Short Stay Airport Parking Explained

Short-stay parking is ideal for people who are dropping off or picking up people from the airport. It is not designed for those who wish to leave their car at the airport while they travel abroad; there are other more suitable car parks for this, such as:

  • Mid-term parking
  • Long-term parking


Short term parking allows you to pay by the hour, and with Airparks you can save up to 60% by booking in advance at most short stay airport car parks. In comparison with other longer term car parks as mid-stay and long-stay parking, short-stay parking will work out more expensive if you leave your car here for a prolonged period of time.

Length of Stay

You can stay from anywhere between an hour and 16 days at most Airparks short-stay car parks. If you are going to be staying for longer than a few hours, it may be wise to consider our other longer-term parking options.


As with all Airparks parking facilities, security at short-stay car parks is top-notch. There is CCTV, regular patrols, and fencing, so when you leave your car in an Airparks short-stay car park, you can rest safe in the knowledge it is being well cared for.
