Please check your booking confirmation for details.

Go through the security gate into Donington Park. Airparks is about 200 yards down the road on the left - you'll see it signposted.

Go through the barrier into the car park and drive to the end of the arrival lanes, then make your way to reception. You'll need to bring a copy of your booking confirmation with you.

Your car will be parked for you, so you'll also need to leave your car keys with reception. Then just wait in the covered waiting area for the bus to the airport.


Departure procedure

Please check your booking confirmation for details.

When you return, wait where you were dropped off and the bus service will transfer you back to the car park within 25 minutes.

If you return earlier than planned, please contact the car park to ensure your car is ready for collection.

Additional information

We recommend that you give yourself 40 minutes to drop your car off and transfer to the airport.

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. Remember to check with your airline that you will be able to take them on the plane.

If you park for more days than you booked, the car park will charge you for the extra days at its normal rate. If you stay for fewer days than you booked, unfortunately we can't give you a refund.

Park & Ride customers will be unable to take oversized items onto the transfer buses (skis, snowboards, bicycles, surfboards or anything as large/larger than these items). To avoid this, you can drop large items off at the terminal with a passenger and then drive your car to Airparks.

Please note this car park cannot accept bookings for minibuses, high-sided vehicles, mobile homes, lorries, caravans or trailers, even if multiple spaces are booked. There is a maximum height limit on all vehicles of 2.10m (7 feet).

"Have never ever used a car park at an airport before, but the staff made it all so easy. We decided to upgrade on the day to the chauffer service on our return flight as the flight landed at 2:00am and with three young children we didn't want to wait around. As soon as we collected our baggage and cleared customs we phoned the chauffer and he was waiting for us as soon as we came out of the airport,FAB!!!"

"When we arrived at the airparks services we were not very impressed as the office had no record of our booking, no information whatsoever of the vehicle registration number,dates for parking or reference number, fortunately we arrived about 3 hours before we were required to book in for our flight. On arrival back on the 10/4/12 the same problem presented itself, this time they did not know where the keys were or where the car was, again no information had been passed to staff and there was nothing on their computer. On both occasions the staff were very helpful and efficient. This delay on our return was very inconvenient as there was a 3hour journey in front of us and as we did not land until after 11pm made it very late to reach our destination"

"Efficient off-airport parking option - half the price of on-site parking. Dropped of car just outside airparks office. Transfer bus was waiting for us each time. Car was ready for us to pick up back outside the office of arrival. Would use this service again."
