According to a survey from, the quality of life which people can experience in the two countries is the best on the continent, with France boasting a lower retirement age than the UK and more hours of sunshine.

Such news could interest Brits looking to invest in property overseas.

Those who choose to buy a home in either France or Spain could find that an annual travel insurance policy is better value for money than single trip insurance cover policy.

And for when their family and friends jet out to visit them, a group travel insurance policy could prove to be wise.
