A comparison platform that brings you the best deals in parking at the major airports in South Africa
Online PR News – 07-March-2016 – Johannesburg, Gauteng – After 6 years of success in the United Kingdom, Looking4Parking.com, an airport parking comparison website, has spread its reach and is starting to change the way in which the South African people make bookings for airport parking while helping them to save money.
Those booking parking spaces at airports in the UK are doing it online more than ever before. In Fact research has shown that almost 80% of airport parking is booked using an online service. This high statistic is not the case for all European countries. Customers who don’t book online end up paying more when they arrive at the airport and attempt to find a parking space.
2014 was a big year for Looking4Parking as the company launched the international version of its website and immediately started seeing success in its Italian and French markets. With contracts and partnerships being secured with big name companies, parking reservation services in France began changing for the better. South African customers have now been given this same opportunity to book their parking in advance while having a variety of parking spaces at airports such as OR Thambo, King Shaka International and Cape Town International Airports. With the use of the website, customers can choose either the short term parking or long stay parking option and they can use the site to compare similar parking services.
Looking4Parking.com is not just about booking parking spaces, we also offer customers a friendly Meet and Greet service. With this service clients can drive directly to the terminal entrance where they will be greeted by a chauffeur who will collect the customer’s car and park it for them in the long stay parking area. This service allows customers to save up to 45 minutes of their time and this service is available to a number of Looking4Parking.com’s numerous airports.
Evidence of success
According to research 60% of French travellers will book their parking spaces within 7 days of their travels while 33% of British travellers will book their parking much further in advance, with around 66% of bookings by British customers happening 7 days in advance and 21% of bookings being made up to 3 months in advance.
To give customers even more services, Looking4Transfers offers customers transfers by taxi, bus, limo or coach, taking them from the airport to where they need to be.
Based on the success of these services being offered in France and Italy, Looking4Parking.com has expanded its services to South Africa, and in 2016 there are hopes of the services expanding to Germany and the USA.
