Holiday Extras recommends booking early at Gatwick


Autumn is set to be a busy time at UK airports as more and more people head off in search of the sun or look to take a short break overseas. In a recent survey by holiday reviews website, 90% of respondents from the UK said that they planned to fly this autumn.

Whilst the airports may not be as busy as in the summer, the demand for flights means that long queues and airport delays are still a possibility – particularly at peak times.

Planning ahead and making sure you arrive at the airport early is one way of avoiding the worst queues. Holiday Extras, the UK market leader in airport parking and airport hotels, recommends booking well in advance to get the best deals and to avoid last minute stress caused by searching for a parking space or hotel room at the airport.

“We can save travellers up to 60% on airport hotels and airport parking when they book with us in advance,” says Holiday Extras commercial director Ian Stewart. “Travellers also save time and hassle on the day, and have the security of knowing they have a guaranteed parking space or hotel room,” he adds.

Gatwick is one of the busiest airports in the country, and unfortunately has one of the worst records for airport delays. The airport currently languishes at the bottom of a league table of delays at UK airports compiled by Travel Counsellors. Based on customer experiences waiting times at Gatwick were 25 minutes at check-in, and 33 minutes at security.

With the possiblility of these kinds of delays it is even more important to arrive at the airport feeling refreshed and relaxed. One excellent way to ensure you get to the front of the queue is to stay overnight at an airport hotel so you can arrive nice and early after a good night’s sleep.
