Travel deals (May 2021)

From flights to hotels and trains to taxis, here are some great travel deals, discounts, voucher codes and offers I’ve uncovered.

Hotel 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

Travelodge: 15% off

Until 17 May you can get 15% off rooms at Travelodge. It’s valid for stays until 1 September 2021. You need to activate the offer on the booking page. I’ve just rebooked a room for later this summer and saved £14.

Though as ever with Travelodge deals there are some annoying exclusions on dates and hotels, which you can see here.

Train deals and discounts

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.

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.

Railcards include:

  • 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.

Bus, tube and tram deals

None at present

Flight deals and discounts

I’ll update with any decent sales when they happen. Also, do read my guide to saving money when booking flights

Taxi and minicab deals

Money off your first Uber journey

Use the code 5ngkw on the Uber app to get a discount on your first ride. This is for first-time users only.

Car & MOT offers

Halfords: Free MOT (expired)

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. 

The scheme first launched on 28th July 2021 and the website crashed under the strain and the promotion was paused. But it restarted on 11th March 2021 but all voucher are now taken.

You could apply via the Gov.uk website.
