From flights to hotels and trains to taxis, here are some great travel deals, discounts, voucher codes and offers I’ve uncovered.
Parking deals and discounts
I’ll update with any special sales and codes when they happen. Also do read my guide to getting the best value when booking hotels.Taxi, Uber and minicab deals and discounts
NCP: Free day of parking
Until 31 August 2021 you can claim a free day of parking at NCP car parks via the ParkPass app.
Once you’ve signed up you can enter the code FREE2 in the app on the day you want the free parking. It obviously has to be at a car park that accepts the payment app – there are more than 250 in the UK.
LNER: £5 credit
Sign up to LNER’s Perks scheme and you’ll get £5 credit. You can use this for bookings made on the app. You’ll also be able to earn 2% credit back on bookings.
LNER: Annual sale
Until 1 September 2021 you can book tickets on LNER routes for as little as £5. They’re valid for travel between 6 September and 15 October 2021.
Northern Rail: Flash sale
While tickets last you can get £1 tickets on the Northern route, with kids travelling for 50p. They’re valid for travel between 6 September and 22 October 2021.
1/3 off fares with a railcard
These cards are valid for 12 months and should save you a third on most fares if you fit the criteria. You’ll also soon be able to have a digital version of your card on your phone.
- Friends & Family Railcard
- 16-17 Saver (from 20th August)
- 18-25 Railcard
- 26-30 Railcard
- NetworkRailcard (South East trains only)
- Disabled Persons Railcard
- Senior Railcard
- Two Together Railcard
Offers to save more run regularly through the year, and I’ll update here if I spot any – however right now they’re not on sale due to coronavirus limitations on travel.
Two-thirds off railcards with Tesco Clubcard
Or, even better, you can get any railcard for a third of the price if you have Tesco Clubcard points. You need £10 worth of points to get this or any other railcard in full, though you can part pay with vouchers.

Car & MOT offers

Most years Halfords offers a free MOT offer. You usually have to buy something in-store to qualify. This year it runs from 25th March 2021 to 19th April 2021.
Bike and cycling deals
Fix Your Bike voucher scheme (expired)
150,000 vouchers are being released by the government to help you repair your bike. They’re worth £50 and are first-come, first-serve.
