With the Christmas holidays just around the corner, many people are starting to think about travelling to see friends and family overseas. Flights, hotels, gifts, food … there’s an endless list of things to buy and arrange. And yet airport parking is often overlooked in the holiday planning phase. Many people skip booking their parking in advance, only to find themselves forking over way too much money, and spending the precious few hours before their flight endlessly searching for a spot.

Thankfully, it doesn’t have to be this way! Read our handy guide for stress-free airport car parking over the holidays, and splurge on your trip instead of your parking spot!

1. Book early to take advantage of the best deals

Parking options at the airport can fill up very quickly, especially during peak travel times such as major holidays. As car parks start to fill up, they increase the prices to match the demand. You can save up to 40% by booking at least one month in advance. Flyparks makes it easy to book in advance and save money. It only takes two minutes to find a great deal and secure your spot.

2. Compare prices so you never have to pay full price

When you book online in advance, you’re able to compare multiple parking options and choose the one that suits you best. Off-site car parks usually offer the best deals and can be incredibly cheap.There are also a range of high-quality options that won’t break the bank, which come with extras such as car washing services and valet parking. By booking online you can easily compare lots of different options at the same time, for the lowest price.

3. Choose a reputable company

Be careful to avoid car parking companies that could be trying to scam you with hidden fees and untrustworthy practices. You don’t want to return from vacation to find your car damaged, stored somewhere unsafe, or even driven without your permission. Flyparks is committed to only promoting car parking options that are guaranteed to be safe and secure, so that our customers have peace of mind when they’re away.

4. Don’t ignore safety

Security and safety concerns are always something to consider when leaving your car in a long-term parking lot. Flyparks makes it easy to decide which parking option will be the safest for your car. You can choose between car parking facilities that offer 24-hour security, vehicle inspection, surveillance cameras, patrols, safety fence, and/or barrier.

5. Check the opening and closing hours of the car park

The worst feeling after an overseas holiday is getting off the plane only to discover that you cannot retrieve your car. Make sure you compare your flight times with the opening and closing times of the car park that you book with. Most car parks are open 24/7, 7 days a week, but it’s always worth double-check before booking.

Now all that is left to do is enjoy your trip! We hope that you have a stress-free travel experience and make it to the gate on time!
