How To Get Cheap Parking at Stansted Terminals

Top Tip #1 : Pre-book your car parking at Stansted Airport

We always recommend booking our car parks that are close to the terminals at Stansted. Booking your space in advance is key if you want to nab yourself a bargain.

Top Tip #2 : Book as early as you can

It pays to be organised so not only do we recommend booking in advance, we also recommend that you book your parking at Stansted as early as you can. As an added bonus there will usually be more packages available, which means you'll be able to cherry-pick the parking that best suits your budget.

Top Tip #3 : Choose a Park and Ride package

A good rule of thumb is that Park and Ride packages work out cheaper than Meet and Greet packages. As mentioned our Long Stay parking is our favourite parking service and this is because it offers great value-for-money being onsite at Stansted but still requires a quick transfer.
