How to find cheap parking and rental cars for your holiday

Who doesn’t know this situation? The long-awaited holiday is coming up, the flights are booked and fortunately they were not too expensive. But what can be extremely expensive are the car parks at the airport, which raise the holiday costs. Many travellers therefore accept the effort of taking public transport or taxis to the airport or even having friends and families drive them there.

To counteract this annoyance, there are providers who offer cheap parking in the immediate vicinity of the airports. Thus, one can comfortably drive to the airport by his own car and does not have to dig too deep into one’s pockets for parking. One of the leading platforms is TravelCar. The start-up from France offers an integrated mobility platform. Besides cheap parking, you can also book rental cars and rides at affordable conditions on their site. As a result of its rapid growth, the company has now been taken over by the automobile giant PSA, best known for its Peugeot, Citroën and Opel brands. 1.5 million customers already use its services in 180 countries, rating the company with 4.5/5 on Trustpilot.

How does it work?

Let’s assume you want to take a plane from Manchester Airport. Searching for your airport, you will see all private and official car parks available at the airport and close to it with their respective rates, their ratings, and their distance to the airport. In this way you can compare the offers and choose the one that suits you best.

The standard product covers a free shuttle service from the car park to the terminal. However, you can also choose a valet service which means that you head right to the terminal where a chauffeur will wait for you to take charge of your car and bring it to the car park. When you return from your holiday, he will wait for you again ready to hand over your car. Like this you can even increase your comfort and save the time of the shuttle transfer.

Airport parking tips

Many providers offer flex and non-flex tariffs. The flex tariffs grant you a maximum flexibility regarding cancellation whereas non-flex means your price will be on a minimum. You also have the possibility to book extra services like filling up, washing, or repairing your car.

After arriving at your destination, you can also rely on TravelCar if you want to take a rental car or a ride. Using the same platform, you can book rental cars and shuttles all over the world. With these solutions TravelCar makes sure you stay mobile in the most convenient way possible. If you encounter any problems, you can reach out to TravelCar’s customer service 24/7.
