ExpressVPN is an interesting Premium VPN service, towards the top end of the VPN market in terms of price, but what do you get for that price in terms of servers and country choice? How many countries and servers do they offer, and where are they located?
In this guide we’ll aim to provide as much detail and precision as possible on where exactly ExpressVPN’s servers are located, including down to particular cities within countries, so readers can decide if it’s the service for them.
Here is a bottom line summary answer:
ExpressVPN has approximately 160 server locations in total in 94 countries, with North America, The UK, Europe and Australia especially well covered for country, server and location choice. The USA is particularly well represented, with 24+ servers in 16 different cities.
However, we’ll break the topic down into much more detail, examining in detail all the server locations of ExpressVPN, and also notable countries where it doesn’t currently have servers, before comparing it’s server choice to some other VPN’s.

Where Does ExpressVPN NOT Have Servers?
ExpressVPN has one of the very best country selections in the entire VPN market. In fact, I’m not aware of a VPN that offers more country servers than them. Server selection within countries isn’t the highest in the market, but country selection is.
There are around 200 countries in the world, many of them tiny islands and territories, and ExpressVPN has servers in 94 countries. Therefore, almost all major countries are covered.
However, here are some countries I could find where ExpressVPN currently does not have servers:
- Europe – superb coverage. I could only find Latvia missing from the server list. Even tiny countries like Andorra and Monaco are covered.
- Russia (removed in 2022, may be reinstated at some point). See here for our guide on VPN’s that still offer servers in Russia.
- Most African countries. Only South Africa, Algeria, Egypt, Kenya are covered, nowhere else. Not great coverage here.
- Most middle eastern countries (UAE, Bahrain, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Jordan, Oman etc) not offered. Only Israel is covered.
- Far East – Superb coverage. Can’t find any countries missing here.
- Americas – Paraguay, Nicaragua, Guyana, Suriname not covered. Also most of the Caribbean not covered (Bahamas server is offered, but nowhere else).
In general, ExpressVPN has excellent server choice in North and South America, Europe, The Far East and Commonwealth countries. Coverage is much poorer in Africa, and the Middle East. Russia and China servers are also not available with ExpressVPN.
ExpressVPN vs Other VPNs For Server Choice
ExpressVPN is an interesting VPN service, because it offers the very best choice of countries available on the Premium VPN market (94), but for the actual server choice within those countries, it lags behind other VPN providers (only around 160 servers versus thousands for some other VPN services)
However, for any major country you pick (especially major countries like USA, UK, main European countries), you are likely to be able to choose from a large selection of servers in that country and location.
This can be especially useful when trying to access streaming services, where if one server doesn’t work, you’ve got plenty of others you can try in the same city/country, to try and get it to work.
But for any other country, it’s going to be one server in only one location, usually the capital city. There isn’t a great deal of server choice once you get the outside the main countries.
In other words, ExpressVPN has a decent country choice, but only average overall server choice across all countries as a whole.
Here’s how ExpressVPN stacks up compared to some other well known Premium VPN services:
VPN Server Choice Comparison (links are affiliate links)
|Provider||Price (12 months paid in advance)||Number of countries offered||Number of Servers Offered||Main Benefits|
|Le VPN||$5/month||77||120+||Good country choice|
|ExpressVPN||$8/month||94||160+||Best country choice|
|ProtonVPN||$4/8/month (Basic/Plus)||63||1700+||Reputable brand|
|Private Internet Access||$3.33/month||84||10,000||Great server & country choice.|
*Flash deals and offers are very common, so you may often find a better deal than the one listed for many providers
If you’re looking for a VPN with the most countries covered, then ExpressVPN is the best. There isn’t another Premium VPN I know of that offers more. Private Internet Access and Le VPN get close, but can’t match ExpressVPN.
If you’re looking for a more basic, no nonsense VPN with less countries covered (just the main ones), but that’s cheaper, then AtlasVPN is a good option.
If you’re looking for a VPN that offers more server choice within the countries that are offered, then NordVPN is one of the better ones, but Private Internet Access also offers more, as does TurboVPN (but they offer less countries).
