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

Big hairy spiders

OMG

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.

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.

lost luggage complaints: Shock picture

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

Naomi Campbell Banned From British Airways Flights

April 8, 2008

Read the latest from Compare Airport parking News

I posted earlier this week that she had been in trouble at terminal 5.

Still, once again, hats off to BA and BAA.  It does not matter who is abusive or causing trouble, everyone should be treated equally.

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.

Heathrow Terminal 5 – baggage problems Naomi

April 4, 2008

Naomi Campbell was apparently removed from a BA plane at Heathrow Terminal 5 after she apparently reacted badly to the news that some of her baggage had been lost.

A BAA spokeswoman at Heathrow Airport said: “Police today boarded a British Airways plane and removed a passenger.”

Apparently, out of the two bags she checked in, one went missing.

Now, there’s a few points to look at here.

1)    It goes to show that the troubles faced at Terminal 5 are just as bad for famous people as they are for us mortals.
2)    It  shows  good spirit that the normal passengers, although upset have not reacted in most cases to violence.
3)    Even with the baggage problems, BAA are ensuring safety of passengers and staff is paramount.

Now, I’ve been critical of the way the Terminal 5 has been handled, but I have to admit, that even though the incident was caused by lost luggage, it still shows that BAA are also heavily committed to standards.  No matter who causes or commits any act against staff, police or property at an airport need to be removed.  Such is the case here, no matter who they are.

So from me, well done BA & BAA.

Terminal 5 ready for full flights – are we ready for more fun

April 3, 2008

BAA and BA claim that Heathrow Terminal 5 will be ready to handle all flights and baggage from Saturday.

Well, after previous events, I think the whole world will be watching.

In my own honest opinion, if it goes wrong again, the government must step in, to what has become a national humiliation.

April fools day

April 1, 2008

Well, April fools day has passed once again to the normal online fun.

There were stories about the space station running on an old version of windows and being un-supported.

There were also stories about the French president being stretched to match his wife.

Did you fall for any of them, let me know, it could cheer me up.  Just leave a comment below.  Perhaps we can all have a laugh.
I tried my April fool gag,  but no-one found it funny.  Mind you it was regarding luggage at Heathrow Terminal 5 so I cannot blame people for not laughing.

It just means that I have a year to try and think of something funny.

Heathrow Terminal 5 – baggage problems solved.

April 1, 2008

LOL,

April fool

as if it would be sorted overnight.  Apparently some bags are being sorted in Milan as there is no room in Terminal 5.
Did that make you laugh?  Well, look at the parking prices on Compare Airport Parking.  Hopefully you will laugh at how much money you can save

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.
