We've probably all heard of someone that has suffered at the hands of rogue airport parking traders; those car park 'proprietors' that park cars for next to nothing while their trusting owners make their way to sunnier climes. But how much of a problem with airport parking is there, and how much is urban myth?
A quick Google search and the extent of the problem becomes clear. Forums, blogs and chatrooms abound with reports of stolen cars, scratched bodywork, unauthorised vehicle use and more. Add to the equation the ease with which a legitimate looking website can be set up to take a booking and the problems are manifold.
Investigations into rogue airport parking operators have been carried out in recent years by such media giants as the BBC and Sky News. And, since such horror stories continue to populate the web, it is perhaps no surprise that travellers are somewhat reticent about booking airport parking.
After all, how can you tell who to trust in these days of rogue traders looking to make a quick buck? It will come as a relief to know that there is one name in whom travellers can put their faith.
