Stansted parking options

What do I need to know about car parking at Stansted airport?

There is only one terminal at Stansted, which makes getting there and parking extremely easy. There are three options available to you, each with different advantages. For example, if you are looking to park close to the airport, then the Mid- Stay car park is ideal. If you are looking for the cheapest parking, the Long- Stay car park offers bargain prices to suit your budget. If you want someone to take care of your parking for you, then Valet Parking is the best choice for you.

It is worth looking at our brilliant-value Stansted Airport hotels and parking as a single package to save money. Perfect for anyone who has an early flight to catch or would like to add an extra day to their holiday.

Long Stay Stansted Airport parking

The Official Long Stay car park is the cheapest of all the parking options. Although it's the furthest away from the terminal with a 15 minute transfer, it definitely makes up for it in price. Booking the non-flexible, supersaver deal will save you even more cash; it's perfect for those with solid plans. This safe and secured car park is perfect for anyone who is looking to save a little extra cash, at the expense of a little extra time on a transfer bus.

The Official Mid Stay car park is ideal for convenience as it's just a 5 minute transfer to the terminal. Parking so close gives you assurance that, when you park, you will be checking-in in no time. Although parking in this car park tends to be slightly more expensive than the Long Stay, you will save a lot more time on your transfer and you can always save even more money by booking the non-flexible, supersaver offer.

Meet and greet/valet car parking

You can give the burden of parking at Stansted Airport to someone else by booking the Stansted Valet Parking service. All you need to do is drive straight to the terminal, where you will be met by a uniformed chauffeur. They will help you unload your luggage and park your car for you, leaving you to go straight ahead to check-in. This service is ideal for people who have a lot of luggage, disabled passengers or those simply wishing to save more time and hassle.

Money Saving

To get cheap parking at Stansted Airport, there are a few different ways to get it. By booking with Airparks you can save up to 60% off the on-gate prices. You can always be certain when booking with Airparks, that you are always getting the absolute lowest prices and the highest quality with our best price guarantee.

For cheaper parking, the Official Long-Stay car park is the most wallet-friendly. However, with all three services there is a non-flexible, supersaver deal, which is excellent for those who have firmly fixed plans. These special advanced rates are subject to no amendments or cancellations, but are a great money-saver.

By pre-booking your parking you are guaranteed that there will be a space reserved especially for you, and by booking in advance you will find the best, bargain deals. If you pay at the gate without booking you will find yourself paying the premium prices with absolutely no promise that there will be a space available to you. If you have left it a little too late to get the cheapest offers, don't panic, it is always best to have a look at our last minute car parking offers, because it will still be much more cost-effective than the on-gate price.

Before you book

You should work out what option is going to be the best for you. For example, if you are traveling with children, then you may want to park close to the airport in the Mid-Stay car park to avoid long transfers. If you have oversized luggage, like sports equipment, then it is worth booking the Valet Parking service, as some transfer buses do not accept larger-luggage on board.
