Anyone dropping off or picking up passengers from Birmingham airport will need to bring plenty of change to feed the car park machine, with charges hitting £50 for less than an hour’s parking.
Tightened security at UK airports has meant dropping off and picking up travellers has seen motorists pushed towards expensive parking zones.
Birmingham has been highlighted as one example, where using its Premium set-down zone could see you charged up to £1-a-minute. The alternative Standard set-down offering – a 5-10-minute walk from the terminal – charges £30 for the same duration.
Stansted hits travellers with a charge of £25 for stays longer than 30 minutes, while Gatwick will present drivers with a £23 bill for 30 minutes.
Anyone dropping off or picking up at Luton might like to steer clear of the Drop Off Zone, which will cost £3 for 10 minutes, but see the charging accelerate by £1-a-minute thereafter.
