Glasgow Airport Pick Up

If you're picking up your friends or family from Glasgow Airport, you don't want to pay through the nose if you're only parking for a couple of hours. Here, we've gathered all the information you need so you can plan your pick up quickly and easily, as depending on the amount of time you think you'll spend at the airport, it may actually be cheaper to book a whole day's parking in advance of your arrival. Read on to find out more.

Where can I Pick Up at Glasgow Airport?

There is a dedicated pick up area located directly at the terminal. You can pay on your exit using coins, contactless, chip and pin or Apple Pay. This can be expensive, however, if you want to meet your friends or family at arrivals and are parking for longer than ten minutes - in which case, the Short Stay car park is the cheaper alternative.

Book in Advance to Save Money

Paying on the day can end up costing you a lot, especially if you want to greet your friends or family in the arrivals hall! Going over your expected time means the pounds can really start to add up, so why not consider pre-booking a full day's parking with Holiday Extras instead? Booking a full day's parking in advance with us is often significantly cheaper than using any of the pick up facilities at Glasgow Airport. For the park and ride car parks, you can catch the free shuttle bus to the airport, and you simply need to catch that same shuttle bus back when you're ready to leave. Don't worry, you don't have to use up the whole day - if you book a full day's parking, you can leave as soon as you're ready.
