A Virtual Private Network helps you to make savings as it masks your own IP address and you take one on from the server to which you connected.

When you visit a website or streaming portal, it detects your devices IP address and you are presented with a local version of Spotify. For instance, spotify.com/nl/ in the Netherlands or spotify.com/uk/ in the United Kingdom.

The trick to making savings is to hide your IP address and make the website believe you are located in another country. You can do this using a VPN.
