November 19, 2009 13:19 ET Takes the Trouble Out of Air Travel

Preflight Overnight Stay Is a #1 Choice for Convenience, Confidence, Cost

SUFFIELD, CT--(Marketwire - November 19, 2009) - Savvy travelers who want to enjoy, not dread, the experience of getting to their destinations during the holidays are looking for ways to minimize stress associated with airline travel. Jack Lambert, managing partner of, Inc. (, has a few tips for them.

"Instead of waking yourself and your family at the crack of dawn for a long drive to the airport, searching for available parking, and worrying about long security lines or missing your flight, choose an inexpensive package online -- one that combines a night-before stay at the airport hotel, free parking and reliable shuttle service to and from the airport," said Lambert. "Assuming you're away for the better part of a week, it can cost about the same for the hotel the night before with free parking than what the airport charges for parking alone." offers Park and Stay deals in over 120 airports in the U.S., Canada, and Europe. Travelers do a quick search by airport and book flexible packages that include one night's stay at the airport hotel, free parking for 7 to 14 days, and complimentary shuttle to and from the gate.

"The hotel, which is in close proximity of the airport, offers dependable shuttle service to all terminals in plenty of time to check in and pass through security," Lambert said. "You won't miss your flight looking for parking or waiting in a remote parking lot for the circling airport shuttle. With a park, sleep and fly hotel, you'll arrive at the terminal well rested and relaxed."

Individuals, couples, and families often find they spend the same or only a little more and have a comfortable travel experience instead of frenzy. Many pay what amounts to $25 or $35 to stay in a first-rate hotel in the end (for example, compare $110 a night for a park/sleep/fly hotel with $75 for long-term parking alone).

It's a popular alternative and the website is easy to use. Between November and March, Lambert expects more travelers to book a hotel room at than a year ago.

If you don't need a hotel room the night before, another choice is, which allows travelers to reserve a guaranteed parking spot at an off-airport lot at discounted rates.

Customers with long airport commutes and early morning departures have a new option to relax at a nearby hotel beforehand and avoid missed flights due to heavy traffic, airport parking lot congestion, and security delays.

Either way, through, customers often find the cost of the hotel room with free airport parking is about the same as airport parking alone.
