Welcome to Holiday Extras

We offer you less (hassle) so you get more (holiday)


Using innovative technology and the smartest, fastest and most personal service in travel we bring you great value airport hotels, airport parking, airport lounges, airport transfers, car hire, holiday insurance and UK breaks. With almost 40 years' experience, there's nothing that our team of travel experts doesn't know about taking the hassle out of organising a holiday at home or abroad. Whether we're helping remove hassle in person, online or via the Holiday Extras mobile app (which is powered by HEHA!, the super-intelligent Holiday Extras Holiday Assistant) we provide an unrivalled experience to over 8 million travellers a year.

The next five years for travel

The last two years changed travel for everyone. While travel was on hold through much of 2020 and 2021 we focussed our efforts on building the fastest, smartest and most personal service in travel, rolling out a new UK breaks platform so people could have a great holiday without flying overseas, and building a completely new and flexible refund system to ensure that when our customers went on holiday again they could book with maximum flexibility.

In 2022, people are travelling again. The mix of destinations has changed, and the places that welcomed us in through 2020 and 2021 are more popular than ever. Apart from a little extra paperwork travel is pretty much back to normal. Now we're remaking holidaymaking by building HEHA!, our travel recommendations engine that improves every trip by delivering personalised, intelligent recommendations.
