ℹ Getting to Luton airport

From Luton Airport Parkway train station simply catch the dedicated shuttle bus to Luton airport - you'll be dropped right outside the terminal at Bay T. Transfers run every 10 minutes, take 10 minutes (depending on traffic), and the fare is included on all tickets booked to Luton Airport (LUA).

As you can see, if you think you're going to need longer than 1 hour, it can work out cheaper to park off-airport. For comparison, the Long Stay car park charges £5 for stays up to 2 hours, then it jumps to £30 for up to 24 hours. At the Mid Stay car park it's £4 for up to 25 minutes and £9 for up to 40 minutes. So, even if you factor in the train fare to get to Luton, you can still make a significant saving AND park for longer.

Free Parking at Luton Airport - Residential Areas ⚠

On your search for Luton airport free parking, you might have considered trying to find a space on residential roads nearby. We wouldn't recommend this option. Residential parking isn't as straightforward or free as it might seem - there's parking restrictions, potential disgruntled local residents and lack of security to be considered. The last thing you want to come back to is a damaged car, since your vehicle won't be protected by Park Mark security features, like they would in a proper car park, or a Penalty Charge Notice (PCN) because you weren't unaware or misinterpreted the local on-street parking restrictions.

Instead, we'd recommend opting for one of our low-cost, secured and trusted Park and Rides. For the cheapest car park, be sure to keep an eye out for Airparks Drop and Go when you make a search. When you pre-book your parking at Luton airport with Holiday Extras you can save up to 70% off the turn-up prices, and not only that, you'll be guaranteeing yourself a space and peace of mind that your car will be well looked after. And remember, if your travel plans change, you can amend or cancel your booking for FREE so you know you'll never be out of pocket.
