    Hi
    Flying from Leeds Bradford 29th Oct to Malaga for 1 week. Flew from Leeds Bradford last year and paid £34.56 for a weeks parking. Cannot find anything under £45 this time. Any recommendations or codes anyone?

    It's half term and a the price usually goes up the closer you get to the date so might find that's the best price you'll get for on site.
    Have you tried looking at sentinel parking just on the main road before you turn into the airport? They offer a shuttle bus to airport and are usually a bit cheaper. There is another one across the road too but forgot it's name, you might find it on Google maps though.

    I use it every week and it's gone up quite a bit this year
    Can't say I've ever seen codes for LBA official parking
    Change is inevitable, except from a vending machine.

    We always use Sentinel Parking at Leeds-Bradford. I would recommend them. Don't fill the coffers of the rip-off merchants who run the airport.

    Sentinel everytime. Without doubt the best parking at any Uk airport I've ever been to. You will barely ever have to wait once you've landed too, and they won't spend ages trying to fill the bus up, they will just go and another will arrive in minutes.

    I dropped my parents off the other day and it was £3 pound to just to drop them off, so we went to the long stay car park and I carried their cases to the terminal building for them. That's appalling when you consider you can at least drop off for free over the hill at Manchester.

    We live near Leeds/Bradford, we hate the place, rip off merchants.
    We love Doncaster.

    HI
    Thanks everyone, yes Sentinel is cheapest. It is our half term, but not for everyone. Flights are cheap, more expensive the week before when I think most people are having half term.

    I used Sentinel last month... £51 for a week but I booked through APH via the Tesco clubcard link so paid £25 in vouchers + £1 balance.

    Wish I had some Tesco vouchers! I will have to start saving them. Yes, my Daughter is a teacher and her school finishes friday for 2 weeks. Flights are at their most expensive 22nd . Last year we paid almost 1k for 2 flights to Malaga , this year just over £200 for 2 including booking the extra leg room on outward journey.

    Sentinel every time now - it's also easier than using the LBA official car park, practically no waiting drop off & pick up.

    Echo Sentinel- we have used them loads and find it excellent.

    That said I do find Leeds Bradford across the board a bit more expensive across the board. We flew from East Midlands this year as got good deal and better flight times and for meet and greet it was quite a bit cheaper than Sentinel at Leeds for same time period as we are flying from Leeds in 2017.

    Cheapest I found was through the Looking4parking link on MSE here http://www.moneysavingexpert.com/travel/cheap-airport-parking
