What Would You Do if a Loved One Died Away From Home?

bigstock-A-senior-adult-couple-sitting--14032157In our increasingly mobile society, we are traveling for work, pleasure, education, medical treatment, or to visit family.  Perhaps you have heard of a tragic tale of a loved one or acquaintance dying away from home. What would you do?

Amid the emotional whirlwind, there are the vigorous legalities involved in repatriating the body.  When a person dies away from home, the international consulate is involved along with the Canadian consulate.  Additionally there are Public Health requirements and specific embalming and merchandise requirements to bring the body across an international border.  There will also be fees for the way bill to bring the deceased home.  These costs can range from $4,000.00 to more than $12,000.00, depending on the country in which the death occurred.

Fortunately there is a solution.  The Travel Assurance Plan is excellent coverage for all costs, if a loved one died 60 miles or 100 kilometers or more from their legal residence.  Currently, this coverage is a one-time enrollment fee of $495.00 payable by cheque, MasterCard, or Visa.  Other exceptional advantages include:

  • No age limit to enroll
  • No medical examination is required
  • No limit to the costs incurred
  • All claims are handled immediately on a families’ behalf
  • Coverage is with the participant 24 hours a day 7 days a week
  • Technical communication services and translation services
  • Bereavement support for the family
  • Return of travel companion
  • Return of family pet
  • Legal referrals if required

When people have this kind of coverage there is total peace of mind for their life time of travel. If you would like additional information on how this benefit can be provided to you, please feel free to contact me.
