Each week we will post some type of tutorial, tips or guide that will improve your experience when using a VPN.
How to get cheaper flights by using a VPN
1. Ensure you are using a fresh session.
You can find more about my personal security setup in the footer information in the the Best Practices guide I wrote which are available at: https://www.privateinternetaccess.com/helpdesk/kb/articles/security-best-practices
2. Use the destination country.
There are 2 possible ways to secure a discount that I am aware of. I have heard that some VPN customers select a low income country as the VPN server choice, but I am unaware of the actual effectiveness.
The method that I utilise is using the destination country (so if I was flying from the UK to the US, I would choose a US server).
And because pictures paint a thousand words, this was my result for a flight using Expedia from the UK, 1 Adult, Business Class, September 11 till September 15:
This is for the exact same plane, same date and same parameters. The only difference was that I used PIA to connect to the destination country in the second example, dropping the price from £5093 to £1676, a savings of over 67%!
So, next time you are planning a trip, make sure follow these steps to get a massive discount on your airfare and when you do – let us know in the comments below!
