Luton Short Term Parking

Book now from £ for 7 days parking.

This car park, previously called Luton Express Parking, is situated right opposite the terminal building so there is no need to take a shuttle bus. There is no height limit but large vehicles such as lorries are banned. The car park has various security features, including lighting at night, regular patrols, barriers to get in and out of the car park and high fencing. There is no need to leave your keys.


Leave the M1 at junction 10 and take the A1081 Airport Way. At the Kidney Wood roundabout take the second exit, which is still Airport Way. At the next roundabout take the third exit, staying on Airport Way. When you get to the airport, go straight on at the mini roundabout up to the terminal, where you will see the car park on the right.

Arrival procedure

Please check your booking confirmation for details.

At the entry barrier, press the button for a ticket, and you'll be given a ticket with your registration number and booking reference on. Then just drive in and park.

You should bring a copy of your booking confirmation with you.

Departure procedure

Please check your booking confirmation for details.

Walk back to the car park and collect your car. Then just drive to the barrier and put your ticket in the slot; the barrier will lift. If it doesn't, just press the intercom and speak to a member of staff.


The car park is regularly patrolled, protected by entry and exit barriers and a high fence, and lit at night. It has recently been awarded the police Park Mark award for security.

Disabled facilities

The transfer buses are wheelchair-accessible.

Additional information

Please arrive at the car park at least 30 minutes before your earliest recommended check-in time.

There are no height restrictions, but the car park cannot accept large vehicles, for example lorries.

If you're delayed picking your car up, you'll need to pay for the extra parking at the car park's normal rate (which 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.

Came to the airport to pick up my mother in law and accidentally drove into the drop off carpark as the signage is not very well displayed to which lane you should be in and ended up paying £3.00 for being in the drop off area for less than a minute. Then got ripped off by the ridiculous prices at the short term car park. I understand that the airport is going through a renovation, but they need to be more lenient during this time. They are literally making money for not doing a single thing!

Utter shambles. Wanted to park in the short term multi storey car park , but due to poor signage and road works I was led through the drop off area, I had to pay £3 to exit the drop off before I could enter the multi story which cost another £8. No staff to help , no communication points to ask for help. Utter Utter shambles.

Very expensive and the signage is hopeless. It is not obvious how to get to the terminal once you have parked and equally difficult to find the way out if you are on level 3 or above because you have to drive through the valet parking but that is not made clear. There is no easy access to trolleys so make sure your luggage has wheels or you may start your holiday with a back injury.

Easy to find, easy to park and only 5 minutes to Departures. Some of this is outdoors so if raining you need a brolly or coat.

When we returned from out holiday to find our car had been damaged down both sides we were told the car park is not liable even though there is NO fixed CCTV covering the parking spaces and we found there was no 24/7 security on site, both of which they advertise they have. So I have had to pay my insurance policy excess and likely have increased premiums. They would not even refund what we paid to park - never again. I've used valet parking without any problem even though you hear of scare stories, but never again it's taxis all the way now. Don't assume because you're in official parking you are covered, you might as well use the cheapo companies and save yourself a few £££££
