The Best UK Airport Car Parks
Holiday Extras offers car parks that are on site at the airport and off airport at 24 UK airports. You won't find a better deal when you pre-book a parking space at any of the 36 secured airport car parks.Security
All car parks, which we are associated with, have 24 hour manned security and high security fencing. The Chief Police Officers Association has accredited most of the car parks for security, which requires a rigorous annual inspection and CCTV is now widely used.Technology
The internet and use of data bases has transformed the industry. Prior to computers the number of cars in the car park was calculated on a manual basis which when you consider that cars are arriving and departing every day at different times and with varying lengths of stay was a nightmare to calculate. To add to this customers would be forward booking for their summer holidays as far back as January and a considerable number of cancellations would arise. The car parks in those days virtually hand counted at the beginning of the week and then simply added and subtracted for the coming week.Unfortunately outgoing flights pick up your returning customers and whilst figures at midnight may balance inevitably at stages throughout the day cars were left in lanes until they could be parked away later in the day.Now days computers can take into account of traffic flows on virtually an hourly basis although delayed flights can ruin the best-laid plans.Damage to Vehicles
Customers using airport car parks are vulnerable to the capabilities of other members of the public. Cars are continually arriving and departing the airport car park and clearly the airport cannot be held responsible for damage to a car or even theft of a vehicle.Most off airport car parks; park the cars themselves and that results in a substantial reduction in accidents. The staff are used to parking cars in tight spaces and with no other movements to worry about damage is minimal.
