Manchester Short Stay Terminal 3

address Hale Top House, Manchester Airport (MAN) Manchester, M90 1QX.

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.

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.

It was a very easy and cost effective process and I'll definitely use APH Airport parking again.

I've always used APH off-airport parking for my holidays and this is the first time I've used

it for business at Terminal 3 - it was a good experience with no hiccups and I would

thoroughly recommend it!

Very confusing between the T3 carparks, could not find the car for over 1 1/2 hrs until someone explained that it was a split level in two parts and you could not get from one to the other. A very kind employee helped us and we eventually found the car.

Decided to try the short stay car park as it is covered - didn't want to return after two weeks to find the car under snow or iced up!
The only problem I had was when I arrived at the entrance and the camera didn't recognise the reg. number so I had to press the button for a token. The staff behind the help button were really friendly and helpful and I would definitely use this service again.

Exit process was difficult and time wasting. The token did not work and the car park employee could not find the booking made with APH so was reluctant to let me exit. Time saved by not going to Sharston APH was lost!

Mixed feelings about this. Service in itself was fine but I was charged £20 for 19 minutes overstay as my flight was slightly delayed. I thought this was outrageous.

Only one criticism: it took a while to find a free space - we wonder if anything could be done to facilitate this.

Parking next to the terminal (Manchester T3) for the same price as the parking where you wait for buses etc. is definitely preferred.

In the car on the way home only 10 minutes after clearing customs was welcome.

Formby, Merseyside GB
very good, however signage and pedestrian access around the park (Short stay 3) could be better, I ended up in an open ground park with no access to the terminal without walking through the ground floor of the multi story or walk through the meet and greet area, again on the roadways.
Likewise my return was as above and take my chance!
Crossing the taxi drop off point at Terminal 3 is at best hazardous!
