Summer is fast approaching, everyone seems to be booking holidays at the moment. Getting everything organised and ensuring your holiday is all planned out can be quite a stressful experience. Airport parking doesn’t have to be stressful or time consuming, especially if you follow my tips and advice in this blog post.
One year when I went abroad with family, we had a huge struggle finding a spot. We spent so long driving around trying to find somewhere to park. It can also be pretty daunting having to leave your car parked where you aren’t 100% convinced it will be safe and secure.
Plus, I’ve also had the experience where you can’t remember where the car is parked because we were away for 10 days. Obviously, we did find the car in the end but we did spend a good while trying to search for our car.
The main piece of advice I can give you is to decide exactly what it is you are wanting, whether that may be saving on the costs of airport parking or pay a bit more for convenient parking. Onsite parking can work out to be a very expensive option but on a positive note, you will be able to park as close to airport as possible. Many airports now also offer Meet & Greet services, which can be especially beneficial for families.
Book in advance
As with most things now-a-days, booking in advance can really save you some pennies. Another bonus of booking in advance is, you are guaranteed a space which will be especially helpful over periods such as the summer months.
Use comparison tools to your advantage
Work out exactly what it is you need and are looking for, then you can use a consolidators (like a comparison website) to view and compare each car park in one place. This can save time instead of having to search and price up each one individually.
Keep an eye out for discounts, vouchers and offers
This one probably goes without saying but if you just do a quick google search, you will probably find some offers for airport parking. Some companies may even include discount or promotional codes in their newsletters, so it might be worth signing up to those.
Look for Park Mark accreditation
There are some awful horror stories online and in the news about holiday makers vehicles getting damaged whilst under the car of a parking company. To put your mind at ease; always look for a car park/company who have “Park Mark” accreditation, which shows that the car park meets all security specifications and has been independently inspected.
Are you going on holiday this year? Where are you going? How have you found the process so far? Good/bad? Let me know!
