Hello and welcome to Parking at Luton Airport.

There are so many parking options available for you at one of the UK's fastest-growing airports that thought you might need a little help finding the one that is right for you. 

On these pages, we'll have information and guidance about the various options that you might want to consider, depending on if you want on or off-airport parking, stay-and-park options or are looking at other ways to get to and from Luton.

Let's take a brief look at the terminology.

On-Airport -  these are car parks that are on the airport site itself. Ideal if you are tight for time and only parking for a relatively short period of time or if you haven't pre-booked. More details here. 

Off-Airport - these are car parks that are off the main airport site and they transfer you to and from the airport terminal in a bus.  These are often cheaper than on-airport parking but can add time to your journey. More details and reservations here.

Stay-and-park - these are special hotel rates where you stay the night before your holiday in a local hotel and they keep your car until you return.  Ideal for early departures, but often limited in space.

Meet and Greet -  with this option, you meet a parking representative at a designated spot at the airport,  they will then take your car and park it for you in a secure parking area - mostly off the airport site. These are often more expensive but offer the most convenience., pub-7977149247106601, DIRECT, f08c47fec0942fa0
