Parking on the day

You’ll find turn up and park options available at all our Short Stay car parks and Mid Stay car parks. However, with limited availability, we cannot guarantee you a space. When possible, we strongly recommend that you pre-book, especially during peak-periods, to guarantee a space and the best East Midlands Airport parking prices.

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. Lost Chip Coins will be charged at full day rate for the duration of your stay, plus a £5 charge for the loss of the Chip Coin.
