Which? Airport Parking? Avoid &”Ridiculously High&” Prices With These Tips

A recent survey conducted by Which? Car magazine concluded that UK airport parking prices are “ridiculously high”, but they didn’t exactly give the travelling public the full story.
It’s one thing to say airport parking costs are inflated, then compare a “premium” parking service at Heathrow to a fairly standard “park and ride” service in Manchester.  The truth is, there is a wide range of options available, offering everything from meet and greet service (where you are met by a chauffeur at the terminal upon your departure and return) to budget off-airport parking where transfers to and from the airport are provided.
So, sure, you can pay a high price for airport parking if money is no object, but these days most people are looking for the best deal available.  It’s easy to find if you know where to look.
Your first stop should be a price-comparison website, because let’s face it, that’s where you’re going to find the best deal quickly.  In the case of airport parking, let’s be honest, there’s a glut of websites vying for your attention, but there are too few companies who offer you a real comparison.  Try to avoid websites that only compare their own car parks, or only compare a small selection of available parking services.  A site like gosimply.com compares not only all of the top sellers, but also clearly displays the actual prices for each seller including any credit card surcharges, if applicable.
Secondly, a great price doesn’t mean much if the service isn’t up to par.   Find as many car park reviews as you can for any company you’re considering, because “low cost” doesn’t always equal “value”.
Lastly, check the terms and conditions.  Are there any fees involved should you need to cancel?  What about if you need to change your travel dates?  Each car park supplier has their own terms and you will want to know what they are prior to booking any services.
The bottom line is, yes, parking at the airport can be quite expensive, but it doesn’t have to be.  With a little research, you can leave your car in safe hands and get on with the important business of a relaxing and fun holiday.
