Park Mark Safer Parking Award – Why It’s So Important

Almost 10 million people travelled through Glasgow Airport in 2017 and many of these will travel to the airport by car – and it’s this huge demand for airport parking that can attract rogue operators.

And with travellers looking to save a few pounds with the best deals, it’s often difficult to ignore parking that simply seems too good to be true. However, the truth is that with many rogue operators hiding behind professional-looking websites, it’s likely that many of these deals will be just that. 

This is why the Park Mark Safer Parking Award is such a useful tool for travellers looking to dodge the rogues and avoid the risk of leaving their vehicle parked on derelict waste ground, on city streets or illegally parked in local car parks.

The Park Mark Safer Parking Award helps travellers who are departing from Glasgow Airport have confidence that the parking provider they’re trusting their vehicle with has fit-for-purpose security in place.

It is the Park Mark Safer Parking Award that provides such legitimacy and confidence that travellers look for when booking parking. That’s why all of Glasgow Airport parking services offered by APH are Park Mark accredited.

As a Police Crime Prevention Initiative, the Park Mark Safer Parking Award is designed to help cut the instances of actual crime or the fear of it in car parks across the UK as a whole – including airports.

We are proud supporters of the Park Mark Safer Parking Award and its mission statement to ensure safe and legitimate Glasgow Airport parking to all travellers.
