Purple Parking Park and Ride at Southend Airport is a handy and reliable service that you can feel confident in parking your car with. From the moment you pull up and are greeted by the friendly staff, you know you'll be able to relax on your holiday and not have to give your vehicle a second thought. Once parked, simply jump onto the free transfer bus to the terminal, and you'll be at departures in approximately five minutes. Nice and simple Southend Airport parking - just the way we like it!

Need to know:

Park in an arrivals lane and drop your keys at reception. Your car will be parked for you while you take the shuttle bus to the airport. The buses run continuously, every 10-15 minutes and take 5 minutes. They run from 4am until the last flight has landed (usually around 12.30am). The return journey is included in the price.

When you get back the bus will pick you up where you were dropped off.


There are 3 accessible parking spaces - please call us before you book to request one.

Unfortunately, the shuttle bus isn't wheelchair accessible. We'd recommend searching for a meet and greet package instead as a shuttle bus isn't required.


The car park has the Park Mark award and is secured by:

  • CCTV
  • Fencing
  • 24-hour staff presence

The small print:

  • Purple Parking can only take cars that fit into a standard-size parking space, which is 2.4m x 4.8m.
  • Purple Parking cannot accept vehicles with 8 or more seats.
  • Please note if youre bringing a long wheel based vehicle youll be required to pay an additional supplement on arrival at the car park. The supplement will equal half of the total cost of the booking.
