Possible free car parking at airport... No longer working, although see post for holiday extra free parking!

Found 9th May 2011
I've not posted it as a deal although for me this is the deal of the year as ive just saved myself £107 and got free car parking at Birmingham airport for 4 weeks in July. Monarch are guaranteeing that their car parking is the cheapest you can find (without voucher codes or special offers) or they will give it you for free. There's a challenge I thought and lo and behold I managed to find a place cheaper! The car parking That i''ve used to compare it was parkandgo.co.uk.. Just in case it didn't work I paid an extra 50p so that I could cancel it but I got the email today to confirm I was getting the full amount refunded in the next day or 2! Definately worth a look. If others get it then it may be worth moving it to a deal.

Monarch parking uses essential travel (same company, different name basically but the email confirmation comes from essentialtravel.co.uk), who offer the exact same price guarantee. Go through topcashback for 8% cashback at essential travel and see if that tracks as well as your freebie parking!!

Not sure if this is still with monarch but I have just booked 3 weeks meet and greet parking for July with essential travel and had it refunded again!!

STILL WORKS!! But now with Holiday Extras who refund after you've returned from holiday... see Post 383 onwards!

Original Poster

It's only car parking and not even with their company. You just use them as a booking agent for it. It's saved me over £100 so I love them at the moment.. Can't complain when it's free

so u arent flying with them? phew!!

its a fab deal and thanks for the heads up.... just saying be careful they are terrible with regards to seats

I love it when a plan comes together

No, I have flown with them before along with every other budget airline. I'm going with Ryanair this time. All as bad as each other but you get what you pay for and in our case not a lot :-)

i cant get my head round this...can anyone check it for me?

In fact the multistory one is also cheaper. Cannot be special offer etc as it says above but these don't appear to be. I paid an extra 50p so that I could cancel at a cost of £5 if it went wrong

Yes, that the way. I emailed a Screenshot too. Just check it is the same place etc and terms and conditions are the same

I wouldn't park in with them ones you leave the keys with them.

Was looking at Stansted mid stay or long stay car park 26th May (11am) to 3rd June (8pm) but everywhere is coming up the exact same price as Monarch - £91 long stay and £113.50 mid stay

yay PM..... glad u making the most of this tip. nice one wookie!

we were gonna fly to tenerife with monarch but reviews said they were awful. ryanair really is a bus servide but its prices are very low so u cant complain. monarch is a bit more pricey

we always leave keys with them...never a problem.

we usualy do meet & greet as its brilliant esp when you got kids..and if the weather is bad-car wont start..they have the hassle not you!
Liverpool tho is literally hop over the road 2 mins..and cheapest strangely!

It will cost you £5 to cancel it. As long as you have made sure that you have followed the terms and conditions you should be fine. Had my response back the next working morning and it was all fine

Same here... but some people dont care about their cars.

Edited by: "RickT" 9th May 2011

Well actually my car has been left with them many times and never anything missing or damaged. I have a few hundred £ just in kids carseats too. WE have always found the service impeccable at manchester. The beauty is they are there as you go out of the terminal. No messing or waiting.

I just used the 'meet & greet' service at Heathrow (purple parking)....
Fantastic service, car was right outside the doors as soon as i walked out with my bags.

hmmm, tempted

I paid £56 for 11 days at gatwick with airparks. Monarch (airparks so same company) quotes me £106.99

EDIT:

original re-quote is £106.99 so exactly the same price. Guess it pays to book early as I paid in December!

It has to be within 7 days in any case. The quote I used was £60 cheaper too but that went up 24 hours later.

have you checked parking4less too? it wasnt much but its less for me. Not all capaks were less most wee the same so i chose the one which was def cheaper!
