    I can only find car parks with a discount included to beat essential travel, the essential travel guarantees excludes parking that have discounts.

    Did you manage to find cheaper parking without discounts and I am being unlucky? or did you take screen shots and email these to essential parking with the discounts and they ignored that part of their price promise guarantee?

    Thanks
  • I am also on the lookout to booking airport parking but essential travel seems to be coming up the cheapest for me too, where else could i look? any ideas?
    It`s nice to be important, but its more important to be nice.
    The world is full of people throwing stones at us. Its what you do with them that counts. Build a wall or build a bridge.

    Booked with Essential Travel yesterday after seeing this thread and the then making sure I could find cheaper. I got a cheaper price by all of 48p and sent the email to CS. resonse received today to confirm free parking in view of the price promise !

    BTW - Park and go was the site I used for the best price to ge the deal.

    Absolutely made up with a nice little freebie.

    Email from CS -

    " Hi XX,
    Further to your email, I'm happy to say your price match has been accepted and £23.90 has been refunded back onto your card! You now get to park for free!


    Should you need to talk to me further on this matter please feel free to reply to this email.

    Kind Regards

    My claim was rejected because it took Essential Travel 3 days to reply by which time the price with the other provider had gone up. They wouldn't honour it despite me having a screenshot of the lower price.

    Hi

    How do you attach a screen shot to the email? I don't have a proper email adress for them only the link they give on their website.

    thanks

    There is a link to an email address for them on that page. Save the screenshot to a Word document and attach that if you don't use Outlook.

    Update. My second claim was approved! Free parking! :j:j

    It took 5 days. I submitted another one yesterday which has been passed to their accounts department today so a bit quicker. Just waiting for a decision.
