Cheap Stansted parking

We all like to save money where we can and with airport parking, there are various ways you can do this. With over four decades of experience in the airport parking business, here at APH, we are happy to share our money-saving tips for cheap parking at Stansted Airport.

There is no need to worry about compromising on security and safety, however. All of the Stansted car parking options that we offer carry the Police-approved Park Mark Safer Parking Award.

Pre-book your Stansted airport parking

One of the easiest ways to save on costs is to book in advance. Stansted airport parking prices increase closer to the date of departure and can fluctuate with availability, just like many airfares. Our own booking data shows that by booking Stansted parking with APH six months before your flight, you could save up to 50 per cent on the total price, compared with making a parking reservation just one week ahead of travel.

The graph below shows how parking prices can increase over a period of six months. Prices are average price per day.

Pick Park & Ride

If you are looking for cheap parking, then a Park & Ride option is probably the one for you. The Park & Ride car parks at Stansted are located off-airport, with free shuttle bus transfers to and from the terminal. Offering good-value, secure parking, car parks such as I Love Park & Ride and the APH Car Park are just a five-minute transfer from the airport terminal and have been awarded the Park Mark Safer Parking Award.

Park Mark Safer Parking Award

While you are away on your travels, you need peace of mind that the appropriate security measures are in place at the car park where you have left your vehicle. 

The Park Mark Safer Parking Scheme is a Police Crime Prevention Initiative that is designed not only to protect vehicles but also the safety and wellbeing of customers themselves. Aimed at reducing both crime and the fear of crime in car parks across the UK, the Park Mark Safer Parking Award is given only to car parks that meet certain standards of security, maintenance and management

Terminals

All the car parks that we offer at Stansted Airport are located close to the terminal, with the longest transfer being from JetParks, which is 15 minutes away.

Stansted Parking Type

There are different types of airport parking to suit different types of travellers. It is a good idea to familiarise yourself with the various car parks and parking services to decide which would work best for you.

On-airport parking at Stansted

On-airport car parks are located within the airport perimeter. Generally, these are close to the terminal, but some may still require a bus transfer.

If the car park is within walking distance of the terminal, then you simply park up, take your luggage, and make your way to check-in.

If the car park does not provide walking access to the terminal, then once you have parked your vehicle, you take your luggage and hop on the transfer bus.

Our on-airport car parks:

Off airport parking at Stansted

Cost-effective and generally easy to access, off-airport car parks are exactly that – situated outside the airport perimeter. Most of our off-airport car parks at Stansted are very close to the airport and are just a few minutes by shuttle bus from the terminal doors.

Our off-airport car parks:

Official parking at Stansted

The official Stansted airport parking is car parks and parking services that are located within the airport grounds and operated by the airport themselves. However, you can still book these in advance through APH to secure the best possible deal.

Some of the official car parks require a bus transfer, as they are not within walking distance of the terminal.

Official Long Stay Car Park – transfer time: 10-minute bus

Official Meet & Greet – transfer time: 5-minute walk

Meet and Greet parking at Stansted

Fast and efficient, Meet & Greet parking provides the ultimate car parking service. You drive straight to the terminal forecourt or designated meeting point nearby, unload your luggage, and your car will be parked for you while you head to the check-in desks – just a two to three-minute walk. Upon your return to the airport, your vehicle will be brought back to the terminal for you to collect.

Meet & Greet is a great option for families with young children, travellers with bulky luggage, or those simply looking for the quickest type of parking. Book Meet & Greet parking through APH to be sure you are booking with an approved Meet & Greet operator.

Short Stay Parking at Stansted

History of Stansted Airport

Stansted began life as a bomber airfield and major maintenance depot. The US Air Force built the runway in 1942 and the airport officially opened in 1943 as RAF Stansted Mountfichet. On D-Day in 1944, more than 600 aircraft were led to the beaches of Normandy by bombers that took off from Stansted.

After the war, however, Stansted went into a period of decline as an RAF base and the British Airports Authority took control in 1966, opening a new terminal extension in 1970. A major expansion was proposed in the late 1970s and permission was granted in 1985, with construction beginning in 1986. The state-of-the-art new terminal, designed by Norman Foster, was opened by the Queen in 1991 and was lauded around the world for its design, high energy efficiency, environmental impact and advanced technology.

The new terminal heralded a period of significant growth, spurred by the arrival of budget airlines, most notably Ryanair, who switched its main London base from Luton to Stansted in 1991.

In 2000, work began on Phase 2 of the expansion project, which would see the airport’s capacity increase to 25 million passengers per year. In the summer holiday season of 2007, a record 2.5 million passengers travelled through the airport in August alone.


A new Training and Skills Academy opened in 2008, creating thousands of jobs, and the new arrivals extension to the terminal was completed in the same year.

In 2013, the airport was purchased by the Manchester Airport Group (MAG) for £1.5 billion and Jet2 picked Stansted as its first base in southern England in 2017. The following year, Emirates launched direct flights to Dubai with connections to multiple destinations in Asia and Australasia, and annual passenger numbers reached 27 million.

Terminals

Stansted has one single-storey terminal, with 100+ check-in desks located at the centre.

Arrivals is on the right-hand side of the terminal, along with a few shops and cafes, ATMs, currency exchange kiosks, left luggage and a bag-wrap facility.

The other end of the terminal is the security area, which leads through to a multitude of shops, bars and restaurants and the main departures hall. There is a fast-track security option for those short of time.

Gates 1-19 and 20-39 have their own satellite departure areas, which are reached by automated trams.

Over £150 million has been spent on improvements to the terminal facilities since 2013 and the airport’s owners, MAG, are investing in a total of over £600 million, in the largest rejuvenation project since the terminal opened in 1991.

If you are driving your own vehicle to Stansted, you’ll find a wide range of airport parking options to choose from, both on-airport and off-airport, including the great-value APH Car Park and I Love Meet & Greet valet service.

Over 20 airlines and tour operators are based at Stansted, offering flights to over 200 destinations in over 40 countries – the most European destinations of any UK airport. Popular international destinations include Dublin, Rome, Malaga, Barcelona and Cologne, whereas the top UK destinations are Edinburgh, Belfast and Glasgow. The majority of flights are operated by Ryanair.

Check-in

As a general guide, you need to be checked in and ready to go through security at least two hours before your scheduled departure time but you should refer to the travel documentation issued by your airline for recommended check-in times.

If you have already checked in online and are travelling with just hand baggage, you can head straight for security to go through to the departures lounge. If you have luggage checked in that needs to go in the hold, you need to first take your bags to your airline’s Bag Drop desks before heading to security.

You can check hand luggage restrictions at home before you pack.
