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.

Luckily, because the VPN deal field is so hotly contested, 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.

And 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, catch sports coverage not usually available in your country, 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.

VPN deals: top 3 offers you can get today

1. Surfshark | 2 years + 2 months free | $12.95 $2.30 per month | 82% off + FREE antivirus (opens in new tab)
Surfshark (opens in new tab) tops our list thanks to its eye-catching combo of super reasonable pricing (it's an easy pick at the top of our best cheap VPN (opens in new tab) chart) and excellent quality.

Already one of the most affordable premium VPNs on the market, it then throws in an extra two months extra free to make it even more of a bargain. Plus, for a limited time, you'll also get a free upgrade to its Surfshark One antivirus package as well.

2. NordVPN | 2 years | $11.99 $3.29 per month | 60% (opens in new tab)
The biggest name in the VPN game goes big on discounts with its multi-year plan. Sign up to NordVPN (opens in new tab)'s excellent service for the next two years and it will slash the monthly cost to a very attractive sub-$3.50. It's a fantastic price point for such an impressive bit of software, and now includes Nord's Threat Protection feature that helps block trackers and prevent malware.

3. PIA | 2 years + 2 months free | $11.95 $2.19 per month | 82% saving (opens in new tab)
Private Internet Access (opens in new tab) boasts a huge 10k+ server count and is improving its UX and feature list all the time. And it just got really competitive with its savings, too. Yes, it now manages to undercut Surfshark and NordVPN on pure price, but we're putting it at a close 3rd here as it can't quite compete when it comes to speeds and geo-unblocking. 

VPN deals: best of the rest

ExpressVPN | 1 year | $12.95 $6.67/pm + 3 months FREE (opens in new tab)
TechRadar's #1 trusted VPN for privacy and unblocking content worldwide. Get it today with a no-hassle 30-day money-back guarantee, 15 months for the price of 12 AND a whole year of unlimited cloud backup from Backblaze, too! Fantastic value on a fantastic pair of products. VPN | 2 months | $9.95
(opens in new tab)
Throwing your hat in with one VPN provider for a year or more won't suit everybody, and that's what makes this (opens in new tab) deal so eye-catching. As part of its Summer sale, you can currently sign up for 60 days of the service for less than $10. Plus, is bundling in 2TB of encrypted cloud storage for FREE as an extra tempter.

PureVPN | 2 years + 3 months free | $10.95 $1.69 a month | Code 'tech15' (opens in new tab)
PureVPN may not be the most impressive VPN out there - coming up short of the quality offered by the likes of NordVPN and ExpressVPN - but its prices certainly catch the eye. Using discount code tech15, you can currently get an extra 15% off its two-year plan (plus three months), bringing it down to essentially $1.69 a month, paying $45 for the 27 months.

CyberGhost | 40 months | $2.23 per month | 83% saving (opens in new tab)
CyberGhost (opens in new tab) becomes a really affordable VPN if you're happy to put your eggs in its security basket for three years. Sign up for 36 months and it will chuck in an extra three for free, meaning that the effective cost comes down to a rather spectacular $2.23 / £1.70 per month.

Hotspot Shield | 3 years | $2.49 per month | 75% off (opens in new tab)
Hotspot Shield (opens in new tab) is already one of the fastest VPNs (opens in new tab) around, easy to use and has a great track record of unlocking streaming services. But the news gets even better when you hear that the provider is giving TechRadar readers an exclusive discount, with an effective monthly cost of only $2.49 on its long term plan.

IPVanish | 1 year | $10.99 $3.75 per month (opens in new tab)
While IPVanish (opens in new tab) 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 $3.75 a month. A bargain price on a provider with some of the fastest WireGuard (opens in new tab) connection speeds around.

FastestVPN | 3 years | From $15 per month (opens in new tab)
FastestVPN (opens in new tab) has some of the most aggressive price-points around, and its current birthday sale is one of the most unusual offers we've seen. It's currently working on a Pay What You Want basis (starting from $15 for three years) and also includes free cloud storage and password manager. It's a shame then that in our testing we found below average speeds, disappointing support, a thin privacy policy and a poor show on unblocking geo-restricted streaming.
