Since it seems we will have to constantly create a VPN, then delete it, then recreate it again when needed since there is no way to just disable when not needed.

Is there a tier for a flat fee for an Azure VPN??

    Hello Darrin Burns ,

    Thanks for reaching out in the Microsoft Q&A!

    Azure VPN pricing doesn't offer a flat monthly fee. Instead, charges are based on the type of gateway provisioned and the time it's available. This includes per-hour billing, where costs are incurred based on how long a VPN gateway is running, and the varying costs depending on the gateway type, such as Basic or VpnGw1, with more powerful gateways costing more. Although recreating the VPN each time might seem inconvenient, you can manage costs by leaving the VPN gateway provisioned but disconnected, which avoids the need for frequent recreations and incurs charges only when a connection is active. To better understand pricing and cost management for Azure VPN Gateway, you can refer to Microsoft's documentation on Azure VPN Gateway, the Azure VPN Gateway FAQ, and Azure cost management.

    If this answers your questions, you can mark it "accepted" to close the thread.

    Azure VPN currently does not have a flat fee offering for any of the SKU's. It will help if you could file a feature request for this on the feedback portal.

    You pay for two things: the hourly compute costs for the virtual network gateway, and the egress data transfer from the virtual network gateway. Pricing information can be found on the Pricing page.

    Compute cost is fixed cost as per the SKU selected. Data transfer costs are calculated based on egress traffic from the source virtual network gateway. If you're sending traffic to your on-premises VPN device, it will be charged with the Internet egress data transfer rate. This is currently documented here

    Please let me know if you have any questions. Thank you!
