Bus/Financial - Finance (general) / Bank Statement
French term or phrase: Contr/Rapatriement
I have been asked to translate some bank statements by a client and one transaction which appears several times is marked as "Contr/Rapatriement" and appears as a 5-figure deposit in the credit column.

I cannot find out what this might be so far. I did think it could be 'contrat assistance rapatriement' but that seems unlikely because the figure appears several times in different statements for the same individual, so that seems unlikely.

I understand that "repatriation" can be used in a financial context to mean the re-conversion of a foreign currency into one's home currency, I wonder if this might be along the right lines in this case.

All help would be appreciated on this one because I'm pretty stuck!

Repatriation contract
Explanation:
"Contrat de rapatriement", "contract of repatriation", is what I understand. This is an insurance expression. If you go abroad and get ill over there at the point you need to be brought back to your country, the disposals of your repatriation contract will cover your travel and your medical expenses, both abroad and in your country.

Notes to answerer
Asker: I'm just not convinced by this because of the context; I cannot understand why a person would have several instances of this on a bank statement in the same month. I don't disagree with your explanation, I just wonder whether there's another meaning.
