Heading South For the Winter? Don’t forget your travel protection.

Travel Protection Plan

Ah… The sights and sounds of Autumn–football, foliage, and the smell of turkey roasting. Unless you’re a snowbird, that is.

If you’re one of the thousands of people who make the annual trek to the Sunbelt to stay ahead of Jack Frost, then your thoughts are more likely on packing up the car or the RV, winterizing your house, and hitting the road.

It takes a strong commitment to relocate twice a year. The list of to-dos in getting ready to flee the snow can be long. So you’ll be forgiven for overlooking a detail or two. Especially if a detail is something that no one wants to think about—dying while away from home.

It’s estimated that the population of Florida increases more than 5% due to winter residents and one small Arizona town claims to add 2 million in population during winter months. We also know that the month with the highest death rate is January. So if you are a snowbird you might want to have a contingency plan in case the unthinkable happens and you die away from home.

Dying away from home is expensive. In addition to the expenses you would have if you die near your residence, you also have the added costs of transporting the body back to your home state. Depending on the circumstances, costs can be upwards of $15,000. Luckily, there is a very easy and very cost-effective way to guard against the high cost of dying away from home—a travel protection policy.

Travel protection policies are designed to remove the worry of handling the difficult and expensive logistics that come from dying while traveling. You pay a low one-time fee and the transportations arrangements will be taken care of for you. The plans are perfect for anyone who spends time away from home, whether for business or pleasure.
