I am due to visit a hotel in Birmingham so decided to enquire what parking facilities they had for disabled clients. "The hotel does not have its own car park but there is an NCP car park nearby". I also noticed the hotel offered valet car parking so I enquired what this entailed £25 fee for a person to park your car and pay the £14 24 hour car parking charge in the NCP car park. £11 for someone to park your car!!!
Luckily for me my appointment is no longer than an hour and Steve has said he will drop me off and pick me up after it.
So I am glad I looked into the pros and cons of where the hotel was situated and what car parking facilities there were.
It just pays to plan ahead and work out a journey on whether something is worthwhile or not. As you can see planning is the secret to success. This applies to writing too.
