When is the best time to book airport parking?

Planning a trip away involves a number of different considerations including booking the flights, making a hotel reservation, saving up spends, planning activities and checking that someone will be around to check on your home and take care of your pets while you’re away. Another important consideration is ensuring that your car will be parked safely at the airport without incurring any extortionate fees.

Although you could consider parking your vehicle at a nearby car park, the most secure place would be at the airport you’re flying from. It would also be advisable to pre-book parking as a way of guaranteeing a spot when you arrive on the day. However, if you want to get the best value for your money, you may be wondering when the best time to book airport parking would be.

In this blog, we offer guidance on booking airport parking and explain whether booking early or late could be cheaper.

The duration of your stay will also impact the price you pay, and if you’re going away for a week or longer, it could be something that you will need to factor into your spending.

Many people book in advance as it can not only save money, but also guarantee that they have a parking space at the airport when they come to catch their plane.
