Up to 70% Off Gate Price
As well as the Long Stay, we now sell the airport's own Short Stay car park at Southampton Airport. Located only 3 minutes walk from the terminal, it's the closest Southampton airport parking to check-in. The procedures couldn't be more simple: when you arrive at the car park your car registration will be read and recognised. The barrier will lift and you'll be given a ticket (keep it safe). Park in any space and take the short walk to the terminal. You keep your keys so your car will be in the same place when you return.
Walk to the terminal in under 3 minutes, keep your keys and know your car is in a secured multistorey car park while you're away.
At this car park you get to park yourself and keep your keys which means it's completely contact-free - no buses, just walk to the terminal.

The car park is on the airport grounds, a 1-3 minute walk to the terminal.

Electric vehicle charging
There are 4 charging points for electric vehicles on the first floor of the car park which operate on a first come first served basis.
There are designated Blue Badge bays for travellers with reduced mobility on the ground floor of the car park - you'll need to display your badge while you're away. If you need to take your badge with you, show it to the team in the car park office on the ground floor before you fly.
There are Special Assistance Call Points linked to the terminal's service desk if you need to request help when you're at the car park.
The car park is secured by:
- Entry and exit barriers
- 24-hour attendants

The car park also has the Park Mark award for security.
The small print
Government regulations require passengers at the airport to wear a face mask. Remember to bring a face mask and have it on before you get there. You'll need one for each member of your party.
Early or late? The car park offers a grace period of 2 hours, at their discretion. Any longer than this and you'll be charged the car park's standard rate of £15 per day. Please note 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 2.2m barrier and fit in a standard-size parking bay (2.4m x 4.8m).

Due to a series of uncertainties with BA, our flight return from Edinburgh to Southampton was cancelled after I had booked the car parking. However, I now have a voucher I don’t need and am £78 out of pocket despite asking for a refund. I will not be flying from Southampton this year. Not happy.Mr Alcock (Southampton Short Stay)
