Did you realise that it is possible to make huge savings on flight tickets with a VPN? Well let me tell you that it is. Along with enjoying some great deals on last minute flights or booking in advance, you can shave even more money off the cost. How? Read on to find out.
What determines the cost of flight tickets?
Have you ever stopped to think what determines the cost of flight tickets when you book them? Not many people do. However, when you make a search online one of the things is your location.
Yes, where you are actually located when using the internet to book tickets plays a big part in how much you have to pay.
Travel search websites and airlines know your location by your IP address. This is a set of numbers given to every device that connects to the internet by the server. Along with this, every country has a range of IP addresses (numbers), so when you visit a site your number determines where you are located.
Travel companies and comparison websites discriminate by location, so offer different prices based on your location at the time of booking. This is something you can use to your advantage and I am going to show you how you do so below using a VPN.
What is a VPN?
A VPN is a Virtual Private Network and it can be used for many reasons, with one being to make savings on flight tickets by hiding your location.
You connect to a server based in another country and that server provides you with an IP address from that country. When you visit a comparison site, it believes you are located in the country whose server you chose and this is how you can make savings.
How to save on flights using a VPN
Now let us look at the steps required to make those savings.
- First choose a VPN provider and there are plenty out there
- Sign up, download and install the software
- Find flights that you want using a comparison site without connecting to the VPN software and make a note of them and the price
- Now open up the VPN app and connect to a server based in a different country or state. It can help to choose a state or country with a low income or destination country
- Search for the flights again, this time connected to the VPN, and compare the prices
- You can complete the above steps as often as required by reconnecting to a different server to find the lowest prices and book them.
