    **Benefactor Travel strongly recommends that each traveler take out a fully comprehensive travel insurance policy. Many companies offer travel insurance. Three we recommend are,

    Travel Guard - 1.800.826.5248. A summary of the Travel Guard cancellation and medical insurance found here.
    AXA Travel Insurance - 1.855.327.1441. A summary of their insurance can be found here.
    Cavalry Elite cancellation insurance -1.415.481.0720. A summary of the Cavalry Elite cancellation and medical insurance found 

    The price of travel protection is determined by factors such as your province/state of residence, region of travel, trip price and age. Please reach out to your travel insurance company of choice for an exact quote. We recommend that your policy includes coverage for pre-existing conditions.  In our experience, this has been an important benefit. You may also wish to check with your credit card company, as some card companies offer travel insurance, although it can be very limited.
