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.

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.

Leeds GB Professional business flyer
I used T3 Manchester which was perfect parking location for my flight 3 minutes walk to terminal and great for arriving home and quick exit to motorway.
Seamless parking experience will use every time for European flights.
Also cheaper through APh than airport direct site.

you need to make it more obvious which entrance to use. I and one other whilst I was arriving went into the meet and greet !!
Trolleys on each floor would help ( and make you even more money ) !!

It's unclear if your car has been recognised on entry so you can't be certain it will work on exit

Whaley Bridge High Peak GB Simple, Cost Effective, Swift,
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!
