One of the main questions that flyers ask is what is best – should I stay at an airport hotel with parking on site or stay at a hotel near Glasgow Airport?

Some travellers also prefer to stay a few miles away from the airport so that they can enjoy a quieter and more relaxed stay away from the hubbub as onsite airport hotels can be far busier places.
