How to get my car ready for the airport parking?

Preparing the car for airport parking

QUESTION:

I haven’t left my car at an airport before and was wondering if there was anything I needed to do in order to prepare my car for airport parking? Thanks.

ANSWER:

Normally you shouldn’t need to do anything special to your vehicle before you leave it at the airport.

– Ensure you closed all the windows, as there’s always a good chance of rain in the UK.
– Do not leave any valuables in your car.
– Don’t leave the interior light on (might seem obvious but it does happen!).
– Put the handbrake on, so it can’t roll away.
