Choose an Avalon Funeral Plan

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

Safe and Secure

The money you pay for your plan is paid into an independently managed Trust and is held and safeguarded until the time it is needed to pay for the funeral under UK trust laws design to protect funeral plan holders.

The Financial Services and Markets Act 2000 sets out the legislation that applies to funeral plans and you can be assured that Avalon’s plans and Trust Fund comply with the legislation.

Avalon manages the Trust in line with FCA legislation to ensure  that there is always enough money in the Trust to pay for the funerals of all our plan holders.

As Avalon is regulated by FCA all plans are covered by the FSCS scheme. This means in the unlikely event that Avalon were to fail, the FSCS scheme guarantees to find an equivalent funeral plan replacement or compensation which may be less than you have paid in.

Highly trained specialists

We have a team of funeral specialists who every day speak to individuals and their families over the phone and on video calls in the comfort of their own homes. Our Europe team can also visit you at home if you prefer. They'll talk you through our range of funeral plans, making sure you understand the details you so can make the right decision for you and your family

Time to consider your options

We want our customers to be happy with the plan they've bought. That's why we won't rush you to make a decision and will give you all the information you need.

Important documents to keep safe

When you take out a funeral plan with Avalon, we’ll send you a welcome pack which will include all of the information about your plan – this is the contractual information and our promise to you for the future. We will also contact a nominated representative on your behalf, if you give us permission, to tell them about the funeral plan you have chosen. It’s really important to speak to your family about your funeral plan so they know how it will help them at the difficult time of your death.

Your money held safely in Trust

The money for your funeral plan is kept safe in an independently-held Trust. Avalon follows strict guidance on how that Trust should be managed. Avalon ensures that the Trust always has enough funds to provide the funerals of all our customers. But in the unlikely event that Avalon were to fail, the FSCS scheme guarantees to find an equivalent funeral plan replacement or financial compensation, which may be less than you paid in.
