Martin Lewis has urged drivers to get a winter essential which is 100 per cent FREE at Halfords. All drivers have to do is sign up for the Halfords Club, the Money Saving Expert star revealed on Tuesday as he returned to the ITV The Martin Lewis Money Show from 8pm til 9pm.

He said on tonight's The Martin Lewis Money Show: "Halfords has a free 10-point winter car check with no purchase needed." Martin continued: "So sign up to its free Halfords Club and book your car check online and in store. Break lights, wiper blades, battery health, screen wash and tyre depth, they'll check it for you.

"You may as well get it, you don't have to pay anything for doing so." He explained: "In winter, your car's more likely to breakdown and, if it does, it's more serious. While we're talking about the AA and the RAC if you're getting a new cover from them, going via a cashback site like Quidco or TopCashback can sometimes halve the cost of new cover once you factor the cashback in.

"If you are renewing with the AA or RAC, haggle. It's the most successful sector of call centre haggling that you can get." On its website, Halfords says: "Book your 10 Point Car Check at one of over 750 Halfords stores and garages, the UK's largest provider of motoring services.

"The 10 Point Car Check takes approximately 30 minutes and can be booked online for a time that suits you. With over a thousand fully trained technicians, we perform vital checks to ensure your car is ready for the journey ahead. In case of any issues with your vehicle, you can book an MOT or car service to help you get back on the road."

"Got the membership so figured I would get the 10 point check. Sam did an amazing job at the Friern Barnet branch. Highly recommend," wrote one customer online. A second typed: "Thanks to Chris who sorted my balancing out ..Nothing was too much help.What a great customer service experience for a change I will definitely be using this depot again ...5stars from me."

A third wrote: "10 point health check just completed at Victoria Retail Park. Only goes up to five stars but if I could would have given it 10 stars. Wonderful service and everything explained to me. Just needed a rear wiper replacement. Didn’t push the sale, but when requested it was done immediately. Will definitely recommend this service."
