Binge-watched Tiger King? Check. Burnt banana bread? Check. Given up on Italian phrasebook? Check. If you’ve exhausted all of the above options, you’re probably trying not to climb the walls out of boredom. Travel is a great anti-dote to boredom of course, and lockdown probably hasn’t stopped you from harbouring fantasies of luxurious poolside getaways and adventures across the globe. 

If you’ve already started dreaming of your next escape, why not start planning now? To get you started, here’s a quick step-by-step guide to planning your 2021 getaway from Luton as an example. 

First of all – where to?


LLA will take you to plenty of stunning holiday locations. Whether you’re looking for exotic adventures under the sun, chillaxing by the beach, or even a vibrant city break, Luton travellers are guaranteed to find the perfect holiday. For a summer celebration, the airport flies to some pretty major European party destinations, including Tenerife, Ibiza and Alicante, while travellers seeking a more serene experience might prefer one of the airport’s many Greek destinations. Rhodes, the largest of the Dodecanese Islands, is a favourite amongst Luton travellers, combining lively and bustling city life with rugged postcard scenery.



Plan ahead


No matter where you’re flying to, leaving yourself plenty of time to get organised is just good practice. And there are certainly a few things you can plan in advance that will save you time, stress and money on the day. Some travellers might prefer to go by taxi, bus or coach, but don’t rule out taking the car. It’s well worth it for the added freedom of making any necessary detours on the way and setting off in your own time – plus, it spares the hassle of arranging your return journey.

Pre-booking airport parking via SkyParkSecure.com is a great time saver, and airport parking gives the peace of mind knowing your car is safe while you’re away. London Luton also allows you to pre-book Fast Track Security tickets online, which is a great time saver on the day. And the airport has a choice of lounges which – you guessed it – can be pre-booked online to guarantee a spot.

Upon arrival


So you’ve arrived, parked up, made your way through security, and now you’re looking forward to chilling out in the lounge with complimentary snacks and travel adventures ahead. But before you do that, you might want to check out some of the airport’s shopping opportunities. There are a few classic high street brands like Boots, Next and Accessories, as well as high-end names like Oliver Bonas, MAC Cosmetics and Jo Malone. And the airport even offers a ‘Collect on Return’ service, meaning your purchases don’t have to travel the world with you.

Oh, and if you decided against the lounge, fear not, as there are plenty of fantastic dining options available. Along with names you’ll recognise such as Bella Italia and Frankie & Bennie’s, the airport also features the Smithfield Pub & Kitchen, Oriel Grande Brasserie, and for a sweet treat, Crêpeaffaire serves a delicious and indulgent selection of homemade crêpes.


These are our tips for planning your next getaway from Luton. Bon voyage!
