Question Using VPN for searching: which national IP for best discounts?

Hi all I tried to search for this topic, but I couldnt find any general post on this. The question is how to maximize VPN use to find the best deals. Some flight deals are hidden behind IP addresses of certain countries if I am not mistaken. For my part, we want to travel most often from Europe to Southeast Asia. For instance would it make most sense to search with a Romanian IP for lowest prices?

So the question is: when using VPN for ordering flights Europe to Asia, which country should we start our search from for highest average discount rates?

Thank you so much for all help, and really sorry if this post is in the wrong forum or if VPN have no actual use in searching for the best offers.

Best regards from Ursa

It's impossible to know what country is cheapest - though often PRG< BUD, OTP, etc. In any case using a VPN is not necessary as you can just use a local travel aggregator e.g. kayak.co.uk - .fr . de - etc.

Additionally, even if you do find discounts in other countries, you may not be able to take advantage of them. United, for example, sets your point of sale to the address for your credit card and prices accordingly.
