Thinking about death while traveling definitely isn’t sexy or fun. However, it’s a necessary part of planning and shouldn’t be taken lightly. Travel.state.gov can guide Americans in the necessary steps if death happens to a loved one while traveling.
However, did you know it can cost up to $10,000 to have a body shipped back to your loved ones? There are travel insurance plans that can cover this which is another reason having travel insurance is vital for all international travel. Please do some research and find the plans that are right for you and your family but whatever you do, DO NOT travel without the proper coverage!
