The Price of a Funeral

The Cyprus Repatriation Burial Funeral Plan price of 7,450 EUR compares to the current average price of an ‘at need’ funeral price should you require a similar funeral today.

At time of sale, Avalon will allocate your plan to a specific Funeral Director(s) and have negotiated a wholesale price for the costs of provision of your funeral. These wholesale costs to Avalon vary, for example, by region and plan type but on average are for this plan are 6,017 EUR + repatriation fees + annual uplift for inflation at today’s prices.

Unlike the plan price you pay which is fixed, the at need price today is likely to rise with inflation each year until you need a funeral. These wholesale costs to Avalon are also uplifted for inflation each year.

Trust Amounts

All the money you pay for your plan is paid into the Trust. Avalon do not receive any money from the trust unless it is funded to over 110% of required funds to provide your funeral in the future. If the trust is funded to over 110%, we receive a maximum of 900 EUR from the trust for every plan we sell to cover our reasonable administration overheads and expenses of running the business for each plan.

The amount Avalon receive can vary but is subject to the maximum amounts per plan and subject to the FCA funding rules. These maximums are the amounts certified by the actuary to ensure we always have sufficient funds retained on trust to provide the funeral services at time of need. This is not a fee or a charge to you and any amount you pay to us is fully refundable, subject to the cancelation terms of your plan. Please see our Funeral Plan Trusts page.

Subject to professional advice and guidelines and the Trust being over 10% in surplus, Avalon may receive additional amounts from the Trust.
