Park Mark Safer Parking Award – Why It’s So Important

Millions of air travellers rely on airport parking each year – and the demand for space makes it an attractive target for rogue ‘operators’ looking to earn easy cash – at your expense. This is why the Park Mark Safer Parking Award is such a vital tool.

As a Police Crime Prevention Initiative, the Park Mark Safer Parking Award is intended to help cut crime and the fear of crime in car parks across the UK. The scheme also covers facilities at Manchester Airport.

Take a look at the Manchester parking services we offer – such as APH Park & Ride – and you’ll see all are recipients of the Park Mark Safer Parking Award. The Safer Parking Award is only bestowed on car parks that meet or go beyond the requirements of a risk assessment set by the police. Keeping safe is easy when you book with APH.

Frequently Asked Questions

What is the best parking at Manchester Airport?
This depends on your travel priorities. The best value parking tends to be off-airport, so long as you don’t mind taking a short bus ride to the terminal. A good example would be APH Manchester - it’s easy to find, highly reviewed and generally less expensive than on-airport alternatives. If convenience is what you need, a Meet and Greet service right at the door of the terminal will likely suit.

What is the cheapest way to park at Manchester Airport?
You’ll find a variety of parking options available for Manchester Airport; off-airport, on-airport as well as Meet & Greet services. Off-airport parking tends to be the least expensive although you’ll have to catch a shuttle bus to the airport.

How much does it cost to park your car at Manchester Airport?
Summertime parking tends to be more expensive than other times of the year, although it’s a good idea to book early as rates often increase as spaces fill up. With that in mind, the best value parking options are usually off-airport. You’ll have to catch a shuttle bus after parking your car but you’ll save when compared to the premium of parking on-airport.

Can you just turn up and park at Manchester Airport?
Yes you can, but pre-booked parking is almost always cheaper. Spaces tend to fill up closer to your stay and as supply diminishes, prices tend to increase. If convenience is a priority, a Meet and Greet service will likely suit. Simply arrive at the airport and an operative will be there to collect your car.

Book early to save on your Manchester Airport car parking    

Looking for cheap Manchester airport parking?

At APH, we can help savvy travellers gain significant savings.

Crunching the figures, it’s clear to see that booking early can cut significant amounts of cash from your parking bill. If your travel plans are set early and unlikely to change, reserving on-airport, park and ride or meet and greet parking right away could prove a smart move.

Booking six months ahead of departure day could potentially cut a jaw-dropping 60% from the purchase price, compared with making the same reservation a week before you’re due to fly.

Putting this in cash terms, an average week’s parking could cost around £77 when booked a week before, whereas securing the same space six months earlier could reward you with a bill of around £29. So, if saving in the region of £48 is tempting – you know what to do.
