Advice for parking at Stanstead

Car parking at London Stansted Airport can be expensive. Consider your parking requirements, including the length of your stay, type of vehicle, transfer to the terminal and other options before booking in advance at Stanstedairport.com.

Length of your stay

Short or Long-stay?
London Stansted car parking offers four different services: short-stay, mid-stay, long-stay and valet parking.
Short-stay parking can be used to park your car indefinitely, but charges for two whole days. For example, it would cost £62 for short-stay parking, but only £23 for long-stay.
Short-stay parking is mainly for those who wish to park their car for less than four hours, after which motorists can save more money using long-stay parking at a daily charge of £11.50 (all prices as of 01.05.2011, Stanstedairport.com). Mid-stay
As mid-stay parking is available for a daily charge, it costs more to use this service than long-term parking. Valet
Valet parking is also available. A 23-hour stay in valet parking costs £39.75
(all prices as of 01.05.2011, Stanstedairport.com).

Type of vehicle

Type of Vehicle
The type of vehicle you are parking also influences your choice of Stansted car park.
For example, zone Q of the long-stay car park has 130 spaces for blue badge holders, 30 for motorcycles and a further 30 for those parking large vehicles, such as camper-vans.

Terminal transfer

Terminal Transfer
Terminal transfer times vary for Stansted's short, medium and long-stay car parks. Short-stay parking is advantageous as the motorist is walking distance of the main terminal building.
Transfers between the mid and long-stay car parks by complimentary shuttle bus takes approximately five and 15 minutes respectively. Things to Consider
If you are travelling with an elderly or disabled traveller or if you are transporting a large amount of luggage, you may wish to consider parking near the main terminal to make your transfer easier.

Travel alternatives

Alternative Transport
Consider whether using alternative means of transport can save you time or money. Public transportation, such as buses or trains are not only better for the environment, but may also save you money on parking charges.
For example, if you travelled for four weeks and left your car in the long-stay car park, you would incur a charge of £184.
It is also important to consider the size and weight of luggage that you will be travelling with and whether you will be able to comfortably carry this on public transport
(all prices as of 01.05.2011, Stanstedairport.com).
