Book a Hotel Room with Free Airport Parking

August 12, 2009

Did you know that many Heathrow Airport Hotel deals include airport parking?

You could be tucked up in bed all warm

You could be tucked up in bed all warm

What this means is that, for the price of your hotel room, you get to leave your car in a Heathrow airport car park for the duration of your trip abroad. This can save you lots of money in Heathrow parking charges. And you can find that the cost of your Heathrow hotel room, with airport parking included, can be less than the airport parking charges would have been.

So, if you are flying from Heathrow, or any other UK airport for that matter, why not look out for hotel room deals that include airport car parking. To relax and rest before your flight, you get to stay in a nice, comfortable hotel room for the night before your flight and your car parking space doesn’t cost you any extra. This is especially good for those early morning flights.

Using our unique search engine, Compare airport parking allows you to search for the cheapest car parking at Heathrow. However, not only does Compare present you with the cheapest parking, but below this you will see what the cheapest hotel at Heathrow will cost. Sometimes the upgrade cost to a hotel with parking (rather than the parking choice you were looking at) will be less than £10. On other occasions this can actually cost the same or even less.

Take a look, you will be surprised

The big beastie with teeth

The big beastie with teeth

This monster was running around at work. As a self confessed suffer of arachnophobia, I was petrified when I saw this monster coming at me with his teeth all gnashing ready to eat me. Exaggeration, I know, but as a sufferer of arachnophobia this is really whats running through my mind.

Also take a look at the beast, being displayed by my wife (who was good enough to catch it and place it outside a long way outside, it certainly does look angry.

Although at Compare airport parking and Compare airport hotels, we cannot guarantee that there will be no monsters under the bed or running down the curtains, we hope our selection of parking with hotels meet with your approval and standards.

Concorde’s replacement at Heathrow is finally in place

July 23, 2008

Well, it’s been a while since I reported the model of Concorde, guardian of the Heathrow roundabout, had been retired to Brooklands museum. It’s replacement, the A380 model owned by Emirates, has finally been installed.

It’s over 45 tonnes, and massive, bigger than the Concorde model, but what sort of impression does this give. Without being xenophobic, at a time when we should be saluting British engineering and design, blatantly displaying a foriegn companies plane at one of our main international airports, seems wrong to me.

Have a read and view the report on the construction and installation here.

A bit of fun regarding Heathrow Terminal 5

April 10, 2008

Now that BAA and BA have sorted (no pun intended) the baggage problems and the airport terminal is returning to normal its time to reflect and have a little fun.

Whilst browsing I found a couple of funny articles in The Register.

The poster has decided to re-enact some events from the chaos using Playmobil toys.

Obviously the scenes are exagerated. but they are worth a look and a smile.

You can view them under the following links.

These were obviously created for fun.  Does anyone else know where there are some funny pictures using playmobil or Lego.  Let me know.


A Heathrow Terminal 5 insider

April 8, 2008

If you are reading my blog and you are interested in Heathrow Terminal 5, you may wish to read this blog from a terminal 5 insider.

I was especially worried about the public announcements.

Read the blog here –

After I said it here first, Government willing to asssit Heathrow terminal 5

March 31, 2008

Only the other day, I said the Government should either take over or assist the sorting out of Heathrow Terminal 5.  Now it appears Transport Minister Ruth Kelly has said the government stood “ready to assist” should BA or BAA need help.

Well, having suggested this myself, I don’t think they should wait to be asked, I think they should go straight in for the good of the countries image.  And all costs should be charged back to BA and BAA, so that the taxpayer does not lose out again when BA and BAA make so much money each year.

I see even BA are worried how long it will take to sort as with Terminal 5’s problems have led BA to consider postponing the transfer of its long-haul operations at Terminal 4 to the new building, which had been scheduled for the end of April.

The passengers due on these flights are probably hoping this is the case too.

Don’t forget, you don’t need assistance from the Government to compare the cheapest airport parking at Heathrow Airport, come visit Compare-Airport-Parking and see for yourself.

BA say that the T5 baggage system is ‘working’, what about DNA from old pants

March 31, 2008

Well, I suppose they are right in saying that the system is working.  Unfortunately there are still thousands of bags outstanding at Heathrow T5.

Now, Call me sceptical if you want, but I gather that BAA and BA called in 400 staff at the weekend, solely to clear the outstanding baggage.  on top of that I gather more flights are still cancelled and there is still a mountain of bags left to be processed.

This still makes the UK look  really bad in the eyes of our European counterparts and the world.

On top of all this, some people are apparently being advised that they can claim on their insurance, for the bags.  Now, don’t get me wrong, but say you are coming back from honeymoon, and your dress is in the bags, you don’t want compensation, you want your dress.  What if your camera or memory chip is in your bag, all those photos and memories are lost.

BAA and BA will have to be careful, there has been times in the past when bags have just been gathered up and sent to auction after a certain time period, and the company claiming the owners could not be tracked.  Scott Mills from BBC radio 1, once covered a story about this and actually tracked down the auction house.   Now, there is nothing wrong with this, and its all legal, but I cannot think of anything worse than items of my clothing and other things I carry in my luggage being auctioned then pawed through by strangers.  And in the age of DNA fingerprinting, here’s a thought, imagine a pair of dirty pants, being in your luggage waiting to be washed when you get home, being auctioned as part of your bag.  Subsequently those pants being left at the scene of a murder or a rape!!.  Put’s you on the suspect list straight away.  Is this just me or am I talking sense.

Anyhow, even though the baggage is having problems, and flights are delayed at Heathrow, you know you can always trust on Compare-Airport-Parking, to find you the cheapest parking at Heathrow terminal 5 or indeed anywhere at Heathrow.
