Top tips for a relaxed flight

Flying, whether for business or pleasure, can cause stress in even the most relaxed of travellers. Here at Airport Parking and Hotels, we have been helping our customers to get their journeys off to a hassle-free start since 1980 by offering comfortable airport hotels with parking and secure, convenient airport parking. The following tips should help to ensure your flight gets off with the perfect start.

Plan ahead

Perfect preparation can help get your trip off to a great start. This can mean anything from ensuring that all tickets and passports are secured safely in your hand luggage prior to leaving your home to making sure you know exactly how you are getting to the airport. For most people, the simplest – and cheapest – way to get to an airport is to drive. So when planning to drive to the airport, give yourself plenty of time for your journey; factoring in traffic, toll roads and, if necessary, coffee breaks. Also, plan your parking ahead to ensure your arrival goes smoothly.

Pre-book your parking

Booking your airport parking in advance is one of the simplest ways to ensure that your arrival at the airport is stress-free. We offer a range of options when it comes to airport car parks, whether you are looking for a bespoke ‘meet and greet’ service or a simple, no-frills space to safely leave your vehicle. From secure parking at Manchester airport to valet parking at Gatwick, we operate in 23 UK airports offering a range of services to suit the individual needs of our customers. Booking your parking with us is as hassle-free as the parking service itself. You can book online or by telephone and we will confirm everything back to you so all you need to think about is what to pack for your trip.


Make use of airport hotels

Many people choose to arrive at the airport the night before a flight, park up and stay over in a hotel, ensuring they wake up fresh and ready for the journey ahead, knowing their vehicle is safe. Airport hotels are a great way to unwind before a flight; whether your trip is for business or pleasure. A good night’s sleep in a comfy hotel bed is proven to make the next day’s flight much less stressful. Some hotels also offer fine dining or even spa facilities so that you can treat yourself to a good meal or a pampering session before boarding. Booking a hotel isn’t just something that helps before the outbound leg of a journey, though. Many people find it beneficial to book a hotel for when they land, enabling them to sleep off the flight and wake up feeling revitalised and ready to pick up their car from our secure parking bays before driving home.

By following these handy tips, your journey should be relatively stress-free and you’ll have the peace of mind that comes with knowing your vehicle is in good hands while you’re gone.
