Flying to your destination
Nowadays, the variety and choice of flights from UK airports to European destinations is considerable. We do not tie you in to a package holiday with prearranged travel; you are free to choose flights from your closest airport using any charter, scheduled or low cost airline.
We always recommend booking your flights and hire car as soon as you have decided on your holiday accommodation. You will find that fares are usually lower and the choice of flight times is wider.
Airport parking and hotels
Once your flight is booked you will want to plan your journey from home to the airport and
arrange car parking for the duration of your holiday.
Up to 60% discount with Vintage Travel and 'Holiday Extras'
At many UK airports you can pre-book Valet Parking or Meet and Greet service, either driving straight to the airport terminal where you hand the car over to a representative, or to the secure parking area from where you will be taken in a shuttle vehicle to your departure terminal. If your flight departure is an early one, why not stay the night before at an airport hotel? Or View Parking at UK Airports.
Hotels with parking are often cheaper than parking alone and prices usually include transfers to and from the airport terminal. Many hotels offer free child places, special meal offers and use of leisure facilities, so your holiday gets off to a stress-free start.
You may find that the Airport Car Hire service suits your needs; pick up a hire car, up to 24 hours before your flight, drive to the airport and either walk or be transferred to the terminal. On return you have up to 24 hours to return the car, and you can even fly out of one airport and into another at no extra cost.
Another option is to book into an Airport Lounge , where you can escape the hustle and bustle of the airport terminal and relax for up to 3 hours before your flight.
