East Midlands Airport Car Park Types

Here we have some brief explanations of the different types of services that are available at East Midlands Airport. Below this, you can find the most recommended providers for each of these types of services.


Park & Stroll

These services are by far the simplest and most convenient to use. You simply park up, unpack your luggage and walk to the terminal. Upon your return, your vehicle will be right where you left it, making it a piece of cake to return home.

Saves on stress.


Park & Ride

This type of service is budget-friendly but efficient. By parking off-site, you save a lot on the cost of parking. Once you have parked your vehicle, you are whisked away to the airport in a matter of minutes.

This type of service is convenient and easy to use. By parking directly at the terminal, you are able to reduce the hassle of trying to find a spot. Once you have parked, a valet will meet you to drive your car to an off-site car park for you. This service is slightly pricier than Park & Ride services, but saves you lots of time.
