Folkestone, United Kingdom (PressExposure) July 16, 2009 -- UK air travel has increased five-fold over the last three decades. Half the population now flies at least once a year and freight traffic at UK airports has doubled since 1990. As UK airports continue to expand in an effort to cater to growing passenger numbers - so grows the choice in both airport parking and accommodation.
At some of the UKâs largest airports such as Heathrow, Stansted and Gatwick there can be as many as 26 individual airport parking options - representing a bewildering choice when it comes to choosing the right car park at the right price.
The past 10 years has seen a big increase in price comparison websites offering a safe, economical way of booking your airport parking or hotel accommodation online. Starting life as Simply Extras Ltd. in 2004, the industry award-winning gosimply.com was launched in 2008 as part of a rebrand, pitching itself as the UKâs leading travel essentials price comparison site.
Gosimply.com uses a unique and innovative system, aptly named the gosimply rating, to measure customer feedback alongside product features and facilities. In the case of their airport parking service, the best car parks receive the coveted gosimply award - sending a clear message to travellers that the company offers an outstanding service. Ratings are updated each month, ensuring visitors receive the most up-to-date information available.
Tim Hagger, Managing Director of Simply Extras Ltd, says: âMany online sites can overload the customer with irrelevant information and sales talk. Walk into any decent travel agent and they will give an opinion, recommending packages based on first hand experience and needs of the customer. The gosimply award achieves this in a simple, accessible format.â
The gosimply award also helps to recognise independent companies that might not have the marketing budget of corporations like BAA, despite the fact that their service delivers to the customers needs â so itâs a win-win situation all round.
