Looking for some UK travel inspiration? Whether you’ve got your eye on a cosy cabin retreat in the middle of nowhere, or a boozy weekend with your mates, book now and save with Defence Discount Service.

Summer’s well and truly on the way and we can’t wait to get out and about. We know that things have been a little different over the past few years and that the traditional family holiday has changed a lot – for some of us, it means a cruise to the Caribbean and for others, it means an epic family day out or a few days on the coast, soaking up the sun, sea and sand on home shores.

Whatever your budget and whatever your circumstances, enjoy a holiday or day out for less this summer and make some memories along the way.

UK holiday gems

Planning somewhere further afield?

Can’t wait to get abroad this year? You’re certainly not alone! Millions of us are planning our first international travel since the pandemic. If you’ve missed the sweet smell of Duty Free as much as we have, then these savings on flights, cruises, package deals and glamping are for you.

London day trips for all the family

Not planning a big break? No problem. We all know that a day out in London can cost a small fortune (not to mention the staggering number of steps on your Fitbit), but it doesn’t have to when you’ve got your Defence Privilege Card to hand!

Why not make a night of it?

Is there anything worse than having a great day out, only to return to a stuffy, overcrowded train station? When all you want to do it find the nearest restaurant and enjoy yourself, it makes sense to book a hotel and just stay the night. Plus, with our exclusive savings at some of the best and most accessible places in London, you’ll rest easy knowing you’ve had a cracking time without breaking the bank.
