Many people look at VPNs as a simple security tool. VPNs are a way to help keep your secure and private online. Or to help bypass censorship. But VPNs have a much wider use case than that, and in this blog today, we are going to be looking at just one of those other use cases. Here is how you can use a VPN to get the best regional Black Friday/Cyber Monday prices available.
How does it work exactly?
When you connect to a VPN server in a different country, it makes it appear as though you are accessing the internet from that location. This can be used not only for things like bypassing censorship. But also, to help take advantage of regional pricing.
Flights and hotels, for example, can be had for cheaper depending on where you look to purchase from. Airlines can tailor the pricing based on your location and currency. But by using a VPN, you can help bypass this pricing and get cheaper options. For instance, looking for a flight from London to Singapore whilst accessing the airline website from one of those countries will often see the prices rise. But, by accessing from a completely different location, prices can drop. Usually, lower-income countries are a good place to start, but the best results can be completely random.
A similar trick can be made when looking for hotels, though you may find that connecting to a VPN server closest to your location may yield better results.
Of course, in COVID-19 times, flights and hotels aren’t really viable but this doesn’t just apply to flights and hotels. Keep an eye on our blog to see the Top 5 Tech Things You Can Buy Cheaper With a VPN.
