history

In the beginning, two people had a dream: To provide travellers with a simple, effective airport parking comparison website. These entrepreneurs knew that people wanted to get the most for their money when looking for holiday services, but no one enjoyed spending hours online going from one website to another and comparing prices.

Tim Hagger and James Burrows wanted to create a website that was easy to navigate, informative and (most importantly) allowed visitors to quickly search for the best airport parking prices on the web. Thus, Simply Extras Ltd was born.

Using their knowledge and experience gained through several years working in the travel and leisure industry, our two heroes soon had established an online presence with their new company and received their first booking only an hour after the Simply Parking website was launched.

Working only with reputable market leaders, the company continued to move from strength to strength, gaining the respect and recognition of customers and the travel industry as an authority travel site. As time went on, the Simply Extras team began to increase in number, and new ways of helping holiday makers and business travellers were being contemplated and put into action.

onwards and upwards

Before too long, the same ethos behind SimplyParking.co.uk was applied to websites offering airport hotels, lounges and car hire. Almost immediately, Simply Extras began receiving widespread acclaim for providing a groundbreaking, money-saving way to pre-book travel extras. Glowing reviews from publications like The Sunday Times, The Mail On Sunday and The New York Times gave the Simply Extras team encouragement to move forward and continue to innovate, whilst still remaining true to the ideas the company was founded upon.

when four became one

Inspired by the success of the company's expanding product range and a steadily growing number of loyal customers, it was decided in 2008 to gather the four "Simply" sites under one roof with a new and improved website dubbed gosimply.com.

Fast forward to the present day, and gosimply's product portfolio has expanded once more to include discount theatre tickets, experience days, travel insurance and more. From its humble beginnings as an airport parking price comparison service, to its current incarnation as a "one-stop shop" for planning a memorable getaway at the lowest cost, gosimply has been helping customers save money and enjoy a hassle-free holiday.

We believe that wherever you go, you should gosimply.
