There is also the option of using Long stay (15 minutes free), which is also only around 200m from the terminal building. Should you need a little more time to complete an accessible pick-up or drop off, please let us know via the help buttons on the exit barrier or at the payment machine. If you need help getting to or from your car, please contact your airline prior to travel to book special assistance.

For parking:

Blue badge bays are available in our Premium and Mid stay car parks for when you are pre-booking or simply turning up to park. Please note that Premium blue badge parking bays are closer to the terminal than Mid stay. If you need help getting to or from your car, please contact your airline prior to travel for further advice.

Frequently asked questions

I’ve pre-booked my parking, what happens when I arrive?

When you arrive at the car park your number plate should be recognised by the ANPR technology at which point a ticket should be issued for you to take, allowing the barrier to lift. In case of any issues, please press the assistance button and have your booking reference to hand to speak to a member of our parking team.

Can I amend or cancel my booking?

You can amend your booking up to 24 hours before you are due to arrive without any cost. Flexible bookings are fully refundable also, up to 24 hours before you are due to arrive.

Your amendable booking is not refundable but will be valid for 12 months from your current booking date. All parking queries that cannot be answered using the ‘Manage my booking’ page should be directed to [email protected].

My flight has been cancelled, how do I amend/refund my parking?

We are happy to refund or rebook any customer bookings that are flexible transactions, please complete your cancellation/amendment online.

Non-flexible bookings are amendable, allowing passengers to make amendments via the online platform.

Cancelled flight bookings should be directed to your airline. If it is a self-cancellation or escalation, we advise that you contact your travel insurance provider.

Parking bookings made via our Airline partners can only be refunded by the Airline with whom the booking was made, using the ‘Manage my booking’ link. Please bear with us whilst we operate with reduced staffing, each request is being reviewed, all parking queries that cannot be resolved through the ‘Manage my bookings’ page should be directed to [email protected].

Do I have to pay if I am picking up or dropping off in Long stay?

Pick up and drop off drivers do not need to pay or validate their ticket prior to exit if they have been less than 15 minutes in Long stay. Drive in, take a ticket, drop-off/pick-up and drive out – the barrier will open for you automatically.

Where is the ‘no stopping’ zone?

Look for the double red lines – this is your best visual aid. The ‘no stopping’ zone starts at the roundabout between the Holiday Inn and the airport retail park and continues through to Premium and Mid stay car parks (opposite the Control Tower). It also includes the road that runs behind the Holiday Inn, concluding at the barrier entrance to the Hotel / Staff Car Park.

Prominent signage advising drivers of the importance of complying with the existing highway restrictions are now installed throughout the relevant areas, clearly marked with double red lines.

Why are PCNs being issued for stopping on the roadway?

The decision for implementing roadway management services was to deliver a safety focused roadway experience, ensuring all vehicles are kept moving. This was due to an increase in the number of vehicles stopping in potentially dangerous locations across our roads and on/near our pedestrian crossings.

We urge passengers to make use of the 15 minutes free option in the Long stay car park, which is just a 3-5 minute journey time from the terminal doors. We are proud to be one of the only London airports to provide a free drop off/pick up option just a few minutes’ from the terminal and we encourage our passengers to use this facility, helping to prevent congestion and to keep their fellow passengers safe.
