Secured parking for your car

There are two types of parking you can combine with your stay when you book a room at the Luton Holiday Inn Express.

Combine a stay with parking at Airparks, a secured car park nine minutes from Luton airport. You can take your car straight to the car park, check in rapidly at the self check-in desks, and then take Airparks’ free bus to the airport - it runs every 20 minutes. Airparks Luton has CCTV, entry and exit barriers and a fence, and is regularly patrolled by staff; it also holds the Park Mark, a security award accredited by the police.

Once the Airparks bus has dropped you at the terminal, you can either walk to the hotel - it’s eight to ten minutes away on foot - or catch the complementary shuttle bus run by the airport. When you come back from holiday, the Airparks bus will pick you up from the airport and take you back to the car park to collect your car.

Alternatively, you can opt to include parking at ShortRun with your hotel stay - it's located just 5 minutes from Luton airport. If you choose this package, you'll need to park at the hotel overnight during your stay, and head to the car park on the morning of your flight. Check in, hand over your keys, and take the on-demand shuttle to the airport while one of the fully insured ShortRun drivers parks your car for you. On your return, just take the shuttle back to the car park where your vehicle will be waiting for you, and you can get started on your journey home instantly.

Our closest hotel to the airport, the Holiday Inn Express lies within the airport grounds and is just a short stroll from the terminal. Plus the included breakfast is a welcome bonus.


Clean Promise is the hotel's brand new, advanced cleaning system dedicated to making your stay as safe and contact-free as possible. When you arrive you'll find hand sanitiser for you to use and screens at reception. Both public areas and bedrooms are being cleaned more regularly.

Your room gets a deep clean with enhanced cleaners too, with emphasis on high-touch areas including light switches and remotes. You'll also get hand sanitiser and wipes to keep.

Getting to the airport

Thanks to the hotel's convenient location you can walk to the terminal in around 5-10 minutes.

If you prefer, you can take the bus which costs £1.50 per person each way and takes about 2 minutes. Alternatively, a taxi transfer is about £7 each way.

Check in from 4pm and check out by 12 noon.
