Many people choose to take out a ‘pre-paid’ or ‘pre-payment’ funeral plan so they can help their Family and Friends at a difficult time by making their own preferences known. This can also alleviate any worries the Family might have about paying for the funeral.
Another advantage of taking out a plan is that you will be paying for your funeral at today’s prices. This means that the funeral plan will pay for your funeral however much funeral costs have risen since the plan was taken out.
Please contact us to find out more about how pre-paid funeral plans work, and what you need to consider when choosing a plan.
With funeral inflation going up three times faster than retail prices (and probably even faster compared with your wages or pension!) it make sense to lock in the cost of your funeral plan as early as you can, so Iberian Funeral Plans have introduced the Almond Plan specifically for the Algarve.
We as a leading provider of Funeral Plans and having been established in Portugal for some 10 years as a legally constituted Lda Company are able to offer interest free terms over 5 years, which makes funeral plans very affordable. The bigger the deposit, the lower the monthly repayments. And you are protected against the rising cost of funerals in general and also when funeral plan prices rise.
That is why we have developed the Almond plan for Algarve residents – a basic plan that provides for cremation but provides for all the necessities surrounding death as well as freezing the price at today’s costs, being exclusive of IVA, and will always be available however long you live.
The Almond Plan €2495
Providing: Fixed cost and cost is frozen from day 1.
- Guaranteed Service – However long you live.
- Exempt from IVA/VAT representing a saving of some €750
based on today’s average cost of a funeral.
- Professional Contracted Funeral Directors.
- Flexible interest free payment methods over 60 months.

The Iberian Almond Plan – This plan is specifically for the Algarve
Dealing with the death of a family member is always difficult, particularly for those who have to make the funeral arrangements. This time can be made much easier for those grieving if a prepaid funeral plan is in place at the time of your death.
A prepaid funeral plan will alleviate the need for most decision making by your family, as you will have decided, through your plan, how your funeral will be conducted.
The following will help you recognise the benefits of planning ahead
Having a prepaid funeral plan saves your family from having to make decisions about your funeral. Many will find arranging a funeral a daunting task, particularly for someone to whom they were very close; they are already experiencing a sad loss. They may feel ill-equipped to make decisions concerning the various elements of a funeral and where there is more than one family member involved there can be difficulties in agreement.
There are many important decisions to be made when planning a funeral service, including the choice of coffin, travel arrangements have to be made, and the type of service has to be decided on.
Plan ahead with a prepaid funeral plan and save your family from experiencing additional grief.
In addition to saving your family additional stress, there can be financial advantages to taking out a prepaid funeral plan.
Funeral expenses continue to rise, but by prepaying for your Almond Prepaid Funeral Plan you prevent increases in the cost of the funeral. Regardless of increases in funeral costs between you taking out your plan and your death, your Almond Prepaid Funeral Plan will cover the cost of your chosen funeral arrangements.
Planning ahead for this guaranteed eventuality may seem morbid, but at least you will have the comfort of knowing you have made your choices (the coffin, what special clothes you may want to wear on your last journey and even the flowers you would like) and have taken away some of the concerns of your loved ones. Prepaid funeral plans give you the ability to decide every detail of your future service.
