A money-back guarantee is similar to a free trial, but you need to pay for the duration of the subscription first and then claim a refund.
As the table above shows, price isn’t always an accurate indicator of quality within the VPN market.
That said, the best VPNs simply aren’t free. You should expect to pay a modest monthly fee to protect your privacy, security, and freedom online.
Based on the cheapest price for each of our top 15 VPNs, the average monthly cost of a VPN is $3.96. Paying for a month at a time, the average price rises to $11.32
To get the best deal on a VPN, you’ll almost always need to commit to at least a 12-month contract, and often payable up front.
Purchasing a VPN can therefore feel like quite an investment, so it’s worth doing your research.
Luckily, we’ve done the hard work for you. We regularly test and review over 68 VPN services, all listed in our VPN reviews section.
