ExpressVPN price: what is today's best deal?

ExpressVPN | 1 year | (opens in new tab)

ExpressVPN | 1 year | $12.95 $6.67/per month + 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.

How much does ExpressVPN cost?

ExpressVPN keeps things pretty straightforward. There are three plans to choose from, with one-month, six-month and annual plans available. If you were to go directly to the ExpressVPN website, they would cost you $12.95 per month, $9.99 per month $8.32 per month respectively.

But — and it's a big, pleasing 'but' - ExpressVPN makes other, better pricing available to readers of certain websites. Meaning that if you click through from this link (opens in new tab) on TechRadar instead of heading back to Google and searching for the provider there, you'll be privy to a better ExpressVPN price for its 12-month contract thanks to that extra 3-month bonus.

The pricing available then becomes:

Obviously, the value improves exponentially as you commit to a longer subscription — you'll get the equivalent of virtually half off if you grab an annual sub compared to a series of one-month periods.

And don't forget...the 'one year' price is actually 15 months of the service — as explained above — thanks to ExpressVPN's current 'three months free' promotion (opens in new tab).

And it keeps getting better, now that Express has agreed to give TechRadar readers a year of free cloud storage from Backblaze ("comprehensive, no-limits, secure backup" as our review says). That's a whole year of absolutely unlimited secure storage for all your files, photos, tunes, videos and more.

If you're still unsure, there are ExpressVPN free trial options to look into, which you can read about more in our full guide.

How good is ExpressVPN?

A brief look at our ExpressVPN review will tell you, but spoiler alert! We've given it the full five stars out of five.

The reasons are multitudinous - hence our 2,000+ word review! As we've said, the service's security credentials are second to none, making it an obvious first choice if privacy is your primary concern.

If you were weighing up VPNs for streaming, our testing found that it successfully unlocks watching the likes of Netflix, BBC iPlayer, YouTube and Amazon Prime Video content when overseas and relatively painlessly. While its Chrome extension and apps for Android and iOS are as excellent as the main Windows and Mac clients.

It also toes the line nicely between basic use for inexperienced users, and added features for people who want that bit extra from their VPN.

How do ExpressVPN prices compare to the competition?

ExpressVPN is reassuringly expensive compared to the other big services out there - it makes complete sense that the undisputed best service out there is also the least affordable - and so doesn't make it into our list of best cheap VPN providers guide. Although those extra three months free still certainly makes it competitive.

If cost is your greatest concern, then you're probably better off looking at Surfshark. It's still a top quality VPN, but can be obtained for a lower cost if you're comfortable signing up for a full two years. In fact, the effective monthly cost comes in at less than $2.50/£2.50.

And if you've heard of NordVPN and want to know how that compares, it again is cheaper than ExpressVPN - as long as you're happy to commit for a while. The one month and one year plans are quite similar, but Nord really starts looking attractive if you sign up for multiple years - right now the effective monthly cost is less than $3.50 if you subscribe for three years.
