    Funeral urns

    Not all airlines authorize passengers to carry a funeral urn, whether as cabin or hold luggage. As security is being reinforced in all airports, travelling with a funeral urn can become somewhat problematic.

    Avoid any disappointment by entrusting your funeral urn to a funeral shipping professional. We offer you an all-inclusive price to take care of all the formalities and carry out the transfer of the urn to the destination of your choice.
