Overseas health insurance customers could be among those who feel safe in Spain.
According to a survey by sunshine.co.uk, the country was listed as the destination in which people felt safest.
Carmen Hernandez Gomez, market analyst at the Spanish Tourism Office, said that people from the UK in particular tend to feel at home in Spain.
“That’s one of the main things, they don’t feel like they are in a foreign country.”
She added that the roads are safe, hospitals and airports are modern and Spanish people are “friendly and welcoming”.
Expatriates who are keen to ensure that they have access to the best hospitals might want to look into checking that their overseas medical insurance is up to date.
This could be especially important because people from overseas will not always have access to the same state health benefits as those born in Spain.
