88% of Brits consider Emigrating within 5 years

Mon 7th Nov 2011

Flights comparison site, Skyscanner, have published the findings of a report, which surveyed 1167 people, asking them their attitudes towards starting a new life abroad.

A considerable 88% of those questioned wanted to leave Britain for another country within 5 years, believing that they could enjoy a better lifestyle and take advantage of cheaper housing, better job prospects and cheaper cost of living.

Of those surveyed, 19% admitted that a better climate was a big attraction, whilst 20% considered that such a move would allow them a better lifestyle.

However, 39% of those who favoured emigration fell in the 18-45 age group.

Sam Baldwin, Skyscanner Travel Editor commented: "For many people the idea of ‘living the dream' abroad is very alluring. The Skyscanner survey revealed that our perception of life abroad is very positive – perhaps overly so – and many people come back from a holiday enamoured with their destination. Interestingly, Spain and USA were two of the most popular places even though both countries are currently suffering from their own economic problems.

"The reality of uprooting yourself and moving to a different country comes with its own frustrations and difficulties, but for those who take the challenge it can be a very enriching and rewarding experience."

Australia was revealed as the most popular destination with 15% of those surveyed chosing to move down under, however Spain took second place with 14% of the vote.
