Your Passport to Peace of Mind

Today it is not uncommon for individuals and families, especially retirees, to spend significant time away from home vacationing, visiting relatives, working or attending special events. Most often these trips are relaxing, enjoyment filled endeavors that provide lasting memories. However, at times the unthinkable does occur.

It’s unfortunate, but if a death should occur while you’re out of the country or even just out of town on a brief trip, bringing a deceased loved one back home can be a complicated and expensive process. It can cost thousands of dollars, involves cooperation by the airlines and if overseas, can involve working with the embassy.

The Guaranteed Travel Assurance Plan from American Pre-Arrangement Services, Inc. can take care of all the details and expenses needed to bring your loved one home.
