The 3 major differences between Portuguese and British funerals

Here are three reasons why you need to protect your family with a funeral plan:

1. Funerals in Portugal can take place much quicker

In the UK, funerals can take weeks to organise. In Portugal, however, funerals are often carried out with 48 hours of the death – sometimes even sooner. Although funerals for expats can take a little longer, your loved ones will have to make important decisions in a very short time frame.

3. It’s much harder to shop around

Even in the UK, where you might have a couple of weeks to plan a funeral, it's hard to make decisions and think clearly when you're grieving. It's even more difficult in Portugal, when everything has happen more quickly, with language barriers and unfamiliar systems.

4. Funeral Directors want to be paid upfront

It's  common for Funeral Directors in Portugal to request full or partial payment upfront. That means your loved ones will have to find hundreds, even thousands of Euros at short notice.

For British expats living in Portugal, a prepaid funeral plan helps loved ones cope with unfamiliar procedures, language barriers and funeral costs.
