How To Find The Best Airport Parking Deals
Airport parking is more and more popular among holidaymakers as it can be an affordable and convenient way to travel to and from the airport (without having to rely on friends and family for lifts).
There are so many options out there now, so how do you go about choosing the best airport parking out there?
As the experts in the best airport parking deals, we’ve decided to share some of our top tips with you to help you park with the best for less this year!
1. Book direct
We all know that the best hotel deals can be found by booking direct with the venue itself. That’s a no-brainer, right? Yet how many of us have thought about doing the same for an airport car park? Most airport car park operators can afford to offer customers the very best prices on the market when they book directly. Why? Because when you book with them directly, they don’t need to pay hefty commissions to booking agent websites, so they can pass that saving onto you, the customer.
Some car parking companies offer loyalty schemes to regular customers, too. So once you’ve booked directly with an airport car park once, you could well be in for a series of amazing savings.
2. Sign up to emails
The best discounts can always be found inside a car parking company’s sales emails. Airport car parking operators love to reward their loyal customers with regular discounts. And the only way to find these deals is by being on a company’s mailing list. Once you’re on the list, you could save anything from 5% to 50% depending on the time of year. Don’t miss out!

3. Get social
When you follow a company on social media you’re often first in line to hear about great deals and discounts. It’s also a great way to stay updated on important information ahead of your trip. For example, many car parks will post traffic info, airport updates or weather news on their social feeds.

4. Check credentials
Searching online for cheap airport parking can bring up some real bargains. However, they can be too good to be true. Plenty of rogue operators are out there, so how do you check if a car park can be trusted?
Park Mark is the quickest and easiest way to do this. In order to qualify for the Park Mark certification, an airport car park must undergo a strict risk assessment and have all the necessary safety measures and management procedures in place. Plus, Park Mark is awarded to the actual car park, not the company, so if you see this accreditation you know it’s a legitimate car park where your car will be looked after.
5. Book in advance
The best prices for airport parking can always be found by booking in advance. As car parks fill up closer to travel dates, prices do rise accordingly so if you leave it too late, you will pay more. To get the best deal for your airport parking, we recommend booking as soon as you book your flights, or at least a month in advance of your trip.
