Planning Your Travel To A Funeral
Planning your travel to a funeral can be very stressful. Between grieving for the loss of a loved one, planning the funeral, alerting other family and friends of the death and memorial service, then you have to worry about planning your travel. Because we know how stressful this time can be, we have put everything you need to plan your trip in one central location.
If your traveling by air we have several links on this page to help you plan your flight. Because purchasing airfare to attend a funeral can be costly, you may want to call and ask if they offer bereavement airfare discounts. Some of the travel companies may not secure bereavement airfare discounts through the links provided so you may want to call to get their specific rates.
If your traveling by car to the funeral, you may want to have other family or friends join you to drive or assist with driving. It is extremely dangerous to drive when you are in an emotional state, and having small children on a car ride to a funeral may add more stress to an already stressful situation. If you decide to drive we have provided links to check gas prices on your route, maps for direction and car rental companies if needed and The Weather Channel so that you can get the extended forecast for traveling.
