Three million Americans and Canadians, and more than a million people from the UK have retired abroad.

It has been reported by Senior Housing News that the number of Brits retiring to other countries has doubled in the past 7 years. The BBC report uses data from retirement websites around the world to reveal that 3 million Americans and Canadians, and more than a million people from the UK have retired abroad. The report cites the low cost of medicine, English speaking communities and affordable homes as the reason that many are “heading to tropical destinations, including South America and South East Asia where it is doable to live on less that $40 per day.”

Helping thousands of retirees moving abroad every year, the team at Interdean were naturally interested by the recent research. A representative from the firm explains what attracts so many Brits approaching retirement to consider moving overseas for their senior years.

“For some people, the first real chance that they get to explore the world is when they retire, because of work and family commitments. It’s interesting that so many people are considering far flung destinations like moving to Brazil and other South American and South East Asian locations. It is important for those approaching retirement age to think about things like medical care and distance from home when selecting their chosen location.”
