Cheap and cheerful is the order of the day. Don't get stressed about complicated parking or your bank balance, save money and hassle by booking with Short Stay 2. Pull in, park up and walk to the terminal in a few minutes, and don't pay the Earth. It's as simple as that.

Reasons to book East Midlands Short Stay 2

  • For quick and easy parking, just behind the terminal, you can't top this simple service.
  • No need to wait on a transfer bus, it's just a couple of minutes' walk to to departures.
  • In sight of the terminal, this secured car park has CCTV and is circled by barriers and a fence.
  • Keep your own keys and leave when you're ready after your holiday.

Arrival at East Midlands Short Stay 2

The car park has automatic number plate recognition, so you'll need to give us your car registration number when you book.

Drive up to the entry barrier and wait for the machine to read your number plate - this can take up to a minute. The barrier will open, so you can drive in and park. If nothing happens, press the button marked "assistance" so you can speak to a member of staff through the intercom. Don't insert your credit or debit card into the barrier at any point or you will be charged again for your parking, and don't press the ticket button, as this will stop you being able to gain entry.

Once you're through the barrier find a space and keep your keys. From there, just walk to the terminal - it takes 2-3 minutes.

Getting to and from East-midlands airport

Arriving at the car park

Drive to the barrier, which will recognise your number plate and lift automatically. You'll be given a ticket which you need to keep safe for your return. You can park in any space and keep your keys while you're away.

Then, walk to the terminal in 3 minutes.

Returning to the car park

After collecting your luggage, walk back to the car park to collect your car. The barrier will lift automatically when you insert the ticket into the machine, but if there are any issues press the intercom button for assistance.

On your return to East Midlands Short Stay 2

Walk back to your car and drive to the exit barrier, which will lift to let you out - this can take up to a minute. If it doesn't, press the button marked "assistance" and a member of staff will let you out. Don't insert your credit or debit card into the barrier at any point or you will be charged again for your parking.

More information

Early or late? The car park offers a 6 hour grace period at their discretion. Any longer than this and you'll be charged the car park's standard rate of £20 per day, which 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 in a standard-size parking bay (2.4m x 4.8m).

Very good but not as good as the previous-pre Covid meet and greet (no longer available). Good alternative but signage for short stay 2 in Airport needs improvement

Everything went as planned drove up to barrier and it opened and 8 dats later drove out with no hassle.

Mr Trundley (East-midlands East Midlands Short Stay)

We didn't see any staff, but that was a good thing, as it meant everything went smoothly & exactly as it should. We cannot fault any aspect of it.
Would highly recommend.
