ExpressVPN starts this competition strong as a well-respected VPN provider with the fastest service we’ve ever tested. AirVPN, on the other hand, is a popular and competitive provider with decent security infrastructure. ExpressVPN boasts a rare split-tunnelling feature and 2,000+ servers in 94 countries, while AirVPN competes with port forwarding and 223 servers in 20+ countries. You’ll only find a 24/7 live chat support and a 30-day money-back guarantee with ExpressVPN, as AirVPN only provides support via email and tickets and offers just a 3-day guarantee. Although both VPNs have DNS leak protection in place, ExpressVPN further protects your data by guarding against WebRTC and IPv6 leaks. Finally, while these two VPNs both offer apps for MacOS and Windows, only ExpressVPN has dedicated apps for mobile devices running Android or iOS. These two VPNs also share similarities, however, with both AirVPN and ExpressVPN offering a built-in DNS and access to dedicated IP addresses. Both VPNs also have a kill switch and 256-bit encryption to help you stay anonymous. If you’re interested in streaming or torrenting, both VPNs offer dedicated P2P and streaming servers. Ultimately, this comparison will be decided by the performance of each VPN across multiple categories.

 The Bottom Line

ExpressVPN’s across-the-board excellence when it comes speed, security, and accessing of geoblocked content makes it extremely difficult for other VPNs to compete. AirVPN has some attractive features, but ExpressVPN’s nearly perfect performance allows it to win this contest without a doubt. It providers more security features and has dedicated servers for every online purpose, including streaming and P2P. ExpressVPN’s far longer money-back guarantee and 24/7 live chat support turn this competition into a very one-sided affair. Most VPNs compromise in some areas, but ExpressVPN does not cut corners with any part of its service, which is why it’s one of our top-rated VPNs.
