by AlbBnb

KAYAK, the world’s leading travel search engine, reveals their first Work from Wherever Index with best countries in the world to work remotely from. Albania took 15th place among 111 countries globally and landed on the 9th place in the European ranking.

KAYAK’s first Work from Wherever Index is the ultimate source for those looking to set up a new office away from home temporarily or for a longer period of time. To develop the index, KAYAK closely analyzed 111 countries and ranked each against 22 factors across six categories: travel costs and accessibility; local prices; health & safety; remote working capabilities; social life; and weather. Ultimately, revealing the best countries that are easiest to work from while having a lot of fun in your off-hours.

Albania took 15th position in the global index and climbed quite high among European destinations taking 9th spot. In the big worldwide competition it has overtaken Thailand, Georgia, Estonia, Mexico and many other countries. Albania performs well in such categories as ‘Travel and Local prices’ as it has one of the lowest hotel prices in the world, affordable cost of living and low long and short-term apartment rates. Also, this country offers digital nomad visas for those who are looking to stay there longer.

The factors presented are in the original data values but the total score and category scores are presented on a 1-100 scale, with 100 being the best (or cheapest), based on the normalization calculations. For more info please see the full Methodology.

All sources have been accessed and data retrieved between 1 September – 20 October 2021. The numbers collected are based on the latest available data.

The top 10 best countries for combining productive working conditions and opportunities for travel adventures according to KAYAK are: 

  1. Portugal
  2. Spain
  3. Romania
  4. Mauritius
  5. Japan
  6. Malta
  7. Costa Rica
  8. Panama
  9. Czech Republic
  10. Germany

Portugal was ranked the all-round best country to work remotely from worldwide, scoring 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. Spain came in 2nd place, largely due to its high quantity of restaurants and cafes per capita, paired with fast internet speed, plenty of co-working spaces and remote visas for freelancers. It also has a buzzing nightlife and is very LGBTQ+ friendly. Romania rounds up the top 3rd place, primarily because it offers very attractive prices when it comes to long-term apartment rentals and local food.
