Going on holiday? Pre-booking your airport parking is time-efficient, cheaper, easier and more secure for your car.

Like with most things in life, it's good to think ahead. Leaving things until the last minute can often cause more stress than it's worth. This is definitely the case when it comes to airport parking where booking ahead comes with numerous pros... and zero cons. Some of the many benefits include:

Better price

Turning up on the day and paying the 'gate rate' is always the most expensive option. Online pre-booking is far cheaper and in some cases you can save a staggering amount.

Always look for a 'best price guarantee'. Don't forget, the earlier you book, the cheaper the rate. But if you do remember the night before, fear not; some pre-booking rates are available to you just one hour before your arrival.

More secure

It's always a good idea to book through a recognised airport parking agent such as Holiday Extras – the UK's largest and most trusted airport parking booking company. Not only do they offer a choice of car parking options, they offer the cheapest airport parking – guaranteed.

Wider choice

With online bookings, you can compare all airport parking options from the comfort of your living room. This gives you the ability to choose airport parking that's closest to your terminal and look at Park & Ride options.

Peace of mind

During busy times of the year, such as the school holidays, car parks can fill up quicker than you can say "bon voyage". By pre-booking early on, you'll be guaranteed your very own space waiting for you when you arrive at the airport. Panic over!

Less hassle

Pre-booking your parking means you will save time faffing around looking at a map of the airport once you get there.

When you book in advance, you'll be given full instructions and directions so you'll know exactly where you need to be and what you need to do. A perfect, stress-free start to your holiday!
