Throughout September last year there was a flurry of announcements from various car manufacturers detailing their own unique car scrappage schemes, giving customers the chance to get money off a new vehicle when you scrapped your old car. All of them were limited time scrappage offers, with some ending in October, November, and December. However, if you're quick, you can still take advantage of some scrappage scheme deals, because there are still a few that have continued into 2018, due to finish at the end of this month.

If you're in the market for a brand new car and have an old car to scrap, here's an update on which schemes are still available at the moment…

Scrap Yard. What scrappage schemes are available to you in the UK?

Audi Scrappage Incentive

You can get up to £8,000 off an Audi, if you choose to trade your scrappage car for one of 12 of their models, including the Audi TT, and the Q2 e-tron.

Citroën Scrappage Scheme

The Citroën Scrappage Scheme ensures that cars traded in through the scheme are recycled with CarTakeBack, the approved scrap car recycling partner to Citroën. You can use the offer on many Citroën vehicles, including the C1, C3 Aircross, and their range of Relay vans.

Peugeot gives you a range of 14 models to choose from through their scrappage scheme, from the 108 city car, to the 3008 SUV, and even their Boxer vans. There are deals up to £7,000 off a new car from them, and the scrappage scheme ensures that all scrappage vehicles are recycled through CarTakeBack, their official scrap car recycling partner.

Seat Scrappage Incentive

Seat stipulates that you must have owned the car for 6 months or more to be eligible for their scrappage allowances.
