Travel Insurance

What would happen if a death occurred while you were traveling or at your seasonal residence?

The unfortunate truth is that many times the death of a love one occurs while they are away from home.  This forces us to take the necessary steps to handle arranging to have our loved one brought home from somewhere we may not be so familiar with.  The added expense of the preparation, administration and transportation from the place of death can add an unnecessary burden to the family. 

Just for example of what these costs could run; first you would have the contracted funeral home where the death has occurred -- these charges range from $ 1,500.00 to $3,500.00; then there would be the transportation from the place to death -- airfares can range from $ 300.00 to $900.00.  These are just estimates and could run much higher and would be much higher if the death occurs internationally.

Our Solution: Travel Protection Plan

 

What is the APASI Guaranteed Travel Assurance Plan?

 

Until now, there has been a void in prearrangement packages. To fill this void and provide for caring and efficient transport of mortal remains, APASI has created the "Guaranteed Travel Assurance Plan".  This assistance program responds when death occurs anywhere in the world, utilizing a network of priority senders. Repatriations are routinely handled from overseas locations as well as within the United States.

 

Why does everyone need this plan?

 

Although travel is an accepted way of life for millions of Americans, virtually none are prepared, either psychologically or financially, to deal with bringing home the mortal remains of a deceased person.


When an individual covered by APASI dies while more than 100 miles from his or her legal residence, the family is completely relieved of financial considerations and the need to make critical decisions at a time of great stress. One phone call will take care of everything involved in the return of mortal remains from anywhere in the world to the location specified by the producer of a pre-need plan.

Transportation from as little as 100 miles from home can be very costly. Speed and expertise can mean the difference between having the deceased's wishes carried out or falling under the bureaucracy of foreign laws and traditions. APASI has years of experience in handling the return of mortal remains from anywhere in the world.

 

With the Guaranteed Travel Assurance Plan, APASI will handle cost and arrangement of locating the sending funeral home,transporting the remains, processing death certificates, and, when death occurs overseas, foreign consular services and other customs and immigration formalities.
