Parking on the day

You’ll find turn up and park options available at the Orange and Blue zones of our Short Stay car parks. However, with limited availability, we cannot guarantee you a space. When possible, we strongly recommend that you pre-book Stansted Airport parking; 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 Blue zones).

Turn up and park parking prices

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.
