There are all sorts of reasons why people travel. With the cost of flights lower than it’s ever been, many see air travel as a viable form of commuting. Of course, many more people travel by plane for holidays, whether it’s a long gap year or a short weekend away in one of Europe’s great cities.
The point is that there are as many kinds of travel as there are traveller. People aren’t looking for one recipe of air travel, and the airlines know this. This is the logic behind travelling first class, economy, business etc, there are ways of travelling by plane to suit every traveller.
There are differences not just in the mode of travel itself, but with all the little extras that can be tailored to your particular needs. For instance, if you need airport hotels or parking there are different kinds, to suit different budgets and accommodate the specific needs of passengers.
There are, for example, luxury hotels. These are great if you’re just staying one night either end of your holiday and you want to start your holiday off in style. You can expect all of the amenities, and you can even combine your stay with parking, e.g. in a Manchester airport car park.
At the other end of the spectrum you have budget options. These are great if, perhaps, you’re travelling on business and simply need somewhere to stay within easy access to the airport. Practicality and affordability is the aim, and they’re a great option if you can live without luxury for a night or two.
