A busy airport

Here at Airport Parking Shop, we are always trying to supply you with ways to make your journey as easy, stress-free and cheap as possible! As keen travellers ourselves, we do understand that jet-setting can actually be a hugely anxious experience – from getting to the airport safely and on-time, right through to boarding the correct flight before the gate closes.

How can we make this experience more enjoyable and less stressful, I hear you ask? Okay, so we’re not admitting we can completely take out the worry and distress of travelling (after all, we’re not miracle workers) but we do have a really simple idea which we definitely think you should consider.

One of the biggest changes Britain could face after last month’s referendum decision to Brexit the EU is the cost of our annual holidays soaring. We could see the cost of flights and currency exchange rates rocket due to the declining pound value which may mean Britain sees the rise of the staycation; that we opt to holiday here, rather than venture overseas.

Travelling with just your hand luggage

If you’ve booked flights in the last, well, few years, you’ll know that on top of the cost of your flight, many airlines now charge you to check a bag into the hold – my recent experience with a budget airline saw the cost of a 20kg bag cost £50 EACH WAY!!
