Stansted CSL Car Storage Ltd

Another off-site car park, this operation is nevertheless very close to the airport at only 1.2 miles away, and closer to the airport than the Medium Stay and Long Stay car parks according to the operator’s website. The courtesy transfers are on request, but prospective clients should note that they only operate between the hours of 4am and midnight. The good news is that if your flight is delayed and you land in the early hours of the morning, the operator will wait for you.

Stansted Official Short Stay

If you want to be able to walk from your car to the terminal building but don’t trust the Meet and Greet type services, then this official on-site Short Term car park will be of interest, a mere two minutes walk from check-in. You will of course pay for the convenience, but by booking ahead not only do you guarantee a space but you will also get the best possible rate. If you are a disabled driver or have a passenger with special needs you will find assistance points close to all the spaces for Blue Badge holders.
