Book airport parking early: the easy way to save

With more and more holidaymakers escaping the dreary UK summer, the key question for many remains: how to save money on holiday? Booking airport parking in advance with Holiday Extras is just one solution, and one that comes highly recommended by such leading authorities as the Mail on Sunday and

It's true that many find airport parking expensive. But it doesn't have to be that way when you pre-book with Holiday Extras. We offer the lowest rates for airport parking at 26 UK airports, working with a number of leading suppliers and operating secured airport parking facilities under our very own Airparks brand.

"It is one of the great travel myths that airport parking is an inflated expense that holidaymakers are forced to pay at the gates when they arrive," said Mike Whiting, managing editor at Holiday Extras. "The truth of the matter is that airport parking can be secured for a bargain price, much like any other product. Booking in advance, for example, can save you up to 60% off the prices you can expect to pay on the day."

But how exactly can you ensure that booking airport parking doesn't eat into your holiday budget? The simple advice is to search around for a product that meets your requirements and, perhaps more importantly, your budget.

Off-site airport parking can often prove the greatest value for money. For example, airport parking at Gatwick Airparks starts from as little as £6.24 per day, or £49.95 for eight days. These prices include return transfers to the terminal around the clock, meaning that secured airport parking can be enjoyed for a fraction of the price you might expect.

On-site services, meanwhile, are also available at a low cost. Prices at the Gatwick Long Stay begin at £7 per day or £56 for eight days, with the south terminal of Gatwick Airport just a few minutes away by transfer bus.

"We at Holiday Extras work hard on securing the best rates and the best service for our customers," continues Mike. "Plus, since we have over 25 years' experience in supplying travel add-ons such as airport hotels and airport parking, our customers can rest assured they are booking with a company they can trust."

So next time you're heading out on holiday, remember to book airport parking early with Holiday Extras to secure the best deal and make your money go further on holiday.
