If you get it wrong, airport parking can be quite expensive and give you the worst start to your Asia vacation. I mean, no one wants to be driving on the outskirts of an airport like a wacky racer trying to find a car park that has room, only to find out that on your return your car is a pub car park.
Make sure you pre-book in advance
Pre-booking your airport parking can help you save a huge amount compared to just commuting during the day: sometimes up to 60%! It also guarantees you space in advance, as the car parks fill up during the busy summer month.
In general, the sooner you book, the cheaper it is! Many people leave it till the last minute and end up paying too much. Airport parking prices can vary between products and months. Try to book as early as possible as the prices go up as the car parks get booked up.
Choose the product that suits your needs
Airport parking is not always as easy as it seems. There are a few different types of parking to choose from, so you must book the most suitable parking to avoid any unwanted mishaps.
Parks and Ride – Best for Low Prices
After you park your car you are transferred to the airport on a shuttle bus. These car parks are a bit further from airport terminals but can help you save a lot of money. Book this option if your budget is small and you want to save a few pounds.
Meet and Greet – Best for Convenience
With Meet and Greet Service you will be met from the car park at the terminal by a fully insured driver who helps you unload your luggage before taking your car to a secure car park. Upon your return they will meet you again outside the terminal with your car, ready for your return home.
Onsite – Best for being closest to the airport
Onsite parking is usually operated by the airport itself and maybe the most expensive option. The benefits come through the convenience of having your car close to your terminal, so book this option if you want to avoid the shuttle or go hiking to the check-in desk.
