You could route a VPN through Tor. If those resources accept the VPN
exit IPs, it should work. AirVPN has instructions for routing their
client Eddie through Tor.[0] But with Tails, you'd need to install and
configure Eddie at each boot. You can also do it in Whonix, and the
setup will persist. But for both, you'd need to tweak Tor browser so it
doesn't connect directly via Tor, but through AirVPN which is routed
through Tor.
