If I get the grant, when will I get the £2,000?
You’ll get the grant after we send you a grant offer letter, this letter will confirm how to accept the grant and what actions you need to take to claim funds.
Don’t scrap your vehicle until you get and accept a grant offer letter from Energy Saving Trust that says you’re eligible for the grant. If you scrap your vehicle before you get this offer letter, you won’t get the grant.
How do I get the travel better grant?
After you get the £2,000 for scrapping your vehicle, you can apply for up to £1,000 towards the cost of more sustainable travel options. We’ll send you the link to the application form following your vehicle disposal.
Up to two adults in a household can apply for funding. If two people apply, they can get a maximum of £500 each. If one person applies, they get a maximum of £500.
However, if you’re looking to buy a cargo bike or electric cargo bike for the family, or if you need an adaptive bike because of a health condition or disability, you can apply for up to £1,000. If you do this, the second adult in the household can’t apply for any funding.
You can buy a mix of items with the money, but the grant only covers up to £500 per adult if two adults apply. If the cost of what you buy goes over £500, you’ll have to pay for the extra costs yourself.
You must have received and accepted a travel better grant offer letter before you buy anything, this will be sent to you following submission of an eligible application.
