Park and Ride transfers

Transfers to and from the airport are included in the The AA price, unless stated otherwise, or the car park is within walking distance of the airport terminal. Please make sure you have the transfer schedule for your car park and that the times of operation suit your requirements.

Meet and Greet parking

If you have booked this service, (where you are met at the terminal by a driver who takes your car away to secured storage for you, and your car is brought to the terminal for you on your return), you may need to reconfirm your booking direct with the parking operator prior to your date of travel, giving your The AA Booking Reference. Please check your booking confirmation for details. Supplements may be charged for service outside normal hours and on all public and bank holidays payable directly to the parking operator.

Minimum stays and charges apply at some car parks. Should you wish to stay for fewer days, you may, but the cost of the minimum duration is payable. This is made clear during the booking process. Daily Prices may vary according to the date and length of stay. Stays of fewer than 8 days may attract a higher daily rate.

In the interests of efficient operation you must be prepared to leave your car keys with car park staff if requested to do so. Where disabled facilities are provided, please ensure these are suitable for you individual needs.


All parking is subject to the terms and conditions of the individual car park and these are available separately on request from the car park operator. Ensure no valuables are left in the vehicle, as The AA will not accept liability. Parking is always at the vehicle owner's risk.
