- Slightly confusing airport signage made us question if we had the correct car park but while process went with out hiccup
Published on: 25 September 2016
The Short Stay Terminal 3 car park at Manchester Airport is perfect for passengers who require a short-term stay at a self-serve car park that’s ideally located for fast and easy access to the check-in desks.
Whether you're nipping off for a romantic break or travelling on a short business trip, this self-serve car park is ideal for passengers with a lighter luggage capacity. There are no transfer buses, either.
Arriving at the car park, you’ll have your booking confirmed and an exit token will be issued for when you return. Once in, find a parking space, unload your bags and take the short walk to the terminal building.
Car Valeting is available at Manchester Airport Terminal 3 Short Stay car park. Please book this service upon your arrival at the car park.
On your return, simply make your way back to the car park, drive to the barrier and enter your exit token. If you encounter any problems – such as a mislaid token – just push the 24-hour assistance button on the barrier and a member of staff will be happy to help. The car park is manned 24 hours a day and all staff carry identification cards.
There is a minimum stay of three days.
Please be aware of peak times at the airport and allow time to check-in for your flight.
A car valeting service is available which you can book with a member of staff on arrival.
Trailers, motor homes and transit vans are not accepted at this car park. There is also a height restriction in place.
Please note: The notice period for any changes to bookings made is 24 hours prior to departure date. This avoids incurring extra charges.
Manchester Airport is clearly signposted from all the approaching motorways. The M60 orbital is the main motorway which circles the city of Manchester. The M6, M62 and M56 all connect from the orbital and Manchester Airport is easily accessible from all connecting motorways. As you enter the airport concourse, follow the signs for Terminal 3 short stay car park.
