Find peace of mind for you and your family with a prepaid funeral plan in Spain

If you live or regularly spend time in Spain, a prepaid funeral plan lets you protect your family from the complications and costs of arranging a funeral.

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 you a much shorter time to plan a funeral and ensure you are getting the best prices.

Avalon's choice of prepaid funeral plans are specially designed to provide funeral cover for UK nationals living or spending time in mainland Spain, the Canary Islands or the Balearic Islands.

By planning and paying for your funeral in advance, you can fix your funeral costs at today’s prices.

And when the time comes, our expert team of fluent English speakers will take care of all the arrangements in your chosen plan, saving your loved ones time, stress and money at a difficult time.

Plus, your plan moves with you, so if you split your time between home and abroad, you can have a funeral in the UK or Spain.

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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Has Brexit affected my funeral plan?

No. Whether you are a new or existing Avalon customer, you are still covered in both Spain and the UK.

If you do decide to move back to the UK permanently, you can convert your Spanish plan into a British plan free of charge (terms and conditions apply).

Will COVID-19 affect my funeral plan?

A funeral plan will cover the planholder regardless of their cause of death. However, availability of some features and procedures may depend on local social gathering and distancing rules.

How is a funeral plan different to a funeral insurance policy?

It’s important to note that these are two different products, and that choosing which is right for you will depend on your circumstances.

Funeral costs are rising year-on-year, and a key benefit of a funeral plan is that you will fix your cost at today’s prices, meaning that should you die in five, ten, or fifty years’ time, there is nothing more for you to pay.

More information on the differences can be found here.

How can I pay for my funeral plan?

You can choose to pay for your funeral plan either in full or in affordable monthly payments over several years.

You can also choose whether you would like to pay for your funeral plan in Pounds Sterling or Euros.

Can I choose a burial or cremation plan?

Yes. Our plans offer a range of options whether you wish to be buried or cremated in Spain, or for your body to be repatriated to maintain Great Britain. Please note plans do not include burial plots.
