Avalon is one of Europe’s leading pre-paid funeral plan specialists. The company was established in 1993 and offers a range of pre-paid funeral plans to customers across the UK and ex-pats in Spain, Cyprus, Turkey, Malta, Portugal and Tenerife. Customers can buy Avalon plans directly or via a number of carefully selected third party partners.
Pre-paid funeral plans help to protect customers and their loved ones from the risk of rising funeral costs and the worry of having to arrange the funeral when the time comes. Funeral costs are increasing more rapidly than either inflation or average savings returns. The average cost of a basic funeral has risen by over 80% since 2005*.
Avalon is a registered provider of the Funeral Planning Authority (FPA), the self-regulatory and independent organisation that protects consumers’ interests across the UK funeral planning sector. The FPA ensures that registered providers maintain high standards of professionalism and safeguard funds paid by customers so that, when the time comes, their funeral is provided in accordance with their wishes.
