If you keep track of VPN deals - as we do - then you'll know that discounts are available all year round. The offers are a percentage taken off the price of a subscription for a single month, so you'll always save big if you avoid those rolling one-month subscriptions.
However, go direct to the providers' websites or sign up through their apps and you won't get the best prices. That's because we've arranged special deals with them to get you bigger discounts.
One of the best deals is from Ivacy where you can save a massive 90%. This brings the cost down to only 75p per month. Don't be put off by the fact it's for five years because it's so cheap that it's no more expensive than much shorter subscriptions from its rivals.
You're probably already know why you want a VPN but just in case you're not fully up to speed, a VPN lets you unblock streaming services and other videos not available in the UK (or wherever you are) and also secures your Wi-Fi connection so is ideal when you're using open public wireless networks, such as in cafes, airports and hotels.
Using a VPN also gives you extra privacy online and offers protection when sending sensitive information to websites and services.
Best VPN deals
1. Ivacy five-year VPN subscription
Was: $597 ($9.95 per month)
Now: $60 - approx. £44.90 ($1 per month - approx 75p) (90% off)
Ivacy's current deal is one of the best around. It gives you 90% off the usual monthly price.
The offer is a five-year subscription for which you'll pay the equivalent of $1 per month, which is about 75p. That's an up-front payment of $60 (around £44.90) which is an absolute bargain.
Ivacy offers a great service which supports P2P downloads, unblocks streaming services (including Netflix and Disney+) and, like any VPN service, gives you security when using public Wi-Fi and privacy when browsing the web.
This is one the cheapest VPN deals around.
2. PureVPN five-year subscription
Was: $657 ($10.95 per month)
Now: $79 / £59 ($1.32 - approx 99p per month) (88% off)
PureVPN is currently offering 88% off the usual monthly price of $10.95 (approx. £8.40) which brings it down to just $1.32 per month (approx. £0.99).
As with all these deals, you pay for the full subscription up front – not monthly. But at $79, which is around £59, it’s an affordable way to get protection for your devices for a very long time to come.
You'll pay around the same amount for other two-year VPN deals (such as NordVPN's), so don't be put off by the fact it's a five-year subscription.
3. VyprVPN three-year subscription
Now: £47 (£1.30 per month) (89% off)
VyprVPN's 'Holiday Special' is still running. It's a three-year subscription with 89% off the normal monthly price, which means an up-front payment of £47 instead of £466.20 for a two-year subscription. That's just £1.30 per month.
If you're wondering why you should choose VyprVPN: it owns and manages all of its servers, and is a great choice if your priorities are security and privacy.
Also, as a bonus, the subscription lets you use up to 30 devices on the same account. That's a lot more than the typical 3-6 devices.

4. Private Internet Access three-year subscription
From: Private Internet Access
Now: £65 (£1.81 per month) (82% off)
5. Surfshark two-year subscription
Now: £43.97 (£1.83 per month) (81% off)
Sign up for a two-year subscription of this great VPN to get it for just £1.83 per month.
Surfshark is one of the best-value VPN services and is one of the few which doesn't put a limit on the number of devices you can use with it at the same time.
6. CyberGhost VPN three-year subscription
Now: £77.61 (£1.99 per month) (82% off)
CyberGhost is a superb VPN service and its latest offer gets you 82% off the regular monthly price which makes it £1.99 per month.
Best of all, you also get three months on top of the three-year subscription: a total of 39 months' protection.
You'll find CyberGhost in our round-up of the best VPNs.
7. Express VPN one-year subscription (3 months free)
Now: £76.23 (£6.35 per month) (49% off)
Get 49% off ExpressVPN, which is one of our favourite VPNs.
When you click through to the deal, the £5.06 per month figure is the average cost when spread over 15 months. But if you consider the final three months to be free, the actual monthly cost for the first 12 months is £6.35.
It's a cheeky way of making the price look lower, but as we said, this is still one of the best VPN services out there.
8. Hidden24 VPN three-month subscription
Now: £9.99 total for 3 months with code idg1709
Get Hidden24 VPN for just £3.33 per month for 3 months using the exclusive code idg1709.
VPN deals: What to look for
A VPN (Virtual Private Network) is designed to keep you safe from prying eyes online by preventing websites from knowing your true location and, to some extent, your identity. VPNs don't make you anonymous if your activity reveals who you are, such as logging into a website.
However, the technology can help protect your identity and sensitive information, particularly on public Wi-Fi networks. A VPN can also allow you to access blocked content. This can include BBC iPlayer when you’re travelling outside the UK, as well as Netflix in other regions like the US.
VPNs are subscription services, and the more time you commit the more it reduces the price.
Plans also tend to allow you to use the service on more than one device, including a PC, Mac and mobile devices.
We have plenty of guides to help you find out everything you need to know about using a VPN. You can take a look at our favourites in our best VPN round-up, find one that'll let you access US Netflix in our round-up of the best Netflix VPNs, or simply find out how to use a VPN here.
