While all of the best VPN providers battle it out to get you business, the customer is actually the big winner as there are constantly ongoing discounts to be had – and even some freebies you can take advantage of if you're new to the world of VPN. We've done all the hard work and compiled a list of the most impressive deals you can find right now.

But this isn't only about the price, as we only recommend deals from VPN providers that we've actually tested and consider safe to use. Which is why ExpressVPN hangs in there. It may be a bit more expensive than others, but it still has a great offer as our #1 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, catch sports coverage not usually available in your country, or just remain anonymous while you surf online, you're bound to find the perfect VPN deal 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 they can still be purchased from anywhere.

FastestVPN | 3 years | $1.11 per month (opens in new tab)

FastestVPN | 3 years | $1.11 per month (opens in new tab)
FastestVPN has some of the most aggressive price-points around, and its current sale on a 3-year plan is one of the best offers we've seen. At just $1.11 per month, it also includes free cloud storage and a password manager. It's a shame however that in our testing we found below-average speeds, disappointing support, a thin privacy policy and a poor show on unblocking geo-restricted streaming.

CyberGhost | 2 years + 2 months FREE | $2.19 per month | 82% saving (opens in new tab)

CyberGhost | 2 years + 2 months FREE | $2.19 per month | 82% saving (opens in new tab)

IPVanish | 2 year | (opens in new tab)

IPVanish | 2 year | $10.99 $3.33 per month (opens in new tab)
While IPVanish isn't always regarded as the cheapest out there, the introductory offer on its one-year plan is actually pretty attractive at the moment. You pay just £44.99, which works out at $3.19 a month, and includes 3 months free. A bargain price on a provider with some of the fastest WireGuard connection speeds around.
