Dumping your car at an airport in and around London can cost more than the actual flight to somewhere warmer, with passengers paying £167 to park for a week at Heathrow -- or a staggering £315 to leave a car at the more central City airport.
The maker of parking app Just-Park did the maths, finding that seven of the ten most expensive bits of airport tarmac to park on are in the UK. Sydney's Kingsford-Smith airport took third place by holding drivers hostage for the equivalent of £138 a week, with London Stansted the fourth costliest place to give your car a holiday at £133 per week.
Use its app to find somewhere cheaper and walk to the airport with all your bags, or get a bus, or a taxi, or use it as an excuse to stay at home seems to be what Just-Park is getting at. [Standard]
