We always recommend that you should book your parking as soon as you book your flights. The earlier in advance that you book, the better chance you have of securing the lowest rate possible. While you don’t need to receive a space in advance, if you do opt to pay on the day, you may find that you have to pay significantly more. And worst case scenario - there are no free spaces left at all!
It depends! Most car park rates operate on a sliding scale, meaning that the price per day will decrease the longer that you stay. At the same time, many will adjust their prices during holiday periods and in periods of high occupancy. The car park which offers the lowest rates over the weekend may not be the cheapest for a week long stay. It always pays to compare!
