So we thought it would be interesting to find out exactly why the idea of moving abroad is such a draw to us Brits, with a definitive list of top reasons!
Even now, there are literally thousands of people moving abroad and in the last few years there has been no sign of this stopping.
For some, it’s a job offer that can mean a move abroad is the best thing to do. Often people move abroad to get a better job or even start a new business and is apparently one of the most popular reasons for moving. Even during what are tough economic times, the draw to invest in a new business abroad is still very significant. For example, in recent years Dubai has become a prominent destination because of the potential for reaping rewards – especially in relation to the property market over there.
Another draw to moving abroad is of course the cost of living. The UK ranks among the most expensive countries to live in the world, so having a chance for a better life with lower bills is obviously a massive draw.
Countries like France, Spain or Germany tend to offer lower living costs in things like food, transport and housing. These are also popular destinations for people approaching retirement who want to make the most of low cost living while enjoying better weather and a slower pace of life.
Another significant reason to move abroad is of course an improvement to your lifestyle. This can include better education, a better culture, beautiful scenery and of course a much slower pace of life, depending on where you are going.
And as we’ve previously mentioned, retirement is an extremely popular reason to move abroad. After working in the UK, many Brits want to soak up some sunshine and if they have the finances can enjoy a European destination as a retirement option, while knowing that the UK isn’t every too far away.
