Find Your Own Just-Right Escape Overseas with Our Global Retirement Index

Welcome to International Living

The World’s Most Well-Respected Source
for Overseas Opportunities Since 1979…

Congratulations—you’ve made a smart decision today to explore the places around the world where you could afford to kick back and enjoy life on your own terms.

In our Global Retirement Index—yours FREE with your International Living membership today—you’ll find our detailed report on the world’s top retirement havens—16 safe, good-value destinations where you can live better for less—all of them compared, contrasted, ranked, and rated.

Discover the places that offer the best climate, make it easiest to integrate, provide the best benefits for retirees, offer the best-value and quality healthcare, and more.

In the States, retirement is fast becoming a privilege of the wealthy, but in the right places overseas, you can embrace the lifestyle of your dreams…for half what it costs you to stay home.

In the pages of International Living each month, we point you to new finds, explore in detail your best options, connect you to the people on the ground you need to know, and hand you the how-to solutions you need to make going overseas smooth and easy. 

In the right places, you could have a cottage on a quiet beach…an apartment in a vibrant city with a great café culture…a mountain hideaway where the air is crisp…and live the good life, on as little as $24,000 a year…

A budget that would have you scrimping in the States...can be enough to live large on overseas.

It means you could retire early… or even buy that second home you figured you could never afford…and spend the cold winter months in a warm-weather haven you love…

Once you’re in our International Living “world,” you’re instantly connected to a network of experts and expats who share their finds, recommendations, encouragement, and advice.

With International Living you gain not only insights and inspiration, but sound, on-the-ground advice designed to save you time, money, and frustration, too.

We’ll help you find the place overseas that’s right for you—fast—so you can stop dreaming and start living, sooner than you ever imagined.

What International Living Readers Say…

“I started reading International Living in the late 80's as my husband and I started talking about moving to the Caribbean. I've been a faithful reader since that time and many of the articles had a direct impact on our thoughts and plans. We now live in Grenada, West Indies and I still rely on International Living to provide timely and informative articles that are important to me as an expat. I highly recommend International Living to anyone who travels, wants to live or is living overseas.” – C.L.

International Living is the reason that I am on a wonderful journey overseas, living my best life. It all started when I was laid off at the age of 61 and couldn't find another job. I had no idea what to do, until I read about IL. ... I am so glad I made the move. The information from IL was invaluable in making this happen.” – D.L.

“I have been receiving IL for about 2 years. I am always excited and pleased with the in depth, interesting, informative format.” – J.H.
