Defence Discount Service - Coca-Cola London Eye Military Discount

The Coca-Cola London Eye is centrally located in the heart of the capital, gracefully rotating over the River Thames opposite the Houses of Parliament and Big Ben. At 135 metres, the London Eye is the world's tallest cantilevered observation wheel, offering breathtaking 360 degree views of the capital and its famous landmarks.

An experience on the Coca-Cola London Eye will lift you high enough to see up to 40 kilometres on a clear day and keep you close enough to see the spectacular details of the city unfolding beneath you.

See London come to life on our London Eye 4D Experience through unique perspectives and multi-sensory special effects, including wind, bubbles and smell. The 4 minute show is perfect to watch at the start of your visit and is free with every ticket.

Merlin passholders can treat themselves to a discount on our champagne experience by using their Passholder Perks.

How To Maintain A Good Credit Record When You’re In The Military

Are you a good or a poor credit risk? You may not know until you submit an application for a loan or credit. Here are some top tips on how to maintain a healthy credit score, regardless of your location.

The result can sometimes be surprising. Moving around with the military doesn’t always help your credit score, although significant effort has been made in recent years to improve awareness within the financial industry of the circumstances of military personnel.

How does a credit rating score work?

Your credit score measures you as a financial risk. A poor credit score can make it difficult to borrow money. This can affect your application for credit cards, motor finance, a mortgage and other services such as mobile phone contracts.

How is your credit risk measured?

All lenders want different things and have their own ways of scoring but are likely to take into account the following:

  • Occupation
  • Address history
  • Length of employment
  • Annual Income
  • Previous and existing creditors and your credit payment history
  • County Court Judgments
What is likely to make you a poor credit risk?
