Why book Stansted Airport meet and greet parking
Meet and Greet offers the quickest and most convenient route to the check-in desks
Most Meet and Greet services, such as I Love Meet & Greet, Stansted Airport and our own APH Meet & Greet, Stansted Airport, allow you to drive directly to the terminal forecourt, where you hand your car over to your Meet and Greet operator. A licensed driver will then take your vehicle to a secure parking compound, where it will be kept safe for you. They will then return your car to the terminal for you to collect upon your return.
With Meet and Greet Stansted, you do not need to take any transfer buses between car park and airport.
When booking your Meet and Greet Stansted Airport parking with APH, you can be assured of professional service throughout, as well as security for your vehicle while you are away. With over 42 years’ experience in airport parking, APH have been voted Best Airport Parking Provider at the British Travel Awards – 12 years in a row.
Who is meet and greet parking for?
Meet and Greet is a great option for those short of time, families travelling with young children, sports people or skiers with bulky luggage, and passengers with restricted mobility. However, it is also a service that can be booked by anyone, whether you are travelling for business or for pleasure.
Although off-airport Park & Ride facilities are often the most economical parking at Stansted, the convenience of driving directly to the terminal and saving time is always worth considering.
With your car parked in a secure parking compound – with barrier controls, CCTV, 24-hour patrols and security fencing – for the duration of your trip, you can travel with peace of mind that it will be waiting for you outside the terminal upon your return to Stansted.

When to book your Stansted Airport meet and greet parking
Booking advance is one of the best ways to save on your Meet and Greet parking. Because parking prices can fluctuate according to availability, as well as seasonality, we recommend securing your booking as early as possible – especially during peak holiday times.
Analysis of our booking data shows that if you book your Meet and Greet Stansted airport parking six months ahead of travel, you could save up to 50 per cent, compared with making your booking within the week before departure.
In cash terms, this means you could pay £45.00 for a week’s parking if you book six months in advance, compared to around £86.00 if you book less than seven days before your date of travel. That’s a saving of £41.00 – money much better spent on fun stuff!
