Once your trip is booked, use TravelSupermarket to compare prices on and book hotels at Glasgow Airport - then... relax...
Glasgow Airport (GLA) is one of the UK's busiest airports, with millions arriving here to jet away to destinations both near and far. The airport is not to be confused with Glasgow Prestwick Airport, which is 40 miles away.
Staying in a hotel before or after you fly means you can relax and avoid any motorway mayhem. You could also be snug and warm in a hotel bed instead of getting the family in the car for an airport trip in the wee small hours. See our hotels with parking guide, for our advice on park and stay options, which could save you money as well as your marbles!
Hotels near Glasgow Airport are in reasonable supply and offer good value three- and four-star accommodation. Family rooms, budget rooms and hotels offering a little bit of luxury can all be found on or near the airport site.
There is a cluster of well-known brand hotels close to the main terminal doors. You can walk to the airport from these hotels: Holiday Inn, Holiday Inn Express, Ramada, Premier Inn and Travelodge. Some of these also offer shuttle services.
If you are looking for cheap hotels near Glasgow Airport, consider combining your car parking costs with your overnight stay...
It's worth comparing the cost of a park and stay package with the cost of booking these elements separately, as you can sometimes make significant savings by combining the two. We will show you which hotels at Glasgow Airport offer on-site parking and which include the services of an independent car park in the cost of your hotel stay.
The latter option means you will have to drive to the car park before you fly and use the car park's shuttle service to reach the terminal. You might prefer parking at the hotel and using the hotel's shuttle service - be sure to book the deal that suits your needs after comparing prices on TravelSupermarket.

Taking a taxi from a nearby airport hotel should cost around £10 for a 10-minute journey.
Given the proximity of the airport to the city centre, it's also feasible to stay in the city and use bus or rail services to reach the airport (trains arrive at Paisley Gilmour Street, from where you'll need to take a bus or use a taxi). Watch out for steep on-site parking costs at central hotels though.
