Giving up chocolate, drinking a little less, kicking a bad habit and losing weight are all popular New Year resolutions. But have you considered a resolution to get your affairs in order, like arranging your funeral plan?
The New Year is generally considered an opportunity to make a fresh start and people take up resolutions to improve their health, happiness or another aspect of their lives. But despite the initial optimism did you know that 88% actually end up failing, according to a recent survey by The British Psychological Society? If you’re looking for a resolution that is less likely to fall by the wayside, then you should consider a funeral plan. Avalon’s plans are a simple, thoughtful way of protecting your family and close friends from rising funeral costs and reducing their emotional burden when the time comes.
Here are some of the important benefits of our funeral plans:
-Take the worry away and save your loved ones from difficult decisions after you've gone
-Remove the heavy financial burden and language barriers
-Ensure all the essential arrangements and costs are covered in advance
-24 hour bereavement line with British operators fluent in the local dialect
Financial Benefits: Funeral costs have increased by 70.6% in the past 10 years and have risen to an average of £4,078 in 2017*. If funeral prices continue to rise at the same rate, this figure is predicted to reach over £8,000 by 2027†. With an Avalon Funeral Plan, the cost of your funeral will be frozen at today’s prices to protect you and your loved ones. Furthermore, our flexible payment options mean you can pay in a lump sum, by instalments over a fixed term of up to 10 years or even with interest free payments.
Emotional Benefits: Unfortunately, every year thousands of expats pass away without a plan in place meaning their nearest and dearest are left to make difficult decisions on their own. Whats more, at a time of considerable grief, your loved ones may not have the right level of understanding to handle the complex funeral procedures abroad. By taking out a plan today, you could lessen the heartache with a simple and thoughtful way of protecting your loved ones from the worry that a funeral abroad can otherwise bring.
