While you’re jetting off to see the world, it’d be nice to know your car was parked somewhere safe, waiting for your return.  

If you’re getting a Manchester airport transfer, you could always park your car on your driveway or in the street. But, unless you’ve got a secure garage, you run the risk of leaving it vulnerable to eagle-eyed thieves.  

But don't panic! Planning on driving yourself to the airport? Then Manchester airport parking could be your answer. 

Manchester airport parking 

Manchester’s airport parking covers a large area with over 22,000 spaces. That’s a lot!  

Manchester Airport has 16 car parks available for its customers, staff and partners to use. You can choose to pre-book your airport parking by using a comparison site (like ours) to compare the most suitable car parking options for cheap prices.  

From drop-offs to long stay to meet and greet, Manchester Airport has oodles of parking options, so let’s amble ‘round and have a look. 

All information was correct in June 2018, but shop around to see if things have changed.  


Long stay 

There are two long-stay car parks at Manchester Airport, one for terminal two and another for terminals one and three. 

A free, 24-hour shuttle bus runs between the terminals and the long-stay car parks, taking four to five minutes.  

The minimum stay is two days and prices start at £52 if you pay on the day, but you could save truckloads if you pre-book.  

Meet and greet 

Don’t want to waste time searching for a parking space? We don’t blame you! Luckily, Manchester Airport offers a meet-and-greet service.  

Just drive your car through the inspection area where cameras will record the condition of your car, so you know it’ll be returned no worse for wear.  

Pull into the lane you’re allocated and unpack your stuff. Then just pop over to the meet-and-greet reception, swap your car keys for a receipt while one of the team parks your car and off you go. Sorted!  

The minimum stay for meet and greet parking is two days, which costs between £65 and £70, depending on which terminal you’re going to.  

For an extra £20, you can get meet and greet plus, which gets you priority drop off and pick up, as well as fast-track security passes.

Manchester Airport’s multi-storey car parks are just a short stroll to the terminals. And they’re undercover, so it doesn’t matter if the weather decides to remind you why you’re going on holiday in the first place.  

There’s no minimum stay in the multi-storey car parks, and prices start at £4 for up to 30 minutes.  


Slightly further afield, JetParks are a slightly cheaper option to parking in Manchester Airport itself.  

There’s four JetPark car parks, and the minimum stay is three days. A free bus transfer will drop you off right outside the terminal, which takes about five to nine minutes.

How do I know my car will be secure with Manchester airport parking? 

We’d suggest looking for Manchester car parks that have been given the Park Mark award.

You could also take a look at reviews to see what experiences previous customers have had. We’d also like to bring up the benefits of pre-booking vs pay on the day. If you pre-book, you’re guaranteed a space and you could save yourself some money.
