Do you have an early morning flight from Gatwick but live 100 miles away from the airport? Does this mean you would have to leave home at an ungodly hour just to reach the airport on time? Well, for those of you who are brave enough to do this, I envy you. However, there is no harm in booking an airport hotel to ensure a good night’s sleep the night before your flight and also, reducing your journey time to the airport from 2.5 hours to between 10 and 2 minutes! Booking an airport hotel is definitely worth considering and I recommend BookFHR.co.uk as a fantastic comparison site offering deals on Gatwick airport hotels. Simply visit them online, input your details and check out the offering.
