East Midlands Airport Parking Guide

Find out more about the various East Midlands Airport parking options below. From long-stay car parks to meet and greet services, we’ve explained what the different parking types mean so you can find the best option for your next trip away.

East Midlands Airport Meet and Greet

If you are looking for a stress-free start to your holiday or business trip, a Meet and Greet operation fits the bill. A chauffeur will meet you outside the terminal and, after a quick inspection of your vehicle, will complete the paper work and drive your car to the secure parking area which holds the Park Mark award. Return arrangements will be confirmed by the driver.

East Midlands Jet Parks 1 and 2

Jet Parks 1 and 2 are on-site long-stay car parks, only 8 mins away from the terminal building by means of a 24 hour shuttle bus, which runs every 15 minutes. Jet Park 1 operates an Automatic Number Plate Recognition system so make sure that the vehicle you use for your trip to the airport is the one you gave details of when booking. The car parks have the police accredited Park Mark award for peace of mind in terms of security for you and your vehicle.

East Midlands Jet Parks Plus

Jet Parks Plus is also a fully secure on-site long-stay car park operated by the same company as Jet Parks 1 and 2. Courtesy buses operate 4 times an hour. If you prefer just to turn up and pay rather than pre-book your space (essential for Jet Parks 1 and 2), this is possible at this car park.

East Midlands Mid Stay 1-3

If you'd prefer not to get a shuttle bus, these mid-term on-site car parks are for you. They are within 7 minute walk of the terminal building and spaces can be pre-booked or you can just turn up and pay.

Postcode to get to Mid Stay 1-3: DE74 2SA

East Midlands Long Stay 1-2

Official on-site long-term secure car parking, this is an eight minute shuttle ride from the terminal building.

East Midlands Short Stay

If you have a lot of luggage, this is the closest car park to the terminal building, a mere 2-4 minute walk away. As with all the on-site car parks it holds the Park Mark award. From £35 per 24 hour period it is an expensive option, although savings can be made by pre-booking. (Prices correct as of July 2017)

Things to do near East Midlands

East Midlands Airport is surrounded by the counties of Nottinghamshire, Derbyshire and Leicestershire. Kings and Queens, poets, authors and pilgrims all left their mark and are remembered in the region's heritage centres, museums, castles and stately homes. It is a county full of contrast. From the cosmopolitan city of Nottingham where dynamic nightlife and great shopping can be found to the quieter market towns surrounded by the rolling fields of the rural countryside.

Perhaps the largest city in the East Midlands is Nottingham, home of Robin Hood's Sherwood Forest. Other attractions include Beehive Farm Woodland Lakes in Derby, and even Woolaton Hall and Deer Park in Nottinghamshire. Perhaps the best attraction is the National Space Centre, the UK's only attraction dedicated to space science and astronomy, which you'll find in Leicester

About East Midlands Airport

(known to be correct as of July 2017)

The actual car park was fine and it's location relative to the airport terminal was accurately described on the website. However, directions to the exit of the airport (from Long Stay 1) were inadequate and we took two wrong turnings. Also there should be more frequent buses at peak times taking returning passengers from the Arrivals Terminal to the Car Parks. Many holiday tour operators have late returning flights (around midnight) and we, along with dozens of other returning holiday-makers, stood in the cold outside waiting for a bus (15 minutes is a long time out in the open at 1.30 in the morning). If more buses can't be arranged, then a much larger enclosed bus shelter should be provided.

It does worry me when I see the scathing reviews on here as most are genuine people with real off-putting stories of their experiences, the good news is mine is a good review. We always arrive early as I am the most impatient person who explodes when things go wrong through incompetence, we pulled into the 'shed' pressed the button and the chap on the other end asked if it was the correct surname, I confirmed this and he told me which lane to park in, I dropped off the keys in the office and picked up my ticket then walked into departures. On return again straight from arrivals into the office where there was one other person in front of me, I picked up my keys and instructed as to where my car was, got in and drove off. Hopefully the bad experiences won't happen to me but I have used this service at various airports for years and don't book any other, I have in the past had a chap meet me and drive my car away but with the horror stories of cars parked on industrial estates I do believe these are more professional even if their compound they take the car to sounds dusty, my car had rain spattered dust marks but not particularly bad and had I not read other reviews of cars being filthy then would have commented about it. I will continue to use them as I don't like the drive to a park some distance away then the bus back to the terminal which is one cheaper option.
