How to Create a Luxurious Airport Experience Without Breaking the Budget
You don’t have to upgrade to business or first class flights to regularly experience some of the elements of luxury air travel. There’s a wealth of VIP tricks bookable online to help make the whole airport experience better – so you can travel like a celebrity, without the high price tag.
HolidayExtras.com, the travel extras specialist, shares its top tips for Very Important Passengers:
Meet and Greet Parking
Those in the know drive straight to the departure terminal without having to wait. Holiday travellers who book Meet and Greet parking to make travel better find that it’s a great time saver and the most convenient way to park your car at the airport. An airport-approved driver delivers your car to a secured location nearby while you’re checking in for your flight. On your return, the car will be ready and waiting for the drive home.
Fast Track Security
Did you know there is a way to avoid waiting in those long security queues? A Fast Track Pass is a low cost ticket that will see you whiz through this tedious element of the airport experience. And you’ll have plenty of extra time for duty free shopping and enjoying a slap-up meal at one of the airside restaurants.
Most of us are familiar with the concept of the airport lounge – however, many may not know that these comfortable, relaxing spaces are available to everyone for a small charge? This relaxing time in a lounge means that you avoid the crowds and wait in total comfort. Complimentary refreshments, access to the internet, TV and newspapers are all included for up to three hours before your flight. There are even special champagne or spa packages available at some airport lounges, perfect to celebrate a special occasion!
Airport Hotel and Spa
If you have an early flight and want to make the most of your holiday time, an airport hotel is for you. Ranging from five-star luxury to those more in keeping with a tighter budget, this is the relaxing way to ensure you reach check-in on time. To VIP your booking, room upgrades are on offer; at some hotels you can include champagne or entrance to the hotel’s special VIP lounge. Many airport hotels even have spa facilities – a massage could be just what you need to help prepare for a long flight.
