One in four Britons dreaming of a life abroad

A quarter of Britons are seriously considering either moving abroad or buying a second home outside the UK, with Spain the most popular destination of choice, according to new research from leading overseas living abroad information website. The survey also revealed, however that only a third of those seriously looking to move or buy abroad think they will do so in the next three years, whilst another third will be waiting ten years or more before making the move.

Spain is still the number one destination of choice for the relocating Brits, with one in three planning their move to take advantage of the Spanish sun. One in five opt for France, followed by South Africa, Australia and Italy as the next most popular destinations.

The research which questioned 1,034 UK adults identified a variety of motivators, the most popular being to improve quality of life (57%) followed by the wish to enjoy a better climate (46%). Lower taxes and house prices were not cited as specific factors but general disaffection with today's Britain was cited as a reason for wanting to move for more than a quarter (26%) of those surveyed.

The research also revealed that friend and family topped the list of things that people would most miss about the UK followed by English language television, education and pubs.
