Meet and Greet Parking

Forget waiting for the transfer bus. Those in the know drive straight to the departure terminal. Meet and Greet parking is the ultimate time saver and the most convenient way to park your car at the airport. An airport-approved driver will take your car to a secured location nearby while you’re busy checking in for your flight, saving you the hassle of finding a space. On your return, your car will be ready and waiting for the drive home.

Fast Track Security

Did you know there is a way to avoid standing in those long security queues? A Fast Track Pass is a low cost ticket that will see you whiz through this tedious airport experience. And you’ll have plenty of extra time for duty free shopping and enjoying a slap-up meal at one of the airside airport restaurants.


Airport Lounge

We’re all familiar with the concept of the airport lounge – however, many may not know that these comfortable, relaxing spaces are available to everyone for a small charge? Avoid the crowds and while away your wait in total comfort. Complimentary refreshments, access to the internet, TV and newspapers are all included for up to three hours before your flight. There are even special champagne or spa packages available at some airport lounges, perfect to celebrate a special occasion!

Airport Hotel and Spa

If you have an early flight and want to make the most of your holiday time,  an airport hotel is for you. Ranging from five-star luxury to those more in keeping with a tighter budget, this is the relaxing way to ensure you reach check-in on time. To VIP your booking, room upgrades are on offer; at some hotels you can include champagne or entrance to the hotel’s special VIp lounge. Many airport hotels even have spa facilities – a massage could be just what you need to help prepare for a long flight.

A 70's child, I’ve been married for a Very Long Time, and appear to have made four children, and collected one large and useless dog along the way. I work, I have four children, I have a dog… ergo, I do not do dusting or ironing. I began LittleStuff back in (gulp) 2004. I like huge mugs of tea. And Coffee. And Cake. And a steaming cone of crispy fresh fluffy chips, smothered in salt and vinegar. #healthyeater When I grow up I am going to be quietly graceful, organised and wear lipstick every day. In the meantime I *may* have a slight butterfly-brain issue.
