Retirement Abroad Becoming More Appealing

Published: 6/22/2010

As the cost of living goes higher and higher in the UK so more people are looking at retiring to a different country say Saga Insurance.

A Saga Insurance spokeswoman explained that currently less than 1 percent of those retiring move abroad in order to cut their living costs, though there has been much more interest in the idea recently. It will help those about to retire that their property values are at all time highs. This gives them a good base from which to set up home abroad.

There are many factors to consider when living abroad said the Saga Insurance spokeswoman, with costs being just a part of the equation. Lifestyles are very different overseas and it can sometimes be difficult giving up things that have been part of life for so long.
