Planned In Advance

With an Avalon funeral plan, everything is planned and paid for, saving your loved ones time, money and stress. 

Why funeral planning matters for expats

The Timing

Unlike in the UK, here in Spain most funerals takes place within 24-48 hours, which leaves little time to make arrangements and may not allow enough time for loved ones to attend.

Language Barrier

Things may be misunderstood or difficult to explain. A Body Release form will need to be completed immediately which will be in Spanish, with no time to translate.

Costs & Payments

Costs are rising each year. On top of that Funeral Directors usually expect payment upfront and accessing family savings may be difficult if you need extra time or assets are frozen.

What our Customers Say

My dad took out a plan with Avalon when he moved to Spain a number of years ago. He recently passed away and from the outset Tania at Avalon has been amazing. At such a difficult time it was so reassuring to know that everything that needed to be done was being done professionally and in a very caring way. Likewise with the funeral company and celebrant they used. Can’t thank them enough. Would highly recommend.

Yvonne Harrington

Avalon Funeral plan staff are amazing and thorough and the members of staff I have dealt with have been highly professional and sensitive.
The funeral directors that they use are of the same high standard and made my recent loss so much easier to deal with due to their sensitivity and exacting standards of professionalism.
Thank you so much

Today we have met with Jay Patel again. Monday he explained everything thoroughly and was very professional and friendly. Today we bought our funeral plans as we have only just moved to Spain to retire we wanted it done for here and if back in U.K. We don’t want our family to have to organised it when our time comes. We would recommend Avalon and Jay Patel.
