What to expect

When you arrive at Airparks Self Park

Follow the yellow signs for Airparks Self Park, its entrance is approx 300 metres after the first blue Airparks entrance.

When you arrive, drive up to the barrier. It will recognise your car registration and let you in. Find a space, keep your keys and remember where you've parked.

Then head to the nearest bus stop to catch the shuttle bus to the terminal. It's included in the price, takes around 14 minutes and runs regularly, 24 hours a day.

On your return to Luton

When you return, catch the shuttle bus back to Airparks Self Park. Buses depart from bus stop E at the airport. Find your car and drive to the exit. The barrier will recognise your car reg and lift, allowing you to leave.

Important Information

Most standard cars (without trailers/not commercial vehicles) will be accepted at the car park as long as they fit in a standard-size parking bay (2.4m x 4.8m).

The shuttle bus can't accommodate large sporting equipment, so we'd recommend dropping any off with your passengers at the terminal first, then driving to Airparks.

We recommend allowing 75 minutes to park at Airparks and transfer to the airport - longer during the peak times (between 4am and 8am).

Early or late? The car park offers a grace period until midnight at their discretion. Any longer than this and you'll be charged the car park's standard rate of £20 per day. This is subject to change.
