Tip 1: Always pre-book your airport parking

If you see a poor soul posting money into a machine at the airport car park, do them a favour and mention Holiday Extras.
Tip 2: Book early
What's the difference? Up to 60%. Many car parks offer advance purchase prices and the earlier you book the more likely you are to find them. If you do find one, book straight away because these prices are withdrawn as you get closer to the departure date, and are subject to availability.

Tip 5: Choose off-airport parking
Airport parking that is located outside the airport boundary can be significantly cheaper but offers a similar service. Ironically, the transfer times for off-airport car parks can sometimes be less than the on-airport transfer times, due to their location, so make sure you check.
Tip 6: Add cancellation protection to your booking
A weeks airport parking can on average be up to approximately £60, however for just 99p extra you can cancel your booking and get your money back as long as it is in line with our Cancellation Protection. If you would like to protect your booking then please ensure you select this option.
Tip 7: Add a hotel to your parking booking
At certain times of the year, especially August and September, parking packaged with a hotel can be up to £20 cheaper than parking on its own; you can compare these prices during the booking process. If you have an early start, staying over night at a hotel takes all the stress out of getting to the airport on time.
Tip 8: 24 hour pricing
This means you are always looking at an up-to-date price for every product. If you have a quote from a different date, try the same search again to double check if the price has changed since you last looked.

Tip 10: Book with a debit card

Why you should choose Airport parking over getting a lift? 1. Hassle free: Who likes hassling their friends for a lift? Airport parking costs only a little more, and save you from asking favours of family and friends. 2. You're in control: Don't leave room for mistakes, stay in control of your route and get to the airport on time. 3. Get home quicker: Simply step off the plane, collect your bags and drive home. It couldn't be easier. 4. Let your friends lay in: Because driving to the airport at 4am can't be much fun if you're not going on holiday.

Different types of parking
It is important to know what different types of airport parking services Holiday Extras has to offer. The list below provides an explanation of the service/facilities for each of the different types of airport parking available if you book with Holiday Extras.
Park and Ride - The most common parking service at airports
Just as with city centre park and rides the service will pick you up and return you to your car which will stay securely in the car park.
One way Meet and Greet - Offers a car collection service on solely your arrival or departure from the airport
Unlike standard Meet and Greet, this service only offers a collection one way. You can either drive straight to the airport and your car be collected or on your return be met with your car.
Valet parking - Removes the need for you to park your car
Instead, everything operates from one arrivals/departures area. When you arrive here a driver will park your car for you while you catch the transfer bus to the airport. When you return to the car park your car will be brought to you at the arrivals/departure area.
Hotels with parking - A great way to relieve you of timing and traffic issues
You can stay at an Airport Hotel so that the next morning you are just minutes away from the airport. You will then be offered either: a transfer service to the airport straight from the hotel, where your car will stay for the duration of your holiday or the use of a nearby secured parking facility and an alternative transfer to the airport.
Meet and Greet parking - The most convenient option for parking at the airport
This service means you are met at the terminal by a driver who will collect your car and take it to one of our approved secure car parks, leaving you free to check-in and when you return, your car will be delivered back to you at the terminal. Meet and Greet parking is great for golfers, surfers and skiers or anyone with loads of luggage. Services vary, so be sure to read the details.
Top Tip: If you're traveling as a large family then the best option is the Meet and Greet service that we have available at most airports. The service will help to relieve some of the pressure when you arrive at the airport making the start of your journey easy going.
On-airport parking - Is parking that is within the airport boundary
Despite being within the airport it is sensible to check the transfer times and distance to the terminals, as airports can be deceptively big. In general the closer you are to the terminal the more you pay for the convenience.
Off-airport parking - Is parking that is located outside the airport boundary
Despite being outside the airport boundaries it is worth checking the transfer times from these car parks as, very occasionally, they are closer than on-airport facilities.
Holiday parking - Is for our customers traveling during the busy holiday periods
Usually defined by the period of peak holiday time from March until October, Holiday Parking caters for anybody flying from a UK airport for their vacation.
What's the price difference?
Check out the example below, the prices shown are based on 3 different types of parking services over a duration of 8 days at Luton airport on 20th January 2010.
Off-airport parking - £49.00
Return Greet parking - £62.00
On-airport parking - £68.30
Hotel with Parking - £116.47
Meet and Greet parking - £125.00
Choose the right car park
Another way of saving money on airport parking is by choosing the right car park to suite your length of stay. Check below to find out which car parks are best for you.
Short-Term (1 to 2 days) - Check the price online but sometimes its cheaper to just turn up at the airport and pay the gate price
Mid-Term (3 to 5 days) - Pre-book your airport parking with Holiday Extras and you will save money, don't just turn up at the airport
Long-Term (5 + days) - Pre-book your airport parking with Holiday Extras and you will save money, don't just turn up at the airport
