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

With around 1.4 million passengers travelling from Southend Airport during 2018, many of these will have used their own vehicle to reach the terminal.

That’s why looking out for the Park Mark Safer Parking Award can help ensure travellers are not troubled by such operators – and are free to book with legitimate, responsible providers.

Travel with confidence, escape the rogues and dodge the risk of leaving your vehicle parked without protection in remote industrial wastelands or busy public streets.

The Park Mark Safer Parking Award helps travellers flying from Southend Airport fly with the peace of mind that comes with knowing the parking provider they’ve chosen will provide the guarantee of safe and secure facilities.
