Free Cava and cocktails
La Tasca is trying to tempt revellers to start the night with tapas. Its New Year's Eve menu comes with a free bottle of Cava for the table, plus one free La Tasca Spritz cocktail each - and buy-one-get-one-free on cocktails all evening. It could be a freebie-laden way to start your evening - although you'll need to book a table in advance because you might not be the only person who thinks of going out on 31 December.

Free 'congestion charge'
If you're planning a trip to London for sales shopping or the New Year, then there's one less thing to worry about, because the Congestion Charge is suspended between Boxing Day and 2 January. It will save you £11.50 a day - although if you're planning to park, you can still expect some hefty costs.
