This on-airport car park is only a five minute walk from the terminal building but if you have a lot of luggage you might want to take the shuttle bus which runs every 10 to 15 minutes and takes just 5 minutes. Drivers are free to park wherever they want and there is no need to hand in the keys. There are no disabled facilities in this car park so disabled drivers are advised to use Long Term Car Park 2 instead.



Please check your confirmation email for details.

Leave the M4 at junction 29 and join the A48(M) towards the airport. Take the third exit at the first roundabout, the second exit at the second roundabout and then the second exit at the third roundabout onto the A4050. Take the second exit at the next six roundabouts, then the second exit at the seventh roundabout onto the A4226, and the second exit at the eighth roundabout. At the ninth roundabout, take the first exit onto Port Road, into the airport complex. At the next roundabout take the third exit, which is signposted terminal and business park. Long Stay Car Park 1 is the third turning on the left.


Arrival procedure

Take a ticket at the entry barrier, then just drive in and park your car. You can either walk to the terminal or take the shuttle bus.


Departure procedure

Validate your ticket at the NCP desk in arrivals before you catch the shuttle bus back to the car park from outside the terminal. Then just drive to the exit barrier and put your ticket in the slot to get out.



The car park is protected by CCTV, entry and exit barriers and a fence, and regularly patrolled.




Disabled facilities

Long Stay Car Park 1 has no disabled facilities. There are disabled parking spaces in Long Stay Car Park 2, which also has wheelchair-accessible transfer buses.


Additional information

If you're delayed coming back, you'll need to pay for the extra parking before you go at the car park's normal rate. This is more expensive than the price you pay when you book with us. If you come back early, unfortunately we can't give you a refund for the time you've not used.

Long Stay Car Park 1 does not accept trailers.

You choose your space, park your car and keep your keys.


Long Stay 1 Non-Flexible

Because this is a special low-price package, once you've made your booking, you can't change it, and you won't be able to get a refund if you need to cancel.

"I was pleasantly surprised by the overall experience. Somewhat nervous before hand about relying on a "number plate recognition system" to gain access to car park-but it worked perfectly."

"Really quick and easy. No bother at all, would definitely use again."

"Good to be able to park so close to the airport and at a reasonable charge. However, it was hammering down with rain when we arrived and it would have been nice to have a bus take us the five minutes or so to the terminal, rather than us getting soaked."

"Directions to car park were okay but the final stages were inaccurate. There are also two different long stay car parks and this was not clearly distinguished.
The instructions on arrival at the car park barrier need to be clearer too. There is an information board with excessive text, too much to read when driving and a sticker on the ticket machine before the barrier which confused me sufficiently to entice me to put my credit card it. It later transpired that I shouldn't have done this as we would have been charged twice, something I managed to rectify on our return. Your instructions simply state, take a ticket, it would be more helpful if they also told you not to insert you credit card.
Location of the car park is ideal as it was a 5 minute walk to the terminal.
I would use the car park again and would book through Airport Parking Shop as I am now familiar with the route to the car park and ticket instructions."

"The parking was situated close to the terminal and was within easy walking distance with a suitcase. Validating the ticket on the return journey was also easy and quick. The one thing I would say is that the sign posts for long term/short term aren't so good. I mistakenly took a wrong tun and ended up having to go into the short term car park (no way to reverse before going through barrier) and had to pay £1 for spending less than 30 secs as this would appear to be the only way out. Also the barriers were not manned so had no choice but to pay for the ticket in order to navigate around to the long term."
