ExpressVPN price, deals and discounts: the best offers June 2024

ExpressVPN

My latest round of VPN testing saw ExpressVPN once again knock it out of the park and reiterate its place in my best VPN rankings. While more expensive than some cheaper VPN alternatives, and consequently not my number one pick, ExpressVPN justifies its larger price tag thanks to its stacked roster of tools and apps that are nice and easy to use.

VPNs that I recommend must put your privacy first—and ExpressVPN definitely delivers on this front. You're covered by an audited no-logs policy, have four VPN protocols to choose from, and it even features a solid kill switch that ensures you don't accidentally leak personal data. Plus, if you need a helping hand, 24/7 customer support is available via live chat.

While that is all great, one question still remains, how much does ExpressVPN cost? I'll walk you through the best deals available right now, and explain how opting for a long-term plan can save you some extra cash.

Recent updates

There haven't been any major changes to this page since my last update. This is, in part, because ExpressVPN doesn't switch its pricing around all that often. However, I have ensured that the article reflects my most recent VPN test results.

ExpressVPN is an exceptionally quick service (thanks to its very own Lightway protocol), comfortably keeping up with data-intensive tasks like HD streaming, online gaming, and torrenting without breaking a sweat. Speaking of streaming, my most recent testing showed ExpressVPN was able to access all of today's most popular services such as Netflix, BBC iPlayer, Amazon Prime, and more without encountering any blocks.

Keep reading, and I'll walk you through ExpressVPN's pricing plans and show you how TechRadar readers, like your good self, can save a little extra.

How much does ExpressVPN cost?

With only three plans available, ExpressVPN manages to keep things simple. You can choose from only a 1-month, 6-month, or 12-month subscription, which is more than enough for most suitors.

Head directly to the ExpressVPN site and they'll set you back $12.95 per month, $9.99 per month, and $8.32 per month respectively.

However, ExpressVPN has some stellar deals available to savvy shoppers—and readers of certain sites. TechRadar readers can save big on ExpressVPN's 12-month plan (and bag an extra 3 months of coverage) without having to sift through Google search results.

The pricing available then becomes:

  • 1-month: $12.95 per month
  • 6-months: $9.99 per month (billed $59.95 for the first six months)
  • 1-year: $6.67 per month (billed $99.95 for the first year)

As with most VPN subscriptions, 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.

And it keeps improving, as ExpressVPN has agreed to give TechRadar readers a year of free cloud storage from Backblaze ("comprehensive, no-limits, secure backup" as our ExpressVPN 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, ExpressVPN offers one of the best VPN free trials, which you can use to put it truly to the test, which you can read about more in our complete guide. It's also worth looking at the ExpressVPN promo codes currently available.

How good is ExpressVPN?

As I explain further in my ExpressVPN review this VPN is seriously impressive, spoiler alert! It got a whopping four and a half stars out of five.

The main concern of a VPN should always be the security of its users, and ExpressVPN goes the extra mile with security credentials that are second to none. The service has a battle-tested no-logs policy and regularly invites third-party auditors to inspect it—so you can rest assured that your privacy remains intact.

If you were weighing up VPNs for streaming, my latest round of testing showed Express VPN successfully unlocks services such as Netflix, BBC iPlayer, YouTube, and Amazon Prime Video content when overseas relatively painlessly. Its Chrome extension and apps for Android and iOS are also as excellent as the primary Windows and Mac clients.

One way in which ExpressVPN is set apart from its competition is its simplicity. Its apps provide an effective balance 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 it doesn't make it into our list of best cheap VPN providers guide. Although those extra three months free still certainly make 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 $2.29.

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 pretty 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.
