From flights to hotels and trains to taxis, here are some great travel deals, discounts, voucher codes and offers I’ve uncovered.
Here are the quick links to my pick of current travel discounts.
- Taxi and minicab deals – inc Uber and Addison Lee first time offers
- Train, tube and bus deals inc Railcard offers, Eurostar £58 return
- Flight deals – Norwegian, Virgin Atlantic sales
- Hotel deals – spend £120 at Booking.com get £40 back
£10 off Uber cabs
Use the code BECLEVER on the Uber app to get your “first ride free”, which in reality means you have £10 free credit towards your first journey. This is for first-time users only.
Get discounted Uber credit
Until 10th September you can save 15% on Uber gift cards with Paypal. You can buy either a £50 card or a £25 card. It’s a digital card so hopefully you’ll get it straight away to add to your Uber account.
You can also get a big saving on Uber credit using Tesco Clubcard points. More on this in my guide below.
£10 off Addison Lee cabs
These codes are only valid on the Addison Lee app.
Use the code ADDLEE10 to save £10 on your first Addison Lee booking.
Eurostar sale – £58 return to Paris
If you fancy a trip to Paris or Brussels before Christmas then is is a great deal. Last year we used a similar offer to visit the Christmas markets in Brugges.
Other destinations (which cost a little more) include Lyon, Avignon and Marseille.
Book before 11th September for journeys between 28th September 2017 and 9th December 2017.
Buy 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
- 18-25 Railcard
- NetworkRailcard (South East trains only)
- Disabled Persons Railcard
- Senior Railcard
- Two Together Railcard
Offers to save run regularly through the year. Right now the code FAMILY10 will save 10% on a Friends & Family card. Or you can use ONLINE to get the same deal on a Two Together railcard. Both end 2nd September 2017.
Half price railcards with Tesco Clubcard
Or, even better, you can get any railcard half-price if you have Tesco Clubcard points. You need £15 worth of points to get this or any other railcard.
This is a great sale. I’ve found £239 returns from London to New York, and there are sub-£400 returns to LA and Las Vegas, as well as Singapore, Seattle Florida and other destinations. These prices don’t include £25 to check a bag each way, and £25 to reserve a seat.
Ends 18th September but obviously some flights will sell out before then.
Virgin Atlantic sale
From 17th August 2017 Virgin Atlantic is running a big sale. Ends 20th September.
Spend £120 at Booking.com get £40 back
Until 31st August you can get a huge £40 back from Booking.com. You need to spend £120 via the link below (and only that link) and after you’ve checked out of your booked hotel you’ll get £40 refunded to your card.
You should see a green pop up at the bottom of the screen showing the offer details. Unfortunately the terms and conditions of the deal aren’t hugely clear. There’s nothing that says you have to complete the stay by a certain date – just that the incentive ends after 12 months. However I think it’s all fine. I’ve just used it to rebook a hotel and through the booking process and in the confirmation the £40 refund was mentioned a few times. Make sure you select which credit card you want the money paid to.
