There are many ways to get to the airport and while they each have their advantages, it’s really hard to beat driving yourself and parking at the airport. Each airport has their own configuration for travelers who prefer this method, but whether you want car parking Gatwick, Heathrow or Stansted (among others) you can be sure you’ll be able to get to the airport, leave your car and enjoy your trip knowing it is in good hands.
Take a look at these reasons below as to why airport parking may be right for you!
Leave When You Want
As anyone who has taken a shuttle or a train to the airport knows, it’s a huge pain having to rush and get ready well ahead of when you actually need to leave just to be sure you get there in time to meet the shuttle/train. On top of that, you also have to worry if it will be on schedule or have technical difficulties that may result in you missing your flight altogether. It’s a stress you’d rather do without! When you drive yourself and use airport parking, you can leave when you are good and ready and aren’t impacted by a friend who is running late or missing it altogether if you yourself are a bit tardy.
Decompress in Private
Whether it’s the trip to the airport or the journey back home, sometimes it’s nice to just have some down time to yourself without worrying about a bunch of strangers getting on your nerves. You can crank the music or drive in absolute silence; stop off somewhere and grab a bite to eat or break the speed limit to get home as fast as you can – it’s really up to you! When you spend a few hours crammed into an airport cabin with hundreds of others, having that time to yourself can be a life saver!
Many Options Available
Airport park and fly services have many different options open to you depending on the length of time of your travel, the airport in question and the time of year. There is short term parking for those quick trips or if you are driving someone to the airport and want to see them off, but there’s also long term where the rates a bit lower and your car is a bit off site. Depending on your needs, there’s a parking option for you.
Tailored to Your Needs
The biggest benefit of driving yourself and/or others to the airport is it’s a more personal way to travel. Shuttles and trains are great if you live in a major hub and have these options open to you, but if you live in the country or not on a major route, it may end up being more of a hassle than it is worth to make use of public transit options. You can rest assured that your car is in a safe place and will be waiting for you upon your return.
