How Parking at Terminal 5 Works

  1. Book in advance – We recommend booking your parking in advance to get the best price for stays for longer than 24-hours. If you are staying for less than 24-hours, picking someone up or dropping-off, please drive-up and pay at one of our on-foot machines.

  2. Arriving at Terminal 5 Short Stay car park - Upon arrival, drive-up to the barrier, where your number plate will be read and if you have booked in advance, a ticket showing your booking reference will be issued. If you are staying for a shorter period, simply press the button and a ticket will be issued.

  3. Parking – Parking is available on all levels. Once safely parked, make a note of the level and row of your space before leaving the vehicle.

  4. Getting to Terminal 3 – To get to Terminal 5, simply follow the signs for departures or arrivals, where you will find a covered walkway linking the car park with the main terminal building. 

  5. When you return – On your return, follow the covered walkway back to the car park, and drive your car to the exit gates.
