How to get Cheap Stansted Parking
Book as soon as you have your flight times confirmed.The earlier you book, the better the availability and so the cheaper the price. You can ignore Meet and Greet options - these are always more expensive. For the very cheapest London Stansted parking deals, you usually need to look to independent providers - ie. not those supplied by the Airport. At Stansted, there is a pleasant exception because JetParks, although owned by Stansted Airport, is as cheap as anything else you will find and is still very close to the airport.We highly recommend JetParks to anybody looking to save a few pounds. This next tip may not be helpful for your immediate trip, but perhaps for your next holiday, if you are prepared to sign up to marketing emails, this can also open up a few London Stansted parking discounts. These savings often have a long expiry date and are relatively frequent.
Is There any Free Parking at Stansted Airport?
There is an 'Express Set Down' area for dropping off passengers. This does not cost anything. It is also free to park at the Mid Stay car park for up to one hour - just follow signs for 'Free Set Down'. All other parking options at Stansted will cost you money and should be booked in advance with Holiday Extras for the best price.
Do I Need to Book Parking at Stansted?
In short - yes. We always recommend booking your parking at Stansted in advance. Firstly, there is no guarantee there will be a space available on the day. When you're rushing for your flight, driving around the airport looking for a space should be the last thing on your to-do list! Furthermore, paying on the day can quickly add up the longer you park, and you will end up paying much more than you would if you booked in advance. So if you want the guarantee of a space as well as plenty of extra pounds in your pocket, book your parking at Stansted well in advance.
Jet Parks at Stansted is easy to use, not too far and we didnâ€™t wait too long for a bus. The car park didnâ€™t have our details when we arrived and left which is an annoyance-holidayextras hadnâ€™t sent details through apparently.

I always use Holiday Extras when booking a car park at Stansted. The whole experience always goes smoothly and is hastle free!
Mr Parker, 25 Oct, 2019 (5 out of 5)
Unhappy. I prebooked and paid for parking in the Premium Red car park at Stansted Airport. When I arrived the Red car park was inaccessible and I was directed to the Orange car park, which is cheaper and further from the terminal: no offer or option of a refund
Mr Aikens, 25 Oct, 2019 (5 out of 5)
Seamless car parking booking in the mid-stay at Stansted Airport. Can't fault the service or booking process and saved some money along the way. Highly recommended.
Mr Hutchings, 21 Oct, 2019 (5 out of 5)
Zone L is difficult to find in the dark from bus stop 9 at Stansted. A lighted sign at the entrance opposite the bus stop would make a big difference.
