Mortal remains transport costs often exceed $10,000

A 60-year-old woman from Texas and employee of a Redpoint corporate client died suddenly while on assignment in New Zealand. After Redpoint received the call from its client, operations staff made arrangements with the funeral home in a coastal city on the country’s North Island, with the air provider in Auckland, and with the receiving funeral home in College Station, TX, keeping the employee’s family updated on the transport of her body back home.

It is a scenario that no one likes to consider while making travel arrangements, but aside from the sadness surrounding such a loss, the financial costs — the preparation of the body, the casket, local transport and an overseas flight alongside other expenses — regularly amount to more than $10,000.

Cavalry combines the best medevac insurance with travel insurance benefits such as trip cancellation, trip interruption, lost baggage, primary medical expense coverages, and more. Cavalry is powered by Redpoint Resolutions, a medical and travel risk security company owned and operated by special operations veterans and physicians.
