We are well aware of the security benefits offered by a VPN (Virtual Private Network). But did you know that it can help you save hundreds of dollars as well? Yes, apart from making browsing safer, VPN also helps you save a lot of money. To understand how, let’s start with this comprehensive VPN guide for beginners.
Save Money on Flight Tickets
The price of flights tickets vary greatly. For instance, flight ticket prices differ based on the country from where you book the tickets. Again say you visit an airline company and decide not to buy the tickets. The next time you visit again, you will see the prices shoot up. This is because most airline companies offer higher prices for return customers especially who have not bought ticket during their previous visit (it’s all in the algorithm).
How do they know of you are a return customer, especially if you were buying the tickets online? The algorithms track the IP address and offer the most suitable prices. The same thing happens when you book a ticket from Europe and from America.
By using a VPN you can choose an IP address of a country for which the prices are the lowest. Or you can change your IP address the next time you visit the airline website to book the tickets and pose as a first time buyer to help you save money on travel.
Cheaper Car Rental
The car rental rates vary based on the country as well. Check the rates from various countries and choose the one that has the lowest rates. Change the IP address accordingly using a VPN and enjoy the low rates. To save more, choose a less famous car rental company that offers cheaper base rates.
Save on Software Subscriptions
Whether you are a business owner or an individual, you need to subscribe to a number of software programs. The subscription rates also differ greatly depending upon the company you choose and the location from where you subscription. So compare the rates from various different countries and choose the IP address accordingly, just as in case of the car rental or flight ticket booking.
Watch Your Favorite Movies without Spending a Lot
Media streaming companies also offer different prices to viewer from different countries. If you want to save money for watching your favorite movies or streaming media, using a VPN is a must. Moreover, many countries restrict their people from watching specific content. For instance, you may not be able to access Netflix from China. So by using a VPN you can not only watch your favorite shows for a lower price but can also access restricted content.
You can benefit from a VPN in more ways than you can think. So why just make browsing safer, use a VPN to save as much money as possible. Whether you are buying items online or booking flight tickets, make sure you use a VPN to get the lowest possible prices. Browse safely, save money and make life easier!
