Before Your Hawaii Vacation Travel, Park Your Car

10 September 2010

parallel parkingHawaii is becoming more and more popular with tourists which saw over 7 million people visiting the island last year. The appeal of sand, sunshine and general relaxation is overwhelming, not to mention the bragging rights of telling your friends and family you’re going on holiday to Hawaii.

If your flying from the UK it’s likely you will be flying from a major airport such as Gatwick, Heathrow or Manchester airport. Now before you start dreaming of that sandy beach in Hawaii, don’t forget to think about what you plan to pack – and about parking your car.

If you arrive at the airport and have not pre-booked your airport parking, you will pay what is known as the gate rate, meaning your Manchester airport parking or Heathrow airport parking could cost you nearly double the price had you pre-booked. The gate rate at Heathrow is £25 a day, not exactly what you want before your trip to Hawaii, but don’t worry by booking in advance you can pay as little as £6.87 a day.

There are various sites on the internet that can provide this service, where you can browse and compare different parking options for each airport. So don’t spoil your trip to Hawaii by forgetting this small but sometimes expensive part of your holiday planning, but most of all have a great holiday.

    Hawaii Car Rental can provide you the greatest flexibility and mobility in Hawaii. It’s easier and more convenient to explore Hawaii by a car.looking for car rentals with reasonable rates is complicated business. Once the domain of traditional travel agents, comparing and booking one’s Hawaiian car rentals online is now becoming easier all the time.

    @Fairy Tail episode 47 – Oahu’s public transportation is good. The island has one of the highest riderships though, so in peak hours you may have to wait for the next bus. Otherwise, you can get around the entire island on one.

    @Hotels in Venice – I tell friends who come, just book the smallest car on any of the sites. They’ll upgrade 80% of the time if you want…the small cars are popular with gas prices being high and parking in some areas horrible.

    Better Option: The gate rate at Heathrow is £25 a day, not exactly what you want before your trip to Hawaii, but don’t worry by booking in advance you can pay as little as £6.87 a day.

    I usually just leave my car in the airport’s overnight parking area. Cheaper than hiring Park and Fly.

    I live in the NW of England and often use Manchester airport. I don’t think they do direct flights from there. It took me 19 hours once to get to LA by transiting Philly so I wouldn’t enjoy the extra time needed to get half way over the Pacific.
