Bloody thieves

Just been to pick up my Daughter and her  Husband from the airport. My, how they rip you off just to park in their car parks, which you have to use. They proudly boast that it’ll only cost you a pound for the first 15 minutes. Would you pay that anywhere else? No you wouldn’t is the answer. The trouble is they have a monopoly.

Because my Daughter’s flight was delayed (Not flagged up on the website till after I was on the way to the airport), and due to the vagaries of the baggage handling personnel, it cost me a fucking fortune. One hour and ten minutes cost me £9. I think my local town centre car parks rip me off at 80p hour, but this is just usury. This works out at approx 13p/min.

North and South Terminal short stay prices

Up to 15 Minutes                               £1.00

15 Minutes - 30 Minutes                 £2.80

30 Minutes - 1 Hour                          £5.60

1 - 2 hours                                             £9.00

2 - 3 hours                                             £11.50

3 - 4 hours                                             £14.70

4 - 5 hours                                             £18.00

5 - 6 hours                                             £21.00

6 - 9 hours                                             £25.00

9 - 12 hours                                           £30.00

12 - 24 hours                                         £32.50

Each 24 hour period thereafter    £32.50

The long stay car parks are not much better, and that’s why going on holiday in a couple of weeks time it makes sense to use a taxi service.


I feel another letter to my MP is needed. (I’m still waiting for an answer to the last one I wrote to him). He’s probably labelled me as an Anarchist. so if this blogger stops posting just google “Pentonville Inmates”. You’re sure to find me.
