(possibly) free parking at any airport in the UK @ Holiday Extras

56
Found 3rd Jun 2014
Holiday extras are offering free airport parking if you can find the same parking for less money within 24 hours of booking with them.

I've managed to book 2 weeks parking for free because purpleparking.com beat their price by £9.

T&C's apply but as long as the time, date & place are all the same, you're quids in.

Looks OK but I note that you contact them via an 0871 number - charged at around 10p per minute possibly. This could soon add up if they were slow to answer!

** further info ** The price needs to be beaten by 5p or more to qualify. Its in the T&C's.

They weren't slow to answer: about 5 minutes of call in total. The parking was £68.00 so a hell of a saving.

Thanks!

How is this a deal ? It should be moved to misc

It wouldn't add up to anything like the value of free airport parking though, and 0871 numbers can easily be free.

It's always been like this

Thanks for sharing

That's a bold promise without checking and undercutting your competitors first - someone's for the chop!

Hi did u book with holiday extra first then found a cheaper costs?

I'd like to know too - there's that small risk that they don't give you the parking free once you've intentionally paid more than a competitor...

found the cheaper price first. Triple checked to make sure it was identical to the Holiday Extras offer and THEN booked the more expensive one.

I couldnt find a cheaper price (Heathrow), might have more luck at other locations

Heathrow 1 week from 10th June:

Holiday Extra - £80
Purpleparking - £45

Scratch that. Poor example.

£120 for cheapest Gatwick parking for 1 car (2 week holiday) ... are they having a laugh? oO

We would need to book 2 cars in so they would want £240! - I can get a family train ticket (Groupsave Return) for £40 total for 6 people (4x adults 2x children).

Madness.

(No reflection on your post OP - just amazed at the prices as paid much less to park last year)

looks like most are all matching impossible to find one for Edinburgh here

I've found you can get it cheaper if you go to one of the booking sites sites via the links on the Money Saving Expert site, but I don't know if that contravenes this T&C:

8. Prices that are part of any other discount or special offer deal

Cheaper with aph direct if booked at Manchester, claim submitted, thanks op!

Also screenshot your own price searches to back your claim, lady on the phone said it was a different price on her browser (probably cookie history increased her price)

I followed my phone call up with an email. That way there could be no "mistake" that the claim had been submitted. I received an email response within 4 hours to say that my claim had been successful.

surely when you get you confirmation email through it will show exactly what you paid for it? my point being go for a flexible rate..so if the dont honour it you can always cancel?

Hi , I thought most folks on here now would know to use saynoto0870 website to avoid paying any premium rate numbers. A freefone number 0800..... Is available and published there.

Hope this helps

Just booked my parking for my holiday, paid for it and just phoned them up to say i seen it cheaper and she confirmed it, she said she has passed it on and i should hear from them within 2 days, i also took a screen shot like you guys have said cheers OP X)

Nice.

you don't need to use the 0871 number you can just call them on their normal number done many times.

Interesting, but tried with stansted and (looking at all parking options, even valet and meet & greet, they seem to be the cheapest already! WAIT - tried skyparksecure and their prices are cheaper, but include a "discount" - I wonder if that would work with HX's terms and conditions -- anyone game? (sadly i have already booked my parking!)

Saynoto0870 has contact details for Holiday extras.

If you are going to try this, i'd probably try to collect the cashback as well!

Used the same with Monarch a few years back and got free parking (although they tried desperately to wriggle out of it - as if they never expected to pay out). Most sites give exactly the same price, possibly driven by the same data feed, so it's rare to catch them out. Nice if you do!

I did the same thing with Monarch/Essential Travel and always got it for essentially 50p which was the cost of the cancellation insurance. Saved fortunes over the years as did the friends we were going on holiday with. never got turned down by Essential Travel for the full refund and they were really quick at processing it.
They have unfortunately stopped that now and will only refund the difference as opposed to the full cost.

UPDATE: Got a email today saying Thank you for calling us to make a Free If price guarantee claim.



Having looked into the details, I can confirm that your Free If claim has been successful. Therefore, after your stay on 10/09/14 I will refund the booking cost back to you. Please allow 3-5 working days after this date
