Wherever you live, getting to your nearest airport can be tricky.

Major airports like Heathrow and Gatwick, for example, have many bus and rail connections from around the UK, but travelling on public transport laden with luggage is rarely a stress-free experience.

That’s why so many people, especially families and older travellers, choose to drive to the airport and park their cars their while they’re away. Nevertheless, airport parking can be expensive, sometimes prohibitively so. But rest assured that there are plenty of online deals on airport parking waiting for you – you just have to know where to find them.

Where to book UK airport parking

To book airport parking at major airports across the UK, make Holiday Extras your first port of call. Holiday Extras is a handy website that helps you book all the peripherals associated with your holiday – from airport parking to travel insurance – at great prices. On the site, you could save up to 60% on airport parking fees, and if you get a cheaper quote elsewhere you could get your booking for free. Holiday Extras also helps you establish between different types of airport parking – including park-and-ride services, on-airport parking and off-airport parking – so you can find an option that best suits your travel arrangements.

Another great website for online airport parking quotes is APH. APH has over 33 years’ experience in the travel industry and have won Best Airport Parking Company at the British Travel Awards for the last four years’ running. So you can be sure that you’ll get a high quality and secure service when you book with them. You’ll also get an instant quote online so there’s no waiting around, and you may have access to a customer discount if you’ve booked with them before.

To compare airport parking options at your departure airport, turn to Parking4Less. Simply enter the airport you’re flying from, the date you depart and the date you’ll collect your car to compare quotes. You’ll see prices for a range of different parking types, including valet, short-stay and long-stay, as well as airport hotel parking.

GoSimply.com and Thomas Cook offer great tools for comparing airport parking quotes online too. But if you want a more comprehensive take on airport parking, then MoneySavingExpert.com has the guide for you. Here, you’ll find tips on where to get the best discounts and even a few hints on nearby local parking facilities that you may be able to use instead.

Looking for airport hotel and parking deals

If your flight leaves early in the morning and your departure airport is a long drive away, you may be better off searching for airport hotel and parking packages. Staying in an airport hotel means that you’ll get to enjoy a good night’s sleep before your journey begins and all but eliminates the risk of you missing your flight. Time it right and you could get an airport hotel and parking deal that’s the same price – or even cheaper – than parking alone. Holiday Extras lets you compare deals on airport hotels with parking from a range of major hotel chains, including budget options like Travelodge and Premier Inn as well as more upmarket choices like Hilton and Sofitel.
