How to stay safe while travelling with a VPN

By using a VPN to connect to the Internet, you can protect yourself and your devices on any network

There are a number of places around the world that attract tech enthusiasts either for their history or their significance in making our favorite films and games possible.  Whether you are traveling to Cupertino, California to visit the headquarters of Apple or off to Tokyo to shop at Akihabara, staying safe on your journey is of the utmost important.  By using a VPN to connect to the Internet, you can protect yourself and your devices on any network.

Most VPN service providers offer services globally and thus charge in US Dollars rather than in local currencies, so we've listed pricing in Dollars for the sake of simplicity.  Bear in mind that when you click through to the actual deals, you may find the prices automatically displayed in pounds, or whatever your native currency may be.

These are some of the best deals we found for protecting ourselves on our journeys:
