is the amount that you would be asked to pay for the type of insurance cover that you require.

    So depending on those factors, there'll be a different price that you get quoted plus you can buy medical insurance

    If you ring up, or enquire on the Net about say, car insurance, different companies will give you a figure, which is the amount of the premium they would charge to insure your particular car, with you as the nominated driver, for a year. Each company is quoting you a premium - you were given various quotes.

    'quote' means to give someone the estimated cost of a job so much of the sentence is redundant:
    '...factors, there'll be a different price that you get quoted plus you can buy...'
    '...factors, quotes will vary, plus you can buy...
