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

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.

Have you thought of booking an airport hotel and parking?

July 21, 2009

Have you ever had to rush to the airport at a really anti social time? Whilst sitting in the car travelling towards your airport have you ever thought there must be a more civilised way of doing things?

Well there is. Most UK airports will either have hotels on the airport or just outside. Strangely enough, you will find that they are not always as expensive as you may have thought. For instance, if you were flying from East Midlands at 6am, you may have booked parking for approximately £31. You could in fact get a hotel for £60 including the parking. What’s more, the parking may be of a better quality than the one you had selected as the best option.

Using the Compare Airport Parking site, you can search hundreds of airport car parks to find the best deal that suits you, but did you know that they also show you the cost of upgrading to a hotel with parking? It’s true. What’s more, you can indeed book there and then or search the other hotels available at that airport to see if anything else suited your needs.

Additionally, the Compare website has introduced an interactive holiday checklist to asssit you in preparing for your holiday.

Take a look at the interactive holiday checklist from Compare Airport Parking. On this site you will find a free to use application that you can fill in your holiday details and remind yourself what to pack, what needs planning, the works. Not only that, but if you select the mailing option, it will even email you when time is running short to do some of the outstanding tasks.

Very handy and very useful. Visit the site and have a play

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.


It’s snow joke, as bad weather grounds flights

April 7, 2008

As if our airport industry did not have enough on it hands, what with Terminal 5 and baggage, this weekends snow fall has brought the typical problems faced by our country with a couple of centimeters of snow.

Gatwick, Heathrow and Bristol all had problems, with some flights being cancelled and others delayed.

I personally now think that a serious look at how our airports, roads and rail network are managed with a national plan put into effect to deal with such problems as a bit of snow, a broken down lorry or indeed the wrong type of leaves on the railway lines.

What do you all think? Could you do better? How would you fund it, how would you deploy assets and manpower.?

Come on, see this as a challenge.


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.

Its Saturday, so its hair and stew time

March 29, 2008

It’s Saturday, so no work on airport parking for me today. I must admit, I am still watching the ongoing saga at Heathrow Terminal 5. It would appear there’s still 15,000 bags waiting to be passed on. Mmm I don’t savour that task.!!

Anyhow, more about me. It was time to trim the old hair today. My favourite hair stylist was not available so I had someone else, and to be honest, it was nice, with a different face and a different topic of conversation. Funny enough, the conversation went on to childrens TV. This is one of my favourite subjects. I don’t have kids (only a godson and he’s growing up fast) but I still like to chill out and watch some strange kids programs.

I think I will have to post some memories on here, see if it prompts any memories from you, or if you have any comments.

Anyhow, my wife is not feeling so well, so it was time to prepare a batch of my nourishing farmhouse stew. I love making this, but I always take hours doing it, as I insist on ensuring all the vegetables break down almost to a mush to let the juices all mingle. Best served with mash, but I’ve stuck it in a baked potato before!!

The only problem was I did not have time to go to the butchers, so I thought I could use Tesco’s to save time and get everything in one place. Big mistake, Tesco’s in Ashford Kent, had delivery failures, so the fresh meat counter looked like Old Mother Hubbards cupboard. No good irish beef, no good english beef. There was some scottish beef but this was so expensive, I thoought I would skip it. Lucky for me I found a nice pre packaged couple of steaks, which are good for cutting up.

So now, after cutting two bags of carrots, two bags of parsnips, three sweedes and ten large leeks, the result is 4 large pots slowly bubbling away with a nice organic smell. I thought I would pop onto Internet land and have a little look, before starting on the meat and onions. The old chest freezer won’t know whats hit it tonight.

Is it just me, or is this just so wrong?

March 28, 2008

I was reading an article on all the people waiting at Heathrow Airport terminal 5.

One chap claimed “I could do was visit lovejuice and wait”.!!

Well, I had to look it up, and yes, there is a juice bar called Lovejuice. It is a chain that appears in many other airports and shopping centres, they are also looking into creating a range of heathy snacks called lovebites.

Other catering at Heathrow Terminal 5 include:-
Gordon Ramsay
Krispy Kreme
Caffè Nero
V Bar (launched by the Restaurant Group)

But, i’m sorry, only lovejuice made me laugh. Take a look at catersearch, who list all the Heathrow Terminal 5 catering.

If you are travelling to Heathrow soon, have you considered Heathrow airport parking?, or how about a hotel at heathrow the night before your flight. Stay nice and relaxed before you hit the terminal.

Its not at Heathrow, so where is the little Concorde from outside?

March 28, 2008

Have you ever considered what happened to the little 40% scale model of Concorde that used to sit outside Heathrow.

Now that there is a lot of attention at Heathrow, many people will start thinking, where is the Concorde.

Well, rest assured that it was not scrapped.  In another top management decision, BA decided that it was something from the past, and not symbolic of their companys current development.  (Rather ironic that the new terminal 5 building has  a Concorde Lounge and Bar!!).

The other reason behind this was the cost of the plot of land, although small, was well over a £1,000,000 to hire as advertising space.

However, the Concorde model is safe, she has an excellent home at the Brooklands Museum, along with a  full sized one.  Visit the site here.

If you are interested in the full sized concorde, take a look at what’s been happening to her.
