The parking at Premier Inn Southampton Airport was excellent but there was much discussion beforehand about them/Horizon accepting the booking. In fact at first they, Premier Inn, told me it was a scam. As it turned our it was fine but I believe they are no longer allowing this parking deal.

Southampton airport was as said no issues with airport parking at all. Did have an issue with Blue Island as they cancelled our flight home with little to no information offered.

Southampton Airport Drop Off and Pick Up

If you've kindly volunteered to play taxi to a friend or family member, you can drop off and pick up passengers at Southampton Airport. The procedures are:

  • Priority area: Pick up or drop off your passengers in the priority area of the short stay car park. This is a more convenient option as it's just a one minute walk from the Terminal, however an £2 fee applies for 15 minutes.
  • Free area: for a free Southampton Airport pick up (or drop off) of your passengers, head to the long stay car park, where you can park to drop off customers without having to pay for up to 30 minutes. However, this does require using the airport transfer bus to the main terminal, a journey of around 3-5 minutes.
