So, the chance to save half off a $3,000 purchase is definitely something worth grabbing, especially when browsing the web only requires a few extra clicks.

This vacationer did just that, halving their rental car fees by using a VPN.

VPN stands for Virtual Private Network and allows people to surf online as if they are in a different country since where you shop can make a big difference in how much you charge.

In an article for the Manchester Evening News, they said: “When we first started figuring out how much it would cost to hire a car in Florida for two weeks we were horrified to find it was over £3,000.

“My mother-in-law found a deal for exactly what we wanted for £1,449. She sent us the name of the car rental company and we went online to book. Unless we put the same dates and car type on the page we got a price of £3,248.

“We found the only difference was that their price was in dollars, we accessed the site through a VPN – and suddenly we too were offered the exact same car after you converted the price to pounds, less than half the price.”

Not only the tourist has recommended using a VPN to reduce holiday search costs. Flight fees are also sometimes reduced if you surf like you are abroad.

A Tiktok user Yan, or kingcredit, has shared how he uses VPNs to save money when booking flights online.

He shared his methods in a video to help others learn from his example.

Another online tip Yan recommends to keep prices down is to use incognito mode when booking flights.

He said airlines “automatically raise their prices” when they see you repeatedly searching for tickets to the same destination.

Therefore, by using incognito mode, airline websites cannot store any of your information and respond to your searches.

VPNs also have Black Friday deals this year, including ExpressVPN, NordVPN, and Surfshark.

Meanwhile, the date and time you both fly and book flights can affect how much you end up paying.

And the consumer expert explained how he saves money when booking a holiday.
