For a cost-effective and quick trip, ignore the main stay car park. Instead, head straight to the designated drop-off and pick-up zone, in front of the terminal building. It costs just £1 for a ten-minute stay and is the closest to the terminal where your passenger will arrive*.
The main stay car park costs £1.50 for 30 minutes and is further away, while you can wait for 15 minutes in the long-stay car park for free, but will then have to pay standard rates*.
If you want to avoid paying any charges, be sure to contact your passenger in advance. If theyre waiting at the pick-up zone or car park when you arrive, youll be able to leave quickly, whereas if you have to walk to the terminal to collect them you could be gone for longer than your allotted time.
