with lastminute.com is ideal as the majority of people book airport
parking in the final few weeks before travelling, which is one of the
primary booking periods for flights and holidays on lastminute.com.
This offers us an excellent opportunity, not only to increase
business, but also to generate customers who, hopefully, will book
with us again in the future.”

pleased that airport parking has now been integrated into the booking
service. It means customers can cover more of their travel needs in
one easy process - even in the first week of the service going live
we`ve seen a great response, demonstrating how useful the addition of
airport parking is!”
