The option now makes up more than half (58.72%) of the airport parking market, up 9.6% compared to 2011, according to Looking4Parking.
As a result, the park and ride sector has suffered 5.2% to 30.92% and onsite parking has dropped 4.4% to 10.37%. The comparison site compared booking habits across 26 airports between May and July and believes the trend will continue.
Martin Mansell, managing director of StressFreeAirportParking.com said customers liked meet and greet options for the convenience factor and value for money.
“We believe the trend is being fuelled by word-of-mouth and the nub of that referral conversation is price. The cost of meet and greet parking has fallen significantly in the last five years and now, in many cases, it is no more expensive than standard airport car parking,” he added.
