to the airport
There's no way of parking closer to the terminal than booking the airport's own Short Stay 1 car park - it's just over the road from departures and very simple to use. Park, keep your keys and catch your flight, secure in the knowledge that your car will be protected by regular patrols and CCTV while you're away on your well-earned break. When you get back, just walk to your car and drive off. Airport parking as simple as a trip to the shops.
Reasons to book East Midlands Short Stay 1 Car Parking
- You can't park closer than this official airport car park - it's directly opposite the terminal.
- Relax knowing your car is in a car park with regular patrols, 24-hour CCTV and number plate recognition restricting entry.
- No need to wait for a transfer bus as the car park is just a short walk from the terminal.
- Keep your own keys and leave when you're ready after your holiday.
Arrival at East Midlands Short Stay 1 Car Parking
Drive up to the entry barrier and wait for the machine to read your number plate. This can take up to a minute.
If nothing happens, press the button marked "assistance" so you can speak to a member of staff through the intercom.
Don't insert your credit or debit card into the barrier at any point or you will be charged again for your parking, and don't press the ticket button, as this will stop you being able to gain entry.
From there, walk to the terminal. It should take a minute or two.

Don't insert your credit or debit card into the barrier at any point or you will be charged again for your parking. We advise, as always, having a copy of your booking confirmation with you.
East Midlands Short Stay 1 Car Parking Address
East Midlands Airport,
all was well but at East Midlands the barrier didnt open on exit from the car park - all was fine after I had called through to the car park assistant but it seems the system needs a tweek here.Mrs Hackforth-Nelso (East-midlands East Midlands Short Stay 1 car parking)
The price was good and website easy to use BUT the car park had moved to a different location and the instructions had not changed even though we added quick security passes a few days before. It was very stressful driving round and round looking for the correct car park in the dark. Unfortunately the car park wasn't properly sign posted either thanks to the airport. This started our day off with a heated argument and ended up leaving my phone in the car which again was disastrous as we left two teenagers at home! We always book with holiday extras and will and have already booked 2 more trips but please, please update these sort of instructions asap.Mr Tennant (East-midlands East Midlands Short Stay 1 car parking)
