Next Friday we are due to visit from friends in a continental European country for 5 days.

My friend's MIL has died and the funeral is next week before we are due to arrive. We have offered to cancel, change our flights to another time maybe in Oct half term, or stay in a hotel - they live near a major city and we could find accommodation easily (I have already checked availability) and maybe see them a little bit but not be on top of them.

They have said that we are still very welcome and will be a distraction for them, and please don't cancel flights.

What would you do? Still go? I feel like we are going to be very intrusive. But I don't want to offend by not going when they have said we can.

You have offered they have said to still go. I would go, stay with them but maybe have plans to book a hotel if it feels uncomfortable, let them know you won't be offended if they need space.
