It was great and so easy to book via the app. Just rocked up in the car, collected a ticket and parked the car. Upon return to the car and exiting the barrier just lifted and let me out. How easy is that.

Very easy to book online. Customer service excellent with a query I had. Very easy to find car park . Whole experience easy and as expected.

Pre booked price far better than just turning up! Approach the barrier take your ticket and follow the parking directions(make a note of your zone), and get picked up at the nearest stop for Departures drop off. On your return just reverse the procedure and the barrier at the exit will read your plate and let you out...SIMPLES. Fast Track Security outbound and inbound are a godsend too.

Everything Holiday Extras did was perfect. Parking was straight forward well informed.

Need to know

Drive to the barrier and your number plate will be recognised. The entry barrier will lift automatically, so you can drive in and park in any space - you can even keep hold of your keys while you're away.

Then, catch the shuttle bus to the terminal. They run 24 hours a day every 10 minutes, take 7 minutes and are included in the price.

On your return catch the shuttle bus back to the car park from where it dropped you off. Collect your car and drive to the exit barrier which will lift automatically. If it doesn't rise press the intercom button for assistance and quote your reference number.


The car park's shuttle bus is wheelchair friendly and there's designated Blue Badge bays. They work on a first come, first served basis and you'll need to display your badge while you're away.


The car park is secured by:

  • CCTV
  • Regular staff patrols
  • Entry and exit barriers
  • Park Mark awarded

The small print

Early or late? The car park offers a grace period of 6 hours at their discretion. Any longer than this and you'll be charged the car park's standard rate of £40. This is subject to change.

Help us go green! There's no need to print out your booking confirmation, just show it on your mobile device.

Most standard cars (without trailers/not commercial vehicles) will be accepted at the car park as long as they fit under the 3.5m barrier and fit in a standard-size parking bay (2.4m x 4.8m).
