Free Airport Hotels and Parking for UK Jetsetters this Winter

(PRWeb) December 13, 2006 — British holidaymakers catching an early morning flight could be staying or parking at the airport for free.

This winter, over 40% of travellers will brave an early morning drive to take advantage of cheaper airfares, yet most will not consider staying at an airport hotel before their flight for fear of doubling their pre-holiday bill. At only £59 for an overnight stay including 2 weeks parking at Gatwick, compared to £56 for parking only, it seems the public is missing out.

The last 3 years has seen a steady increase in early morning check-ins as a direct result of the money-conscious traveller seeking the best priced flights. This has meant only one thing — the quiet 4am drive to the airport has become a lot busier.

The solution presents itself in the form of, launched by Simply Extras Ltd on 1 October 2006, bringing affordable pre-flight airport hotel and parking packages directly to the public. Tim Hagger, MD of Simply Extras, says: “A hotel and parking stay needn’t cost the earth and offers a much greater convenience over an early morning drive.”

“We offer a 4-star hotel stay including 15 days parking at Heathrow for £79, the same price as the room-only rate. That’s the equivalent of your airport parking for free.”

The service offers customers a simple, intuitive and unbiased way to quickly compare room-only prices alongside inclusive airport parking deals. Choosing from one of the 24 UK airports, the customer selects their preferred airport hotel and parking options and lets Simply’s bespoke search engine do the hard work by finding the latest prices and availability from an extensive library of over 140 airport hotels.

Within a few seconds the website displays the best-priced deals from a wide selection of hotels to cover all budgets, ranging from bargain 2-star hotel stays to luxury 5-star accommodation. The customer is then free to choose the most suitable hotel and parking package — many of which include breakfast or dinner in the price. Within one click they can confirm their details, pay and secure their booking online.

Building on the success of which has saved customers money on over 100,000 airport parking spaces this year, Simply Extras aims to provide another valuable service to air travellers with Simply Hotels.

With lingering delays from increased airport security, longer check-in times are now commonplace, resulting in earlier drives to the airport. Simply Hotels brings an affordable, attractive, and little known alternative to the table.
