Newcastle Airport is a regular part of my travels. It’s my closest international airport and I’m able to fly direct to Dubai, London, Amsterdam and other major cities from here. I have used this airport for years with family for holidays. I also said goodbye here on my gap year and when I moved to Australia for a year. It’s the place I return to each time and I think it’s great. Not biased at all!
Recently, I’ve taken advantage of great airport parking deals. It can be the cheapest and most convenient option for me. Purple parking is a site that has deals at airports around the UK. When they approached me with a price for two weeks in long stay, I decided to take it and blog about the service.
I arrived in the morning with a flight just after 9am. I followed the signs to long stay and took a ticket at the barrier. Driving around, I found the parking areas with spaces and parked up. Quick and easy. I made a quick video then headed to the bus stop for my courtesy ride to the terminal.
Car parking is very convenient and safe. It is cheaper than taxis and much less hassle, in my opinion, than trains/buses and the metro in Newcastle. The car parks have lighting and CCTV so no matter what time, it feels safe. There is an office which has staff on the way to the terminal building in case of an issues.
The bus has good sized racks for luggage and there are bus stops at every car park area.
Long stay car park is a short walk from the terminal or you can catch the courtesy bus which does a loop regularly.
Cost for two weeks in long stay was £65. I’ve parked in long stay many times here and a few times in short stay for weekend trips. Shorter trip parking charges are less at around £40 but please check current price quotes.
Purple Parking was a great option to finding some of the best airport parking prices on the internet. I would recommend checking here for great deals.
Disclaimer: Purple Parking offered to cover the airport parking for this trip in return for an honest review. I would use this service again and would pay in future for the same.
