Many travellers expect airport parking fees to be high. However, this does not have to be the case. By choosing the right deal on airport parking, leaving your car in a safe, secure car park during your trip does not have to cost the earth.
Airport parking fees vary depending on several factors. These include: which airport you travel from; how long youre away; what type of parking you require; and when you book. Seasonal trends can also influence prices.

Short stay car parks generally charge by the hour. They are perfect if you only need to visit an airport briefly; for instance to pick up relatives. Mid Stay and Long Stay car parks are the most cost effective option for people who have flights booked.

Booking in advance is likely to save you a lot on airport parking rates. Gate prices can be three times what you would pay if you had booked in advance. Additionally, there may not be space available at your choice of car park.
