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.

Swindon GB Worth it for parking
The proximity to the Terminal was fine, and there was adequate parking space when we arrived. The bus transfer was quick, and we weren't waiting very long for a bus (probably five minutes). The drivers were friendly and helpful. The biggest and only issue we had was that the automatic number recognition didn't recognise our number plate on arrival to the car park, so we had to buzz the attendant so he could let us in. Then on the way out, the barrier wouldn't lift again, and when we buzzed the attendant this time, he let us out but explained that our parking had only been booked to something like 0115 that morning - I'd got it on the booking print-out that it was booked until 1245 that afternoon (we hadn't been due to land till 1145 so wouldn't have booked for when we were still away), so there must have been some kind of miscommunication in the booking and the actual car park. Overall a good experience and would use again.
