Short Stay Green Multi Storey

Stansted parking great. Recognized number plate in and out and even after an 11 hour (that went into the next day) delay, the barriers let us straight out without issue. Very pleased.

Mrs Muir, 24 Sep, 2022 (5 out of 5)

Short Stay

Short stay parking at Stansted, easy to find and perfect for short break , walk to terminal 2/3 minuites. Plenty of spaces when we arrived . Hassle free .

Ms Jordan, 24 Sep, 2022 (4.5 out of 5)

Meet and Greet

Meet and Greet is a convenient way of parking. However, at Stansted Airport there was still a considerable amount of walking to access this facility so “Meet and Greet” is a bit of a misnomer.

Mrs Lechler, 20 Sep, 2022 (4 out of 5)

Meet and Greet

All at Stansted Meet & Greet went very smoothly with friendly staff.
