I totally agree. I use to subscribe may years ago and just did again yaz it came to me via Facebook and the fact that I am looking at Portugal.

The new way they preset themselves online is very sophisticated in oder to mislead you and take more money out of your pocket. Just ignore them and Google.

No guidance

The international living gives no direction or guidance for anyone who is interested in living abroad. No one to contact or anyone to contact for information on what a person has to do to make the move. I am cancelling my subscription.

International Living is really a scam and an awful value even if you got it for $39 (1 year), almost half of their regularly advertised price. There is absolutely no value or substance in anything they write. What's worse they print stories that are...

Pass on my experiences about magazine and website

Have had a subscription for probably 10 years. Always look forward to the magazine articles. I realize they push their seminars, etc but have provided a great deal of travel information referring to places I would not be aware of such as Puerto Armeulles Panama, etc. I think the magazine is good value. BGH

User's recommendation: Have referred it to many of my friends. They are still friends:).

International Living gave us a start to Belize

We did not want to retire in Arizona, Florida or Texas. I am a SCUBA diver. International Living pointed us to Belize. We now own a condo. We are quite happy

It's just a mechanism to get you to buy more....

Do NOT subscribe to International Living Magazine. It's just one great big advertisement for other companies. They tease you with videos, articles, and email postcards without giving you the needed information. After reading the article or listening to the video, they don't ever tell you the end of the story; you have to subscribe to some other periodical, service, or workshop/seminar to get the "secret" information. Save your money and your frustration and do not subscribe to this periodical which is no more than an infomercial.

User's recommendation: Do not subscribe.

I have had frustration with International Living emails as they always turn into a long winded informercial ending with a requirement that I subscribe to obtain true secrets.

Belize email address isn't working

Hi there, I'm currently attempting to connect with Lora/Laura who's your agent in Belize after watching one of her videos. However, despite many attempts I keep receiving this message: Delivery incomplete There was a temporary problem while delivering your message to belize@***.com. Gmail will retry for 21 more hours. You'll be notified if the delivery fails permanently. LEARN MORE The response was: The recipient server did not accept our requests to connect. Can you please advise or assist? Yours faithfully MV James

User's recommendation: International Living could supply an email address that's easier to locate on the website.

Mysterious charge to my credidt card, unable to contact sustomer service by phone. No phone option for person to person contact, and options are limited.

Nobody ever answers the listed US phone number. Might as well delete it. I'll continue trying to determine why they charged my credit card $104.54l -- I have no idea. I suppose I'll learn more if I'm ever able to contact them.

User's recommendation: Careful!! Always do your due diligence and research a company with no reachable customer service phone!

Cannot get hold of anyone and won't reply to emails!

I have received a notice in mail (took 6 weeks) saying they were going to charge my Visa card for another year's subscription. I do not use Visa card for overseas transactions and they will not reply to email. Have tried Australian phone number several times and they will not answer! They are nothing but a rort. All they want to is to sell you something, most of which is not applicable here in Australia.

User's recommendation: Avoid!

Dear Linda, I emailed you today, as I have been out of the office for a month and noted that we emailed you on more than one occasion since July. We emailed you 27th, 29th and 31st and again in August.

This note is from August 12th so I'm not sure what has happened with your email? We received your query through the CS portal on the website and we responded to you. Maybe you can add International living as a trusted emailer to ensure the emails land in your inbox? If you have any further queries i am happy to assist you can reply to the email i sent you this morning.

Thank you for being a loyal customer of International Living. Kind regards Helen Daly CS Manager @ International Living & GEP
