out-smart airport parking

As schools are able to pick their own holiday dates, arranging the annual family holiday can sometimes be tricky! Especially when you find out that this year the varying dates for Easter holiday breaks actually falls over three weeks! (Last year, it was four!) This varies by county too, so if you have a child in primary school in one county, and one in secondary school in another, picking a date to go away can get even more complicated.

So not only do you have the cost and timing of your holiday fluctuating, your parking may end up being a bit more costly, too. With this in mind, we took a look at some of the UK’s busiest airports to see how you can avoid paying too much for your airport parking. Read More

Off-Airport Car Parks

If you are going away for more than a day or two, it is usually the most cost effective option to book long stay parking, especially if you book in advance. However, have you considered booking off-airport parking? Many people first think of the cowboy operators who have hit the headlines for parking your car in a field, but this is just not the case for most of the providers. Read More

Save time and money

We know that when it comes to parking at the airport, most people pre-book their parking, want it to be cost-effective, are concerned about the location of the car park, and that most people pick Long Stay parking as their parking option of choice.

Long stay parking may seem the savvy choice – you’re going away for more than a few days and you’re willing to put up with a transfer to the airport. In most cases, the Official Long Stay car park may be more reasonable than Short Stay parking or Meet and Greet and therefore it all makes sense… or so you think! Read More


Pre-booking vs. turning up at the gate: 60% savings

Parking written on the road

Passengers flying from airports in Northern Ireland could save up to 60% by pre-booking parking at long stay airport car parks instead of turning up on the day and paying at the gate, the Consumer Council has found.

The Consumer Council, an independent consumer organisation focused on Northern Ireland consumers, recently conducted a research where they compared the on-site long stay parking tariffs of the three NI airports (City of Derry Airport, Belfast International Airport and Belfast City Airport) and found that “pre-booking car parking came out on top as the best value for money”.

Commenting on the results of the research, Jenny Robinson from the Consumer Council said: “The savings for booking car parking in advance can be significant. What is obvious is that consumers aren’t getting the best price possible when they pay at the gate”.

The research shows that for a 10-day stay a whopping £33 can be saved at George Best Belfast City Airport, £36 at Belfast International Airport and £39 at City of Derry Airport by booking car parking in advance.

Currently, Airport Parking Shop allows holidaymakers to compare prices at one NI airport, Belfast International. According to our recent research, the lowest available parking option at this airport hasn’t changed compared to Summer 2013, and was £45 for a 2-week stay in August 2014.
