This off-site car park is 5 miles from Luton airport and courtesy buses run regularly (every 10 to 20 minutes), taking around 15 minutes. During rush hour it can take considerably longer. The car park is fully secure and has been awarded the Park Mark. The operator will park your car for you, meaning that it is necessary to leave your car key with them. Airparks offers extras such as weighing scales for your luggage (a charge applies), heated bus shelters, a free jump-start service and refreshments to buy at Reception.

Directions information

Directions

Increasing problems with congestion are being reported at Luton airport, and the airport is advising passengers to make sure they arrive with ample time to spare before their flight to avoid the risk of missing it. The official recommendation is to arrive three hours before a long-haul flight, two hours before a European flight and 90 minutes before a domestic flight.

We strongly recommend that you don't use a sat nav to find Airparks Luton, as we've found that with some sat navs, customers have had trouble finding Airparks with just the postcode. There are also two Grove Roads, one in Slip End and the other in Luton town centre. We recommend that you follow the directions below, but if you do still wish to use a sat nav, you should enter Grove Road and the postcode, or Slip End and the postcode.

From the M1 (north and south):
Leave the M1 at junction 10. At the roundabout which goes over the motorway, take the exit signposted Luton and the airport (A1081). At the next roundabout (junction 10A), take the third exit onto the A1081 for Harpenden/St Albans. Take the first right onto Newlands Road, following the sign to Airparks. Take the next left signposted Slip End and Markyate (B4540). At the traffic lights in Slip End, turn right into Grove Road. Take the first left into the service road and Airparks is 100 metres on the right.

From the A1 (M):
Follow the A505 into Luton. At the airport roundabout, follow signs for 'Other routes, Parkway and the A505'. At the next roundabout, go straight on and follow signs for the M1 and St Albans (A1081). At the next roundabout at junction 10A of the M1, take the first exit for Harpenden / St Albans (A1081). Take the first right onto Newlands Road and follow the signs to Airparks. Take the next left signposted Slip End and Markyate (B4540). At the traffic lights in Slip End, turn right into Grove Road. Take the first left into the service road and Airparks is 100 metres on the right.

There are currently roadworks on the M1 between junctions 6a and 12. We recommend that you check the Highways Agency website before you travel, and that you allow extra time for your journey in case there are traffic jams because of the roadworks.

Arrival procedure information

Arrival procedure

Please check your booking confirmation for details.

Checking your car in at Airparks Luton takes just seconds. The site was revamped in June 2011 and fitted with sophisticated new machines which take care of the whole process in the blink of an eye. All you'll need is a copy of your booking confirmation.

Drive into the car park - the barrier will open automatically - and park in one of the numbered arrivals lanes. Make a note of the lane number. Then unload your luggage and make your way into the check-in building in front of you. Head to one of the machines and follow the instructions. In a nutshell, you'll just need to scan the barcode on your booking confirmation, and if you gave us all your details when you booked, the whole process should take about a minute.

Airparks parks your car for you, so you leave your car key with them. The machine will give you a key tag, which you'll need to attach to your car key, and a ticket so you can collect your key when you come back. Once you've put the key tag on your key, you just need to drop it in the blue box to the right of the check-in building, in the slot for your lane number. And that's it - you're ready to hop on the transfer bus and head to the terminal. If there isn't a bus there, there's a big heated shelter with plenty of seats to the right of the check-in building.

Your car key is the only one you need to leave with Airparks, so it's a good idea to take all your other keys off your keyring before you leave home.

Departure information

Departure procedure

Please check your booking confirmation for details.

The transfer bus will bring you back to the car park. The shuttle leave from bay M right outside the terminal. You'll need to show the ticket you were given at check-in to the driver.

When you get back to the car park, make your way to the check-out building. Go up to one of the machines and scan the barcode on your key collection ticket. A map of the car park will come up, showing you where your car is, and you'll get your keys back. This should take a few seconds. Then you can collect your car and set off home. At the barrier, you'll need to scan the key tag attached to your car key to get out.

Again, if you have any problems, just press the assistance button and a member of staff will come and help you.
Of course, if you want to be on the road even more quickly, Airparks offers a Return Greet package where your car is brought to the terminal for you, so you can head straight home. You can choose this option either when you make your booking, or at the car park when you're checking in.

If you're going to come back early, please let Airparks know, if you can, on 01582 393321.

Additional information

Airparks Luton has ladies' and men's toilets, a baby changing room and disabled toilets. You can also buy refreshments from reception.

Airparks cannot accept any vehicle with a taxi licence plate - these can only be driven by the licence holder.

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

If you're worried that your bags might be over your luggage allowance, Airparks Luton now has luggage scales for its customers to use - they cost £1 for 60 seconds.

We normally advise our customers to give themselves 40 minutes to park at Airparks and transfer to the airport - longer during the rush hour between 4am and 8am. However, there are currently roadworks on the M1 between junctions 6a and 12, so we advise you to leave extra time for your journey to Airparks too. More information is available on the Highways Agency website.

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 with a passenger before you park and collect your car. Remember to check with your airline that you will be able to take them on the plane.

If you're delayed coming back, you'll need to pay for the extra parking before you go. At the moment extra days cost £15 per day. If you come back early, unfortunately we can't give you a refund for the time you've not used.

You can't bring minibuses, high-sided vehicles, mobile homes, lorries, caravans, trailers or any vehicle more than 2.1m (seven feet) high to Airparks.

Airparks are ok, but I had a bad experience with the blue bus driver who was very impolite. I ask him if he can wait 30 seconds, I forgot my phone charger in my rental car and he starts shouting at me. The next bus was in 20 minutes, so I left my charger being afraid to lose my flight.

No consideration for disabled drivers. I told them I was a disabled driver and that I have a Blue Badge at the time of booking, and requested that my car be left near the bus stop for collection. I mentioned it again when I dropped the car off. When I returned, my car was in the furthest possible place from the bus stop. I spoke to a member of staff as I struggled towards my car and asked why it was so far away. He said I'd have to raise it with management, and didn't offer to help me. I emailed them to complain and ten days later I have yet to receive a response. If you have mobility issues and don't have someone to fetch your car for you, park somewhere else. These people clearly don't care, and don't deserve your custom.

Experience was generally OK but I am very disappointed about extra charges. We had to extend the length of a 2 week booking by approx 10 hours because flight changes. This occurred some weeks before we were due to fly. The cost of the extra 10 hours was very significant compared with the original cost of parking. This will certainly make me think about using this company again
