Birmingham Airparks Services

This is Birmingham airport’s closest off-site car park, being just 4 miles from the airport. The transfer takes just under 15 minutes and buses run every 25 minutes. Customers should allow longer in peak times: the recommendation is to allow 50 minutes. Cars are parked by attendants so keys should be left. Returning customers should note that the bus picks up, not from the bus shelter, but at the Waiting Zone. Extras offered by the car park include a free jump-start service and a vending machine for hot drinks.


Leave the M42 at junction 6 and take the A45 Coventry Road towards the city centre and the airport - it's the first exit if you're travelling northbound, and the third exit if you're travelling southbound. Go through two sets of traffic lights, passing the Holiday Inn on your right. At the third set of traffic lights, get into the right hand lane. You'll see a signpost for off-site airport parking. Turn right onto Sheaf Lane towards Garretts Green and Marston Green. Follow this road until you reach a roundabout; take the third exit, following the sign for off-site airport parking site A. After half a mile, turn left into Mackadown Lane. Airparks is on the left, just before the railway bridge.

Arrival procedure

Please check your booking confirmation for details.

Park in one of the arrivals bays and head to reception to check in. You should bring a copy of your booking confirmation with you.

Your car will be parked for you while you catch the transfer bus to the airport, so you'll need to leave your car keys with reception. You'll be given a ticket, which you should keep safe as you'll need it when you return. Just make your way to the waiting area in the car park.

We recommend that you allow 50 minutes from checking into the car park to reaching the airport terminal.

Departure procedure

Please check your booking confirmation for details.

The Airparks bus will take you back to the car park to collect your car. You'll need to catch the bus from stop A outside the terminal. You'll need to show the ticket you were given when you checked in to the driver. Unfortunately, because so many different buses use that stop, the Airparks bus can't pick up from the shelter itself - it picks up from the area marked 'waiting zone' instead.

When you get back to the car park, you'll need to go into reception with your ticket. After you've collected your keys from reception, drive to the exit barrier and scan the barcode attached to your keys to get out. If you lose your ticket, you'll need to answer some security questions and show a photo ID, so make sure you have one.

If you return early, please contact the car park directly to give them as much notice as possible; otherwise there may be a delay before you get your car back. You won't be given a refund for any booked parking that you don't use.


The car park is protected by CCTV, a high fence, entry and exit barriers, floodlighting and regular patrols. It has been awarded the Park Mark security award from the police.


Parking is always at the vehicle owner's own risk.


Disabled facilities

All Airparks buses have disabled access.

Additional information

Airparks can't accept taxis, as they can only be driven by the licence holder.

Bikes, surfboards, canoes and other large objects that won't fit into the luggage racks can't be carried on Airparks buses. If you are bringing large items with you, we suggest you drop them off at the airport before you park your car. You can also book our Return Greet package, where your car is brought to the terminal for you when you come back from holiday.

If you come back to a flat battery, Airparks will be happy to jump start your car for you.

Airparks Birmingham has ladies', men's and disabled toilets, and you can buy hot drinks from the vending machine in reception.

We recommend that you give yourself 45 minutes to drop your car off and transfer to the airport - longer in rush hour, or if there is a major exhibition at the NEC - you can check on

If you're delayed picking your car up, you'll need to pay for the extra parking at the car park's normal rate (which is more expensive than the price you pay when you book with us). If you pick your car up early, unfortunately we can't give you a refund. If you're going to come back early, please let Airparks know, if you can.

The car park cannot accept any high-sided vehicles, minibuses, mobile homes, lorries, caravans, trailers or vehicles larger than the following maximum dimensions: 2m width x 2.1m height x 5m length.

The vending machine sells only hot drinks. There are no snacks.

AVOID THIS PLACE Arrived back from our holiday at 5am after a lengthy travel to find our front windscreen has been cracked whilst in Airparks possession. Airparks taking no responsibility and we have been dealt with in a very unprofessional matter. Why should we claim on our insurance policy for the windscreen crack when we left our car in the capable hands of airparks to be securely parked. We have used this car park 7 times in the past but definitely WILL NOT AGAIN

First time using Airparks as was offered discount for NHS staff. I found the staff very friendly, but I found the whole process long and a lot of waiting around. I was under the Impression that buses run every 15 minutes, therefore thinking that I would check in and get on the bus and go straight to the airport. Reality was, I sat on the bus for 25 minutes waiting until everyone had checked in and parked, then another 15 mins to the airport. I understand they probably want the bus to be as full as possible but maybe it needs to mentioned? Upon return, my flight was very late, and it was wet and cold. I waited 45 minutes for the bus, again I feel they wait for a lot of flights to come then send the bus. If your flight is in first, like mine then be prepared to wait for it. My flight arrived at 11.45 and I finally arrived at my car at 1.30am. Not the every 15 minute service as advertised. The price was good, the staff were friendly enough, and the process of checking in and out is simple enough. Me personally there was far too much waiting around which I don’t like, especially on a late flight home. Unfortunately i won’t be using the service again. If you don’t mind the hanging around, then it’s a great service.

The arrival to Airparks was simple and the staff was helpful getting us checked in, however I was so disappointed with the lack of support the staff was on the return. No empathy towards the elderly who clearly didn’t understand how to retrieve their car keys, to the point where I had to help one elderly gentleman myself. Just because the staff do this day in day out, doesn’t mean they should get so frustrated with people who haven’t used the machine before. Customer service at its worst and there was no need for rudeness. A suggestion would also be to make the colour system more transparent when collecting your keys or make a greater emphasis on this when checking in.

Great Service. Car was left there for almost 3 weeks and brakes were locked. We asked for help and a guy called 'Rom' came. He was really helpful and managed to resolve the issue. A really nice guy, thank you for the great customer service!
