Is an Avalon funeral plan right for me?

Avalon offer a range of plans to suit all wishes and budgets.

Why should I choose a prepaid funeral plan?

The cost of a funeral is rising at an alarming rate, up from an average of £1,920 in 2004 to £4,078 in 2018. Our market analysis suggests this will rise to more than £12,000 in 15 years’ time.

These spiralling funeral prices have added undue stress and financial pressure when the time comes to make the arrangements for a loved one, resulting in some families being forced to seek extra financial help or make difficult compromises on the quality of the funeral package – particularly when the loss is sudden and unexpected.

By choosing a funeral plan with Avalon, you can take control of the cost of your funeral at today’s prices.

By selecting your arrangements (you can always change your mind later) and paying for your funeral costs today, an Avalon prepaid funeral plan can potentially save you and your loved ones thousands of pounds in the future.

 

How can I pay for my funeral plan?

When you buy an Avalon funeral plan, you can pay with a lump sum or  flexible payment options for each prepaid funeral plan we offer, ensuring you can find and choose the right plan for your budget.

You can buy a plan by lump sum or you can spread the cost through regular monthly payments over up to 10 years, depending on your age. Remember, regardless of how much funeral costs rise over the duration of your repayment plan, your monthly payments will not increase.

To buy your Avalon funeral plan, speak to one of our friendly advisors on 0800 014 9112 or buy online safely and securely.

Frequently Asked Questions

What does my plan include?

Your plan guarantees the Funeral Director’s services at no extra cost to you or your next of kin, providing your plan is fully paid and the funeral is carried out by the Funeral Director allocated by Avalon. Your plan also includes an allowance towards the disbursements cost. The Funeral Director and the disbursements allowance are stated on your plan certificate. Your plan will also include any additional services you’ve selected and have made payment for or are making payments for.

If you purchased a plan with a Fixed Monthly Payment (insurance policy) your payments must be up to date and you must have had your plan for a minimum period of 2 years to use the plan.

Can I choose my Funeral Director?

We have an extensive UK-wide network of reputable Funeral Directors to fulfil the funeral arrangements in the future. When you purchase your plan we will allocate a Funeral Director. If you have a preferred Funeral Director we will do our best to allocate your plan to them, but this is not always possible. If it has not been possible to allocate your plan to your preferred Funeral Director we will choose an alternative one for you. If the Funeral Director we have nominated is not acceptable, please contact us to discuss alternative Funeral Directors who could provide the funeral.

What happens if I die before all my instalment payments have been made?

For extra peace of mind, if you choose to pay for your funeral plan by instalments over two or more years, you can benefit from our Avalon Promise. It means that if you die before all your instalments have been made, Avalon can cover the costs of all the services included in your chosen plan.

If you’ve bought a Balmoral, Highgrove or Windsor Way funeral plan, or a Build Your Own plan online, on or after 1st January 2019 in the UK, and you’ve chosen to pay over two years or more, you’ll benefit from the Avalon Promise. The Avalon Promise comes into effect when your plan has been in place for 12 months.

If your plan is not covered by the Avalon Promise and you die before all instalments have been paid, your representative will have two options. They can either pay the outstanding balance before the funeral, or cancel the plan in writing and we will return all payments, less a cancellation fee of £395 for standard plans or £95 for our Cremation Only plan.

Can I make changes to my plan after I have taken it out?

Yes, just contact us to make changes to your plan. If you wish to add extra services, additional costs may apply. This option is not available on our Cremation Only plan.

Will my money be secure?

Funeral Plans are our passion and our specialism, we are registered with the Funeral Planning Authority, which exists to protect your interests, so you can relax knowing that your money is held securely and managed independently.
