Holiday Extras has revealed its plans to operate two brands after its acquisition last week of car parking firm BCP.


As part of the deal with Q-Park, Holiday Extras will manage Q-Park’s off-airport car parks at Heathrow, Manchester, Gatwick, Newcastle and Glasgow. This includes more than 28,000 car parking spaces at nine UK airports, generating 3 million bookings a year.


Holiday Extras chief executive Stephen Lawrence said: “The acquisition of BCP is a truly significant moment for Holiday Extras, and is probably one of the biggest milestones in our 25-year history. The deal will bring huge benefits and new opportunities for business partners and customers alike as well as lifting Holiday Extras to the next level of operation.”


It is likely that both businesses will operate from a single site at Holiday Extras’ offices in Hythe, Kent which may create job opportunities in the region.


Holiday Extras has confirmed that all existing contracts with agents, including commissions, will be honoured. It does not foresee that the acquisition will lead to any direct increase in prices.
