I'll try this shortly. I've two Revolut card numbers so used the other one to get a free month with a new account. I'll try update my original account with an Irish card, see what the story is.

My Windscribe is looking for a fee to unlock Turkey for VPN. Do I have to pay or is there a way around this ?

Thanks in advance.

Use tor with exit nodes set to {tr} - worked for me, no charge, just a tiny amount of effort needed.

I can't even sign into my Turkish Account using Tor with Turkey as location. I always get a network error message. If i change location to US or Ireland i can sign in no problems. Might just try another email and set up a new account.

Edit: Tried a different route and clicked to start a 30 day trial but since ive had this already they pushed me to the payment update page. Entered my Irish card and it was successful so my Turkish Account is back up and running. Wonder how long it will last.

Can confirm I let my Irish account expire fully and rejoined at Turkish prices with Avast VPN.

Also signed up to Turkish Youtube Premium.

I kept my existing youtube account no problem (I wasn't premium before though).

I followed the steps on hukd .

6 months into my Turkish sub, (think I was in Argentina the year before!), and I woke this morning to a Revolut notification that my payment had been reverted. Does this mean this months payment didn't go through then? Or a refund from Netflix?! My account is still working on my phone anyway!

Same thing happened to me. Have an older sub that's working ok though for the moment. They're having similar problems on hukd too

Have they banned Revolut as a payment method? I used to just create a new virtual card and sign up for the trial every few months when there's something I'd want to watch or I'd be away travelling with work. Won't accept any Revolut as payment at all now.

Back to torrents for me anyway, shows/films I'll actually watch.. Would rather put the money towards upgrading my NAS than paying for majority of rubbish on offer on Netflix.

I've signed up by reactivating an expired account using HolaVPN (you get 3 days free) -Turkey.

It took a few attempts as I kept getting a "error connection "

I tried Revolut but it asked for a mobile number to verify.

Used my Visa Card and hey presto it went through.
