Holiday season is one of the busiest times of year to travel. In fact, Gatwick had more than 5.7 passengers through their check-in desks and duty-free outlets this summer alone. The last weekend of July saw more than 77,000 people jet off on holidays from their runways alone.
Holidays can be stressful in themselves; from arranging flights, accommodation, packing to even getting to the airport, all of these holiday plans can cause a lot of frustration and tension - not a great way to start your time abroad.
To help make your travel plans smoother, why not reserve an airport parking space?
Most of us tend to focus on the airport procedures, packing and sorting stuff out at home for when we're away rather than thinking about how we're going to get to the airport or how much time it is likely to take. More often than not we end up asking for a last-minute lift from a friend or a member of the family to the airport.
Airport parking ensures you will be able to park at the airport and get to and from your terminal quickly. The stress and general flustering that surrounds worrying about missing your flight doesn't exist, as you don't have to hail a taxi or get onto any other form of transportation during the busiest time of the year - you can get to the airport exactly when you need to.
Another perk of airport parking is the fee. With the economy in its current state, people are trying to save money wherever and whenever they can, especially if they're planning to go on holiday! An excellent way to do this and simultaneously avoid that hefty taxi fare or paying your mate for petrol money, is by reserving a space at an airport car park. Everyone is more comfortable travelling in their own car, so why not just drive to the airport, park and then breeze on through to check-in?
Take control of your travel! You won't feel as stressed and at the same time, you'll be saving more money that you can use to enjoy yourself whilst on holiday.
