North West airports among most expensive in UK for car parking costs
Going on holiday is always an exciting time, but it can be a pain having to fork out a hefty sum to leave your car at the airport.
Travellers in some parts of the UK are faced with paying more than £190 to park their car for a two-week break, new research has revealed.
Airports in the North West were named among the most expensive in the UK for airport parking, with travellers flying from Manchester Airport paying an average of £101.99 for a two-week stay.
Liverpool Airport was similarly expensive, at a marginally lower cost of £97.99.
The research, conducted by My Late Deals, compared the cost of parking a car for two weeks during the summer holidays (5 to 19 August 2019) at an official airport car park at 22 of the busiest airports in the country.
The most expensive airport parking was at London City Airport, where the cheapest pre-booked space costs a hefty £196.50 over two weeks in the Long Stay car park.
London Gatwick was also high in price, with costs varying depending on whether travellers were flying from the north or south terminal.
The south terminal came out as more expensive at a cost of £115.00 for a two-week stay, while the north was marginally cheaper at £112.00.
Edinburgh Airport was named as the country's least expensive for airport parking, with a two week stay only setting travellers back an average of £43.99.
The findings revealed holidaymakers flying from London City Airport are paying more than four times the amount in parking costs in comparison to those flying from Edinburgh Airport.
Closely behind Edinburgh was East Midlands Airport, where a two-week space costs £58.49, followed by London Stansted Airport at a cost of £59.99.
The average rate for the cheapest space at an official airport car park for two weeks came in at £88.34.
