MoD Discount Service

Defence Discount Service

Are you a veteran? Did you once serve in the HM Armed Forces? Then you can save with the official MoD discount service, Defence Discount Service.

What is the Defence Discount Service?

Defence Discount Service was created by the MoD to support those in the Armed Forces past and present. With discounts both online and on the high street, Defence Discount Service hosts over 8,500 discounts, giving members plenty of chances to save. Defence Discount Service pride themselves on the variety of their offers, with members able to make savings on holidays, phones, energy bills, dining out, cars, travel, clothing, trips to the cinema, shopping, gifts and more. Companies listed include British Airways, EE, National Express, Cineworld, Starbucks, Ford, Prezzo, Saga Cruises, P&O Cruises, and NPower.

I’m a veteran – how can I get this?

Those that have served can apply for Defence Discount Service on its website, through a free mobile app, or they can call the DDS team and request an application form in the post. Veterans can apply for the discount card, the Defence Privilege Card, which can be used as a recognition card on the high street and help save in stores.

Tom Dalby, Head of Defence Discount Service says: ‘We are honoured to provide the official discount service to Armed Forces and veterans across the UK. Our Defence Privilege Card is a great recognition card and more stores and services are being added each week.’

How can I find out more?

Veterans can sign up for the service online, via the free mobile app called Defence Discount Service, or by requesting a postal application form on 01509 233446.
