Supply Partner Legal Understanding

The Guaranteed Travel Assurance Plan, (GTAP), by APASI, offers enhanced benefits for the funeral home and client families in the event a death occurs just 75 miles from the family’s legal residence, from anywhere around the world. GTAP is not insurance, and no licensing is required to sell the membership. Enrollment is simple and can be completed online, or with a paper contract, for a suggested onetime payment of $450, and APASI pays all costs associated with the return of the deceased, including air transportation. The program can be sold to anyone; pre-arrangements are not required.
