Welcome to Safe Return Assistance Plan

When a loved one dies while away from home, the only thing that matters is returning them home safely. Whether travelling for work or pleasure, staying at a second home or visiting relatives, the unexpected can and does happen.

And when you’re in an unfamiliar place, dealing with a tragedy can be so much harder, compounded by unknown languages and customs or unanticipated costs.

What do you do? Where do you start?

The best answer: Start here and now, before you leave.

Getting your loved one home, no matter what the circumstances, is but a toll-free phone call away for members of Safe Return Assistance Plan.
