Book the perfect parking space at Leeds Bradford Airport
Leeds Bradford Airport is one of the smaller international airports in Britain with around 4 million passengers every year. Like many other airports in Britain, Leeds Bradford has a variety of parking options for visitors arriving by car. As it can be difficult to work out which service is right for you, our parking partners have put together this handy guide full of useful hints and tips to help you choose the perfect parking space for you and your vehicle.
Leeds Bradford offers two pick-up and drop-off options; the free One Hour Parking Zone and the Terminal Front Express Carpark. Those in a rush who are looking to minimise the distance between their car and the terminal can pay to be in the Terminal Front Express Carpark. Alternatively, the Whitehouse Lane One Hour Parking Zone is a four minute walk from the terminal doors and offers visitors a free hour of parking. If you’re planning to leave your vehicle longer than an hour it may be a good idea to consider short-stay parking.
There are two fantastic parking packages for visitors in search of short-stay parking; standard short-stay and Premium Short-Stay. Premium Short-Stay includes access to the Fast Track security area for up to four people and both services are based out of the same car park near the terminal entrance. It’s recommended that you consider a more cost-effective long-stay parking service if you’re planning on leaving your car for longer than 24 hours.
Located slightly further from the terminal than short-stay parking, the Long-stay parking at Leeds Bradford is a great option for travellers who want to store their vehicle while they’re away. You can be sure the distance between the terminal and the parking won’t be an issue as the regular shuttle buses ferry passengers to and from the carpark.
There’s no need to worry about which car parking area services which terminal as Leeds Bradford Airport has a single terminal. All car parks have good travel links to and from the terminal.
As the parking facilities at Leeds Bradford are much smaller than that of other major travel hubs in Britain, it can be just as hard to find a parking space on the day of travel as it would be at other airports. The only way to ensure you get the space you want for the best price is to pre-book.
Birmingham Airport gives Blue Badge Holders a full hour of parking for free, offering plenty of time to get in or out of your vehicle and seek any assistance you require. To get your free hour of parking simply park as normal on the day and then take your Blue Budge to the NCP Customer Service Office where you’ll be refunded an hour of parking.
Make use of the free One Hour Parking Zone: It’s well worth making use of the free parking as few airports offer such a service within a five-minute walk of the terminal.
Check for traffic: There can be some traffic when getting to and from the airport caused by the A658, A660 and the city of Leeds. Be sure to give yourself plenty of time to travel and to check local traffic reports.
