With many schools breaking up for the summer holidays this week, both British and overseas holiday destinations are set to get a whole lot busier.
If you’re planning to fly anywhere in the coming weeks you should think carefully about how you’re intending to get to and from the airport. Driving yourself might seem like a way to save money, but once you factor in the cost of fuel and parking, it rarely works out as cheaply as you’d like.
Not to mention that if you drive yourself you have to contend with queues and the stress of navigating to the airport before you’ve even checked in.
By hiring executive airport transport you can cut some of the stress out of your journey. Just sit back and relax as you’re driven to the departure hall, and picked up with all your luggage on your return.
If you haven’t yet booked your flights, you may want to avoid certain dates according to the Independent. The newspaper highlighted when the busiest days for travel are forecast at the UK’s main airports.
For instance, at Heathrow Sunday 6 August is set to be the busiest day when 257,893 passengers will jet off around the world.
At Gatwick, meanwhile, the busiest outbound day will be Friday 21 July, while Stansted, Luton and Birmingham airports are all predicting that their busiest day will be Friday 25 August.
Of course, you don’t need to travel overseas for a relaxing break. Vogue recently highlighted some of the best places to visit in the Cotswolds this summer, including Bourton-on-the-Water and Great Tew. A week exploring this picturesque corner of the UK could be a great alternative to a jetsetting summer holiday.
