Airparks Drop and Go
Airparks Drop and Go has recently been refurbished and is well lit with CCTV, barrier entry, heated bus shelters and check-in area and toilets with baby-changing facilities. There's also free Wi-Fi throughout, including on the buses.
Park on your way to the airport
Airparks car park is close to Junction 10 on the M1. Drop off your car and let Airparks' regular airport shuttle bus take you the rest of the way to the airport. Using restricted bus-lanes, it zips past traffic jams and drops you at the terminal door in around 14 minutes.
This practical and popular car park saves you time and money. With no stress. And no walking
Need to know
On entering Airparks Luton, drive straight into the car photo booth, which rapidly scans your entire car body for reference and protection (takes no more than 5 seconds). Then, park in the arrivals lane and check in using one of the machines, which will give you a ticket. Be sure to keep your ticket safe as you'll need it for your shuttle journeys to and from the airport.
There are heated waiting areas so you can keep out of the elements. The shuttle to the terminal is included in the price, takes around 14 minutes and runs every 20 minutes. It's available 24 hours a day and even has free wifi. Please note, we normally advise our customers to give themselves 40 minutes to park at Airparks and transfer to the airport - longer during the rush hour between 4am and 8am.
If you return early you will need to contact the car park directly to give them as much notice as possible. If you don't, there may be a delay before you get your car back. We can't offer you a refund for any booked parking that you don't use.
When you come back just catch the bus back to Airparks.
Maximum vehicle dimensions are 2m wide x 2.1m high x 5m long. The car park cannot accept any high-sided vehicles, minibuses, mobile homes, lorries, caravans, trailers or vehicles larger than the above maximum dimensions. Vehicles with a taxi license plate can be parked on-site, but cannot use the Return Greet or Meet and Greet services offered by Airparks.
Due to the ongoing redevelopment works at Luton Airport, buses to and from the airport may take longer than normal. We recommend you allow at least an extra hour for your transfer to the Airport particularly at peak times. Peak travel times for Luton airport are all day Friday, Saturday and Sunday and between 4am and 9am, 1pm and 3pm and 5pm and 7pm on other days.

The small print
If you're planning on returning early try and give the car park as much notice as possible so they can have your car ready for you.
The shuttle can't accommodate large sporting equipment, so we'd recommend dropping any off with your passengers at the terminal first, then driving to Airparks.
If you need to park for longer than your booking you have a grace period of until midnight of the day you booked up to. After that it's £15 per 24 hours.
Booking confirmations can be printed or shown on your phone or device.
You will receive a booking voucher containing the car park's address and telephone number, along with any relevant instructions and directions, upon confirming your reservation.
