Airport parking

Airport parking isn’t cheap. Once you start multiplying a daily rate up by the length of your stay it soon adds up. There are several ways to help get the best airport parking deal to suit your needs. This article reviews how you can find the best airport parking deals quickly.

When looking for airport parking the areas that I recommend you check on the web are:

  1. Airport parking comparison sites
  2. Independent parking operators sites
  3. Hotel parking deals

It’s always advisable to check these in advance, as turning up at the airport is likely to be the most expensive option. This would be OK, if you are on expenses and the boss is paying, but not a wise move if it’s your money.

When comparing airport parking take into account that some parking operators charge a higher fee as they include additional services such as a valet of your car or free shuttle services.

Also be aware that there have been reported cases of some airport parking companies keeping cars stored in fields miles from airport and drivers treating cars poorly when transporting them. It’s worth searching the web for reviews on any companies you’re unfamiliar with before booking.

These different methods of finding airport parking deals are covered below in more depth.

1. Airport parking comparison sites

There are several sites that specialise in searching for cheap airport parking deals.  Sites I particularly recommend are:

airport-parking-shop Good all round comparison site
Holidayextras The biggest site, which offers a price guarantee
APH Good for meet and greet

2. Independent parking operators sites

Many airports have small operators not covered by the comparison sites. Try using a search engine such as Google to find them.

One site I liked was Parkatmyhouse that allows individuals to sell the space on their driveways. Being private adverts the prices and services provided vary. Reviews are given so you can gauge the quality of the service provided.

3. Hotel parking deals

Many hotels near airports offer deals that combine accommodation and parking. So if you’ve an early flight and need to stay overnight this option is often worth investigating. Some provide free transfers while others may charge. Sites I can particularly recommend for this are:

Holidayextras The biggest site, which offers a price guarantee
Superbreaks Good for Hotels stopover + parking

For an example of how airport parking suppliers compare have a look at a comparison exercise I performed for airport parking at Stansted airport.
