  • Step 4 - Book a repair appointment in store at a time that is convenient for you. You can either leave your bike at your local store, or bring it back at the time of the your repair appointment with our bike mechanic.
  • Step 5 - Collect your bike. We’ll call to inform you when your bike is ready for collection. You’ll be able to put your voucher towards the cost of the repair work, which will cover the first £50 of your repairs and you can simply pay the difference if your repairs cost more than £50.


The Fix Your Bike Voucher Scheme aims to encourage more people in England to embrace cycling as an alternative to private cars and public transport, particularly while social distancing measures are in place. The scheme will be open to anyone who has an cycle in need of a repair. It will help them get it back on the road by providing £50 towards the cost of a service and repair for up to two cycles per household.

Registrations for members of the public who want to apply for a voucher open at 11:45pm on 28 July 2020 on the Energy Saving Trust website.

Search for your local participating businesses using this map (https://fixyourbikevoucherscheme.est.org.uk/Home/Map).

We are still registering businesses onto the scheme so you may want to check back if your local shop is not listed.

The UK government is also supporting the Big Bike Revival to deliver ‘pop-up’ repair stations in some areas, offering basic repairs free of charge. You may want to consider this option if convenient and available in your area instead of applying for a voucher - further details and a map of locations is available here (https://www.cyclinguk.org/bigbikerevival).



Q. What is the Free Fix Your Bike Government Voucher Scheme?The Government is championing getting people back on their bikes to discourage the spread of Covid-19, relieve the pressure on public transport, help people become fitter and healthier, and reduce air pollution.

As part of this, the Government has launched a scheme where it will make millions of pounds worth of bike repair vouchers available to residents in England. Each voucher will be worth up to £50 and recipients will be able to use them to help get old or broken bikes back into working order.



Q. How do I apply for a voucher?

From Wednesday the 28th of July you will be able to sign up for a £50 bike repair voucher on the Energy Saving Trust website.

Q. Can I apply for the scheme if I live in Northern Ireland, Scotland or Wales?

No. Unfortunately this scheme is only open to residents in England as transport policy is devolved for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. However, you can still book a free bike assessment in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to make sure that your bike is roadworthy.



Q. The Government website says I need to check if my store has availability. How do I check if my Halfords store has availability?

Our bike assessment appointments are typically available on a next-day basis, so there’s no need to check. We will also ensure that any repairs are completed within the 60-day voucher validity period.



Q. I’m a resident in England but want to use my voucher in a store that’s located in Scotland or Wales – can I do this?

No. Unfortunately this scheme is only open to residents in England as transport policy is devolved for Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales. However, you can still book a free bike assessment in Northern Ireland, Scotland and Wales to make sure that your bike is roadworthy.





Q. Do I need to have a voucher before I book my bike assessment?

No, you can book your bike assessment appointment first and then apply for a voucher. To make it easy, we’ll send you a link to the Government’s application portal once you’ve booked your assessment. You just need to make sure that you’ve got your voucher by the time you attend your appointment in-store.



Q. What identification do I need to bring with me to validate my voucher in-store?Option 1: Provide a valid driving licence photo card with address.

Q. How will my data be used? Will it be shared with the Government?

Halfords processes customers’ personal data. However, we are additionally obliged to share data about customers who use the Fix Your Bike voucher scheme with the UK government in order that they can reconcile their records and validate who has used their voucher. As such, Halfords, the Department for Transport and the Energy Saving Trust are all acting as independent and separate Data Controllers.
