Spain ‘a top choice’ for those thinking of moving abroad

Spain has been named among the top five destinations that people would consider moving to if they were going to leave the UK, new research has found.

A survey conducted by Post Office International Payments revealed that the European nation, which was the fourth most popular location named in the poll, was a possible choice for ten per cent of those questioned.

The firm also pointed out that it was the highest-placed nation where English is not the first language.

One of the top reasons given for buying a property in Spain or elsewhere in the world is the chance to have a better quality of life, while other reasons to move included warmer weather, discovering a new culture and the adventure of emigrating.
