If you need to park at the airport over the weekend, or even for a period of two to three weeks, you’ll find that long stay parking is easily the most affordable. As a general rule of thumb, long term car parking rates operate on a sliding scale, meaning the longer you park for, the less you pay per calendar day. If you take just a couple of minutes to compare the prices of long stay on- and off-site car parks for your holiday dates, you may be surprised to find just how affordable Manchester Airport car parking can be. 


Manchester Airport Long Term Parking Rates

Rates for Manchester Airport long stay parking can differ widely. At the top end of the scale are the official airport car parks, including the Multi Storey T1/T3 Car Parks, the Mid Stay T1/T3 Car Parks, the Meet & Greet T1 Car Park, the Meet & Greet T3 Car Park, plus JetParks 1, JetParks 3 and JetParks Ringway. Unfortunately, the official Manchester Airport Long Stay car parks have been closed until further notice, making the Multi Storey T1/T3 Car Parks the next best option for at-terminal parking. Parking charges at these car parks typically start at £45.00 per day, extending to £90.00 for one week, and £140.00 for a fortnight. 

To save up to 60% on these prices, we suggest parking at an off-site car park such as Toad Parking or NCP Manchester Flightpath. One week of parking at Toad Parking will set you back just £40.00 - a massive saving of £50.00 when compared to booking at the Multi Storey T1/T3 Car Parks. The family run Hunters Airport Parking offers amazingly low rates on bookings of one week or longer, charged a low £40.00 for two weeks of parking, or £60.00 for three. By comparison, you’d pay an additional £80.00/£115.00 to use the airport’s own long stay parking facilities. 

In the table below, you can see the cost of long term parking Manchester Airport from 1 to 4 weeks for advanced online bookings. The cheapest option for each week is highlighted in blue. Keep in mind that prices for parking on the day, without pre-booking, can be as much as 60% higher than those booked in advance.

Manchester Airport Long Stay Parking FAQ

If you have a question about long stay parking - we’re here to help! You can check our handy FAQ section below, or get in touch with our customer service team. We’ll be happy to help you reserve a parking space near Manchester Airport, or to amend/cancel your booking if required. 


What is Long Stay parking?

Definitions differ, but generally long stay parking refers to parking of more than 3 days at the airport. When your trip is just for the weekend or a short city break, then opting for a more expensive short stay car park makes sense. The convenience of the short walk from the car park to the terminal is worth the extra cost. However, for longer stays you will easily find much better value when parking with a long stay provider that is slightly further from the terminal. These can either be Park and Ride or Meet and Greet services.


How long can you park at Manchester Airport?

You can book for up to 60 days at Manchester Airport, depending on the car park. If you require parking for more than 60 days, you're welcome to get in touch with out customer service team, and they'll see how they can help. 


Can you just turn up and park at Manchester Airport?

Yes, you can turn up on the day and park at one of the airport car parks. However, you could end up paying up to 60% more than if you had booked in advance and also run the risk of not being able to find a spot during the busy periods.


Why should I book my parking in advance?

A simple rule if you want to save on long term airport parking at Manchester Airport, is to always book as far in advance as possible. This can save you up to 60% compared to booking your parking on the day and is an easy way to stretch your holiday budget.


What’s the difference between on- and off-site car parks?

Like most airports in the UK, Manchester Airport operates its own assortment of car parks that are located directly on the airport terrain. These are known as on-site car parks, and include a variety of long stay options, such as JetParks 1, and JetParks 3. The benefit of booking one of these car parks is that you will often be able to park closer to the terminal and can enjoy the added security of being on-site.

However, there is a much broader choice of off-site car parks that offer far better value for money with a comparable, if not better, parking experience. If you want to save money, choosing an off-site car park is a good place to start. Off-site car parks are typically located close to the airport, but not on airport terrain. They are independently owned and operated - by either larger companies or by private individuals, and provide shuttle transfers in both directions to make up for the distance.
