If you’re a Brit living abroad, missing your favourite newspaper or magazine can make you feel right out of the loop. Readly is the digital magazine subscription service that gives you access to over 5,000 magazines and newspapers from the UK and across the world.

Once you’ve got Readly, you have access to all your favourite magazines or newspapers for one monthly fee of €9,99 – a significant saving. Readly can be accessed by smartphone, tablet and online, meaning that wherever you are, you can enjoy your favourite reads. The texts adapt to the device you’re reading on, so the articles are always easy to access and read. Think of it as the Netflix for magazines and newspapers. You can read what you want, when you want! 

Even better - one subscription can be shared with up to five people - so while you’re indulging in your must-try recipes, your partner can read their favourite newspaper or check out old favourites from the impressive back-catalogue available. You can search across publications by keywords (for example “headphones”) and every magazine or newspaper with that word will appear. If you want to get really nerdy you can easily save everything you love to your favourites and create your own, bespoke reading list.

Whether you're into British Vogue or Horse and Hound, The Guardian or BBC Good Food - access them all through Readly. Get two months free Readly by clicking here if you're living in France and here for Spain

What's hot? 

Last year alone, over 140,000 editions of magazines have been read over 99 million times on Readly, on a huge variety of topics. For Brits abroad there are some clear favourites with British food, gadget advice, celebrity and entertainment news being some of the things that readers really seem to miss from back home. Nothing quite brings you closer to home than the food you know and love, and so perhaps it’s understandable that food related magazines would be in some of the top spots - with readers for instance flocking to the British number 1 food magazine, BBC Good Food. It’s not easy perfecting that Yorkshire pud!
