What to expect

When you arrive at Long Stay

Pull up to the car park's barrier - it will read your number plate, dispense a ticket and open for you. If it doesn't, then it will not have recognised your number plate and you will be charged again for your parking. If this happens, press the button to talk to the car park's team.

When you're ready, catch the car park's bus to the terminal. It takes 15 minutes, runs every 15 minutes, 24 hours a day, and is included in the price.

On your return to Stansted

Catch the bus back to the car park from where it dropped you off. Tell the driver where you parked and they'll try to drop you off nearby.

When you've collected your car, drive to the barrier and it will open to let you out. If the barrier doesn't open, press the button to speak to someone at the car park.

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). If you have an oversized vehicle just head for zone Q.

Early or late? The car park offers a grace period of 6 hours at their discretion. Any longer than this and you'll be charged the car park's standard rate of £23.50 (May-Sept) or £21.50 (Oct-Apr) - these are subject to change.

There are 6 bays for Blue Badge holders in zone Q, and 34 bays in zone D. If signs are up saying these zones are closed, Blue Badge holders are still free to enter and park in the designated spaces. Just be sure to press the assistance button at the zone's bus stop to ask for the bus to pick you up.
