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.

From the car park it's a 3-minute walk to the terminal.

On your return walk back to the car park from the terminal. 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.


If you require Blue Badge bays, you will need to either book Orange or Green Short Stay car park.


The car park is secured by:

  • CCTV
  • Floodlighting
  • Security barriers
  • 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 £62 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).

While our prices are cheaper than those you'd pay at the airport, the shortest time we can offer parking for is 24 hours. If you're parking for less time, it may be cheaper to pay when you arrive. We can't offer a refund if you book through us and find the price at the car park is less.
