Medicare will not accept claims. The SCAM is that they do not tell you about Health Care Insurance. Health insurance can run up to $20,000 per person. Good luck trying to contact Customer Service. Their 'membership' is automatically renewable. They are not objective regarding places to retire. They promote retiring to countries with significant problems. They do not publish the complaint letters to the degree that they publish glowing reviews....

international living provides you with info, but it is all based on what happened. I joined since then i haven't got any new info, its all about upselling, and nothing more. Provide updated info, and stop trying to genererate sales by focusing on Existing customers. Yes you told us about Panama but that was so 4 years ago. Equador, pshhht it is not a bargain anymore . You charge for a subscription, maybe provide information that is relevant. I...

I have been following IL for over 8 years now. I attended the last conference in Las Vegas a few months ago. I think the consumers who have complained about the magazine subscriptions and/or the emails they receive are being unfair. You have to subscribe to get them. I have canceled a few times in the last year and never had a problem with them. I do think people need to be aware that IL's info is really for people who are retired or have money....

International Living subscription Review

International Living continued to bill my credit card after confirming my cancellation of the magazine. They claimed I was still committed to a renewal of their newsletter and because I disputed the charges with my credit card company they could not assist me in correcting their mistake (scam) to continue to bill me. Do your self a favor do not order this bogus magazine.

As part of my research about Mexico I ordered two subscriptions from IL, both of which came with Jackie's usual "no questions asked" refund policy. In the meantime I learned that my income does not qualify me to move to Mexico so I requested a refund. It should have given me a hint that there isn't even a menu item to claim a refund. I have now sent three requests over the passed few weeks and still no response from IL. I would not trust them...

Gary Jones It took some time and certainly wasn't the promised "no questions asked" refund but eventually they did a refund.

I have been trying to cancel my subscription for 3 years. Never happened. Disputed the charge with my bank. IL lied and said that they had proof of a valid subscription. Didn't win that one either. NEVER, EVER get a subscription with these thieves. So I find out that I need at least 100 words here. So, even the "information" in the magazine is a lie. They are paid by the countries that they tout. Read other reviews to see how expats faired using...

I worked for International Living many years ago and at that time it was a TOTAL scam. The pretense then (as now) is that the articles are contributed by retirees living the high life. In reality it was entirely written by college students who visited local libraries and re-wrote articles from travel magazines. I suspect that the only thing that's changed is that the college students are now using Google instead of Enoch Pratt.

I have been a subscriber for many years now. I have had very little problems and I NEVER had an issue that I couldn't call and talk to someone about. The information I have ordered and received has fueled my desire to move to a more affordable country. I wouldn't have known most of what I do without reading the materials I got from IL and the stories that the readers have sent in about their moves to the various countries they moved to. I...

We've been subscribers for several years and really enjoy the magazine, in particular the stories of other expats, their experiences in relocating to other countries, how they make money, start businesses etc. We consider it a small price to pay to stay inspired and constantly fed by new, creative ways to live affordably and see other parts of the world. I think anyone who is considering a move overseas needs to take responsibility for...

I have a beach house on the Pacific Coast of Nicaragua, which i would like to advertise for sale. But despite going through your website several times, all.i get is to subscribe. It would be nice just to advertise. I am already familiar with your magazine. I just want my house sold. Great place...across from the waves. I am 74 years old, and need to get back to the States. Please send me an email with prices to advertise in IL. Thanks.
