Analysing data from airport parking bookings from the last three years, Airport Parking Shop reveals when the most expensive time to park at the airport is

Airport parking comparison website Airport Parking Shop has analysed car parking booking data over the last three years to reveal exactly which dates in December are the cheapest and the most expensive weeks to park at the airport.

Looking at the average price of a week's parking in December, London Heathrow and London Gatwick, the busiest airports in the UK, showed consistent results. A week's parking commencing on or around the 13th December was one of the cheapest at both airports every year. Parking just after Christmas could cost £19 more per week at Gatwick and £14 more per week at Heathrow.

"There are lots of reasons why people need to fly in December, not just for the Christmas period. At a time where money is a concern for many, we hope our research will help travellers be savvier about finding cheaper airport parking," Alice Fowler, Product Manager at Airport Parking Shop, reports.

The average weekly saving across all locations was £10.53. If individuals fly from Manchester, this airport showed the least fluctuation, so travellers may only save a couple of pounds by picking the cheapest dates. However, in addition to Gatwick and Heathrow, Bristol's average weekly saving was £18.30 if individuals started parking around the 11th December instead of around the 29th December.

The timings of the cheapest parking stays were not the same at every airport. Some airports like Glasgow and Leeds were cheapest to park at the very beginning of the month, whereas other airports - for example Heathrow, Gatwick, and Luton - were all cheapest around the second to third week of the month.
