Vienna is revealed to be the best city to live in according to Mercer’s 2014 Quality of Living rankings. The Austrian city took the top spot, making it a desirable location for expats seeking a life abroad.
Certain factors were analysed during the survey including the likes of crime levels, air pollution, standards of international schools, housing quality, political stability, media censorship, public transport and of course, healthcare.
Expatriate medical insurance is at the forefront of things to cover when moving abroad and it would not go amiss in Vienna. Although the city does offer excellent medical care for all its citizens including expats, additional international travel health insurance will ensure a higher quality of hospital stays and clinical check-ups.
Doctors and hospital appointments are generally free to those who hold valid Austrian Health insurance and this is usually expanded to those working in the city as every employee is automatically covered by a public health insurance plan. However, additional global expat insurance will ensure that expats will be reimbursed for any specialist fees that they may incur.

It boasts famous historical sites and unparalleled works of art. Vienna contribute to an estimated 25% of Austria’s gross national product, making it one of the wealthiest regions in the world.
The city is home to a number of high quality hospitals that specialise in a range of medicines which is a reassurance to all expatriates who may face medical dilemmas. Pharmacies are a common site and just like the UK, over the counter drugs are readily available. The same rule applies to prescription medication. In cases of prescription medication; they can usually be picked up at the average price of 5.30 euros whilst your expatriate health insurance will cover the rest of the expense. Moreover, every district has at least one pharmacy that is open all night.
Vienna is a practical, profitable and admired city to move to with the city offering career prospects in virtually every line of work. Most of the jobs are found in the service sector and include work in trade, business and real estate.
With medical staff often speaking at least one foreign language, the most common being English, and with high quality services and the added assurance of expatriate health insurance, the decision to move to the thriving and best city in the world seems an easy one.
