Halfords logoHalfords free bike workshops for kidsOver the Summer holiday at 415 UK branches

Limited slots

If you go online to Halfords, you can book your child a place on its free kids' bike workshops, which cover basic checks and safety tips for 7-11-year-olds. It's available at more than 415 of its 468 stores across the UK but it's worth booking early as slots are very limited, so go quick.

When are the next workshops?

  • Summer Holidays, 3 Aug - 26 Oct (depending on location) between 11am and 12pm.

Group sizes will be between 5-10 children. Halfords told us parents must stay with the youngsters during the workshop and they're encouraged to take part too. There's also a free goody bag for kids after completing the course which contains: a tool kit, slap-wrap, discount voucher and certificate.

Halfords values it at about £15 and it's available in 700+ locations nationwide.

Halfords says it'll take 15 minutes and you don't need to book in advance - just turn up and speak to a member of staff. Be warned... they may try to sell to you, but there's no obligation to buy anything or act on any advice you're given. These checks are completely free.

Halfords logoHalfords: MoneySaving tips & tricks*Incl free Click & Collect, haggling & sales discounts


There are always ways to save money at Halfords*, so even if there isn't a cracking deal out there that works for you, don't assume you can't cut your costs further. 

Ways to save include:

  • Free Click & Collect. Standard delivery's free at Halfords, but only when you spend £30 or more. If you're spending less, delivery's £2.99 - but you can avoid paying this by collecting your order from a Halfords store for free (find your nearest*).
  • Check for offers. See the Halfords offers page* to find seasonal offers and sales throughout the year. Of course, we'll feature the broader discounts, but you may find a slightly more niche offer on the Halfords page that works for what you're buying.
  • Try haggling. We polled 1,400 MoneySavers to find out in which shops hagglers have most success. Lots of high street retailers are known to give discounts to customers who ask, so it's always worth a punt. For more haggling tips, see our Haggle on the High Street guide.
  • Check similar retailers. If you're not committed to buying from Halfords, check for deals from other stores such as ArgosTesco Direct or Millets, where you may find there's a better deal.
  • Want more? Find out more shopping tricks in our Shopping Secrets guide.
  • Had a problem with Halfords? There's a free online tool you can use to draft, manage and if necessary escalate a complaint. It's called Resolver, and we like it so much we work with it to help people get complaints justice - you can use it to complain to Halfords*.

Expired Deals

Yankee Candle logoFREE Yankee Candle car air freshenerVia O2 app until Sun 15 May at Halfords


Smartphone users can get a free Yankee Candle black cherry car air freshener at Halfords via the O2 Priority app. Simply show the code from the app to staff at the checkout. 

It's due to last until Sun 15 May, but could end before if all the codes run out. O2 wasn't able to tell us exactly how many codes are left, but offers like this can run out very quickly - so you'll need to go quick if you want this.

How to get it

If you're on O2 and you haven't got the app already, you can download it for free from Apple's App StoreGoogle Play for Android or Microsoft's Windows store. Open the app, search for Halfords and the offer (and your nearest participating store) should appear.

Once you redeem the offer, it'll give you a unique code which you need to show on your smartphone in store. Wait until you're at the checkout and have the air freshener in your hand before selecting the 'use it now' option as your code could expire in the queue if it's long.

Not on O2? 

There's a sneaky way of getting O2 Priority offers even if you're not an O2 customer. It might be too late for you to get this deal, but you can get prepared for the next O2 Priority freebie. See our O2 Priority for EVERYONE! guide to find out how.

The offer's valid on everything within the pet travel* department, including seat covers, dog guards, harnesses and cages, but can't be used on items sold by third-party sellers - this will be clearly displayed beside the item where applicable.

Halfords logoHalfords FREE car maintenance lesson*Incl checking oil, wiper blades & lights


You can book a free 'winter motor workshop' at Halfords* for Mon 12 Oct to learn how to check your car’s roadworthiness. Halfords says it's available in 397 of its 420 retail stores (not its autocentres).

Bizarrely, it's marketed as women only, but it will allow men too. You need to book online in advance, via the link above. There are eight places available for each class - more than 3,000 places nationwide - so book quickly if you want to attend one.

The workshop includes:

  • Checking oil
  • Checking wiper blades
  • Advice on checking your lights
  • Oil levels 
  • Screen wash check with a free top-up
  • Tips on taking care of your car in the winter

Why is Halfords marketing this as women only?

Halfords says it's offering these workshops as a result of "extensive research" that suggests many women don't know how to perform basic checks on their car (although at MSE Towers, some of the women know a lot more about cars than the men, so we don't necessarily agree with Halfords - MSE Ant, Guy and Tom certainly have no idea about how to change their oil). But as we've already said, Halfords did tell us men will be welcome to take part.

There's no obligation to buy anything or act on any advice, but be prepared - staff might try to upsell you.

Halfords logoHalfords FREE summer car checks*700+ locations available. Incl free screenwash top-up


Summer's officially here, so it's a good time to ensure your car's ready for any road trips you might have planned. Drive to any Halfords* or Halfords Autocentre* and you can get a free six-point summer car check (valued at £15) until Mon 21 Sep. There are more than 700 locations available.

Checks on your car include:

  • Battery 
  • Bulbs 
  • Wiper blades 
  • Oil levels 
  • Screenwash levels, topped up for free
  • Air conditioning 

Halfords says it takes about 15 minutes and you don't need to book in advance, but you can book online if you want a specific time slot. It'll also top up your screenwash for free (up to 2 litres, norm £2ish). There's no obligation to buy anything or act on any advice, but be prepared - staff might try to upsell you.

You can also get your tyres checked...

In addition to the free summer car check, you can also get a free tyre safety check when you drive to a Halfords Autocentre (find your nearest*). The service includes a pressure check and full tyre inspection, and shouldn't take any longer than about 10 minutes - again there’s no obligation to act on any advice.

We checked with Halfords and it told us you can have both the summer car check and the tyre safety check carried out on the same day. Unlike the summer car check, the tyre check is available at any time of year. There's no need to book in advance.

use the money mantras

Before spending, use Martin's Mantras. If you answer 'NO' to any, Don't buy!

Skint? ask:
  • Do I need it?
  • Can I afford it?
not skint? ask:
  • Will I use it?
  • Is it worth it?
Section 75

Free protection for all shopping!

There's a little-known piece of legislation that turns any credit card into a financial self-defence superhero. 'Section 75' of the Consumer Credit Act means your plastic must protect anything you buy for more than £100 for free, so if there's a problem or the company goes bust, you can still get your money back.

And although Section 75 doesn't apply to debit cards, there is something else to fall back on if you've paid using a debit card, or used a credit card for a purchase under £100. Known as Chargeback, this is part of banks' and card companies' internal rules and not a legal requirement. Read full details of Section 75 or Chargeback, plus how to claim, in our guides.
