Holiday Extras, the UK's market leader of travel extras for the last 35 years, today announced the acquisition of Purple Parking's brand and website, http://www.purpleparking.com The deal has been successfully completed via a pre-packaged administration sale. It follows Purple Parking's inability to secure a buyer for the whole business. Duff and Phelps are now the appointed administrators.
Matthew Pack, Holiday Extras, Group Chief Executive Officer, said: "Our acquisition of Purple Parking's online assets is focused on providing continuity of service for Purple Parking's customers, suppliers and distributors.
"The 36 existing Purple Parking booking agency staff will transfer immediately to Holiday Extras under TUPE regulations.

We are in discussion with all car parks and are very pleased with the response so far.
"Customers should travel as planned, Holiday Extras are here to answer any queries on 0800 083 9689 (freephone)."
