Save money on car rentals by using a VPN

We’ve already talked on this blog about the ability to get money off travel tickets by using a VPN – but did you know that you can save money on car rentals too?

Like many providers of travel services, car rental companies sometimes practice price discrimination. That means that they offer preferential prices based on the location from which users are accessing their site.

For instance, let’s say you have booked flights to America, and you’re planning to do a road trip while you’re there. You access a car rental website, and you’re given a price for a rental of a particular car.

This seems fair. But what you don’t know is that someone access the site from within America is being offered a far better price than you.

So how do you get around this?

By using a VPN.

When you turn on SurfEasy VPN, you’re given an IP address from one of 13 different countries. This might be the country that you’re in, or it might be a different country entirely. When you visit any website – a car rental site or otherwise – it is tricked into thinking that you’re in whichever country you’ve connected to.

This means that you can connect to the USA region while searching for car rental deals, and the websites will believe that you’re accessing the site from the States. And because of this, they’ll offer you the better deal too.

Easy, right?
