The small print

This service isn't available before 3.30am. The car park operates until the last flight has landed.

Early or late? The car park offers a grace period of up to midnight on the date you have booked to collect your car. If you go into the next day you will be charged the standard rate of £10 per day. Please note this is subject to change.

You'll have 10 minutes to exit the car park before being charged, so make sure you're ready to leave before you call.

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

The car park cannot accept vehicles with 8 or more seats. If you're bringing a long wheel based vehicle you'll be required to pay an additional supplement on arrival at the car park. The supplement will equal half of the total cost of the booking.

Getting to and from Southend airport

Arriving at the airport

Drive to the Short Stay car park. The driver will take a photo and check your car over for damage. You'll need to give them your booking confirmation and car keys, as well as your return flight information.

From there, it's just a short walk to the terminal while a professional driver parks your car for you in a secured car park.

Returning to the airport

Once you've collected your luggage, call the car park to request the driver to meet you with the car. You'll be given instructions on where to meet your driver.

At their discretion, Diamond Airport Parking will give you up until midnight on the date you have booked to collect your car. If you go into the next day you will be charged £10 per day.
