Exit the M56 at Junction 5 and follow the signs for Terminal 1 and 3. At the traffic lights go straight ahead for Terminal 1, you'll pass the Hilton hotel on your left. At the roundabout, go straight on, avoiding the ramp up to Terminal 1 Departures. At the next roundabout take the first left and continue straight on until the next roundabout. At this roundabout, continue straight on, into the Drop and Go arrivals area.
On arrival at the car park, your car reg will be automatically recognised and the barrier will lift. Please drive through an inspection area, which will automatically scan your car and record its condition so we can make sure it'll be returned to you in the same condition as when you left it. Please park your car, unload your luggage and head to reception to hand over your keys. Please note that keyrings and other keys cannot be taken, so you'll need to separate your car key from the others. You'll be given a receipt for your key, which you'll need to keep safe until your return. Then take the 5-minute walk to Terminal 3. If you are travelling from Terminal 1 or 2, it's a 2-minute shuttle bus ride to Terminal 1 and 5-minutes to Terminal 2. In the meantime, an insured driver will park your vehicle within the car park.
On your return, please head back to the Drop and Go reception and show your receipt at reception. You will then be able to collect your keys. Your car will be parked in the arrivals area.
The car park has entry/exit barriers and is regularly patrolled. It has been awarded the Park Mark award.
Blue Badge bays and accessible shuttle buses are available in this car park.
You will be required to leave your keys.
The maximum height restriction is 2.0 metres. Trailers are not allowed in the parking compound. Most standard cars (without trailers/not commercial vehicles) will be accepted at the car park as long as they fit under the 2m entry barrier and fit in a standard-size parking bay (2.4m x 4.8m).
The car park offers a grace period of six hours at their discretion. Any longer than this and you'll be charged the car park's standard rate of £25 per 24 hours (subject to change). If you pick your car up early, they can't give you a refund.
The automated check-in seemed a little complicated at first, but having gone through it once (with an assistant) and having become familiar with procedures, it's very quick and efficient; being only a matter of minutes away from T1 check-in is also a great plus.
