Our Services – The Travel Plan

The Travel Plan (“Travel Plan”) provides coverage if a death occurs while traveling away from home.

If a death should occur while out of the country or even just out of town, returning the deceased to their home can be an expensive and complicated process. The Travel Plan takes care of all the details and associated costs.


When someone dies 100 kilometers or more away from home, one toll-free phone call is all that is needed to being the process of returning the deceased to their home. Travel Plan associates are on call 24 hours a day, seven days a week and will immediately begin notifying the appropriate parties necessary for a quick and safe return.

As a Worldwide Travel Assistance Plan participant you are not obligated to pay for your travel plans in one immediate, upfront payment. Your payments can be made over the same terms as your preneed policy and combined with your preneed bill.
