Where can I park my car?

We have a choice of on-site car parks to suit your budget and travel plans -see car parking map.

For dropping-off passengers, use the 'Drop & Go' area immediately outside the terminal.  This costs £1 for up to 10 minutes.  Alternatively you can park for 15 minutes free in Car Park 5, a short walk or bus ride from the terminal building.

As it is sometimes difficult to estimate how long it will take for your passengers to arrive, we recommend using Car Parks 1,2, or 3 for picking up passengers. These car parks are located conveniently near the arrivals area.  Car Parks 1, 2 and 3 also offer an option for longer-term parking.  These car parks offer under cover parking, within a minutes' walk of the terminal building.

Alternatively those travelling to the Airport can also use Car Park 5.  This surface car park offers great value for money, within a 10 minute walk or a short courtesy bus ride from the terminal building.

Our Premium Meet & Greet service is ideal if you're looking for the fastest route to the check-in desks.  Simply drop-off your car with our dedicated team, directly outside the terminal building.  The vehicle is then stored securely until your return date, when it will be waiting for you when you step off your flight.

All our car parks can be pre-booked online or by phone.  Guarantee your parking space with us and enjoy a hassle free start to your journey.

Blue Badge holders are entitled to up to 60 minutes free parking within the Drop & Go area upon production of their Blue Badge and car parking ticket prior to exit at the NCP customer services desk located within the Meet & Greet cabin now situated within the Drop & Go area. Normal charges apply if the 60 minutes is exceeded.
