Holiday Extras Meet and Greet
Since I can remember now, we’ve been booking our airport parking via Holiday Extras. It’s pretty much a no-brainer for us.
We usually book a hotel at the same time too actually. The brilliant thing is that the price for hotel and parking combined is often the same and sometimes less than just paying for the parking for the duration of your holiday.
Invariably holiday flights aren’t at the most convenient times so booking a hotel the night before your flight is by far the least stressful option. Having a glass of wine and a nice meal in a decent hotel the night before you go on holidays is significantly more relaxing than bolting down the M4 at 3 in the morning to get to the airport to park in time before checking in for your flight. Staying in a hotel the night before means you don’t have to worry about traffic jams and getting to the airport in time. Way less stress!
Meet & Greet
Holiday Extras Meet & Greet has worked for us on loads of occasions now. Sometimes we drive up to the terminal and a driver meets us to take our car away to park. Other times, we’ve had to drive to the hotel where the driver meets us to drive the car off to the car park. When you land, you just call them from the Baggage Hall and they tell you where to meet them with your car. It’s painless, easy and usually a good price.
We have genuinely never had a problem with booking a hotel and parking with Holiday Extras and as far as we’re concerned we never really look elsewhere.
Back in May we flew to Barcelona from Birmingham Airport. As the flight was early morning we opted to stay at The Hilton Metropole the night before. In the morning then we simply drove straight up to the terminal to the Meet & Greet area, where we left our car in the very capable hands of the Holiday Extras team. Within 5 minutes we were dropping our baggage off. It’s a pretty slick operation, believe me! Win, Win!
