Peace of mind with a pre-paid funeral plan in Spain

Protect your family from the complications and costs of arranging a funeral in Spain

Avalon's pre-paid funeral plans are specially designed for UK expats living in Spain or living between Spain and the UK – to pay for funeral costs in advance and provide help and support for their family at the time of death.

Why do I need an expat funeral plan?

The Spanish funeral system is different to the UK system in many ways, with funerals traditionally taking place within 48 hours of the death, giving your family a much shorter time to plan a funeral.

Language barriers and an unfamiliar Spanish funeral system may make a difficult time even more stressful for your loved ones. When the time comes, our English-speaking specialist team will take care of all the arrangements in your chosen plan, helping to save your loved one’s time, stress and money at a difficult time.

Your plan moves with you, so if spend time living in both the UK and Spain you can have a funeral either country.

The Avalon Promise provides extra peace of mind for you and your family

 

If you choose to pay for your funeral plan in instalments, you can benefit from the Avalon Promise. Avalon will still provide all the services included in your plan if you pass away before your plan is fully paid if:

  • You die as a result of an accident at any time

  • Your plan has been in place for 12 months for a UK plan or 18 months for one of our Europe plans

This means your loved ones won’t have to make up the difference for the cost of the services in the plan and can focus on celebrating your life, instead of worrying about finding the money to pay for your funeral.

Find more information about the Avalon Promise. 

Full Avalon Promise terms, conditions and exclusions can be found in the UK plan Terms and Conditions and Europe plan Terms and Conditions

Why do I need a funeral plan if I live in Spain?

Rising funeral costs, language barriers and an unfamiliar Spanish funeral system can make it difficult for your loved ones to make funeral arrangements.

Traditionally, most Spanish funerals take place within 48 hours and are paid for in advance, meaning it may be difficult for friends and family still in the UK to attend. Any delay may incur more costs.

Avalon’s funeral plans for expats in Spain let you pay for your funeral in advance and protect your loved ones against unexpected costs and complications. To find the plan that’s right for you and your family, call our team today on +34 966 799 070 or buy your plan online.
