Prices & Payment

Can I pay as I go?

There is no need to book in advance for parking, especially if your travel plans are not fixed or you would like to choose your parking on the day you travel. Simply drive to the airport, pick a car park and drive up to the barrier to take a ticket. You can pay via cash or by card at the pay stations when you exit (we accept all major credit cards). You can drive up and park at our Terminal and Long Stay car parks; however, our Valet parking service is pre-book only. All car parks are clearly signed, therefore follow these signs to arrive at your chosen car park when you get to the airport. We always try to have spaces available for turn up and park customers, however to guarantee a space and to get the best prices we advise you pre-book before arrival.

How do I pay for my parking?

If pre-booking, then you can pay before arrival when booking your parking. If you do not pre-book then you can pay at one of our automated pay stations or at the Customer Services office before returning to your vehicle. You can pay via cash or by all major debit and credit cards at our pay stations (please note a 3% charge applies on all credit card payments).

How do I get the best price for airport parking?
