NCP has launched a limited-time airport parking sale.

NCP is offering a 5% discount until Friday when you book any of the following airport car parks:

  • Birmingham Car Park 1 and Car Park 2 & 3
  • Norwich Short Stay and Long Stay
  • Edinburgh Scotpark
  • Glasgow Short Stay Car Park 2 and Long Stay
  • Heathrow – Flightpath T2/3 and Hilton T4/5

NCP airport parking discount code

It is valid for bookings of 5+ days, for parking which begins between 1st and 31st August.  It only applies to refundable rates.

You need to use promo code AUGFLY5A but this will be added automatically if you book via this link.

We wrote an article on the NCP at Hilton T4/5 here.  This car park is particularly good for Terminal 5 because the hotel is nearby and you get a free ticket for the Hotel Hoppa bus.  It is also relatively cheap because it is off-airport.

    OT: Azuma in Edinburgh starting today, some events going on today to celebrate. For now only one train per day in each direction. From what I read, I guess it’running on dirty power north of Darlington due to the signal issues.

    • Mike says:

      Is it replacing an HST diagram (either directly or indirectly)? If so then potentially it’s still much cleaner.

    • BJ says:

      Outwards from EDB us the Flying Scotsman service before 6am I believe do I guess not. Out from KGX us gge 17;30 IIRC so it will just be overnight in Edinburgh to operate the return journey.

      • RussellH says:

        0540 off Waverly, due Kings X 0940.
        Return Kings X 1730. Arrival time Waverly not stated in my source.
        Saturday it will be 0655 off Waverly and 1230 off Kings X
        Sunday 0900 off Waverly, 1430 off Kings X

    • RussellH says:

      The Class 800/1 sets were cleared for electric use to Darlington back in May; As Network Rail have been installing filters north of Darlington since then, I would assume that 1 Aug was chosen for the start date on the basis that installation would have been completed by then. It is two months…
      Hitachi are also retro-fitting filters on the trains themselves. Belt + braces.
      But there is nothing definite in what I am reading, so thery might have to start off Waverly in diesel mode. It is timed as a four hour run, which would be very very difficult if they had to run very far on diesel.

      • BJ says:

        Might take a day trip to Newcastle and York and catch the northbound service Honda to give it a try.

  • Kip says:

    O/T: Aegean 50% bonus when purchasing miles until 8/8.

  • Rob says:

    What’s the key word here? Oh yes, Turkish. This means he can’t buy Thomas Cook because he can’t buy a European airline.

    • TGLoyalty says:

      I’m sure he can buy himself a Greek or Cypriot passport if he hasn’t got one already or be happy with a significant but less than 50% stake.

      • TGLoyalty says:

        * maybe not Greek lol but there are a few EU states that allow that with significant investment in the country.

        • Lady London says:

          There are other ways too. As I think you hinted TGLoyalty. And not just the two countries mentioned.

      • BJ says:

        Or Maltese, or British, not that the latter might be much use for anything much longer.

    • RussellH says:

      Maybe he does not want the airline, just the tour operation business. There are a significant number of Turks involved in UK based tour operation.

  • Geoff says:

    Can someone state the June / Nectar / LNER offer please – I booked 2 tickets in June but only have the base points awarded.

  • nick says:

    anyway to get a free breakfast on a marriott gold status?

    Do i have to get lucky and hope get upgraded to an exec room with lounge access to get some food on the house?

    • Alex W says:

      Very lucky I would say! Can be denied lounge excess even if upgraded to an exec room. No harm asking when you check in though.

    • Lee says:

      Almost impossible.

  • pauldb says:

    I have a 25% conversion bonus showing on my HSBC card. Exactly the same as last year I think: valid 1-31 August,

    • New Card says:

      Where do you see this? I had a look in my account and couldn’t find reference to the bonus.

      • pauldb says:

        When I log-in to the website, it’s a banner in the bottom right. Not visible in the app.

        • New Card says:

          Thanks. Not showing for me but the link to the Ts and Cs from HfP 2018 article works and has been updated to 2019.

        • Paul says:

          Thanks for sharing the HSBC offer 🙂

  • NICKA says:

    A real newbie question:

    On a BA Rewards Flight Saver -I am getting following options for a one way club europe flight:

    22500 Avios + £ 12.50
    20000 Avios + £ 25.00
    14600 Avios + £ 70.50
    12800 Avios + £ 80.50
    11000 Avios + £ 95.50

    How to value/judge this?

    Is the clear winner going for the 11000 avios + £95?

    • sean says:

      Really depends on how many avios you have/what value you ascribe to them.
      If 1p each then yes 11000+95 is the “winner”.

      At 0.75p though then 20000 +25 is a winner.

    • Rob says:

      The winner is usually the ‘old style’ option is 20k + £25 although in your case I agree that 11k + £95 is attractive.

    • Gavin says:

      I value Avios at 1p, so in my case the prices are:

      22500 Avios + £ 12.50 = £237.50
      20000 Avios + £ 25.00 = £225.00
      14600 Avios + £ 70.50 = £216.50
      12800 Avios + £ 80.50 = £208.50
      11000 Avios + £ 95.50 = £205.50

      I made a booking in Euro Traveller recently (LHR – BUD) and the least avios option was the best value in that case, too.

  • Chris says:

    OT Hertz – the article (very good) written by charlieface suggests that Hertz are often OK with back to back rentals without returning to the counter between – key if you’re doing award rentals as they’re limited to a single week each.

    Any anecdotal evidence out there about what the actual success rate is? I wouldn’t much fancy being lumped with an 8 hour round trip in the middle of a break if Madrid said no, for example…
