Here at Expat Insider Guides we are not sponsored by any companies, we don’t earn advertising revenue and we don’t take any commissions. We do this so that we can be completely impartial, honest and unbiased. We will tell you the truth about the locations and this kind of information is worth paying for.
We may even save you money thanks to our recommendations and tips.

No, we hate it when companies do that – so we don’t do it.

Some locations are bigger than others. The authors of the larger cities have taken more time to write the guides and need to be remunerated accordingly.
But we always keep our guides affordable.
Sorry about that – we are working on it! Additional locations will be launched shortly and we will add Expat Insider eGuides for more destinations as soon as we find great Authors to write them.
There are two guides ‘Relocation Guides’ for each city so that we can answer the very specific questions which arise at the different stages of a move.
The first guide for each location is the “Guide to Decide” guide. This is written to answer the kinds of questions you have when you are considering or planning a move to a new city – lifestyle, cost of living, type and availability of housing, quality of schooling and so on.
The second guide we call the ‘Arrive and Survive’ guide. These eGuide address all the detailed “nitty gritty” issues people face before they arrive and in the first days and months of living in a new location – how to set up utilities, internet & phone line, find a trusted doctor & dentist, where to get a good hair cut, how much to tip, recommended restaurants, family outings etc.
Our insights, recommendations and insider tips should make the process of setting up home and settling into your new life quicker, easier and far less stressful.
We ensure that our authors have lived in the city they are writing about for some time and know it inside out. They use their own knowledge and experience and consult with friends and contacts to offer, to the best of their ability, detailed, wide ranging and up to date information.
We have answered a wide range of questions in order to address most key issues that arise for expats when they move. If you have an additional topic we have not covered please get in touch via e mail and we will consider adding the information to future updates.
Some of our authors offer personal relocation and orientation help – in which case this is mentioned in their eGuide. If the authors don’t offer these kinds of services themselves but can recommend a relocation professional they will this mentioned in their eGuide.
If we can’t recommend anyone, we are sorry, but you feel you need a relocation expert you will have to investigate if your company or any personal contacts might know someone – or search on line.
Yes, possibly. Please go to the “Be an Author” link and read our requirements. If you think you are suitable please complete & submit the application form. We’ll be in touch as soon as we can.
It’s also worth knowing that as some of our authors leave their locations(an inevitability of expat life!) we will be seeking replacements to take care of our updates. Therefore even if we have a guide in your location it may still be worth getting in touch.
If you have friends around the world who might be interested in writing up their location please suggest to them that they get in touch!
Yes we are planning a selection of travel and tourism eGuides for various countries and cities – watch this space!
This is an on-going survey which is found on our website.
We are asking expats all over the world to (anonymously) answer a selection of questions about the lifestyle in their location.
Once we have at least 25 respondents for any one location we make the compiled results freely available on our website for anyone to see. We hope that this information will aid people when they are considering a move. It should be useful to be able to understand what a variety of expats already living in the location think about the place.
Yes, please! We are will publish all the “Share and Compare Survey” results we get even for those cities where we don’t have guides yet!
Thanks, and it’s up to you – but it might be better to wait a few more months so that you have a good perspective to share with others. You could mark your diary to re visit us in 6 months?
Yes, please feel free to share your views on any locations where you have lived for at least 6 months over the last 5 years.
The more answers we have about any location the better.
No, sorry, we are not offering any incentives to take the survey. We hope that Expats will willingly take just a few minutes to help out their fellow expats – paying it forward – so to speak. And of course, next time you are planning a move you will know you will be able to check out the feedback we have about your potential new location…
No, anyone is welcome to see the survey results even if they have not filled in the survey.
But we would like to encourage as many people as possible to take a few minutes to take our survey.
