A study by Admiral reveals that airport parking is a post code lottery for many travelers:

RAC head of external affairs Pete Williams said: “Motorists and travelers should be aware of the sky-high charges levied by some operators for parking whether they are using long-stay or even just drop-off parking.

“Parking is one of the most contentious issues for UK motorists and it is a particularly sore subject when they are feeling that they have little option but to pay the exorbitant prices charged by some UK airports.

“The message to anyone driving to a UK airport this summer is simple – check the fees carefully before you set out and watch you don’t exceed the maximum permitted stay or you could end up with a penalty charge costing as much as a short-haul flight to Europe.”
