STRUGGLING to find a parking place at the airport, and then having to drag your baggage to the terminal, can get your holiday off on the wrong foot.
But Purple Parking offer airport parking for both business people as well as holidaymakers and leisure travellers.
This type of preferential parking offered by Purple Parking is becoming increasingly popular, but it is the service that counts, so is their website up to the mark?
Keeping to their name the site has purple graphics and some text is coloured the same, which may prove difficult for some people to use.
But the main page is white and with a simple click or two you can start your search for airport car parking services.
The booking page asks you for the airport you are departing from, I chose London Stansted, and the dates you are away for, I picked a week’s holiday.
The quoted price came back quickly and it is possible to find more details about where you will need to go at the airport should you go through with the quote.
You then move on to a secure server page that asks for your name and address details.
Purple Parking then asks for your car registration details and make, as well as your flight details, so you will have these details close to hand.
From here you are then asked for your credit card details to make payment, but across the top of the page are all the details of your booking so you can easily check everything is correct.
Something worth remembering with parking away from the airport is to give yourself plenty of time to find the location of the facilities.
Another thing to consider is the notice period you need to give, and the charges you face, should you cancel your booking.
Although you may never have thought about airport parking, to take the stress and strain from the start of you holiday it might be a useful thing to check out.
