We have all been there; you are looking forward to a nice relaxing holiday and have daydreams that come straight from the holiday brochure of you and your loved ones soaking up the rays in a state of relaxed bliss.
…Sadly the reality does not always live up to the dream and it is for this reason why it is so important that you make sure that you have every part of your holiday planned. When you leave things to chance you allow an element of risk to enter your holiday and this will almost certainly lead to stress.
You only have to take a quick glance around the airport terminal to see stressed out mums and dads who are trying to get away on their annual break and they are looking as far away from relaxed as can be!
If you don’t want this to be you and you want to enter the check-in halls on time and cool, calm and collected then remember this phrase – preparation is key!
Now I am not saying that you need to plan your holiday with military precision, but you will do well to make sure that you have taken care of the nitty gritty to make your journey to and from where you are staying as smooth as you can make it.
This means that you will have to consider how you are getting to the airport. If you have a family then one of the easiest and most practical ways that you can travel to check-in will be to take the family car. It will work out cheaper than having to pay for train tickets for all of you and you will able to guarantee that you will be fit your entire luggage into the car.
If you are new to airport parking then you will be pleased to know that there are a variety of pricing options that are open to you so you will be able to find something that fits into your budget.
Whether you be taking your family on a trip of a lifetime, where you want to pull out all the stops (valet parking will be the perfect option for you in this case) or you are getting away on a shoestring budget (in which case you will need the park and ride service) you will be able to find something to suit your needs.
And don’t worry you do not have to go trawling the internet to find the best deal either. A quick visit to holidayextras.co.uk (the place to go for all your holiday bolt-ons!) will help you to book the stuff you may have over looked.
The key to being organised is to work from the bottom up making sure that all essentials are covered from the moment you leave the house making Stansted parking, or even Manchester Airport parking something to add to your list!
