The cost of airport parking at any airport will vary, depending on a number of factors. Car parks will charge different rates for parking depending on:
Due to high demand for spaces, particularly at busy periods, it is likely that prices will increase the closer to the travel date you book. Therefore APH.com recommends that you pre-book as early as possible.
Most Airport Parking is charged per day, rather than per 24 hour period. So if you depart on a Monday and return the following Monday, your price will include the Monday you arrive at the car park. Some on-airport car parks do charge per 24 hour time period or part thereof. Should your actual entry and exit times change from those that you have book, as this may result in your actual time in the cark park exceeding the number of days you have pre-paid for (or decreasing). This will result in an additional charge, which will be levied by the car park upon exit or if you call us before you leave we can add this to your credit card.
APH suggest that you book as soon as you know your travel dates as this will ensure that a space is reserved for you. During the peak travel times airport car parks may get full, and booking early ensures that you reserve your space and you get the car park that suits your needs.
Generally car parks can be booked up to 24 hours before your departure, and some car parks can even be booked on the day. As car parks can get full during peak travel times we advise you to book as early as possible to ensure a space is reserved for you.
This website will only display available parking spaces, so you can be assured a space will be reserved for you once you have made your booking. Note: Some on airport sites may redirect you to an alternative on airport car park if your car park is full.

Please note that if you have made a booking for a Supersaver, Non Flexible, Advance Purchase or No Fuss No Bus airport parking product you will be unable to amend or cancel your booking.
Supersaver, Non Flexible, Advance Purchase or No Fuss No Bus products cannot be amended or cancelled as they are sold at a discounted price to the standard rate for the car park and they are not subject to the standard APH Terms and Conditions of booking. If your plans are likely to change we recommend that you book one of the fully flexible options, which will allow you to amend or cancel your booking as per our standard terms and conditions.
APH understand that your plans sometimes have to change at short notice. For most car parks, hotels and lounges, APH do not make any charges for amending bookings. Should you need to cancel your booking you will receive a full refund (excluding your credit card handling fee if applicable) providing you inform us no later than 24 hours prior to your departure date. (Please see our Terms and Conditions for full details).
You will need to pay for the additional days on your return at the car park. If you are aware of a change in dates before you leave you should contact our call centre on 0844 871 7459 and let us know. If you are on holiday and a delay occurs you should ring through to the car park directly as this will limit any delay at the car park on your return.
Once you have made your booking you will be issued with a booking reference number. We will then email you a confirmation of your booking which will include full details and directions to the car park.

Some car parks uses a system called Credit Card Recognition or “E-Ticketing” to allow you to enter and exit the car park. Your confirmation will tell you whether your car park uses this system. All you need to do is use the same credit or debit card that you used to make your booking into the entry barrier and then park your car. On your return insert the same credit or debit card that you used to make your booking into the exit barrier to exit the car park.
If you make a booking within 48 hours of your arrival time at the car park or if you no longer have the same card you will need to follow the alternative entry procedures as indicated on your confirmation.
Automatic Number Plate Recognition (ANPR) is a system used by some car parks to allow you to enter and exit the car park. Your confirmation will show if your car park uses this system. When you arrive at the entrance of the car park a scanner will read your number plate, and if you have a booking it will allow you to enter the car park. If you change your vehicle it is important to let us know as this could cause delays when you reach the car park.
Yes, as some car parks use number plate recognition for entry and exit and if they do not recognise your vehicle registration you may be charged again for your booking. To change your details you should call us on 0844 871 7459 to advise us of the new details.
Instructions for your arrival will be included on your confirmation; however as a general rule the following will apply:
If you book a car park that provides valet parking or a meet & greet service you will need to leave your keys. Any car park that asks for you to leave your keys will have a secure process for managing car keys and the security of your car.
Your time of arrival will be dependent on the location of the car park to the airport and you should check your confirmation for further details. As a guide you should arrive at the car park at least 45 minutes before your earliest stated check in time.
Each car park has its own security features in place for your car, and when you get a quote these will be listed under the security features in the car park details. Security features offered by many car parks include CCTV, security fencing, 24 hour manning and barrier control. Many of the car parks we have available are recipients of the Park Mark Award for Safer Parking. This is an award initiated by the Association of Chief Police Officers, and is granted to car parks which have been vetted by the police and have achieved certain security requirements.
If you book a hotel & parking package your parking will either be on site at the hotel or at a secured car park away from the hotel. Full details of your parking will be provided in your confirmation.
