The Worldwide Travel Assistance Plan

Here’s your passport to peace of mind

Today, it is not unusual for people, especially retirees, to spend significant time away from their homes each year vacationing, visiting relatives or attending special events. If a death should occur while out of the country or just out of town on a brief trip, bringing a loved one back home can be a complicated and expensive process. There’s no need to worry though. The Worldwide Travel Assistance Plan, offered by Purple Shield Plan, takes care of all the details and expenses.

We cover all of the details

  • Location and transportation to a funeral establishment where the death occurs.
  • Transportation of the deceased back to their home.
  • Handling of all necessary documents, including consular services if outside Canada.
  • Transportation home for a traveling companion.
  • If the Participant is traveling alone, transportation and reasonable travel expenses for next of kin to accompany the deceased back home.
