Taking the stress out of your holiday


Going on holiday can be a stressful experience, but if you make the right preparations you can be sure of getting off to a flying start. From booking a fear of flying course if you’re a nervous flyer, to staying at an airport hotel at the start and end of your holiday and relaxing in an airport lounge once you get to the airport, there are some simple steps you can take to put yourself in control and take the hassle out of going away.

If you’re looking for a stress-free start to your holiday staying at an airport hotel is sure to put you in the right frame of mind.

Recognising the demand for quality airport hotels at affordable prices, Holiday Extras has launched Undercover Airport Hotels, offering 3* and 4* airport hotels at Gatwick, Heathrow, Stansted, Manchester, East Midlands and Glasgow with a best price guarantee.

The prices for these top quality hotels are so good that the hotel name stays “undercover” until the booking confirmation is sent. But you can rest assured you will be staying at an excellent hotel at an unbeatable price. For example, a 4* Undercover Airport Hotel at Heathrow starts at just £45 room only, or £59 for a room and 15 days parking.

All Undercover Airport Hotels offer a high standard of comfort and service, and many also have leisure facilities allowing you to unwind before your flight. Whether you have an early morning flight and want to avoid the stress of rushing to the airport - or you arrive back late at night and want to avoid the danger of driving home when you’re tired - staying at an airport hotel will make your holiday experience more enjoyable.

A great way to reduce your stress levels once you arrive at the airport is to head to an airport lounge. Holiday Extras lets you pre-book airport lounges at a wide range of airports all around the UK with prices starting at just £13.50.

Airport lounges are perfect for escaping the hubbub of the airport and also represent excellent value for money. The price of an airport lounge includes TV, newspapers and magazines to entertain you, and complimentary drinks - including alcoholic beverages - and snacks to nourish you. Some lounges also offer internet access and fax machines, so you can mix business with pleasure if you wish.

If you get really stressed at the prospect of flying and want to overcome your fear so that you can enjoy a holiday abroad, a fear of flying course could be the answer. Two of the leading providers of fear of flying courses are BA, which runs courses in conjunction with Aviatours, and Virgin, which offers a Flying Without Fear course.

Both courses take a similar approach, beginning with a presentation by experienced pilots who explain the principles of flying, continuing with relaxation sessions with a psychotherapist or clinical psychologist, and culminating with a short 45 minute flight complete with a running commentary by the pilot.

The day long courses cover all the common causes of fear of flying, such as not feeling in control, not understanding how an aircraft flies, claustrophobia, and fear of heights or falling. As well as pilots, experienced cabin crew are on hand to answer questions and offer reassurance and by the end of the sessions most participants are ready to face their fears and experience their first flight.

Wherever you live around the UK there is likely to be a course near you. Virgin offers its Flying Without Fear course from 10 UK airports including Heathrow, Gatwick, Manchester and Birmingham, while BA and Aviatours have courses from 7 airports including all those above, plus Bristol, Glasgow and Dublin.

The courses claim a success rate of 98% so if a fear of flying is holding you back from experiencing the joys of overseas travel then there is a very good chance that your condition can be cured.

For a stress-free, relaxing start to your holiday or business trip Holiday Extras offers all that you need with a best price guarantee, including airport hotels, airport parking, airport lounges, airport car hire, and airport travel by coach and rail.
