Short Stay Parking Charges

Manchester Airport short stay parking charges differ based on how close you want to be to the terminal, whether or not you mind catching a shuttle bus, and the time of year. Manchester Airport’s own car parks are the closest to Departures, however they’re also the most expensive. Regardless of which terminal you’re flying from, you’ll find a Short Stay or a Multi Storey Car Park closeby, all within walking distance of the check in desks. 

Drive up rates start at £4.50 for up to 30 minutes, £18.00 for up to four hours, and extend to £45.00 for up to 24 hours, at the T1 Multi Storey Car Park, the T2 Multi Storey Car Park, and the T3 Multi Storey Car Park. To see how these options compare, please consult the table below:
