Planning Ahead For Travelling

What would you do if someone you loved died away from home? It is a reality that more and more families face every year.

In North America last year, there were over 28,000,000 trips of more than 100 km taken:

  • Travelling or vacationing
  • On business
  • Living at a second home
  • Receiving medical treatment
  • Visiting family or friends


There were over 45,000 families who had to face the harsh reality that 45 % of deaths are sudden and unexpected. Many families are forced to find a way to bring their loved one home. This can entail:

  • Identification of the body
  • Selecting an appropriate funeral home
  • Finding and coordinating with unknown funeral homes
  • Transportation for the deceased
  • Paying all the costs upfront, often totalling thousands of dollars
  • Assist in travel arrangements for loved ones and pets


To spare families grief and pain, Oliver’s Funeral Home offers The Guaranteed Travel Assurance Plan (GTAP). GTAP does all the work that would be left to an unprepared and grieving family. All you need to do is call one number and everything is taken care of. A GTAP has a one-time, lifetime fee of $525.00 (GST included,) and provides full protection and the following benefits:

  • Protects you when you travel more that 100 kms away from home, anywhere in the world.
  • Arranges for preparation and transportation of the deceased to your local funeral home.
  • Pays all costs including air travel.


For years GTAP has helped thousands of families bring their loved ones home. We invite you to put your mind at ease and let us help your family.

For more information or to enroll please contact us by telephone or email and ask for more information on The Guaranteed Travel Assurance Plan.

We take care of you - at home and away.

That is our promise to you.
