Stashbee's Guide to Cheap Airport Parking

If cheap airport parking is what you’re after, our comprehensive guide will help you avoid expensive airport parking rates.
So you’re on the verge of feeding your love for travel again after a pandemic-induced break. Sounds good to us! Now all you have to do is sort out your ride to the airport… but what if none of your friends or family can drop you off?!

Ridesharing is an option, but some providers like to hike up their tariffs for airport trips past a certain distance. For those who don’t live close by, this means that ordering an Uber can end up being very expensive indeed. The same goes for parking at the airport itself, which can really eat into your travel budget.

Thankfully, modern technology offers a more practical alternative. Leaving for your trip will be a lot less stressful if you book short-term parking with us near the airport, then use public transport to get to the terminal. Read in to learn more in this comprehensive guide to cheap airport parking.

How to Get Cheap Airport Parking

Finding cheap airport parking takes some out-of-the-box thinking. Luckily, we’ve got Hosts all over the UK, which means we can help you get as close as possible to the airport at a very affordable price. Knowing that we’re affectionately called “the Airbnb of parking” should give you an idea of just how easy our booking process is.

Heathrow Airport

Heathrow is one of the busiest and most well known international airports in the UK and judging by its ridiculous amount of foot traffic, you’d never believe that there are five other airports in the London area! Winging it and parking at this airport will set you back £73.90 for every full day you spend there, from your first 24 hours onwards.

Parking near Heathrow Terminal 5

You know an airport is well known when even its individual terminals each have a reputation of their own. Heathrow’s Terminal 5 is world renowned for being the largest free-standing structure in the whole UK. If you’re departing from this terminal, try a parking space in these areas for a good deal:

Gatwick Airport

Gatwick is located to the south of Central London and is known for being a travel hub, so there are a lot of parking bays at the airport. But that’s not to say that they come cheap. A premium short stay in the North Terminal, for example, will set you back a whopping £166.00 for a week.
