Britain comes bottom of ‘quality of life’ survey

28 July, 2011


According to a new survey, the UK has the lowest quality of life compared to 9 other large European countries. Although average household income is higher than anywhere else, the high cost of living, bad weather and long hours mean that France, Spain and Denmark have overall much better quality of life.

This will come as no surprise to those of you buying property overseas, so although exchange rates at the moment mean that property in Europe is relatively more expensive than when the Pound is strong, there is no shortage of Brits wanting to make the move abroad.

If you are making the move, speak to Currency Index about obtaining commercial exchange rates for sending money overeas.
