With rail delays threatening to derail travel plans over Christmas, you might want to save cash and ease stress by swapping trains for the comfort of airport parking with APH.
Heading to Gatwick Airport for a family trip this Christmas? Then make sure you check out the prices of airport parking before booking a seat on the Gatwick Express.
Along with swapping windy platforms for the warmth and reliability of your own car, you might find it’s the cheaper option.
The Gatwick Express service between London Victoria and Gatwick Airport is already facing delays due to engineering works and faults, which are likely to increase further as the big getaway begins.
See how using the Gatwick Express compares with APH Gatwick parking:
Gatwick Express: A return ticket for a family of four (two adults and two children) will cost around £77 (if you book in advance) on the Gatwick Express from London Victoria from the 17-24 of December.
Airport parking: Using pre-booked airport parking will cost just over £59 across the same dates.
Hotel and parking: Upgrading to a hotel and parking package at the 4-star Crowne Plaza Gatwick will cost just £94 – including one night’s stay and a week’s parking with APH!
