MEMBERS of the armed forces are being invited to take advantage of a discount scheme saving the money on the cost of a new car.

A newly-launched Defence Discount Service car programme will save money for servicemen and women, veterans and their families.

The discounts include money off a number of a new cars from dealers including Seat, Peugeot, Renault, and 
Kia.

Defence minister Anna Soubry said: ‘It is excellent news that so many organisations have signed up to show their support for our armed forces and 
veterans.

‘The Defence Discount Service is a great example of ways to help armed forces families by offering money off everyday items or more significant items like a new family car.

‘I hope to see even more companies around the country signing up to the Defence Discount Service to show their support for our armed forces community.

‘The roll-out of the Defence Discount Service car programme builds on the £65m already committed in 2013 on projects and initiatives to help improve the lives of the armed forces through the armed forces covenant.’
