Why choose Manchester Airport Terminal 1 & 3 Long Stay

This car park offers great prices for those booking longer periods of parking at Manchester airport.

The parking procedure is simple and straightforward. Drive to the car park entrance where you’ll be recognised by your car’s numberplate. An exit token will be provided and the entry barrier will lift. Once you’ve parked, grab your bags and make your way to the clearly marked transfer bus stands. The journey time to Terminals 1 and 3 is around five minutes – but please allow a little extra time during peak hours.

On your return, make your way to the transfer bus stands and take the short trip back to the car park. Locate your car, load your bags and drive to the barrier where you’ll be asked to insert the exit token issued on your arrival. Help buttons are located on the entrance and exit barriers if you require any assistance.

If booking within 48 hours of departure, or if you do not have the same credit/debit card used to make the booking, you should take an entry ticket from the barrier as you arrive. On your return, head to the exit, press the help button and quote your APH.com confirmation number.

Booking in advance was simple. The token given on arrival was orange so we were looking for an orange car parking zone - there were other colours, blue, yellow etc but no orange so we parked in the red zone. Apparently all tokens are orange - the colours of the parking zones are just to assist you to remember on return where you have parked. Buses arrived very quickly on arrival and departure. These are of great assistance as I don't think we would have found the terminal as easy without the buses. After depositing the token into the machine on departure at the barrier, it came up on the screen to pay £112.00 by credit or debit card which was a hell of a shock as we had paid in advance. We had the booking confirmation to hand with the reference number & pressed the button to speak to someone for assistance. Gave the gentleman the ref.no. & surname and the barrier was lifted. We still cannot understand why we had to go through all that which to us should not have happened. Our advice to others - keep your advance parking paperwork safely and to hand in case it happens to you!

Cannot fault our parking experience and this must be at least our sixth time, and even though there are cheaper sites they are not a patch on Long Stay T1 - T3.
