Since winning the prestigious Eagle Award for Best Airport from the International Air Transport Association in 2010, Charlotte Douglas International Airport has managed to keep costs low and quality high while serving roughly thirty-nine million passengers each year. The airport is located at 5501 R.C. Josh Birmingham Parkway, just seven miles west of Charlotte's downtown area. Twenty-eight major domestic and international air carriers fly from Charlotte airport, offering direct service to hundreds of cities across the country and around the world.

Long-term parking at Charlotte is the most affordable option, with rates of just $5 per day and free shuttle service to and from the terminals. The daily and daily north lots charge $7 per day, while the hourly lot charges a maximum of $17 per day. To ensure that all travellers have access to the pampering they deserve, the airport offers kerbside valet parking at $17 per day and business valet service at $10 per day. When you use the business valet, you'll have access to free shuttle service, automotive services while you're gone, and the ability to make reservations ahead of time. Although there are off-site parking lots in the area, they can't beat the rates offered by the airport.
Taxis are the most popular means of airport transportation. Although the airport has arrangements with three taxi companies—Crown Cab, City Cab and Yellow Cab—you are free to choose any local taxi service. Fares to the downtown area should be roughly $25. You can also use the money you saved by using ebookers to make your travel arrangements to splurge on a private limousine to get you to the airport in style.

Birmingham is the second largest city in the United Kingdom. Once viewed as a drab and grimy city, in recent years, the city has transformed itself into a vibrant cultural centre. Huge regeneration projects have changed the industrial landscape and canals into a cityscape bursting with hip night clubs, glamorous shops and busy pubs. Of course it is still left with some concrete monstrosities but the city planners have created plenty of innovative architectural improvements to help Birmingham make the most of its heritage. Cadbury's World is a mecca for all who love chocolate where children and adults will love exploring the history of chocolate.
