Manchester Airport – Travel Extras
Manchester Airport is located on the nearby outskirts of the bustling, thriving and modern city that is Manchester. The airport itself is the third busiest in the United Kingdom, and the 21st busiest in the whole of Europe. It’s the largest airport outside of London, and serves flights to over a whopping 200 destinations. Because the airport handles so many passengers on an annual basis, its 3 terminals consist of a wide selection of shops, restaurants and general things to do. Not only this, but the airport also offers handy little extras for its flyers. Read on below to find out more information.
Manchester Airport works with Travelex to ensure you and other passengers can get the best possible rates for your travel money at the airport. Passengers are able to obtain foreign currency in cash, a prepaid currency card or in travellers’ cheques. The Travelex desks are easily located within the terminals, and are perfect for those who tend to change their money last-minute.
The airport is well-known for its airport parking facilities available for passengers. Manchester airport parking is cheap, convenient and hassle-free. If you book online with ParkBCP you can save up to 60%. One parking option that is becoming increasingly popular is JetParks, a low-cost parking option that is ideal for stays lasting 1 or 2 weeks. It is only available to pre-book, so it’s important to do so early if you are interested in taking advantage of this service. Similarly, there is JetParks PLUS, in which passengers are able to amend or cancel their booking up to 6 hours before departure, at no charge whatsoever. Manchester Airport provides a number of other airport parking options, so it’s certainly wise to check the website for more information on the matter.
Manchester Airport has a unique airport lounge in each of its three terminals, all of which are very popular with business travellers. The dress code is smart-casual, and the price per person is probably a lot less than you would think (check the website for a quote). The lounges provide complimentary food & beverages, sleek & modern interiors, daily newspapers & glossy magazines to read, exceptional service via professional & friendly staff, and generally a relaxing atmosphere to kick start your trip in style. Airport lounges prove to be highly beneficial for travellers, especially before a long-haul flight!
FastTrack is a low priced but effective little service offered by Manchester Airport. FastTrack allows passengers to fly through security and reach the departure lounge quicker than ever before, at around just £3.50 per person. The service must be booked before 10pm the day before travelling.
