Frequently Asked Questions

Can I trust the answers in Questions & Answers?

The Best Places in the World to Retire Questions & Answers was designed to be as trustworthy as any source could be. We do this in three ways:

  1. We get a diversity of opinion.  Multiple people can answer the same question, and anyone can answer in any way he or she pleases.  Best Places does not edit, change, or remove answers, consistent with our Conditions of Use policy.
  2. The Community votes on the quality of each answer.  That way, the “best” answers tend to go to the top. (Please keep in mind, however, that “best” is a subjective term, and some very good and accurate answers may not get as many votes.)
  3. No one is in the process of selling you something with their answer. (Contrast this to sites that give answers in the process of trying to get you to make a purchase.)  On the Best Places site, lots of diverse people answer questions.  Some don’t represent any company whatsoever, some represent a non-profit and some represent a more traditional company.  Everyone’s answer, including those of vendors, can be valuable to you, and we recommend that you read them all.  (In fact, our experience has been that vendors provide some of the best and most accurate answers.)  For every question a vendor answers, you’ll see his or her name and company name, so you know who they are and go to their profile, but, in keeping with the non-commercial status of Community Q & A, no vendor contact information is allowed in this area.  If you want to contact someone representing an organization (and we hope you will, to repay the vendor’s kindness in answering questions honestly), you can contact vendors directly in their Marketplace listing.
