Parents trying to avoid the high prices of holidays abroad are now travelling to Glasgow Airport for better prices.
London, UK -- (SBWIRE) -- 04/01/2015 -- Since the new strict rules came into force in 2013, parents in England have been forced to pay higher prices for their family holiday. The rule banning parents from taking their children out of school during term time has resulted in travel agents increasing prices during school holidays. That has made it more expensive for a family holiday. However, UKairportcarparks.co.uk has said parents can now beat travel agents at their own game by booking flights from Glasgow Airport.
The National Union of Teachers has already complained travel agents are forcing parents to take children out of school during term time, causing children to miss school. While the official line is parents should keep children in school during term time, some teachers, councillors and MPs have come forward and said they understand why parents take their children out of school. But until the new Prime Minister comes into office and decides to relax the ban, parents are left facing a fine or without a family holiday.
Although parents do not have to do Proclaimers and walk 500 miles to Glasgow Airport, they can get in a car from places like Manchester, Liverpool, and London to reduce the price of a family holiday. On average parents have been saving over £500 on a one week holiday by flying from Glasgow Airport while some parents have reported saving over £800 on a two week holiday. With Scotland having different school term times than the rest of the UK, parents can gain cheaper holidays by flying from Glasgow Airport.
A spokesman for UKairportcarparks.co.uk said: "Parents should not have to travel such a long distance to reduce a price of a holiday, but while the ban is in place it is the only real alternative."
While the ban is in place, more parents are now following the popular Airport Car parking expert's advice and driving to Glasgow Airport to bring down the price on their annual holiday. That is not the only way they can reduce the price of their holiday.
