Compare Airport Parking – pick the right option for you

Today we are blessed with choices, it’s never been easier to find the right parking space for you. There are long-stay and short-stay car parks, park and ride, valet services, meet and greet, even nearby hotels opening up their car parks to excited travellers. They each have their pros and cons; the important thing is to consider which option works best for you.

Proximity to Airport Average Transfer Time Cost Per Day
On Airport 2.5 km 4.5 minutes £7.78
Park & Ride 8.3 km 6.9 minutes £4.60
Meet & Greet Airport Hotel 5.3 km 6.3 minutes £6.74
Carpark 5.3 km 6.3 minutes £8.26

Let’s take a look at the different options.

  • Airport on-site car parking – these are perfect for their convenience. Most of them will be located in close proximity to terminals (just make sure you find the one near the terminal you’re flying from, especially at the larger airports) so it is easy to park up and amble to your check-in desk. However, this convenience sometimes does come with extra cost, but you don’t have top worry about a shuttle bus transfer to the airport.
  • Park and ride – these are usually a bit farther out but a shuttle service will save your legs from any pre-holiday fatigue by picking you up and dropping you off. These are normally cheaper options too. Oh, and every UK airport has 24-hour security, so while it might feel a little unnerving walking away from your car in the middle of nowhere, it is being looked after.
  • Meet and greet (sometimes called valet parking) – this is one way to arrive in style. Drive up, leave your car with one of the valets, and take the first steps to your holiday. The cars are driven to a secure location and many of the airports offer guarantees on your car returning to you in the same condition; many even take photos so they can check it is looked after properly.
  • Hotel parking – this is perfect if you’re travelling far to the airport and you want an extra night before you fly. Many people on early flights with a long way to go find this solution to be perfect. Obviously the extra night comes at a cost, but it means your holiday starts earlier and there is no early morning rush to the airport.

That’s just a snapshot of the options available, clearly there is more to consider when it comes to booking. For instance, the type of security employed by the airport, do they have disabled access if you need it, what is the cancellation policy. All these things should be considered alongside proximity and cost.

Cheap Airport Parking

If cost is the deciding factor, then there are a number of ways to save some extra holiday spending money. The earlier you book your airport parking the better the chance you’ll get a discount. With ParkCloud you could save up to 60% vs. the on the day rate.

But also think about what you need. Do you have enough time to get there a bit earlier so you can park farther away in a cheaper option like a park & ride car park? Have you got a lot of luggage, will means you might be better off with an onsite airport car park so you don’t have to lift 7 cases onto the shuttle bus? Ask yourself these types of questions to make sure you choose the best option to suit your needs.

ParkCloud can then help you find deals at some of the UK’s leading airports.
