With many UK consumers and businesses looking to keep the cost of travel as low as possible, many are choosing to use price comparison sites to find the best deal on travel extras such as airport parking.
Leading the new wave of cost cutting websites is airport parking price comparison website Looking4Parking.com which offers travellers discounts of up to 60 per cent. The special offers are available at airports right across the UK and apply to most kinds of parking - including spaces in the airport short stay car parks, park & ride car parks located off the airport site and more convenient meet & greet options.
The best deals on airport parking can often be secured on Looking4Parking.com by booking well in advance or by signing up to the website’s Facebook group or mailing list for notification of additional discount codes.
Many of the larger airport parking price comparison sites also offer a price comparison service on a range of other travel extras. These range from discounted airport hotels and airport lounges, to travel insurance and port and cruise parking.
So how do price comparison websites manage to offer such low prices while remaining in business? According to Looking4Parking.com’s Managing Director Martin Mansell, the formula is simple.
"We employ staff to continually monitor the websites of our competitors and adjust our prices accordingly. The fact that we don't charge booking or cancellation fees and have a great relationship with vendors and airports right around the UK helps us keep prices down too."
"Our operation is run by a small, hard-working efficient team and we use the internet as our primary method of communication. Both of these facts enable us to grow our market share while keeping our overheads low. The savings we make can then be passed on to our customers."
