It's all very well reading our guide to the very best VPN providers, but in truth you probably just want to to know what the cheapest deals are - especially with Black Friday 2021 just around the corner.

That said, the VPN deal field is so hotly contested that there's pretty much always a big discount or handy freebie to take advantage of. So below is the curated list of the most impressive VPN deals you can get in the world at the moment.

For the most part, you just won't find a lot of these offers by going directly to the provider's website, you'll have to click through to them from this page.

But this isn't about solely the price and we only recommend deals from VPN providers that we really rate. Which is why ExpressVPN hangs in there - it may be a tad more expensive than others, but it still has a great offer on our #1 favorite VPN and with a really tempting freebie thrown in, too.

Whether you plan to use your VPN to protect your privacy, watch Netflix on holiday or remain anonymous while you surf online, you will find the perfect VPN offer for you in our list of bargain sales. And if you're located somewhere outside the US, don't let the $ signs put you off - that's just how most providers display their pricing, but can still be purchased from anywhere.
