  1. My husband prefers airport parking for the convenient reasons you mentioned. I think it can get really expensive. Depending on which airport we use in LA, I like to take Uber.

    I’ve never flown from Bristol before, I usually fly from Manchester and sometimes drive and park there! xo

  3. I think airport parking is helpful but I think it can get pricey sometimes. I have some friends who prefer airport parking because he lives miles away and it would be more of a hassle if he commutes because he usually have a lot of baggage when he travels.

    • I agree, it can get expensive. It’s a good idea to compare costs in advance to see what will work out best for you. It was so nice not to have to lug our suitcases around on public transport!

  4. I don’t have a car but I normally get public transport or a taxi if I am going to the airport. It is good that the payment process was so simple for you though! x

    I’ve never dared to park at an airport after seeing all the horror stories on the telly, but maybe it’s not that bad considering your experience was so easy 🙂 I might have to reconsider it in future!

    • Oh wow, really? I thought Bristol was quite a popular airport. In Wales, we have Cardiff Airport which is even smaller and can be more expensive, so I fly from Bristol normally 🙂

    We have done airport parking a couple of times and it is convienient and it’s good when the buses are regular.

    • We were lucky the car park we stayed in was so close to the airport, we didn’t have to get a bus to the terminal from where we were. I can imagine it being more troublesome if you had to factor this in as well.

  7. I live in the US and when I used to fly when I was little my parents would have us take public transportation to the airport so we didn’t have to park there. For us, parking at the airport can be a nightmare.

    • I see what you mean, sometimes it’s nice to leave the car at home so you don’t have to worry about it, and it’s always a good idea to compare costs for different ways of getting to the airport, with airport parking.

  8. We never use airport parking, preferring to rope one of our parents to taking us there or using a minibus. I think airport parking can be really expensive but that’s actually really not that bad!

    • It’s always nice to get a lift 🙂 I was surprised at how expensive it can be, but I always surprised at how little the difference in cost is compared with public transport and Uber, at times.

  9. When I go on holiday, my parents usually drop me off then pick me up but they often park in the short stay when picking me up but it cost a fortune just for an hour stay! So to pay £1 for 20 seems like Bristol airport is much cheaper!

    • Yeah I don’t think £1 for 20 mins is bad to be honest. If they didn’t charge a fee, the car park could get really congested with all the people who need lifts, etc.

    • I haven’t used it anywhere else so I have nothing to compare the Bristol Airport parking to, but I had a very positive first experience with airport parking in general there.

  10. As I don’t drive I usually get a lift or make my way on public transport, but my parents always park at the airport. Glad to hear it was a fuss free process for you, nothing worse than panicking about missing your flight or being delayed coming home because of parking
