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.

Why choose Manchester Short Stay Terminal 3

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.

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.

The car park is manned 24 hours a day and all staff carry identification cards.

Chester GB retired 63 y.o
As a regular customer I was not that happy at the prices offered for my parking

from Weds 9th midday to Monday evening at T3 Manchester , it was dearer than my last weeks stay in June

The price difference from my usual selection at APH offsite car park and T3 multi storey was not worth the extra time I would need to travel the extra distance and wait for transport terminal.

I assumed parking would be straight forward , and indeed was reassured after a clarification email from yourselves. Thankfully we arrived in plenty of time. We entered the car park and drove around for 15 minutes from floor to floor along with several other vehicles hunting for a parking place.

After the first loop I tried phoning APH and was left on hold for over 7-8 minutes and gave up. I wanted to see what the policy was if we could not find a parking slot. We luckily spotted a couple walking to the toilets/paybooth who said they would be back in 5 minutes. We did another full loop and luckily caught the couple coming out. They willingly got in our car and drove around to their parking slot , much to the chagrin of several other cars driving aimlessly around. We ourselves were followed and eventually asked by two cars on our way to departures.

What is the policy and why do you not guarantee parking place ...or is it somewhere in small print ??

Ideal location for a short break. Would welcome a few more disabled bays on level 3 as my husband has Parkinson's and finds it difficult to walk at times but other than that everything was excellent.

Signs of car parks are not good. I found it difficult to find the right car park. I was booked into Short Stay Multi Storey Terminal 3. I went to a short stay multi storey at terminal 3, but it was the wrong one. I asked an attendant who was no help at all and said he didn't know where I had to go. I went in to meet and greet car park terminal 3, where an attendant told me I was in wrong place, and thankfully directed me to the correct car park.
The sign and name of the different car parks need to be much clearer.

NuL GB Don't press red button!
Number plate not recognised on arrival
Got (mistakenly) a token.
Exiting- "please pay (another) £76".
Embarrassing scrabbling around for booking information.
The instructions on website need to be clearer.

Parked across the road from the terminal 2 minutes walk, worth the extra cost to be so near to the terminal, especially when we returned to the UK we were away in minutes

Arrived early but still allowed in the car park. Entry was as advised by number plate recognition. Exit on return was easy. Just used the token issued when arriving. Simple, straight forward no hassle parking. Just what you need going and coming back.

Blackpool GB Leisure Traveller
The scores I have given are based on my use of the T3 car park in comparison with the T2 car park, which I would rate as a 10 in all aspects. The T3 car park is not as close to the departure terminal as the T2 car park is to T2 departures and arrivals.

That said, the T3 car park still provides a good service and location.
