FAQs

Are You Allowed To Park Near An Airport?

The short answer is yes. We offer many car parks near to airports. These are called on airport car parks because they are located usually within an airport’s perimeter e.g. the land immediately around an airport and owned by the airport. However, you may be looking for free on street parking near an airport. This is very difficult to achieve as any land is used for paid car parking and also not recommended as local people react badly to motorists parking in their streets.

How Long Is Short Stay In Airport Car Park?

Short stay parking is best for people dropping off or collecting people at the airport. The hourly cost can be quite high, so often it works out cheaper to pay for long stay parking. However, short stay parking is more convenient as the car parks are situated close to the airport terminals and usually only walking distance away.

Are Airport Car Parks Safe?

Most of the airport car parks we offer have Park Mark Awards. It is a police crime prevention initiative to promote safety in car parks from both crime and fear of crime in car parks. Operators are assessed to ensure they are properly maintained and managed.
Although our car parks make every effort to be safe places to leave you car, you should also make sure you don’t leave valuables visible to avoid temptation for criminals. Take any personal possessions with you or if you can’t and your car has a boot then lock valuables away there.
For your personal safety, the meet and greet service is best as you’ll be met by a driver and then have a very short walk to the terminal.

There are no restrictions on roof boxes. Only height restrictions. Check details when booking.
