Key Worker Car Hire Discount – Give Them a Break

What is the Give Them a Break Campaign?

The Give Them a Break campaign is a volunteer led, not-for-profit initiative set up in the wake of the coronavirus pandemic to offer discounted holidays and travel to the UK’s key workers in addition to ties with their charity partner, the Family Holiday Association.

What are we offering?

We are offering ALL keyworkers access to a discount of up to 10% off our standard rates* in addition to entering EVERY booking made via the scheme into our monthly prize draw where 1 in 20 will go FREE**.

To access the key worker car hire discount, simply follow this link.

Do I class as a keyworker?

Whilst NHS workers have been in the headlines during the pandemic for the remarkable job they have done to keep us all safe, other key workers have been working throughout the pandemic to keep the country going. The Give Them A Break campaign is not exclusive to NHS staff, rather intended to encompass ALL key workers, from teachers and refuse collectors to shop workers and bus drivers. We have no limitations*** to access the discount and trust that our offer will be used by all key workers and encourage them to share the offer with their colleagues, friends and loved ones.

The government have identified a list of workers / roles deemed critical to the coronavirus response and whose children can be prioritized for educational provisions including people who work in the following sectors;
  • NHS staff
  • Social care workers
  • Schools and nursery staff
  • Police officers
  • Court staff
  • Religious staff
  • Journalists
  • Some (not all) government staff
  • Delivery workers
  • Supermarket workers
  • MOD staff
  • Firefighters
  • Prison and probation workers
  • Transport workers
  • Infrastructure workers (eg, gas, electrical)
  • Some financial services workers
See here for the full list and updated information.

What other offers are available?

A range of travel discounts and offers are available to keyworkers via the campaign ranging from overseas and UK hotel discounts, tour company discounts and even a free Rough Guides e-book.

What is the Give Them A Break Fund?

In addition to discounts and savings offered by travel industry partners, businesses and individuals alike can donate to the Give Them A Break Fund directly. The fund is designed to help low-income families enjoy short breaks and day trips that would otherwise not be able to afford.
