A workation may be a fantastic option for Britons who wish to live abroad but do not want to commit to becoming full-time expats. Combining remote work and leisure overseas, a workation is the best way to travel and live overseas without becoming an expat or quitting your job.

Travel company KAYAK has released a Work from Wherever Index which looked at the best workation destinations.

Analysing 111 countries, the company ranked each on 22 factors, including travel cost, local prices, health and safety, social life and weather.

The goal was to reveal “the best countries that are easiest to work from while having a lot of fun in your off hours”.

Laure Bornet, GM, KAYAK EMEA said: “We expect workations to be a rising trend amongst travellers in 2022 and beyond.”

The best country for remote working was Portugal.

The country is already popular with expats and holidaymakers.

It makes sense it would be the perfect place to combine a holiday and remote work.

KAYAK said the country scored “high across the board in all categories, including great weather, high abundance of places for going out, low-crime rates, and relatively low cost of living.

“Portugal also offers a digital nomad visa, and many locals have a high English proficiency that attracts expats.”

In second place was Spain, another extremely popular destination for both expats and holidaying Britons.

In third place was Romania. The country ranked well across the board, except weather.

The country more than makes up for its colder climate by having very attractive prices for rent and food.

Coming fourth was Mauritius and its great weather.

The Indian Ocean island is attractive in terms of prices too, with long-term apartment rental £157 a month on average.

Rounding up the top five was Japan.

While an expensive country, Japan ranked well for social life.

Japan’s weather varies greatly depending on the season, with winter skiing opportunities and hot summers.
