Bereavement Air Fares
With the family nucleus spreading out across the country, families may have to travel considerable distances to attend a funeral. If they ask, the airlines may give them a discount for last minute flights made by families traveling to funeral services. Discounts vary depending on the airline. If the airline requires proof of attendance at a funeral service, the funeral home will be happy to provide the necessary documentation.
Important note: Many times, the bereavement fare can be more expensive than a current discount program that may be running. Ask for the best price available and then mention the bereavement request.
