What is turn up and park?

Turn up and park is the facility for passengers to find a parking space on the day they are travelling, without a booking. This service is only available in some of the Short Stay car parks and our Mid Stay car park. However, there is limited availability, to guarantee a space then pre-book in advance.

How does turn up and park work?

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