Best VPN Deals
Boost your privacy and security with a VPN. These are the best VPN deals on at the moment:
Top 10 VPN Deals
FastestVPN Lifetime plan
Unlike most VPN deals which are subscriptions for a set number of years, FastestVPN’s is for a lifetime subscription. We asked the company exactly what that meant and were told “we will never terminate their accounts”.
And for just $20 – around £15 – that’s unbeatable.
Plus, you’ll get a year’s cloud storage thrown in – 2TB with Internxt – and a password manager.
FastestVPN isn’t the best VPN service around, and it’s not the fastest either. It has far fewer locations and servers than most. When we tested it, speeds were good over IKEv2, but terrible over OpenVPN, which is what you need to use to unblock services such Netflix and Disney+ in the US.
Ivacy five-year VPN subscription
Was: $597 / £517.20
$60 / £52.08
Ivacy’s deal is one of the best around, knocking a whopping 90% off the usual monthly price. It’s a five-year subscription that works out at $1 per month, or 80p if you’re in the UK. The up-front payment of $60 / £52.08 is a real bargain, as that’s what most VPN services charge for two years, or even one year.
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. You can use it on up to 10 devices at the same time, but even if you use it only on one or two, it’s still one the cheapest VPN deals around.
PureVPN two-year subscription
Was: $657 ($10.95/mo)
PureVPN’s deal is for a five-year subscription that will cost you $74.95 (around £62).
That’s $1.24 per month, which is a great price.
As with all the deals here (and with all VPN subscriptions longer than a month), you pay for the full subscription up front – not per month.
Surfshark two-year subscription
Was: $310.80 / £324
65.06 / £59.50
Surfshark is offering 82% off its usual monthly price if you opt for its two-year subscription.
It’s a good deal overall, even if the two ‘free’ months aren’t actually free at all. The UK price above includes VAT, which is why it’s higher than the price you’ll initially see on Surfshark’s website.
Buyers in the US will also have to pay local taxes.
However, Surfshark is a top VPN service, which doesn’t put a limit on the number of devices you can connect to the service at the same time. Just note that it doesn’t unblock BBC iPlayer.
Private Internet Access two-year subscription
From: Private Internet Access
Was: $454.10 / £389.61
$56.94 / £43.94
Private Internet Access is offering four free months on top of its two-year subscription. The monthly price shown on PIA’s site counts those extra ‘free’ months not as free but as paid, though your subscription will last for 28 months instead of 24. It’s just a cheeky way of making the monthly price look cheaper than it really is. But it’s a good deal overall for this trusted service: it’s one of few VPN services that have made the source code for its apps public so it can be scrutinised.Read our full PIA review for more details.
CyberGhost two-year subscription
Was: $337.74 / £313.63
$56.94 / £49.92
CyberGhost is a great VPN service and is currently offering a two-year subscription with four months free at the end
As with its rivals here, it uses those extra months in its calculations to make the monthly price seem cheaper. Look past this, and it’s a good deal for a good VPN service.
Also beware: the renewal price remains the same
, but only lasts for a year, making it more than twice as expensive, so be sure to cancel before it renews.
CyberGhost is great for unblocking streaming services, so if that’s what you want a VPN for, it should be a tempting deal.
You’ll find CyberGhost in our roundup of the best VPN services.
NordVPN two-year subscription
Was: $223.83 / £177.93
$87.89 / £80.68 (inc VAT)
NordVPN’s deal gets you two years and three months’ access to this top VPN service.
It is by no means the cheapest (it’s still cheaper than ExpressVPN though!) but because it is one of the best all-round VPN services out there, it’s arguably worth paying more for.
However, if you’re happy to compromise on features and speeds, you can get a similar length subscription from several other VPN services here for less than half the price NordVPN charges. That’s why NordVPN’s deal features fairly low down our list.
The reason NordVPN’s discount appears lower than its rivals is not because it’s more expensive, but because
it bases its discount off the renewal price, not the one-month subscription price.
(20% / 44% off)
Hidden24 is a VPN service with a difference: it doesn’t require an app. It will suit anyone wanting a VPN for absolute privacy as it logs precisely nothing.
Your device will need to support a VPN connection natively, but Windows, Android, iOS and macOS all do.
Hidden24 is also a great option if you don’t want to sign up for a long time: it’s around half the cost of its rivals if you just need a VPN for a month.
Express VPN one-year subscription (3 months free)
Was: $194.20/£148.18 ($12.95/£9.88 a month)
$99.95/£76.27 ($8.33/£6.35 a month for 12 months)
Get 49% off ExpressVPN, which is one of our favourite VPNs.
When you click through to the deal, the monthly cost you see is the average cost when spread over 15 months. But if you consider the final three months to be free (as per the offer), the actual monthly cost for the first 12 months is the price you see above.
Like others here which play a similar trick, it’s a sneaky way of making the price look lower, but as you’ll see in our review, this is still a great VPN service.

Best Antivirus Deals
We’re covering the best antivirus deals our
Best Antivirus Deals article, but you can see the highlights below:
Top 10 Antivirus Deals
Norton 360 Deluxe – 1 Year, 5 Devices
Was: $104.99 / £84.99
$49.99 / £19.99
($55 / £65 off)
Norton is one of our top antivirus picks, so it’s good news that you can get the first 12 months for only $49.99. In the UK, that’s just £19.99 until 5 January.
After that, the first-year price goes up by £10, but that still saves you £55
off the usual price.
And speaking of that, do note that the renewal price is $104.99/£84.99 after that first year.There’s also the option of a two-year subscription and get two years for $89.99/£89.99 ($44.99/£44.99 a year) which sounds like a worse deal, but don’t forget you’re getting a discount on both years, not just the first, so it is cheaper overall.
Read our review: Norton 360 Deluxe review
Trend Micro Internet Security – 1 Year, 3 Devices
From: Trend Micro
Was: $79.95 / £49.95
$29.95 / £19.95
(62% / 60% off)
Trend Micro’s online protection for up to three devices is 60% off the first year for those in the UK and there’s a slightly higher 62% discount if you’re in the US (get the deal here).
In AV-Test’s latest report, Trend Micro earns maximum points for protection, usability and performance, making this not just an affordable deal, but top-notch protection as well.
McAfee Total Protection – 2 Years, 5 Devices
Was: $159.99 / £159.99
$69.99 / £69.99
($90 / £90 off)
McAfee’s current deals allow you to get a discounted subscription for either one or two years, and for five or 10 devices.You can pick which deal you want on the website, but we’ve listed the price for the two-year, five-device deal. You can use the software on laptops, phones, Macs and any other supported device. It you were to go for the 10-device deal and use all the licenses, you’ll be paying just $3.99 / £3.99 per device for each year of this two-year deal.Usually, only the first year is discounted and there’s no option to get that price for two years.
Panda Dome Essential – 1 Year, 1 Device
From: Panda Security
Panda Dome Essentials includes top-rated antivirus protection, plus a VPN (albeit with only 150MB of data to use per day).
Right now, there’s 40% off, and this applies not just on the Essential plan but also on Advanced, Complete and Premium.
Bitdefender Total Security – 1 Year, 5 Devices
Was: $94.99 / £74.99
$34.98 / £29.99
(63% / 60% off)
Bitdefender is consistently rated as one of the best options for protecting your Windows, macOS, iOS and Android devices, and this deal allows you to use your subscription on five computers, phones or tablets.
It’s rated Advanced+ (the top score) by AV-Comparatives and gives you excellent anti-malware protection against the latest threats.
This deal gives you money off for the first year and after that the price charged will be the original price shown above.
Avast One – 1 Year, 5 Devices
Was: $99.99 / £79.99
$39.99 / £31.99
Avast’s One security suite is fantastic. Not only does it provide excellent protection, it has a welcoming, fresh interface that’s easy to understand and use.
Better still, Avast One Essential is free, which is the best price of all.
However, the Essential package (as opposed to the fully featured Avast One) does come with a few limitations such as not being able to choose a country when using the VPN service and no email monitoring for ID protection.
Those are unlocked along with other advanced features when you pay for Avast One, and this deal means you pay considerably less than full price for the first year.
