How it works

  1. Short Stay is a popular choice with limited availability, so book your parking in advance to reserve your space.

  2. On the day, simply drive up to the car park barrier, and our ANPR (Automatic Number Plate Recognition) system will recognise your car's number plate and open the barrier. There's no need to take a token.

  3. Find a space and park up, then walk the short distance to the terminal building.

  4. On your return, walk back to the car park and find your car right where you left it. When you drive up to the barrier it'll recognise your number plate again and you can drive away.

I had a very good experience flying from East Midlands airport and using the car park there. It was contained and easy to park, with a short walk to the terminal.
