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 Heathrow Airport with long stay parking?
Each option has its benefits and disadvantages. Of course, no matter how close you are to the airport you’re still likely to need shuttle transport from the hotel to the terminal and of course, the cost is likely to be higher for the standard of service you’ll receive in terms of room size. 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.
Parking is included in the cost of your Hotel, Park & Fly Package. If the hotel does not offer this package please enquire directly to see if there are any charges or whether the hotel has preferential discounted rates or car parking deals from local specialist parking companies.
Hotels usually offer a number of different options for the length of parking to complement your time abroad. If the hotel does not offer a Hotel, Park & Fly Package that meets your needs then it would be a good idea to enquire directly to see whether the hotel has access to preferential car parking deals from professional parking companies based locally.
