Holiday Extras

Family travel comes with its unique set of challenges, especially when you’re juggling luggage, kids, and the hustle and bustle of the airport. That’s where Holiday Extras shines like a beacon of convenience, offering many great services that can transform your travel experience and get your trip off to the very best start.

Meet and Greet Parking – A Stress-Free Start

Arriving at the airport with a family in tow can be a logistical puzzle, so with Holiday Extras’ Meet and Greet service offerings, the puzzle pieces fall into place effortlessly. Undertaking a recent trip to Heathrow,  as we approached the terminal, a quick call and the friendly parking attendant was ready and waiting to take our car off our hands, leaving us free to focus on getting the kids and our luggage through the airport.

The convenience of Meet and Greet cannot be overstated, especially when you’re dealing with excited (and sometimes impatient!) youngsters. It means no long walks from distant car parks, no shuttle buses, and no stress about finding a parking spot. When we returned from our trip, our car was waiting for us right where we left it, making the journey home smooth and seamless.

No.1 Lounges – Where Comfort Meets Relaxation

As you arrive at the airport, a good 2-3 hours before your flight, you often find yourself with a surplus of time on your hands. There’s only so much duty-free shopping, sweet consumption by the kids, and aimless strolling through shops that you can endure. Now, throw in peak travel periods during school holidays, and you’ve got the recipe for what can feel like a rather chaotic experience.

Fortunately, when faced with the bustling airport scene, an airport lounge emerges as a tranquil sanctuary. With Holiday Extras catering to various budgets and preferences, we recently opted for a visit to the No. 1 Lounge at Heathrow during the summer holidays. As soon as we stepped inside, the lounge worked its magic.

In stark contrast to the hustle and bustle of the airport, the lounge offered a haven of calm. It was a welcome break from the airport crowds, providing us with the perfect opportunity to rejuvenate before our flight.

The lounge catered to both adults and kids, with comfortable seating, a small buffet spread, and a dedicated cinema area that kept our little ones entertained making it good value for money. As parents, it was a blessing to have some quiet time and enjoy the experience while the children were occupied nearby.

When it comes to planning the logistics of your trip, both of these offerings from Holiday Extras are worth exploring, as they truly make a world of difference. Navigating the airport experience, with its queues, wait times, and tricky logistics, can be a bit daunting. However, the Holiday Extras services ensure that your family holiday begins the moment you step into the airport, turning what might be a worrisome experience into something to eagerly anticipate.
