Manchester Airport Parking
Manchester Airport is one of the busiest in the UK and caters for travellers driving to the airport with an extensive range of car parking options from Meet & Greet Valet parking, short stay and long stay parking to hotels with parking packages included.
Short Stay & Long Stay
For short stay parking of less than 24 hours there is the multi-storey car park. This car park is undercover and only a short walk to check-in. Its ideal for dropping off and picking up friends and family or for a short business trip.
For stays of more than 24 hours we recommend the long stay car parks, which are more cost effective but still only 5-10 minutes transfer time with a free shuttle bus every 10 mins. Alternatively, you can walk to the terminals from these on-airport car parks and depending on where you’ve found a space for your car it should take between 5-15 minutes.
For longer stays of 7 days or more you can get better rates with the off-airport car parks. These operate a free shuttle bus running every 15 mins and taking between 5-15 to get to the terminals.
Meet & Greet and Valet Parking
The most convenient of all car parking options is Meet & Greet or Valet Parking. You simply drive to your departure terminal. An official chauffeur will take your car to a secure storage area and return your car to you upon your return. What could be simpler and quicker!.
Airport Hotels with Parking
Another popular parking option is to take advantage of some great value hotel deals which include car parking to make a hotel with parking package. A good idea for travellers with a long drive to Manchester Airport and an early flight, or a late return. You can have a restful night in a nearby hotel safe in the knowledge that you won’t miss that early flight!
