Flying out of London Airport Christmas day--parking?

Hi,

We are due to fly out on Christmas morning, usually when traveling out of Toronto or Detroit we book into a hotel which includes parking for the week. We live a short drive from the airport and so would not have our parking pre booked. On the airport web site, its said that you do not need to prebook a spot and just show up on the morning of, has anyone had any experience in doing this?

We have never had any problem finding a parking spot...you might have to walk a bit if the airport is busy...but often on Christmas Day it is fairly quiet.

Pay attention to the weather, if it was anything last weekend, there may be snow delays!

On the east end of London where the airport is, they got less snow-believe a half of foot, 11 cm. It was the west side of London that got a foot or more.

I'm sure there still was flight delays-cancellations.

Isn't it funny how we are told air travel is safer then by car or bus yet what happens in bad weather ? The planes get grounded. Well traveling by road would be much safer as well if they too shut down the highways for poor weather, lol

(just thinking out loud)

Given where the OP is located I'm sure he/she is very familiar with how weather conditions affect travel.
