Only one voucher can be claimed per person, and although the number of available vouchers isn't specified, there are only a small number available, so ensure you are actually going to use it, before applying, so as to make sure that someone that really needs one, doesn't miss out.
You will need to specify the type of bike you have during the voucher process, make sure you give the correct information as the repairer will cross reference this when booking in your repair. Also ensure you put down your address correctly, as you will need to take valid ID, with your address, when you take your bike to the repair centre.
