If your services are due annually, like your MOTs, you will be set for the next 2 years. A typical plan provides you with 1 Full Service, 1 Major Service and your next 2 MOTs. However, if you require additional services, you can add these into your plan and still spread the cost.

No. Because then plan is designed to cover the essential service and MOT, it is not possible to use the funds for anything else. However, as a member of Halfords MotorCare, you will be able to take advantage of benefits on any repairs needed during the year such as free fitting on bulbs, blades and batteries.

Ideally you would have both together, but it is not essential. However, if you need the service before the end of the first year, there is unlikely to be enough money in the plan to cover the cost of the service so you will have to pay an additional amount on the day.

The service plan covers one service per year as this is sufficient for most people. If your car does need additional servicing during the year, this will have to be paid on the day, but you will be able to take advantage of reduced pricing. .

You will have to pay any shortfall on the day.

Due to the costs of requesting any failed Direct Debit and likely reasons why they failed, any missed ones will not be requested. You will not be advised at the time but will be told when you come in for your service/MOT that a payment was missed.

You will be able to pay the shortfall in the centre on the day. The amount you will have to pay will only be the amount of any Direct Debit payment missed.
