If you want to travel as a British expat then here is everything that you might need to know about the most popular countries, and the benefits of living in each.
The Netherlands lead the way when you look at family experience. Their quality of education is one of the main draws. If you want to retire over there then the Netherlands is a fantastic location because it’s classed as being one of the safest countries in the world. If you do want to travel to another country so you can retire, then it helps to look into pensions for expats too.

Germany is another country which is fantastic for expats. They have a great economy and they also have very strong business prospects too. One of the best benefits of visiting Germany is that they have a good level of pay too, so do keep that in mind if you are thinking about travelling to a brand-new country.
New Zealand is the third-most desirable country in the world for expats. The main benefit of travelling to New Zealand is that it is home to some of the most stunning landscapes around. 58% of expats have stated that they moved to New Zealand because it is able to offer a very high-quality of life. When you look at economics however, you will soon see that it isn’t the best, so do keep this in mind.
Norway very narrowly missed the first-place spot for this year. It emerged short because of the overall life experience. The country rocketed ahead and it rose four places when compared to last year. One of the main reasons for this is because they have a very strong economy and they are a very safe environment for families too.
Singapore comes in at the top spot for travellers and expats. It has a strong performance when you look at family criteria, experience, economics and more. The area was able to score high when you look at job prospects, improved earnings and more. The country’s annual salary happens to come in at $117,904 and this is well over $18,000 higher when you look at the expat income across the globe. The potential for higher earnings however does reflect a much higher cost of living. It should be noted that 31% of expats have their own home in Singapore. A strong economy and financial affairs are just some of the many reasons why so many people choose to move to Singapore.
Of course, there are so many great countries across the world and if you are planning on becoming an expat then you will need to do your research so that you can make sure that you make the best decision. If you don’t, then you may find that you end up regretting your move and that you are not financially stable enough to live your best life. This guide should give you a solid starting point for your journey either way.
