Wow, has it really been over a year since this blog post was published? It has, because Airport Parking Shop turned 12 in October! It’s been 12 fabulous years and even better it’s now been over a year since we relaunched our website with a brand new look.
To celebrate, we are going to be blogging every day in November here on APS! Look forward to tips, location guides, fun trivia, travelling mishaps, travel advice, and so much more. We are really excited about #Blogvember, so we hope you are too!
It’s been 12 years of airport fun, but in the last year since we launched our new look the team have been hard at work making it the best experience possible. Read More

As we celebrate the 11th anniversary of the launch of Airport Parking Shop, we look back at the significant changes that have taken place in its 11th year.
It all began in 2003, the year when the music charts were dominated by the now-classic “In da Club” by 50 Cent and fashion boomed with fedora hats and popped collars. This was the year Airport Parking Shop was first launched, as one of the pioneers of the upcoming trend of comparing… pretty much everything.
Little did we know that 11 years later we would still be enjoying doing what we know best: getting the best airport parking deals for our users.

It’s the 10th Anniversary of Airport Parking Shop. This means, ten years ago, in September 2003, The Times named Airport Parking Shop the ‘Website of the Week’ introducing the new concept to their readers: ‘…Here’s a simple idea: an online price comparison of four airport car park providers at 22 airports in the UK.’
If we could share a slice of our 10 year birthday cake, we’d first of all do it with our customers, people who have chosen to make one of the whopping 1.4 million bookings through Airport Parking Shop in the last decade, many of them returning to our website to compare prices over and over again.
Unfortunately there’s no age conversion tool (yet!) that converts a website’s age to human years, or perhaps dog years, or hippopotamus years for that matter. But here at Fubra Limited, the company behind the Airport Parking Shop, we do believe that 10 years online is a pretty significant period of time, especially in the ever-changing and fast-paced travel industry.
Comparing travel prices from various providers online has evolved from being just a novelty thing to a necessary action taken by any cost-savvy traveller of 2013. As more airport parking providers were added to our quote search, budget airlines offered more and more tempting destinations and countries worked hard in attracting new explorers, we always felt it was key for someone researching their next trip to get a consistent and hassle-free parking quote. Which is partly why we’ve kept the same style and the same process of quote search and booking process on Airport Parking Shop for many years. Read More
