Drop your friends and family off at Glasgow Airport smoothly and easily, with all the information you need to make that possible here on one page, including where to drop off and how much you can expect to pay. Why risk extornionate fees and driving haplessly around the airport when you can drop off like a pro? Read on to find out how.

Glasgow Airport Drop Off Point

You have multiple options when it comes to dropping off at Glasgow. If you're only going to be a few minutes, we recommend the airport's own drop off and pick up facility, located at the terminal. For slightly longer stays, for example if you would like to say farewell to your loved ones inside departures, there is also short term parking available, though this tends to be more expensive than booking a full day's parking with us. Have a look below for an example of the prices you can expect if you want to pay on your arrival.

Glasgow Airport Drop Off Charges

Below are the charges for the drop off point located directly at the terminal. You can pay on your exit using coins, chip and pin, contactless or Apple Pay.

Duration Drop-off/Pick up Prices Short Stay Prices
Up to 10 mins £4.00 £5.00
11-15 mins £6.00 £5.00
16-20 mins £10.00 £5.00
21-30 mins £15.00 £7.00
31-60 mins £30.00 £7.00
61-90 mins £30.00 £10.50

As you can see, the price increases quite quickly the longer you spend at the drop off facility. Have a look below for more options if you think you will need to park for longer than ten minutes. There is also a drop off area located at the Long Stay car park that is free for 30 minutes. Your passengers simply need to catch the shuttle bus the rest of the way to the terminal.

Book in Advance to Save

If you want to spend longer at the airport with your loved ones, or simply want a stress-free visit, pre-booking your space with Holiday Extras can often work out cheaper, as well as guarantees you a space when you turn up. Without pre-booking, we can't promise there will be a space available, especially in peak times, and if you are longer than expected the pounds can really start to add up. Don't worry, if you book a whole day's parking, you can still leave whenever you're ready. Have a look below for example prices of our top 3 cheapest car parks at Glasgow Airport.

Glasgow Airport Drop Off FAQs

Can I Drop Off Outside the Terminal?

Yes, the main drop off area is located just outside the terminal doors, so your passengers won't have far to go to find you. This is perfect for those who won't be any longer than 15 minutes, as prices can become more expensive than if you were to pre-book your space.

Can I Drop Off at Glasgow Airport for Free?

Unfortunately there is no free drop-off facility available at Glasgow Airport.

Where Else Can I Drop my Passengers Off?

Glasgow Airport also offers two car parks where you can park for a little bit longer if you'd like to accompany your loved ones inside, though it is more expensive than booking a day's parking with us. Prices start from £6.50 for an hour at both Car Park 1, and Multi Storey Car Park 2.

Would it be Cheaper to Pre-Book my Space?

If you want to stay for longer than 15 minutes in the drop off area, in most cases, it works out significantly cheaper to pre-book your space in advance with us. Prices for a full day's parking start from £5.12, and you are guaranteed a space when you arrive.
