Death Away From Home

For those who enjoy traveling the world, there is a chance of passing away while away from home or a local hospital. A death away from home could be the result of natural causes such as a heart attack, an accident such as a vehicle collision, or even (but much more rarely) a crime.

The true cost of dying abroad

It’s not something many of us like to think about, but maybe we should. Transporting a body back to the USA can cost between $10,000 and $20,000. And that doesn’t include the airfare. To bring the cost of repatriation down, many next-of-kin have their loved one cremated in the country where they died. However, bringing back ashes can still cost between $1,200 and $2,000.

Many people believe that the Bureau of Consular Affairs will help pay for transporting the deceased’s remains back to the USA, but this is not true. So, what can you do to protect yourself financially?

Protect yourself and your family with our worldwide Out of Area Protection Plan (also known as the Death-Away-From-Home Plan)
Take out an Out of Area Protection Plan with Cremation Society and you or your family won’t have to worry about finding the money to bring you or a loved one home.

We have partnered with MASA TRS, or MASA Transport & Relocation Solutions, our vetted and trusted leader in emergency assistance transportation services, to give you access to their Out of Area Protection Plan.

This plan is usually only available to MASA TRS members as additional coverage, but our partnership means you can take out this plan without having to be a MASA TRS member.

What does an Out of the Area Protection Plan Cost?

Our partnership has allowed us to offer a manageable 1x fee for you: $449.00. We can also offer a payment plan to further serve you and your family. If you’d like to protect you and your family while you’re away from home, call us today at 707-269-7160 and speak with one of our advisors. Coverage takes just a few minutes to set up and arrange.

What are the benefits of this plan?

You are protected if you should die more than 75 miles away from your home, whether that’s in the USA or anywhere else in the world. So you can travel freely with peace of mind.

You can be sure the deceased’s remains will be transported to your chosen end-of-life provider at no extra cost, so your family won’t be faced with a huge bill.

You can ensure the deceased’s wishes are carried out because you won’t be forced to have a cremation or burial in the country when death occurred. Remember, some countries actually don’t allow cremations.

You won’t have to deal with the foreign consular services and other customs and immigration formalities on your own because our partner, MASA TRS, will take care of the bureaucracy for you.

You won’t be confused or frustrated by another country’s laws or traditions because MASA TRS is experienced in dealing foreign authorities and will explain everything to you.

You can rely on the speed and professionalism of the service because repatriations from overseas locations as well as within the United States are routinely handled by MASA TRS.

Premiums are extremely affordable and the coverage is for life, so you need arrange this only once.
