ExpressVPN: 49% off 1-year plan + 3 months free + free cloud backup — just $6.67 or  £5.27 per month
There’s a reason why ExpressVPN tops our list of best services. From its large number of servers offering wicked-fast connections despite its global reach, to its incredible accessibility for users, this is a top choice. Plus, with this special offer, you get far more than you would expect with free cloud backup storage (courtesy of Backblaze).

NordVPN deals

NordVPN: Up to 72% off 2-year plan — just $3.29 or £2.49 per month

NordVPN: Up to 72% off 2-year plan — just $3.29 or £2.49 per month
NordVPN at this price is a great value. It delivers more  servers and pure speed than the competition, and it has 256-bit AES encryption if you want that additional security peace of mind. NordVPN is a properly premium product, but right now it's remarkably affordable. Be aware, though, that once you click on this offer, you’ve got 10 hours to claim it before the price disappears for your IP address.

SurfShark deals

Surfshark: Up to 83% off a 2-year plan + 2 months free — just $2.49 or £1.85 per month

Surfshark: Up to 83% off a 2-year plan + 2 months free — just $2.49 or £1.85 per month
Surfshark is super easy to use, and works across unlimited simultaneous devices — meaning the whole family can take advantage of international Netflix libraries across the planet. With this special offer, you’re getting a couple of bonus months on top of your full two-year plan.

CyberGhost deals

CyberGhost: 82% off 3-year plan + 3 months free — just $2.29 or £1.75 per month

CyberGhost: 82% off 3-year plan + 3 months free — just $2.29 or £1.75 per month
This is the optimal choice for streaming and torrenting, and the cheapest option on this list. If you’re willing to go all in on a three-year plan, these prices are insanely good for what you get: fast servers optimized for live streaming and a huge selection of locations.

ProtonVPN deals

ProtonVPN: 33% off 2-year plan — just $6.63 or €6.63 per month

ProtonVPN: 33% off 2-year plan — just $6.63 or €6.63 per month
If you need a service more focussed on security, this is the one for you. Sure, it doesn’t have the large variety of locations and fast speeds that make the aforementioned options streamer-friendly. But ProtonVPN sports a ‘SecureCore’ network that passes your connection through Switzerland and Iceland to keep your IP uncompromised.
