Booking airport hotels with parking for your holiday

If you’re organising a holiday, booking flights and a hotel is only the start of the process. You’ll also need to figure out how to get from your home to the airport and back again, and this can be tricky. If you’re taking a 7am flight from Heathrow, for example, and you live in Southampton, how will you get to the airport on time?

That’s why airport hotels are so convenient. Get there the night before your flight and you’ll enjoy a great night’s sleep just a stone’s throw from your check-in desk. Many airport hotels have deals on parking too, so you can leave your car while you’re away and pick it up on your return to drive home.

The best sites for booking airport hotels with parking

Looking for airport hotel and parking deals in the UK? Holiday Extras has a range of options to choose from, including 23 Gatwick Airport hotels, 25 Heathrow Airport hotels and 19 Manchester Airport hotels. To get a quote, you’ll need to specify the rooms you want, your check-in date and when you expect to pick your car up. And if you find a cheaper quote elsewhere, you could get a complimentary stay.

With 33 years’ experience, APH is another leader in airport parking and hotels. APH has won Best Airport Parking Company at the British Travel Awards for the last four years running, so you can be sure of a high quality and secure parking service. They have a flexible cancellation policy too, so you may be able to make last minute changes if necessary. also has a great range of airport hotel and parking packages at all major UK airports, including Gatwick, Heathrow, Stansted, Manchester and Glasgow. So wherever you’re flying from, you should find a hotel and parking deal that suits your arrangements.

Alternatively, if you’re on a very tight budget, check low cost hotel chains like Travelodge and Premier Inn to find out whether they’ve got hotels near the airport you’re flying from. Book several months in advance and you could get a great deal on both accommodation and parking for your holiday.

Other airport parking options

If you’ve found an airport hotel that you love but it doesn’t have a parking package to suit you, there are other options for leaving your car at the airport. Drivers with RAC membership, for example, can save up to 25% on airport parking. You can also compare airport hotels and parking deals with the AA, for 20% off parking and 10% off airport lounges.

You should also check if the airline you’re flying with has any exclusive passenger deals on airport hotels or airport parking – especially if you’re a member of their air miles scheme. Virgin Atlantic, for example, run Purple Parking – sign up and a staff member will park your car for you when you get to the airport. When you get back from your holiday, you car will be waiting for you to drive right home.
