Upgrade from standard to extra
Upgrading your trip from standard to extra not only makes the most of your time off - it's often a lot cheaper than you think.
Did you know that on average couples spend more than £23 each at the airport waiting for their plane?*
So with lounges starting from £15 for an adult and £9 for a child, you can often save money on your trip by booking a lounge.
Live the lounge life
Research conducted by Holiday Extras in January 2020 with 3,000 recent travellers revealed that, by their own estimate, people waiting for a plane at a UK airport often spent more on snacks, drinks, meals and wifi than the cost of a lounge - meaning they could have enjoyed the relaxing luxury of an airport lounge and got their drinks and food as part of the entry fee.
Holiday Extras has airport lounges available from as little as £15 for an adult and £9 for a child. So our latest research suggests that not booking a lounge before you fly could often be a false economy. An airport lounge is an oasis of calm away from the bustle of departures with comfortable seating as well as food, drink and wifi laid on. It helps you unwind before you fly and gets you in the mood to enjoy your trip. All that, and it'll often turn out cheaper than not booking a lounge

Book your holiday extras early
It pays to book your airport lounge, airport parking and airport hotel as soon as you book your flights. Prices usually go up nearer the date you fly, and last year Holiday Extras saved our airport parking customers £100 each on average when they pre-booked their airport parking instead of paying on the day.Book my airport lounge today
Get the red tarmac treatment with Meet and Greet airport parking
Meet and Greet parking is the most hassle-free way to park at the airport. Last year in 2019 more than 600,000 Holiday Extras customers used our Meet and Greet airport parking services, and a massive 92% of them said they'd book it again. It's an increasingly popular, convenient way to park at the airport.
It works like this. A professional driver picks up your car from departures, drives it to a secured car park near the airport for you, and then drives it back to arrivals when you come home. You don't do any of the parking, and your car's right there so you can drive home as soon as you step off the plane - a real red tarmac start (and end) to your holiday.
How Holiday Extras helps you pick the best Meet and Greet parking at every airport
Let us protect you from fake Meet and Greet operators.
When you book Meet and Greet parking with Holiday Extras, you're booking with a 37-year-old, family-run business based in Kent where more than a thousand people are dedicated to working every day to make your holiday hassle-free. So we can make sure your car is in safe hands.
HEHA! - remaking holidaymaking
Introducing HEHA! The Holiday Extras Holiday Assistant – maximising holiday by minimising hassle, HEHA! is the easiest way to upgrade every trip.
By telling HEHA! a handful of details about your flight and destination, it will filter out all the irrelevant products and services that would otherwise make comparing that bit more of a hassle. For example, HEHA! will know which terminal you're flying from, so will ignore all the hotels and car parks that are at different terminals. It will also return pricing for the most appropriate timings, taking into account when you arrive at the airport and when your flight departs. You can still see and edit these details but HEHA! is making it all that little bit quicker and easier.
HEHA! also stores everything as a trip so you can schedule and view everything according to your holiday or business trip rather than simply an inbox of booking confirmations or notes. Click on your next trip and see exactly everything you have already booked or are keeping an eye on, plus all the services that are available to add to your trip. All together in one simple view. In your hand. HEHA! is remaking your holiday-making.

For a two-week holiday in peak season, you can often upgrade from parking at the airport to a hotel with parking for only an extra £15.
Upgrade to an airport hotel with parking
For the ultimate trip upgrade don't just park at the airport - treat yourself to a good night's sleep before your flight and wake up a stroll from departures in one of our hand-picked airport hotels.
Especially in peak season, it's often only an extra £15 to upgrade from parking to a hotel with parking, so the luxury of waking up at the airport might be cheaper than you think.
Holiday Extras offers more than 300 hotel and parking packages at UK airports that you can't find anywhere else - so before you book an airport hotel with parking, make sure you're not missing out on one of our unique deals!
How we create unique, exclusive videos of our airport hotels
There are hundreds of websites where you can book an airport hotel. But Holiday Extras are the only people who specialise in helping you get a better start to your holiday, so we're the only website that shows you just how each airport hotel really works when you're flying off the next morning. No-one else specialises in showing you how every airport hotel will fit into your holiday plans, so no-one else has hundreds of video reviews for you to check out. That's one of the reasons why, if you're thinking of an airport hotel, you should always come to us first and check out the hotel you want on our app or our website.
Holiday Extras Airport Hotels and Parking Video Guides
Our video reviews team tries, tests and recommends all of the holiday extras we offer. Just as you'd expect from the market leader in holiday extras, no-one else has visited and reviewed as many airport hotels, airport car parks and airport lounges as us.
