Potential Tax Increase To Hit Heathrow Passengers
Discussions are taking place about the possibility of raising taxes in the overcrowded airports of south-east London, including Heathrow. The Department of Transport has undertaken research which suggests that a 50% rise in air passenger duty would be enough to persuade passengers to use a less subscribed airport such as Luton or Stansted. However, many specialist flights are not offered from Luton and Stansted, and those who have no choice but to fly from Heathrow could be facing costly increases in the amount they pay to travel. Many of these passengers will need to turn to other avenues of decreasing the amount they pay for airport usage, including options such as meet and greet parking services.
Value Individual Parking have been providing Heathrow passengers with such specialist meet and greet parking packages for many years, and are experts in guaranteeing the safety and security of cars for low prices. The expensive long-stay car parks that surround Heathrow can have worrying hidden costs and overstay charges, and parking in an unprotected space is something which does not appeal to many passengers. UK taxes at airports are already much more costly than on the continent, where it would cost just £38 for a family of four to travel from France to the US; in the UK it already costs £260 across the four fares. The meet and greet service provided by Value Individual Parking can help those hit by possible tax increases to save money whilst secure peace of mind that their vehicle is safe.
There are many different services to choose from, with chauffeur-driven airport transfers before and after a flight, valet services and the option of booking a room at the Crowne Plaza, Holiday Inn Junction 4 and Holiday Inn Ariel hotels the night before departure or after arrival back at Heathrow. The main meet and greet service involves a friendly representative meeting the passenger at the terminal building of their choice, where their car will be taken to a secure compound and monitored 24-hours a day. Passengers are free to enjoy their holiday or business trip safe in the knowledge that they will not be charged extortionate fees for possible overstays, and their vehicle will be returned to them at the terminal of their choice upon their arrival back in the country.
Taxes are being raised across the country in various different forms, and many customers and passengers are forced to tighten their belts as they plan their travel arrangements. The Heathrow parking services offered by Value Individual Parking provide low-cost parking options that are not at the detriment of a high-quality service.
