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 traditionally 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.

What's more, if you pass away before your plan is fully paid, we can cover the cost with the Avalon Promise*.

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.

Choose your country:

If you pass away before your plan is fully paid we can cover the cost with the Avalon Promise


If you choose to pay for your funeral plan over two or more years, you’ll receive the Avalon Promise. This means that if you pass away before your plan is fully paid, Avalon will still provide all the services included in your plan.

  • The only plan provider that works with local, independent Funeral Directors and offers this level of security

  • Peace of mind for you and your family

  • Comes into effect after your plan has been in place for 18 months

  • Your family can focus on celebrating your life, instead of worrying about the cost of your funeral

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.


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


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?


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?


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


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


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?
