Just returned from a break and found that the benefits of the holiday were almost cancelled out by the hassle at the airport - children getting lost, counting all the luggage, trailing off to the car park? Next time why not treat yourself to a VIP take-off and bookend your holiday with a little bit of luxury? For less than pound;25, plus the cost of parking, a representative from BCP's meet and greet service will meet you at departures and park your car in the company's secure car park. You will also be met by a representative with your car on return. Booking in advance can also save on the cost of the parking. The service is available at Gatwick, Heathrow, Stansted, Manchester and Edinburgh airports.
And if you can't face the fag of driving, you could really pamper yourself by booking a BCP uniformed chauffeur to whisk you from school gate to airport. Starting at pound;60 return, it's not cheap, but imagine the looks on your colleagues' faces. Details: 0870 013 4505 or www.bcponline.co.uk.
