Our prices are up to 60% cheaper than the gate price so you will make a huge saving by booking in advance. You also have the peace of mind that a space is reserved for you.

Can I book short notice?

Yes, the most important thing is to print off your booking confirmation email or ensure you have it on a smartphone or device to take this with you to the car park.

Why do some car parks require me to leave my keys?

Some car parks enable you to park your car in the most convenient space when you arrive and will be moved by car park staff while you’re away. Then on your return, they can move it back for your convenience and a quick exit.

What's the difference between on-airport and off-airport Manchester car parks?

On-airport Manchester car parks are within the airport grounds, so transfers to the terminal are usually quick. Off-airport Manchester car parks are outside the airport grounds but won't be more than a few miles away. All offsite car parks have free regular transfers running to and from the terminals.

How long will I have to wait for the shuttle bus?

This depends on the park and ride car park you have booked. Some of the shuttles run on a continuous loop, others run on demand. Waiting times vary but should never be longer than 20 minutes. Please check the car park page for more details.

What's meet and greet parking?

Meet and Greet parking at Manchester is where your car is collected from you outside the terminal. Parked in a secured car park by a driver. Brought back to the terminal on your return from holiday.

It's extremely convenient and great if you’re disabled, travelling with children, or have lots of luggage. You can simply walk to check-in while the rest is done for you.

If I have booked meet and greet parking at Manchester Airport, what do I do on the day?

The meet and greet parking process couldn’t be simpler. Please check your booking confirmation and underneath the arrival procedure there is a telephone number for the Meet and Greet provider that you have booked. Call 20 minutes prior to your arrival at your airport terminal. Proceed to the pick-up point with your booking confirmation/reference. The parking attendant will take the car to a secure car park. Leaving you free to head to check-in.

If I have booked meet and greet parking at Manchester Airport, what do I do once I return from my trip?

As with your arrival, the chauffeurs will need 20 minutes notice to bring your car to the pick-up point. We advise that you call them once you have collected your luggage from the carousel to avoid having to wait for their arrival. Once you have met the driver, they will return your car and you will be able to drive home. 

What if my flight back to Manchester is delayed and I overrun my parking time?

Don't worry, your car will still be safe until you return. When you arrive back at the airport car park, you can pay for the extra hours or days you exceed locally. Extra hours or days will be charged at the car park's gate rate.

What happens if I return early?

Please contact the car park or meet and greet provider to inform them of your early return. Refunds cannot be made for part or unused stays. The car park contact details are on your booking confirmation.

How long before departure should I arrive at the airport car park?

When you should arrive will depend on your airline and flight. We always recommend giving yourself as much time as possible to account for traffic and long queues at check-in.

How do I obtain a VAT or credit/debit card receipt?

Then simply give the valet parking service a call on your return and your car will be brought to you. It doesn’t get more convenient than meet and greet parking.

Temporary Changes to Manchester Airport Terminal 2

Manchester Airport Terminal 2 is currently undergoing an upgrade, and as a result, there are some differences to where you pick up, drop off and park.

The departures forecourt is no longer accessible for passenger drop off; instead, you’ll be directed to a new forecourt located on the ground floor of the multi-storey.

To get to the multi-storey car park close to the airport:

  1. Exit the M56 at Junction 5 and stay in the left-hand lane following signs for Manchester Airport Terminal 2.
  2. At the first roundabout, take the 2nd exit, signposted Terminal 2.
  3. At the 2nd roundabout take the 2nd exit into Palma Avenue, signposted for T2 Multi-Storey car park.
  4. After 0.2 mile the Multi-Storey car park entrance is situated on your left-hand side.

Alternatively, punch M90 4ZY into your sat nav — easy peasy!

If you have a booking, cameras at the barrier will scan your car’s registration plate and grant you access to the car park. If the barrier fails to raise, just press the help button to call for assistance.
