Motorists carrying out ten minute drop-offs at Exeter Airport are facing the most reasonable charges in the country, new figures reveal.
A study by insurance firm Staveley Head shows the airport charges just £1 for stop-offs from five to 30 minutes, significantly less than Southend Airport - which charges £4.50 for ten-minute stays.
Only Isle of Man Airport can match Exeter’s costings, with Belfast International charging £1 for five and ten minute stays, but £3 for 15 minutes and £5 for 30.
Of the 29 airports surveyed, only three offered free parking for stays - Guernsey, London City and Newquay. Inverness and Cardiff airports offer free parking for five and ten minute stays, but begin charging for 15 minutes (£3.60 and £5 respectively) and 30 minutes (£3.60 and £10 respectively).
Norwich Airport only starts charging for 30 minute stays - albeit with motorists facing a reasonable £2.60 cost.
