Frequently ASked Questions

Can we transfer between different airports?

Unfortunately, we do not offer any products that allow for a pick-up or drop-off to a different airport. If you require this, we recommend using alternative options such as National Rail.

What happens if I return early or late?

If you are delayed on your return to the car park there may be an additional charge for each additional day. Please contact the car park directly for more information on this as each car park charges differently for this.
If you need to return early from your trip, please contact the car park as soon as you know when you’ll be back – so they can get your vehicle ready.

Can I book on short notice?

You can book APH car parks at short notice, up to the hour before the parking period commences. Other car parks may not offer the same flexibility, that is decided by them.

Why does the price keep changing?

You may notice that parking prices have changed since you last checked. This is because our prices are based on a live booking system, which constantly updates to ensure you get the most up-to-date price.
