Parking tips

1 Reserve on time

A lot of the best quality and cheapest parking is booked quickly, meaning spaces may not be available or you have to pay more to park. Some providers, due to their low costs, will only take pre-booking as they have to ensure there is enough spaces. This is why we recommend to book in advance, around no later than 2 weeks before your departure flight date. By doing so you will be able to get the best choices over parking, as you will get the widest variety of parking providers available. Rather than choosing from what is left. Reserving with plenty of time before your travels will also ensure you of the lowest price possible.

2 Compare experiences of others

Booking online means not physically seeing the parking provider. This can be stressful as you want to ensure you get the best for your money. This is why we highly recommend reading the customer reviews about the parking providers. It will give you an insight into what customers thought of their experience with the provider. Letting you make a more informed decision over which parking provider to go with.

3 Leave on time

It can be quite stressful to travel. An important way in which you can reduce this stress and travel with more ease is by making sure you leave for the airport on time. This means giving yourself plenty of time to get to the parking, airport and then your flight. Therefore, it is important to double check how long it takes to get from the parking provider to the airport, as this has to be factored into your schedule; so their can be no surprises. The best advice would be to arrive at the parking provider 3 hours before your flight. However, if you are flying domestically this can be reduced to about 2 hours. This will make sure you don't have to rush and can travel more carefree.

4 Find the provider location easily

As there are many parking providers around the airport, it can be hard to find the right one and this can cause extra stress for the day of your travels. This is why we recommend for you to look at the exact address a few days before you are meant to park, and even put the address into your GPS the night before. This will help you save time and ensure you get to the car park easily.

We also suggest that you print out your booking confirmation as it hold all the important provider information, such as contact details and the specific address.

5 Mileage

Most parking providers take a picture or record your mileage when you first arrive. This is done for your own reassurance, to ensure that your car is returned to you exactly as it was left. If you find that your parking provider doesn't do this then we recommend for you to record the mileage yourself. You can, of course, also do this even if the provider also notes it down. This makes sure that you are protected and know the exact state of your car. It is incredibly unlikely that your car will be used whilst you are away, but it is always better to prepare in advance.

6 Upon return

To make sure your return goes as smoothly as your departure some planning is needed. Make sure, that if you didn't leave the keys with the provider, that you have your keys with you in a safe and accessible place. Once you land the best advice is to turn your phone on so you can immediately contact the provider. Then you can arrange for a pick up. This makes sure that you don't have to wait very long and you can get back to your car as soon as possible. It is also good to check that you have enough fuel or charge (for electric cars), so that you can get home safely and quickly.

7 Do not leave valuable properties in sight

Before leaving your car at the provider it is important to check that there are no valuables left behind. If you choose to leave belongings in your car then make sure they are completely out of sight. This helps to further ensure your cars safety as it won't become a target by thieves - although unlikely.
