What Gatwick Airport Credit Crunch?

Gatwick Airport holiday extra products, such as Gatwick Airport Meet and Greet Airport parking, show no signs of the current UK credit crunch?

Gatwick Airport, United Kingdom, August 24, 2008 --( Gatwick Airport Credit Crunch? What Credit Crunch?

In the midst of nationwide panic surrounding a possible credit crunch, it seems that Gatwick Airport’s Meet and Greet airport parking is not suffering such problems.

In fact, can exclusively report that the demand for luxury Meet and Greet airport parking has increased.

In what’s considered a ‘luxury’ holiday extras product, Help-Me-Park have experienced no economic down turn in business. With turnover for August 2008 set to double that of August 2007, the company is growing rapidly, with business across all markets increasing: families, disabled, corporate and white label hotel market.

In what are considered ‘luxury’, non-essential purchases, the shopping bags on items such as clothing and electrical goods are emptying fast as the brakes are put on consumer spend. However, it seems that such disposable items are more likely to be reduced than the annual trip abroad. The most popular sun trap destinations from Gatwick Airport being Malaga, Faro and Alicante.

So why is this?

Sean McCarthy, Director at Help-Me-Park , attributes the increase to several key factors “we are finding that the emotional value placed upon a summer holiday is something that people are reluctant to forgo. In fact many people are including foreign holidays as part of their yearly house-hold budget. Plus the dreadful summer we are currently experiencing, many are desperate to escape to sunnier climes.”

As a result sales in a number of luxury, premium holiday extras such as Meet and Greet parking and overseas car hire are seeing a boast. So it seems that whilst the consumer doesn’t have money to throw away, when it is spent it is spent with outstanding, reputable providers.

Sean McCarthy also comments “We don’t know what the future holds, none of us do, but our philosophy is to keep offering the best value Meet and Greet parking services at Gatwick Airport. Our customers are constantly reminding us how good we are, telling us they are not prepared to suffer bad service just to save a quick buck.”

Despite the credit crunch, Help-Me-Park have recently completed the acquisition of Leylands Parking. This buy-out substantially increases the company’s capacity. Increase in capacity has been long awaited and can satisfy the demand in their unique ‘no waiting, money back’ guarantee Gatwick Airport Meet and Greet parking service.
