There is no doubt that consumers need to cut costs.
A recent poll that asked Holiday Extra's customers how they were dealing with the credit crunch found that 31.3% are reducing the amount they spend on food, while 29.8% said that they are limiting spending on their social lives in order to make their money go further. 14.2% are finding it necessary to dip into their savings, and 13.8% are cutting back on fuel and energy.
Only 10.9%, of those surveyed, said that they intend to spend less on holidays.
Even if you plan to spend the same amount on your holiday, you can still cut the costs - and that includes cutting cost on your airport parking.
Look out for the Airparks brand when you are searching to pre-book your airport parking - there are Airparks car parks at eight UK airports and all offer excellent service and cost cutting savings.
For travellers who want to cut the costs even more, eight days parking at Manchester Airparks Handforth Dean car park costs from as little as £29 for 8 days parking.
Passengers flying from Gatwick can save money by booking Gatwick Airparks - from £49 for eight days parking and £79 .95 for 15 days
Luton Airparks offers excellent rates for those who book their parking in advance - from £55.99 for eight days and £83.99 for 15 days parking.*
This price is correct for bookings in September 2009. Prices are subject to change. Book airport parking in advance to get the best price and availability.
