Planning for the future is vital to ensure you get the best deals on all your financial products. When it comes to funerals it's no different. The average funeral cost pounds 2,857 last year, up from just pounds 868 in 1990. But, like everything else, prices are expected to keep rising and a funeral could cost as much as pounds 5,500 by 2020. While many people don't like to think ahead to their funeral, it can save you and your loved ones money. The Mirror has teamed up with Dignity to offer readers the Guaranteed Funeral Plan to help beat rising costs and save money. Here's why it pays to plan:

Take out a funeral plan now and you'll actually save money by freezing the cost of a traditional cremation funeral at today's prices - no matter how much prices rise in the future your funeral arrangements specified in the plan will be covered.

Low interest rates on your investments means they may not perform as expected, unlike a funeral plan which will cover the full cost of a funeral when it is needed.

Give yourself peace of mind that you won't leave your family struggling with money worries.

Help protect your family with support and guidance through a difficult time.

Acceptance is guaranteed for all over 50s.

You can pay for a plan in a lump sum or spread the cost with flexible payment options to suit you.

Once you've sorted your plan you can forget about it and get on with enjoying the rest of your life.
