Manchester Airport Free Drop Off Parking
Manchester airport offers FREE Drop Off parking for 1 hour at JetParks 1.
🚌 A FREE shuttle bus will take you to and from the terminal - it leaves every 15 minutes, runs 24 hours a day and takes just 5-15 minutes, depending on what terminal you're travelling to.
♿ Blue Badge parking is available in JetParks 1, close to the shuttle bus pick up point. The shuttle buses are fully accessible to wheelchair users.
Stays longer than 60 minutes will incur an overstay charge of £25.00. Blue Badge holders are exempt from this time limit and can stay for as long as they need. There are rules against re-entering the car park for a period of 30 minutes - a recirculation fee of £25.00 will apply if you do.
Alternative Free Parking near Manchester Airport
If you're looking for cheap, short stay parking, an off-airport car park might just be the answer. To save you time searching online and checking Google maps, we've found a great option that we think could be worth considering if you think you might need longer than Manchester airport's 1 hour free parking. Please note: all car park information is correct at time of writing but subject to change.
The Wythenshawe Forum car park
🕐 Opening times: Monday - Sunday, 24 hours
🚗 Over 300 spaces
💳 Charge times: Monday to Saturday 9:00 to 17:00 | Pay by cash, card or phone.
Outside these hours and Sundays: FREE
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 Short Stay and Multi-Storey car parks at Manchester airport charge £20.00 for stays up to 2 hours and £30.00 for up to 4 hours. In contrast, it's only £6.00 for 8 hours at the Wythenshawe Forum car park! So, even if you're parking during the chargeable periods of time AND you factor in your transfer cost to the airport, you can still make a huge saving. And remember, if you're parking on a Sunday or outside peak hours, your parking will be completely FREE.

Free Parking at Manchester Airport - Residential Areas ⚠
On your search to find free parking near Manchester airport, it might have crossed your mind to try and find a space on a residential street in the nearby area. We wouldn't recommend this option, especially if you're going abroad and would be parked for a significant amount of time. With parking restrictions to consider, potential disgruntled local residents and lack of security, residential parking often isn't as simple or free as it might initially seem. With this type of parking you're much more likely to risk coming back to a pesky Penalty Charge Notice (PCN), if you miss or misinterpret the local parking restrictions, or damage to your car, since your car won't be protected by features such as CCTV, patrols and floodlighting like they would in an official car park.
For Manchester airport parking that's simpler and secured, all while being budget-friendly, pre-book with us. With Holiday Extras you can save up to 85% vs the turn-up prices, and not only that, you'll be guaranteeing yourself a space and peace of mind that your car is in safe hands. And remember, you can amend or cancel your booking for FREE in just a couple of clicks, so even if your travel plans change, you'll never be out of pocket.
