Travel insurance customers 'hit by airport car parking fees'

Monday, 17 May 2010

Travel insurance customers are being hit by "ridiculous high" airport parking fees, it has been claimed.

A recent survey conducted by consumer watchdog Which? Car magazine has revealed that there are big differences in the price travel insurance customers pay for seven days' parking at major airports in the UK.

The business car park at Heathrow hits travel insurance holders the hardest, costing £88.70 for a week, while at Manchester Airport the park-and-ride provides the cheapest weekly cost at only £19.84.

Prices were checked at 15 of the busiest airports in the UK by Which? Car, which provides completely independent car tests and owner feedback to its readers.

Park-and-ride facilities, parking combined with a stay at a local hotel the night before a flight and valet parking services were all included in the survey, along with the on-site parking options.

The Purple Parking firm appears to offer the best deals for travel insurance customers, providing the cheapest parking spaces at both Manchester and Heathrow.
