Death-Away-From-Home Plan

If you like to travel, there’s a chance that you won’t die in your home or local hospital. Your death 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 air fare. To bring down the cost of repatriating remains, 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. A lot of people believe that the Bureau of Consular Affairs will help pay for transporting the deceased’s remains back to the USA, but that is not true. So what can you do to protect yourself financially?
