Your funeral, your plan, your way

Protect your family from funeral costs and complications with a European funeral plan

For expats in Europe, buying a European funeral plan helps your loved ones cope with unfamiliar procedures, language barriers and funeral costs.

We provide expat funeral plans in Spain, Mallorca and the Canary Islands, Tenerife, Portugal and Cyprus. In these countries, most funerals take place within 48 hours. This puts pressure on your loved ones to pay their respects and make all the arrangements in a very short timeframe.

Avalon's funeral plans for expats lets you make important decisions and take control of essential funeral costs in advance, so your family can focus on celebrating your life, without having to make difficult decisions about your funeral arrangements.

Why do you need a European funeral plan?

Different customs

Unlike the UK, it is routine in many European countries for the funeral service to proceed within 24-48 hours.

Costs

Funeral costs are rising year on year. Will your loved ones be able to pay for your funeral?

Coping

The death of a family member or a friend is a difficult time. Will your family or next of kin cope with making numerous decisions for a funeral in a different country?

Payment

Funeral bills have to be paid within a short time frame. Will they have the money to pay the bill or, if you have insurance, how quickly can they cash the policy?



Control

You may have specific requirements that you wish to be carried out. Do your family know what you want?

Health

Your health may have prevented you from purchasing life insurance. Do you have an alternative in place?

Savings

Your savings may not be sufficient to cover funeral costs or the interest may not be keeping up with funeral inflation. Your assets could be frozen when you die.

Language barriers

How well do your loved ones speak the language? Will they need help arranging the funeral?
