The Worldwide travel insurance Plan ("Travel Plan") is another example of the wide choice of value-added products offered by Assurant Life of Canada®. This plan provides your family with a peace of mind knowing all details will be taken care of if your death occurs while travelling 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.

Complete Coverage with Attention to Detail... When someone covered by the Assurant Life of Canada® Worldwide Travel Insurance Plan dies 100 kilometers or more away from home or when they have crossed an international border, one toll-free phone call is all that is needed to begin 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. Travel Plan services include the following:
 

  • Handling of all necessary documents, including consular services if death occurs outside Canada.
  • Locating and arranging transportation to a local funeral establishment near the place of death, who will then prepare the deceased for transportation home to Canada.
  • Providing transportation for one traveling companion to return home with the deceased to Canada.
  • Traveling alone – If the insured is traveling alone, the plan provides transportation and reasonable travel expense for one next of kin to travel to the location of the sending funeral establishment and to return home with the deceased to Canada.

Shielding your family from unexpected financial loss has never been so easy and affordable!
