Holidaymakers should carry out more research before choosing their meet and greet airport parking firm – that’s the view of Essex County Council’s Trading Standards after a number of complaints were lodged with their team about the service.
Astonishingly, according to Trading Standards, some travellers have returned from holiday to find their car had clocked up hundreds of additional miles, whilst, in some cases, certain unscrupulous meet and greet provider’s claims of “secure parking” were found to be a field or a street close to the airport.
Other customers were horrified to find that their car had been damaged or personal belongings had been stolen while they were away.
But how do you make sure you choose an airport parking firm you can really trust?
Simply look for a provider who operates under the Buy With Confidence scheme – just like I Love meet and greet at Stansted and Gatwick airports – which means they are vetted and approved by Trading Standards to ensure they operate in a legal, honest and fair way.
Admittedly, there are a thousand and one things to organise when planning a trip abroad, but Roger Walters from Essex County Council has advised holidaymakers not to simply look at the price and availability of meet and greet parking, but to read the small print before you commit.
Here at I Love, we’ve been parking cars for almost 30 years, and our reputation as a trustworthy meet and greet provider is beyond reproach. We aim to provide you with the best possible service at competitive prices, and we’ll make certain that your car is always well looked after.
So the next time you jet off on holiday and require airport parking, you can buy with confidence from I love – and that’s a guarantee!
