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.
I’ve listed the best train ticket savings in a separate deals page here.

Bus fares will be capped at £2 one way in England from January to the end of October 2023, extended from the original deadline of March 2023. It’ll then increase slightly to £2.50 for November. However, there is a chance that not all bus companies will take part, though you can see which ones are here.

Petrol and motoring deals
Halfords: Free 10-point car check and £5 voucher
If you join the Halfords Motoring Club for free, you can get a free £5 voucher to spend online or in-store at Halfords and a free 10-point car check, worth £15.
There’s a Premium tier for £49 per year that gets you your MOT (worth £44.99), 2 10-point car checks, a free fitting of wiper blades or headlights and 5% off at the autocentres and in-store.
This is generally a pretty good deal, but definitely worthwhile if you’re having enough work on your car to make the most of the 5% off, don’t know how to change your headlights or windscreen wipers and would usually do your MOT at Halfords.
5p off a litre of petrol at Morrisons (expired)
From 11 to 21 May 2023 you can get 5p off each litre of petrol at Morrisons petrol stations if you spend £35 in the supermarket. You’ll get one voucher per qualifying spend, so you can get more than one if you make multiple shops. You show the voucher when you pay. You can see locations and terms and condtions here.
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.
