    couldn't find cheaper car parking than £68 Purple Parking at LHR - but went through Quidco who were offering 15% discount if booked before tomorrow - saving £10.20 so pleased with that. :thumbsup2

    Thank you Wayne...booked last night and received confirmation today that we would be receiving free parking!!! Effectively saved us £44 as that's what our normal meet & great people charge so very pleased with that but Monarch are refunding £99.50 so that's a big hit for them!

    The Monarch people must be cursing you!!

    Now I just need to convince DH that we should stay in a hotel the night before...prices ahve gone up a lot since last year so he's a bit reluctant!

    Not sure mine is going to work, my 'screenshot' using the iPad only copied the text and not the images and i received an email back at midday saying my screenshot wasn't acceptable as they need an image and to resend.

    So about an hour ago I attempted a screenshot again but could only send it as attachment and I couldn't directly copy it into an email despite pressing the screen print key and paste about a million times!

    When I checked the price again when doing the screen print this evening it had changed but it was still below Monarchs price so I am hoping they will still honour it even though it is the following days price.

    Or I will have to start again!!

    Just found they have changed their T&C's from 2pm today.
    They only price match now, no more free parking, I guess it was costing them too much.

    Please note - Conditions updated for bookings taken from 14:00 on 9th October 2012.

    We are constantly monitoring our prices and are confident in our ability to offer you the best prices on Airport Parking.

    That's why we guarantee that if you find the identical parking for less on the same day of booking with us, and let us know immediately, we'll refund the difference in price of your booking.

    Looks like Holiday Extras still offer it for now. They charge 99p for the cancellation fee.

    To get a screen shot on your iPad - Press the On-Off button (on the top right) and the round Home button (bottom of front screen together.
    This will dump a screen shot of the web page into your Photos/Camera Roll folder.
    Open the picture that is in the camera roll by double clicking to make it full screen. Press onto the centre of the screen and select COPY
    Now go and create an email and press the screen in the message area of the screen. Select PASTE......:thumbsup2

    Grrrrr I have the screen print in my photos and I can click copy but when I hold down on the email reply the little bubble is empty and won't let me paste it into the email.

    I can forward the photo in an email but then it's not linked to the booking, grrrrr and now the company have gone and changed their terms and conditions so I can't try again with a new booking!

    Wow! That was lucky - we were a bit nervous so nearly didn't book on Sunday but so glad we did now. Would have kicked myself if we'd missed out!

    I've manages to send a screen print to them now but my booking was at 11am last night so technically I've not provided the full information the same day of booking. If it's within 24 hours I should be okay.

    Does anyone have a copy of the terms and conditions before the 2pm change?

    Thanks

    Only what I posted in the 1st post of this thread.

    Not read the T&C's of Holiday Extras but someone has said its refunded after you return. Not as good as Monarch's offer.
