What to expect

When you arrive at Short Stay Economy - Blue Zone

Go to the Blue car park and drive to the barrier, but don't push the ticket button or you may be charged again. Your number plate should be automatically recognised, but if not press the assistance button and speak to a member of the team.

Once the barrier has risen, drive through and park in any space. Make a note of the zone and row, keep your keys, then make your way to the terminal.

On your return to Stansted

Drive up to the exit barrier. If your number plate was recognised on the way in, the barrier will rise automatically on your way out. If you were issued a ticket on your arrival, insert it into the machine next to the barrier, which will raise to let you out.

If you have any problems, press the help button to talk to the car park's team. Do not insert your credit or debit card as you may be charged again.

Important Information

We recommend removing any hand sanitiser from your car while you're away - during hot weather it can become flammable.

If Short Stay Blue car park is indicated as full, please continue to use this car park, as a space has been allocated for you.

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 £60, which is subject to change.

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

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).
