    We booked on Saturday evening and we received an email about an hour ago confirming the refund. So, cheers, Wayne. That's free meet and greet which would have cost around £100, plus a similar amount saved on car hire. Now, what else have I still got to book? :rotfl:

    I estimate about $300 of savings. That will buy you a few cocktails:thumbsup2

    I would email them today if you have not heard.

    Do bookings through Holiday Extras count? I have found Airparks M&G with Holiday Extras for £124.99 compared to £129.99 with Monarch. Could someone (Wayne) check that it qualifies before I book please. Dates are 24/10/13 to 9/11/13.

    Managed to find it on Airparks own web site at £124.99 so have booked with Monarch at £129.99 then emailed them as per their website with a screenshot and the URL so will wait and see. I remembered to include the cancellation waiver so can cancel if necessary.

    I can see that, heres what I get when I search from their homepage Link

    OK I just noticed the difference, you have searched 7:30pm to 9am, I did 7:30am. to 9am. Are you arriving at the airport in the evening?

    Yes, because we are staying at Gatwick the night before we fly - so we fly on the 25th but arrive in the evening on 24th. Will that be the difference do you think?

    Yes, for some reason the price is the same on Monarch but it lowers the cost by £5 on Airparks so it should work for you.:thumbsup2

    Its something others might want to look into.
    I can't find a cheaper rate for our dates next April but if I change our departure to 31st Mar at 7:30pm instead of 1st Apr 7:30am It lowers the prices for some of the parking, for example Long stay in T2 goes down from £55.99 to £48.49.
    Still no cheaper compared to Monarch for me on airparks but I will check others.
    Might be worth staying in hotel overnight for some people, maybe use Holiday extras get it free if you find it cheaper on that also :rotfl2:

    Must admit, having emailed them last night more or less straight after I booked, I haven't had any acknowledgement of my email. Should I have at least had a holding response by now?
