Cheap.co.uk confirms sharp increase in Manchester airport parking sales.
As summer looms, the airport parking is obviously expected to get busier as an industry with a larger number of travelers heading abroad for their holidays but this is typically at the London airports first.
Cheap stated that last year’s summer sales started around late March, with parking at Heathrow and Gatwick starting the rise towards the busy summer months. Airports such as Manchester, Birmingham, Stansted and Liverpool then followed with sales peaking mid September.
A cheap spokesmen commented: “Manchester appears to be the first airport to pick up on the summer rush this year which is unexpected as its usually Heathrow and Gatwick, followed by Stansted. Car parking prices at Manchester airport are currently extremely low and have been for quite a while, the airport is one of only a handful where a weeks parking can be obtained for just over £20. Compare this with Heathrow where you would currently expect to pay around £54, a huge difference.”
“Whilst many travelers will not really take this into account when looking at holidays, they are aware that airports such as Heathrow are more expensive and the difference in parking costs would be included in this view.”
Manchester airport has a huge number of parking choices. There are a huge number of off airport park and ride services operating around the area and this competition has pushed prices down although these are expected to rise.
“Prices at Manchester are about to rise, we have already had one car park requesting us to change their rates from £22.80 for 8 days parking to £31.20. These are due to go up on Tuesday. Off airport car parks such as these base their rates on the airports official car park rates and these have risen in March.”
