What to expect

When you arrive at ShortRun by Airparks

Drive through the gate and follow the signs to the check in lane, you can stay in your car. One of the ShortRun team will come to your window to confirm your details. They'll tell you where to park and give you a receipt with information on what to do when you get back from holiday. Make sure you keep this safe.

Once you've parked, head to the bus stop and the bus will drop you off at the airport. The bus runs when needed 24 hours a day, takes about 4 minutes and is included in the price.

On your return to Luton

When you return, leave the terminal following signs for Bus Bay R and look out for a bus with 'ShortRun' written on the destination board. The driver will scan the receipt you were given when you parked your car and take you back to the car park.

If you lose your ticket, you'll need to answer some security questions and show photo ID, so make sure you have one with you.

Important Information

Most standard cars (without trailers/not commercial vehicles or large vehicles) will be accepted at the car park as long as they fit under the 2.1m barrier and fit in a standard-size parking bay (2.4m x 4.8m).

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

Help us go green! There's no need to print out your booking confirmation, just show it on your mobile device.

Make sure you leave plenty of time if you have lots of luggage, as you'll need to wait for a bus with more space. The bus can't accommodate large sporting equipment, so we'd recommend dropping any off with your passengers at the terminal first, then driving to the car park.

Due to the ongoing redevelopment works at Luton Airport, buses to and from the airport may take longer than normal. We recommend you allow at least an extra hour for your transfer to the Airport particularly at peak times.
