Top 5 Tips for a Great Airport Parking Experience

FHR have put together their top 5 tips for a better airport experience whether you’re jetting away this Easter of already planning a summer break.

“As a leading travel services company with over 25 years experience FHR can help make booking airport parking a simple experience,” says Graham Greenaway, E-Marketing Manager for FHR.

Pre-book your airport parking

Booking airport parking in advance with FHR not only guarantees you a space in your chosen car park but can also save you up to 60% on the gate price you would pay if you just turned up to park. There would be nothing worse than driving up to the airport this Easter to discover that all the cheap car parks were full and you were forced to pay a premium price or risk missing your flight searching for a space.

Book Early

Many car parks offer a discount to encourage you to book early. You can make further savings by planning ahead and are usually offered a greater choice of options including Gatwick Long Stay South non-refundable saver options which is usually available to book up to 4-5 weeks before you are due to fly.

Most regular airport car parking options can be amended without charge up to 24 hours before you are due to park – great if your plans change.

Book Direct with

There are no credit card fees when you book direct with as opposed to using a comparison site. Plus you can make savings on future bookings by joining FHR’s mailing list and receiving reward vouchers.

Consider Off-Airport Parking

Many off-airport car parks are cheaper than the airport owned car parks and are located just minutes away from the terminal.

Smaller airport car parks tend to run transfers more frequently so you may find there is little difference in the time from car to terminal when you compare off-site with on-site parking – especially at larger airports where you’re still likely to need to use a transfer even if you book an on-site car park.

Upgrade to Meet and Greet Airport Parking

For greater convenience at most UK airports travellers can book a Meet and Greet Service whereby the car will be collected from outside the airport terminal, driven to the secure car park by an insured driver and then returned to the terminal ready for collection on return.

More airport car parks are now providing this service making it a more cost-effective option than many think.

FHR offer great deals on airport parking across the UK including Gatwick Airport Parking, Heathrow Parking as well as services at smaller UK airports such as Glasgow Airport Parking.
