Airport Hotels and Airport Parking
To park and fly or to park, sleep and then fly is the question, and it's a biggy!
Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester and all the UK airports are surrounded by dedicated car parks, and by hotels offering car parking deals when you stay the night before your flight.
If you have to travel a long way to the airport or if your flight is at silly o'clock in the morning then the hotel and parking is an easy choice, but even outside of this it can still make lots of sense.
For stays longer than a few days the price difference between parking, and hotels with parking is often not that great. And the security and relaxation of getting to the airport the night before, maybe a glass of wine with dinner, can be worth those few extra pounds.
In addition to special room rates when booking parking many of the hotels will also offer special evening meal or breakfast deals, better to fill up in the hotel on a cheap deal than to spend a fortune in the airport lounge.
