Parking at Cornwall Airport Newquay has been found to be the fifth cheapest in the UK.

Although it may not offer the range of budget flights that some of the larger airports do, when it comes to parking passengers flying from Cornwall are apparently quids in.

Online car sales website Cinch has compiled a list of parking costs at the UK’s exports, looking at both the most expensive and the cheapest.

With 23.4 million people in the UK flying abroad between April and June 2023 alone – a 14% increase from the previous year – what to do with your car while away is becoming an increasing consideration.

Sam Sheehan, motoring editor at Cinch, said: “You don’t want to come back from holiday with a large parking ticket, so knowing how much you’ll pay is important to minimise post-holiday blues on your return.”

Cinch has looked at the figures based on the lowest price available for a seven-day stay in the UK’s top 20 largest airports’ car parks.

It found that a week’s parking at Cornwall Airport Newquay will set you back £60 when pre-booked online – coming on for two thirds less than the most expensive parking, at London City Airport, which would cost £164.34 for the same stay.
