People considering moving abroad could be glad to hear that expatriates tend to have a better quality of life.
Indeed, a recent survey conducted by the Post Office, found that 70 per cent of expatriate British people ranked themselves as very happy with their new life.
Furthermore, 60 per cent said that they felt a greater sense of community in their new country than they had experienced in the UK.
France, Spain and the US were the most popular destinations for people from the UK to move abroad to.
But wherever you are thinking of moving to, there are a number of things to consider when relocation overseas.
Among these is expatriate medical insurance to make sure that your family is covered should anything happen to their health.
Sarah Munro from the Post Office International Payments commented: "Although we've seen that the vast majority of people who relocated abroad are much happier in their adoptive countries, even just moving across the channel can feel like worlds apart from your old life in the UK. And it takes a lot of organising."
