What is Short Stay?

Manchester Airport short stay parking is ideal for when your trip is only for a few days. Our Multi Storey car parks are great for weekend breaks and short business trips, and offer the best Manchester Airport short stay parking prices. Close to the terminal, all our official short stay airport car parks operate Automated Number Plate Recognition (except T1 Short Stay, which has barrierless entry), so you can drive straight up to the barrier when you arrive and again when you leave, for a speedy, fuss-free exit. You can also be confident that your car will be safe and secure while you're away, as all our car parks have been awarded the Park Mark. Book now for T1 short term parking prices you can't beat.

Prices from £95.00 (8 day stay in Oct 22)

Directions to the T1 Short Stay car park

From the M56

Exit the M56 at Junction 5 and keep right, following signs for T1 and T3.

At the traffic lights go straight ahead for T1, passing the Hilton Hotel on your left.

At the first roundabout take the 3rd exit onto Terminal Road North. Continue past the pedestrian crossing and at the second roundabout take the 1st exit into T1 Short Stay.

Please note T1 Short Stay uses Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) and is pay on exit, so there is no barrier at the entrance and you do not need a token. Both card and cash payments can be made at the exit barrier.

There is no pre-book parking on the ground floor, this is reserved for turn-up only. Pre-book reservations should park on the first or second floor.
