Airport parking pricier than flights

Adrian Holliday

When it costs more to park your car at the airport than buy a flight ticket, something's wrong. And there are HUGE cost differences between pre-booked prices and turn-up-and-pay.

According to the Consumers' Association, parking at Heathrow can cost around £66 for a week if you book in advance. But turn up on the day and that £66 can hit £120. An 81.8% rise!
