If you’re planning to fly from any part of the UK, airport parking is worth considering.
When carrying a lot of luggage, dropping the car off at your airport parking point, and getting the shuttle to the airport, is the most stress free way to start your holiday.
I’ve based these choices on reputation, customer satisfaction ratings, and price.

Park and Go Airports: Online booking for over 100 car parks at 23 Airports across the UK.

FLYING FROM GLASGOW OR EDINBURGH…
Glasgow Airport Parking: What could be more convenient if flying from Glasgow? Drive into the airport, park the car, and that’s it.
Flying Scot Glasgow: I have used this one, as I always fly from Glasgow. Five minutes from the airport, efficient service, they’ve never let me down.
Flying Scot Edinburgh: I’ve never used the Edinburgh facility, but friends of mine have, and it comes highly recommended, with great prices on offer.
PLEASE NOTE: I have specifically listed the Scottish parking options above, because those who exclusively serve Scottish airports usually offer more competitive prices.
SHOP AROUND FOR THE BEST DEALS….
The prices for airport parking and/or hotels can vary quite a bit, so this is something that’s definitely worth shopping around for. And I would recommend you do just that.
TIP: I personally wouldn’t go with any of the airports or airlines that offer parking facilities. They tend to be more expensive than the regular parking companies.
MORE REASONS TO USE THESE FACILITIES….
I have used airport parking on many occasions in the past, and most recently, I use it EVERY time I’m flying. Going away for a week, it can be as cheap as taxi fares, saves so much time and hassle, and it’s really convenient, especially for a family with children.
Most parking facilities are quite close to the airport, so ideally, you can expect, or at least you should look for, a shuttle journey that takes no more than 5 – 15 minutes.
If you have an early morning flight, it may be wise to book car parking plus a hotel for the night. At least you’ll have a little more sleep and hopefully, feel more refreshed.
If visiting Scotland there’s ‘money savers’ worth looking at, like free entry attractions and discount travel passes to help your money go further.
