Let’s face it, summer’s been a washout. Apart from the odd spells of sunny and warm weather, the country’s been beset by rainstorms and flooding. Parts of the Midlands even saw hailstones the size of gold balls, damaging cars and properties.
So, now could be the perfect time to up sticks for a week or two and head to sunnier climes. By arranging your flights and accommodation, and booking airport parking, you can escape the British summer and enjoy some real rest and relaxation.
It seems as though something of a mass exodus has been taking place. According to travel association ABTA, during July and August, 13 million UK holidaymakers will have jetted off for adventures abroad.
The organisation also suggested that 90 per cent of these people will head to countries around the Mediterranean in order to benefit from impressive deals. Since last year, the pound has increased in value against the euro by ten per cent and there are also cheap deals in many eurozone countries as they struggle with the ongoing economic problems in the region.
Staycations are out of favour
Sometimes, you might like to stay in Britain for your summer breaks, but with weather like this, you’d be forgiven for ruling out the possibility this year.
ABTA head of communication Victoria Bacon remarked: “The UK is a beautiful country with exceptional holiday appeal but the weather this year has been setting records for all the wrong reasons and it is no surprise that millions of us are looking to head off overseas for more reliable weather and high temperatures.
“British holidaymakers will also get a pleasant surprise in their favourite eurozone destinations with the pound ten per cent stronger than last year. It’s important that people book sooner rather than later as late offers are proving popular.”
Saving cash for your trip
To make the most of your travels, it’s important that you have enough money and this is why it’s a good idea to source the best value airport car parking. Here at APH we’re committed to offering excellent value services and should have just what you need.
Whether you’re after parking at Newcastle Airport or any other transport hub, we may well be able to help. All the cash you save by being shrewd in your choice of parking can be put to very good use abroad.
Of course, when you jet off on holiday, it’s important you feel confident that your car will be safe and secure. If you’re worried about the location of your vehicle, you won’t be able to fully relax. After all, no one wants their welcome home to the UK to include discovering their car is missing or has been damaged.
We work with industry bodies to ensure we offer the highest standard of service and all three of our APH car parks have been merited with the Park Mark® Safer Parking award, along with most of the other parking partners that we work with.
