How much coverage do you recommend for repatriation?

Short Answer

Repatriation will cover the cost to transport a deceased person's remains to their home, and is included within the Medical Evacuation benefit on most policies. For the Medical Evacuation benefit, we typically recommend $100,000 for international travel, or $250,000 in coverage if you are going on a cruise or traveling to a remote location.

Policies typically cover repatriation up to the full amount of the Medical Evacuation benefit. However, some policies will also include a separate limit specifically for repatriation of remains. The policies that include this limit often provide $10,000 to $20,000 for repatriation, which is ample coverage.

This information can vary based on the travel insurance policy. Please review the policy certificate to verify coverage. If you have questions about a specific policy, please contact us directly at 800-240-0369. Our customer service representatives are available 24/7 and are delighted to help!
