Car Parking FAQs

Pre-book parking and you could save up to 70%*

Our car parks have a height restriction of 2.0 metres (6ft 6in) excluding Long Stay, JetParks 1,2,3 and JetParks Plus car parks. Trailers are not permitted in any of our parking facilities.

If you have pre booked follow the instructions as detailed in your booking confirmation.

If you have not pre booked you can either take a token on entry and pay at the pay stations in the terminal buildings when you leave OR insert your credit/debit card at the exit barrier. The card will be automatically charged with the correct amount.

Go to our pre-bookable parking information pages and use the left hand navigation panel to find out about our different car parks. Minimum stay restrictions are listed in the "Additional Information" sections at the bottom of each car park page.

Pre booked parking is charged per day or part thereof. For example if you are travelling on a Monday and returning the following Monday you will be charged for both Mondays.

All prices shown are in GBP and include VAT at 20%.

Car parking charges will also vary according to:

  • The time of year
  • Location in relation to the terminal
  • How far you book in advance

Amendments to the dates of stay are subject to the terms and conditions of your booking. Certain promotional products are not amendable and the products this applies to will be made clear at the point of booking.

Auto number plate recognition is used for pre book customers only. If you have pre-booked your parking , drive up to the barrier, once the ANPR technology has recognised your vehicle, you will be issued a token and the barrier will raise so you may enter the car park.

Some car parks use a system called Credit Card Recognition to allow you to enter and exit the car park. Your confirmation page will contain instructions for your relevant car park. All you need to do is enter the credit/debit card you used to make the booking at the car park entry barrier before parking your car. On your return insert the same card that you used to make the booking into the exit barrier.

  • The car park is fully booked for all or part of your stay
  • You do not meet the booking conditions for that product
