Peak season travellers or those going away for a long period of time can benefit from our Long Stay parking with excellent value for money and security. We’ve kept the process as simple as possible to give you a stress-free start to your trip.

Arriving at the airport

Parking at Long Stay couldn’t be simpler. Drive up to the barrier and wait for your registration to be scanned, where a ticket will be printed with your booking reference. From here, follow the signs to the open parking zone and find a space.

If a ticket is not printed automatically, press the button. Please keep your ticket safe, and check whether a reference has been printed on it. If it hasn’t, you’ll need to ensure your booking is checked and your ticket is validated before you leave the car park.

Getting to the terminal

Once you have parked, head to the nearest bus stop before jumping on the free shuttle bus which will take you directly to the terminal. It usually takes between 5–10 minutes to reach the North Terminal and 7–12 minutes to reach the South Terminal for you to go straight to check-in.

Please bear in mind that during peak holiday times the shuttles may be busier than usual, so you should allow an extra few minutes. Buses run every 10 to 12 minutes so you shouldn't have to wait too long to get your trip started.

Collecting your car from Long Stay

When you return, hop on one of the regular shuttle buses directly to the Long Stay car park. Our shuttle buses run throughout the day and night, perfect if you have a late-night flight.
