Travelling to London Stansted Airport by Car

Parking on the day

You’ll find turn up and park options available at the Orange and Green zones of our Short Stay car parks, and our Mid Stay car park. However, with limited availability, we cannot guarantee you a space. When possible, we strongly recommend that you pre-book; especially during peak-periods.

Picking someone up

If you’re just staying long enough to pick someone up, you should use our Short Stay car parks (Orange and Green zones) or our Mid Stay car park.

Paying for parking

You can make a payment at any of the automatic ticket machines in and around the terminal buildings. Alternatively, take a token from the barrier on entrance and upon departure, insert your token into the barrier followed by a credit/debit card. Your card will be debited the correct amount and your receipt presented.
