Follow signs to our short stay Car Park. This car park operates an Automatic Number Plate Recognition System (ANPR) so the barrier should rise for you upon arrival. If not, please press the call button for assistance. DO NOT insert your Credit Card; you may be charged again. Take the ticket issued and park your vehicle noting the zone and row. Our Short Stay Car Park is divided into coloured zones, Red, Orange and Green.
When you arrive back from your trip, follow in-terminal signs to the Short Stay Car Park, remembering which coloured zone you have parked in. Once you have arrived back to your vehicle, drive up to the exit barrier. Either the barrier will raise or if you were issued with a ticket, insert your ticket. If you have pre-booked DO NOT insert a Credit Card at the barrier as you may be charged again. The barrier will open for you to exit. If you experience any difficulties, please press the call button for assistance.
