Is anti-scratch protection film worth the money?

I am taking a delivery of a new car and have been offered anti-scratch protection film at a discounted price of £150 by the dealer. I have read else where about huge commissions dealers get out of such offerings, but in reality does the anti-scratch protection film makes any real difference? I intent to hold the car for long term.

"Anti-scratch protection film" is a new process. Basically 'wrapping' the car an a clear wrap. This is applied, not sprayed on. So £150 reads suspiciously cheap. The dealer might have used the wrong terminology. But £150 is cheap for a protective coating anyway.
