In his money show, Martin Lewis gives important tips on parking at the airport

Money Saving Expert’s Martin Lewis has shared a practical travel tip that could save passengers hundreds of pounds a week.

The bargain hunter turned his attention live to expensive airport parking lots on his show Martin Lewis Money Show.

The finance guru explained how one could save hundreds of euros by booking a parking space before departure.

Martin highlighted Manchester Airport as an example of a travel hub where passengers pay through quotas.

He said holidaymakers are paying back a staggering £400 a week.

Martin advised people to book parking before arrival



Drivers who book in advance only have to spend £130 for the same holiday, saving £270 a week.

“Airport parking, book in advance. Even if it’s during the day,” said Martin.

“To give an example, we found a case where if you show up at Manchester Airport and pay there, it’s £400 for the week.

“If you booked in advance that morning it was £130. Better still, if you’ve booked before, there are comparison sites for that too.”

He also advised travelers to visit comparison sites to check hotel prices and make the most of free cancellations.

During the broadcast, Martin explained to viewers that the best way to save money abroad is to use a credit or debit card.

However, he emphasized that you have to choose the right card so that you don’t have to “pay to pay” on vacation.

He presented three types of cards that are most suitable for foreign travelers:

  • Chase debit card
  • Halifax Clarity Credit Card
  • Barclaycard Rewards credit card

All three cards have no exchange rate fees and there is no interest on expenses as long as you pay in full.

Martin said that of the three cards, the Chase debit card takes first place as the best abroad, offering 1% cashback on purchases made.

Martin explained that using cash is still a great way to spend money abroad, but cautioned that Bureau de Change cash rates are often beaten by debit and credit cards.

If you choose to use cash, Martin recommends never exchanging cash at the airport and always use a travel money comparison site to find the best rate.
