Where is the world's most expensive airport carpark?

Report looks at the cost of parking in 100 of the world's busiest airports without prior booking.

Parking your car in Heathrow Airport for a week could cost nearly eight times more than it would in Düsseldorf or Bangkok.

That’s according to a report by myvouchercodes.co.uk, which found that parking your car for a week at Heathrow without booking ahead costs £187.50.

In Suvarnabhumi Airport Bangkok, it will cost just £22.54 and in Düsseldorf it will set you back £25.52.

The average for the world’s 100 busiest airports is £72.80, about 40% of the cost of Heathrow parking.

The top five most expensive places to park your car for a week (without booking ahead) were as follows:

1. Heathrow -  £187.50
2. Abu Dhabi International - £176.40
3. London Stansted - £164.50
4. Zurich Airport - £162.64
5. Gatwick - £145

In October, Heathrow Airport was fined £1.8m by the Competition and Markets Authority for limiting competition for parking prices and infringing competition law.
