Book travel online using a VPN

Online booking portals use IP address and location data of a user while determining the price of flight tickets and car rentals. For example, airplane tickets are cheaper when purchased in the country of origin.

When booking a trip online, vacation sites use cookies to track how many times a visitor comes to their particular site and how much time he spends. If he doesn`t book immediately, the same person might come back to a higher price in just a matter of minutes  the site has determined that he wants to book the flight anyway, so will accept a higher price. The trick then is to make it appear that you`re accessing the booking website from another country, the one where you can buy the same tickets at a lower price. The solution is to use a VPN (Virtual Private Network).

VPNs are services that provide you with an alternate gateway to access a website. When you use a VPN, your online booking requests are handled by a server located in some other country. This makes it appear that you`re making the request from another location. As a result, once you make a vacation website believe that you are situated in a place where the cost of tickets is lower, you automatically get a better deal. It is very easy to switch from one country to another by using a VPN, and it takes seconds.

At the same time, by using a VPN you will avoid being tracked by the booking website, as your IP location will be hidden. The website will not be able to play with your ticket price by making it more expensive if you visit the website twice or three times.

NordVPN  is one of the most user-friendly VPNs on the market. Their new Mac app is being rated as the easiest-to-use VPN app. 

Basically, when you create a NordVPN account, all you have to do is turn the ³ON² button, and the system selects the fastest server to connect to. If you need to connect to a specific country (as in the case of searching for cheaper tickets), you will see the list of all available countries to connect to. NordVPN currently has over 100 servers in 25 countries.

One NordVPN account can be used on up to six devices. In case users have questions, customer support is available 24/7.
