Holiday Extras' top tip for a stress free start to a holiday over the busy Christmas period is to stay overnight at an airport hotel. More and more people are recognising the benefits of beginning their holiday a night early at an airport hotel. And now a new trend is emerging - staying at an airport hotel after a holiday.
"Staying at an airport hotel before your holiday avoids all the last minute stress of having to get up early and then rush to the airport to catch an early morning flight. We are also seeing a growing trend for people to stay at an airport hotel on their return from holiday to avoid the stress and dangers of driving home when tired," says Holiday Extras head of commercial, Anthony Clarke-Cowell.
The advantages of starting a holiday in an airport hotel have been recognised by a growing number of influential people in the travel business, including Matt Rudd writing in the Sunday Times on 16 December. Having tried an airport hotel with his family, Mr Rudd has decided "now we're always going to start the holiday at an airport hotel".
Thousands of people like Mr Rudd have discovered the many advantages of staying at an airport hotel, both before a holiday and after one, by booking with the UK market leader in airport hotels and airport parking, Holiday Extras.
Holiday Extras has been selling the benefits of enjoying a relaxing start to a holiday by staying at an airport hotel for almost 25 years, and more and more people have quite literally woken up to the advantages.
In his article, Mr Rudd relates how staying at an airport hotel meant there was no need for him and his family to get up at an ungodly hour in order to rush to the airport to catch an early flight. Instead of having to get up at 1.50am to catch a flight at 6.25am, the Rudd family were able to set their alarm for 4.50am, leaving enough time for a cup of tea before the short hop to the airport.
"We woke, we abluted, we pushed the trolley into the arrivals hall and we checked in at a queueless desk for an on-time flight that was only half full," writes Mr Rudd. "These sorts of things just don't happen to the Rudd family, and the only thing we'd done differently was stay at a hotel. Everything is clearly linked cosmically. So now we're always going to start the holiday at an airport hotel."
But Mr Rudd could have enjoyed an even better start to his holiday if he'd booked with Holiday Extras. By pre-booking his airport hotel, and airport parking, with Holiday Extras, Mr Rudd could have saved up to 60% off standard prices.
