With the Olympics fast approaching (less than 100 days) we’re constantly being bombarded with news about the over populated airports and crowded check-in terminals. The idea of travelling at this time of year may be the least appealing idea in the world right now – knowing that we’re going to have sit amongst crowds and crowds of bustling tourists once we enter duty free. Terminal such as Terminal 3 in Heathrow – already feels crowded with an average number of customer crammed in – who know what the place is going to be like once there a double the amount of people entering and leaving the country. This is the biggest tourist demand we’ve ever had – so are you ready for it?
Luckily, and after many years of catching up to international airports, London Heathrow has finally opened an affordable travel lounge in its terminals. No1 Traveller provide affordable luxury for those travellers and tourists who want to escape the hustle and bustle of the crowds in duty free and who want to enjoy something a little more comfortable than the hard chairs duty free has to offer.
No1 Traveller are offering their guests food and drinks (all included in the price) as well as a cinema room, a TV room, a games area, runway views, many comfortable sofas and a gorgeous dining area – and if you really want to stay clear of the crowds- they even offer private cabins with beds that you can rent out. Yes, that’s right – the UKs first airside bed.
In the private cabins you’ll get a comfortable single bed (or bunk beds if you specify) and a private desk, wifi and television. It’s perfection for those of us that want to spend our terminal time relaxing rather that sitting in a cramped all full of holiday makers and screaming children.
This concept isn’t a new one though – airports such a Singapore Changi and Dubai have been using this idea for years. Singapore Changi even has a transit hotel which guests can check into without ever leaving the terminal. In the UK – we’re far from something that advanced – but No1 Traveller’s extensive transit service is getting us there – and has arrived in perfect time, especially with the Olympics approaching this summer.
