Make sure you book the right parking at Liverpool Airport
Liverpool Airport is one of the busiest airports of its size, receiving around 5 million visitors every year. With many people arriving by car, the airport has created a series of parking options to suit every visitor and vehicle. To make sure you find the right parking for you, our parking partners have put together a few helpful hints and tips.
You’ll be able to find both drop-off and pick-up parking services at Liverpool Airport. The express drop-off is the easiest option for those dropping-off or picking-up friends and family as it’s close to the terminal and connected by a covered walkway. However, the express drop-off can become very pricey if you have to stay for longer than a few minutes. Alternatively, visitors who are picking-up or dropping-off passengers can use Drop-off 2, which is a five-seven minute walk from the terminal and completely free for the first 40 minutes.
Apart from the express drop-off areas, the other short-stay parking at Liverpool is found in a multi-storey carpark opposite the terminal. This carpark is regularly patrolled and so offers a secure option for those travelling on short breaks or meeting family and friends. If you’re planning to leave your vehicle for longer than 24 hours it’s recommended that you consider more cost-effective long-stay parking.
The airport offers standard long-stay parking in a car park slightly further away from the terminal than the short-stay car park. It takes around five minutes to walk from the long-stay car park to the terminal doors, making it ideal for visitors who are leaving their car for a long holiday and have a lot of luggage. The long-stay car park has a minimum stay of 24 hours.
As Liverpool airport only has a single terminal, there’s no need to worry about which terminal each carpark is connected to. Every carpark has good travel links to and from the terminal.
While Liverpool is a much smaller airport than Manchester or Heathrow it also has far few parking options, which can mean that it’s just as hard to find a space when looking for one on the day of your visit. The only way to be sure that you’ll get the space you want for the price you want is by pre-booking.
Get there early: Both the M62 and M57 run close to the airport, which can leave many visitors stuck in traffic. Leave yourself plenty of time to get to the airport before your departure and be sure to check local traffic reports before setting out.
Avoid fines: The red-lined ‘Red Route no stopping’ zones have become infamous among visitors to the airport as many have incurred fines by parking on them. Take extra care to obey the rules of the road around the airport and avoid getting caught out.
