Airport hotels, Parking & Lounges

Airport Hotels

We know that travelling with children is not always the simplest task and some of our families like to start their holidays nice and relaxed and, if they have a morning flight, in many cases this means that the best thing to do is to spend the night before their flight at the airport. Knowing that you are within easy reach of the airport, free from the stress of transport delays and traffic jams can really make a big difference to how you begin your holiday and can make things much more enjoyable for adults and children alike.

The majority of airports offer both onsite hotels (some even within terminal buildings) and off site hotels nearby with shuttles that operate very regularly. Please see the individual listings for details of the services that each hotel provides and the hours that the shuttles operate. There are also many which can combine hotel and parking.

We have two partners that provide our guests with easy booking facilities and great prices for very convenient airport hotels. You can save up to 25% with our negotiated discounts.  To visit APH's website click on the link below or call them on 0844 871 7521 and quote 'ACAB' to the operator to ensure your discount.

Airport Parking

Parking at the airport can be much more cost effective than getting taxis if you live any real distance from the airport. The joy of being able to bypass the taxi queue and head straight to your own car is always a lovely feeling, especially with the children in tow.

There is wide variety of airport parking both on site at the airports and offsite, utilising a shuttle. Please make sure that you read the individual listings to ensure that the parking shuttle meets your needs and to make sure you leave yourself enough time to get to the airport for check in.

Airport Lounges

Whilst on the whole airports are improving their facilities the hustle and bustle of the terminals can sometimes be the last thing that you want at either end of your holiday and there can often be a lack of things to entertain the children.

We are pleased to be able to offer our families the opportunity to purchase access to a range of airport lounge facilities, which really enable you start your holiday relaxed and in style.

We are able to arrange access to the No 1 Lounge facilities at both the North and South terminals at Gatwick and Terminal 3 at London Heathrow. Here families get access to the relaxed surroundings of the lounge for two hours, which is perfect following check in.


Heathrow Terminal 3

This flagship lounge provides guests with the chance to tuck into a bistro meal, watch the runway with a glass of wine in hand, enjoy a relaxing massage (additional charges may apply) or play a game of pool in the games room.

There are sumptuous seating areas, panoramic runway views, fully tended bar and freshly prepared food. There are snugs to unwind in and even a cinema for those classic movies.  

Complimentary Wi-Fi, newspapers and magazines are provided for you to enjoy.

Champagne packages can also be arranged in advance for a discounted rate.

If you have a long connection or are perhaps just very early for your flight then the private en suite bedrooms are a wonderful place to escape to for some peace and quiet.

For those who really want to pamper themselves from the outset, then the travel spa also provides a range of treatments including massages, facials and manicures for an additional cost.


Gatwick North Terminal

Here you will find numerous designer lounge areas, a games room, a cinema, an independent travel spa (additional fees may apply) and business centre.

A rarity in airports, you can also access the garden area here and enjoy some fresh air before your flight.

You can enjoy a relaxing massage or a refreshing shower with beauty treatments also available to book (additional charges apply).

Wi-Fi is provided free of charge and there is also a currency exchange desk.

This is all on top of the seasonal menu of hot and cold light dishes which are prepared to order.


Gatwick South Terminal

At the South terminal you can enjoy the crafted bar area, bistro space and numerous comfortable seating areas. There’s even a 16 foot living garden wall which brings the outdoors in.

You can exchange your currency with some of the best airport rates, play table football, read a variety of papers and magazines and, of course, use the free unlimited Wi-Fi.

At the South Terminal lounge you will also be able to enjoy a selection of hot and cold light meals which are made to order as well as a fully tended bar. 


How to book

If you would like us to arrange an airport lounge for you then please just let our travel experts know at the time of booking and they will be able to provide you with a quotation.

As well as those listed above we are also able to offer partner lounges at Manchester, Edinburgh and Birmingham airports and will be more than happy to arrange this for you.

It really is a wonderful way to begin any holiday.


Chauffeur services and VIP departure services

We will be more than happy to arrange a chauffeur-driven airport transfer to get your family to and from selected airports in comfort and at ease. Please contact us for a quotation.

We can also arrange for a completely stress free airport experience for you and your family with our VIP service, which provides you with luggage assistance from prearranged porters, meet and greet at the airport terminal, fast track for check-in, bag drop and security and an escort to and from you lounge to the gate. This is often popular with those travelling alone with their children.

We are also able to arrange for you to be greeted at the gate on your return, be escorted through immigration and customs and helped with your luggage. You will then be accompanied from to the terminal exit or to your prearranged chauffeur.

This is the most hassle free way to travel, leaving you to think only about your holiday.
