"The Luton Airport Short Term Parking pre-booking system is an excellent way to save money and take the headache out of parking for business trips: none of this nonsense of having to take the credit card the booking was originally made on, so beloved by other operators!
Simply turn up, stroll the 5 minutes to the airport (mostly covered), fly, return, go to the desk with your parking ticket and booking code and pay!
Bingo! Before you know it, you're crawling down the M1 at 50 mph, or less!
It's even cheaper than the similar service at London City (which, of course, is not plagued by the dreaded M1 roadworks!)."
"I was very pleased with the experience. I got an excellent deal on the Short Term car park which meant I could park in front of the terminal and be at the desk in minutes. On my return I found that my battery was flat, I talked to the NCP people on-site and they got be on the road within 10 minutes. Probably one of the best Airport parking experiences that I have had in the last 10 years of flying."October 29, 2007
"There were no trolleys in the car park when we arrived so had to use a discarded wheelchair to transport our luggage to the terminal. The car park was very busy so had to park on an unsurfaced area of the car park so when we came to retuurn to our car the trolley struggled to go 'off-road'."October 29, 2007
"Fantastic! No more costly than a meet and greet car park, but easier and more convenient. Will certainly use again at Luton"October 28, 2007
"I found the parking fairly effortless and would certainly do the same again. The only thing to remember is where exactly the car was parked as I had to look around for a bit to find it!!
Ticket validation was easy. The staff were very polte and helpful."
"Excellent the best place to park at Luton just a short walk to the Terminal Building.It was great not to have to lug the cases on and off the Coutesy Bus we would definately recommend and use this car park again."October 26, 2007
"It was great to be able to park so close to the terminal. The whole process
was very quick and simple. I would definitely use this service again."
"Everything went like clockwork.Thank you.Very easy."October 23, 2007
"Have used Luton Short Stay twice this year, June and October. Each time we found it to be very convenient and easy to find. Nice not to have to worry about bus transfers, easy walk to terminal. Would certainly use again if flying from Luton. Will be even better when local road works have finished."October 21, 2007
"Convenient and efficient. There was a bit of a queue to have my ticket validated on return but I was dealt with quickly and courteously."October 18, 2007
"Very conveniently located just a 5 min walk to the terminal (and that from a very average parking spot - the closest are just 1 min away). For a short getaway of a few days, the rate is cheaper than cab fare or train tix, with the convenience of the car thrown in. Highly recommended for all but the budget traveller."October 17, 2007
"An excellent service. We managed to find a parking space very close to the terminal building which was really useful with two small children. A five minute walk from the car into the Departure Hall.
The only critisism is the pathways to/from the terminal ti the parking facility. The inclines for the trolleys are not particularly flat and this causes the trolley to become unstable when full of luggage."
"Absolutely Fantastic. My wife is disables, we managed to get the closet disabled spot nearest to the terminal, and had no problems on leaving.
I will be booking again this week."
"First time we have used this kind of facility and it worked very well. Extremely pleased with how easy it all was."October 13, 2007
"Easy to book. E-mail confirming booking and instructions was clear and correct. Authorisation of ticket was dealt with easily despite the computer being out of action. Sign posting in the car park could be clearer - the exit sign from our area of the car park directed to a dead end!"October 10, 2007
"Excellent, we will definitely use this car park again."October 10, 2007
"the car parking service was easy to use and reasoably priced"October 8, 2007
"All OK, apart from long queue to validate ticket where two people on desk but only one doing processing. Also was not given receipt."October 8, 2007
"Always easy, always straightforward, and if you book in advance it is fair price for the convenience of having your car within a 5 minute walk of the terminal building"October 3, 2007
"Loads of spaces, good price, easy to use - ace."October 2, 2007
"Quick access to airport and very convenient"October 2, 2007
"It worked out well, there were no problems getting the parking ticket validated. I would use this service again."October 2, 2007

"I parked in the Luton airport short-term carpark for a total of 9 days, in September 2007. The experience could not be faulted - everything went flawlessly. Even though we arrived somewhat before the expected time, and departed late (due to a delayed flight arrival) we weren't charged any more. Ticket validation was courteous and fast. Would certainly take the same service again."September 30, 2007
"luton airport parking was really easy and stress free. just off junction 10 of M1, sign posted well and quick. once there, easy to park and only a 2 minute walk with suitcase to terminal. you do nothing when you fly out but on return just take ye car park ticket to the desk which is right nxt to the exit and they verify it and you then drive away. really simple. well worth the extra couple of quid for the short stay car park."September 25, 2007
"The system was very easy to operate.
My only minor issue were the directions given for the desk to validate the card. It said by the car hire desks when it is not.
I am afraid I have nothing to compare my experience against but will give a 4."
"Great location and competitive pricing. Easy to use. Road and pavemnet surfaces a bit uneven when pushing a trolley full of luggage."September 24, 2007
"The experience was overall positive. One slight criticism is that the strange fencing made us take a rather longer route walking to the car which was a little unpleasant because it was raining. Even so, I am very please that there is a parling facility so close to the terminal. I would use it again for a short trip."September 24, 2007
"Conveniently located within proximity of the terminal. Car Park requires re-surfacing as challenging manoveuring a trolley, also no bays to leave trolleys in when returning to the car."September 22, 2007
"Very easy to use and quick process when coming back. Right next to terminal so only having hand luggae I was driving out of the car park about twenty minutes after the doors opened on the plane. This is really a 4.5 and the only thing that stopped the 5 was the surface of the car park which I imagine would make a suitcase on wheels very difficult to pull !!!!!!"September 21, 2007
