Why choose Short Stay

Located right across from the terminal building, Short Stay offers quick and convenient parking for anyone running on a tight schedule. If you're off on a short trip, or have heavy luggage; this is the ideal car park for you.

Self-park is as simple as driving up to the barrier - where the automatic numberplate recognition system will confirm your booking - and finding a space. Once you're parked up, just lock your car, grab your bags and you'll be at the check-in desk in mere moments.

Picking up your car is just as easy; a short stroll back the car park and you are ready to go. The car park is a holder of the Park Mark Safer Parking Award and is watched over by 24-hour CCTV so you can enjoy your trip knowing that your car is being well looked after.

Rotherham GB
Paid more than a friend travelling with who managed to book the meet and greet service. Both had the same voucher code so don't know why. Not happy with that. Also couldn't get out of car park. Number recognition didn't pick up the plate. Told to press assistance button but it's actually a small plate with a telephone on which you can't see in the dark. Change your info to state 'telephone'.
