What to expect

When you arrive at Silver Zone

For vehicles under 2.1m: Use the left-hand lane when you enter the car park. The barrier will lift automatically after 5 seconds. Continue through the Auto Scanner without stopping - there's a 5mph restriction in place.

For vehicles over 2.1m: Use the entry barrier to the right of the Auto Scanner. Press the help button and give your booking reference to the operator who will authorise your entry and raise the barrier. Your vehicle condition inspection will be done before your vehicle is parked.

Drive to the barrier where your number plate will be recognised and your car will be photographed. Make your way to the Drop Off car park, choose a bay and head to the self check-in at reception. You'll need to drop off your keys.
From the car park take the 5-minute shuttle bus to the airport. It runs every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day and the journey is included in the price.

On your return to Bristol

Get the shuttle bus back to the car park. At the exit, the barrier will rise automatically and you can head home.

If you kept your keys when you arrived at the car park drive to the exit and the barrier will raise automatically.

If you dropped off your keys go to the collection area when you get back to the car park. Hand over the green receipt you got when you arrived and you'll be given your keys. Follow signs to the exit and the barrier will raise automatically.

If the barrier doesn't raise press the intercom button for help.
