Travel Tips

Parking at the Airport

When you’re planning a holiday, it can feel like there’s a never-ending list of things to do. From booking the flights and organising your travel insurance, to buying local guide books and packing your cases, there’s always something to organise. Getting to the airport is another thing you need to sort out – but it’s certainly not one that you should push to the bottom of the pile. Instead, when it comes to airport parking – whether it’s Glasgow Airport parking or parking at London Heathrow – the sooner you book, the better your chance of saving money.

When you book well in advance you’ll have a better chance of snapping up a special offer. Many airport parking operators regularly advertise discounts on advance bookings, sometimes offering deals like 10% or 15% off the cost of your airport parking. As well as the chance to save money, when you book in advance you’ll also benefit from greater availability. Let’s face it, the alternative is to turn up and trust to luck that there will be an available space which can be a risky, and often pricey, option.

When it comes to booking your space, you can book direct with the airport or by searching for a local airport parking operator. For instance, type ‘Glasgow Airport parking’ into a search engine and scour the local agents (make sure they’re reputable ones!) to see which offers the best price. You can also choose a tour operator, like Thomas Cook, to find a suitable airport parking arrangement. In fact, Thomas Cook provides a fast quote system with the best prices, and a high level of secure parking too – so it may be worth going direct to their website first.

Get that done as son as possible, and it’s one more thing to tick off the list, bringing your holiday that little bit closer.
