We’ve made your hunt for dash cam discounts easier by picking out the best deals that retailers have to offer this Cyber Monday. Read on to find out more.
Nextbase 412GW – was £120, now £70 (46% off)
We liked: Comes with tons of features
We didn’t like: Very pricey
It may be part of Nextbase’s previous range of dash cams, but the 512GW still sits as one of the highest-spec models that the brand has to offer. It records footage in Quad HD, which is one of the highest recording resolutions you’ll find on a dash cam, as well as coming with all the bells and whistles – from parking mode to wi-fi.
With everything that it has to offer, it’s no surprise that this model has been one of Nextbase’s most expensive dash cam for some time now. But with this hefty Cyber Monday discount, you can get it for much less.

Halfords HDC300 – was £69, now £55 (22% off)
We liked: Can be used with a rear camera
We didn’t like: Fiddly to activate parking mode
One of the highest-spec models in Halfords’ HDC range, the HDC300 is one of two models (along with the Halfords HDC400) that can be used with Halfords’ rear camera, the HDC-R. This allows you to record the road in front and behind you, so you have eyes all over your car while you’re driving.
This model also comes with GPS and wi-fi, while still undercutting some of its competitors like Nextbase with its price. Not all of its features impressed us in our tests, though. We found a couple of niggles when activating the parking mode feature – the function that starts recording footage if your car is hit while parked.
Garmin Dash Cam Mini – was £99, now £79 (20% off)
We liked: Compact design is unobtrusive, still has wi-fi connectivity
We didn’t like: Audio sensitivity isn’t the best
One of the smallest dash cams you’ll find, the Garmin Dash Cam Mini’s biggest selling point is that it’s so compact that it’s about the same size as your car key fob. Surprisingly, its size doesn’t stop it from packing in useful features like wi-fi, so you’re not compromising on practicality.
This miniature model gave us a lot to talk about, but the audio captured on the Dash Cam Mini was disappointing. So if you’re recording commentary in a road accident, it won’t be as clear as it should be.
Cyber Monday deals on Halfords HDC dash cams
Halfords has a Black Friday deal that offers 20% off its ‘HDC’ dash cams. It also has a bundle on offer so you can save money if you’re purchasing its rear camera as well. Some of the other discounts are listed below:
While these deals are definitely still worth considering, Halfords has recently done a dash cam trade-in deal, offering customers 20% off a new model when they trade in an old one. So other deals may crop up in the next few months.
Amazon Cyber Monday dash cam deals
Amazon has discounted quite a few of the dash cams sold on its site as part of its Cyber Monday deals, but we’ve tested some of these dash cams and they scored poorly. If you’re not sure which dash cams to avoid, make sure you check our dash cam reviews before you buy.
Other retailers on Amazon are offering Nextbase dash cams for much less than their original launch price. However, this isn’t atypical to prices we’ve seen outside of Black Friday.
One deal we have spotted at Amazon is the Nextbase 512GW. It was £150 and is now £110 (27% off). This model’s packed with features and records in Quad HD, but we have seen better models in our tests.
