How do you find the best airport parking for your walking holiday? In this review we look at a free to use comparison website that can help you make the right choice.

Imagine this: you’ve found your perfect walking holiday abroad in Europe. You’ve booked the holiday (yay!) and you’ve arranged a flight to get there. So now you’re thinking about getting to the airport…

Many people prefer to use their own vehicle instead of public transport, especially when they’re taking things like walking poles and hiking boots. If you’re planning to use your own car to get to the airport, you’ll have to find somewhere to safely park it while you’re away. Airport parking is the obvious choice, but how do you find the best airport carpark?

The challenge of finding airport parking for your car

Finding the best place to park your car when you’re flying can be tricky…

When you begin your search for airport parking at your UK departure airport, it can feel a bit daunting. There are many different options, especially for larger airports like Heathrow, Liverpool and Manchester.

On top of that, prices vary depending on when you book and what type of service you want. And you also need to consider whether you are looking for onsite or off-site parking, Meet and Greet parking or Park and Ride services. With so much to consider, it can feel impossible to find the ideal parking option for your trip.

Comparison websites to help out

With a comparison website you can easily get an overview of the different options and prices that are available. This makes the process of finding the perfect parking spot for your car a lot easier.

Luckily, there are now airport parking comparison websites to help you out. These sites have a big, up-to-date database of all airport parking options that you can use to compare offers and find the most suitable option for your trip.

An example of a good website we like using is Parkhero. Their comparison platform for airport car parking in the UK helps you find the best parking options.

What I like is that they’ve made their site very user-friendly and it takes just minutes to find what you’re looking for and finalise your booking. So whether you are looking for Manchester Airport Park and Ride services, Bristol valet parking or on-site parking at Leeds Bradford, Parkhero has you covered.

Plus, unlike some other comparison platforms, Parkhero don’t charge a booking fee and you do not need to create an account. So it’s quick and easy.

How it works

You simply need to choose your airport, enter the days of your trip and hit search. You’re then taken to a comprehensive results page where all your parking options will be ranked by price from the cheapest to the most expensive.

You can choose to rank by distance to the airport or by customer review and can add further filters such as Meet and Greet parking or whether there are charging stations available for electric vehicles.

All these options are really great, because it means you can very quickly find the best option for you. So if you have lots of luggage you can find parking closer to the airport. Or, if you’d like your walking holiday to start a little bit sooner (and save some money), you can choose parking that’s further away from the airport.

You make your booking from the results page directly or you can click on the product for a detailed description of the parking facilities. And as you don’t need to go through the hassle of making an account first, you can make your booking in less than 5 minutes (and continue doing something more interesting, like maybe looking at walking holiday photos).

Booking airport parking through a comparison website allows you to save time and money on your walking holiday and feel secure that you have support every step of the way.

I like that Parkhero have done their best to ensure that booking parking is as simple as possible. They have reliable parking providers and also present customer reviews of services so that you can go through other people’s experiences.
