Airparks is fenced and floodlit and has 24-hour patrols and CCTV. This car park has been awarded the Park Mark, a national security award accredited by the Association of Chief Police Officers. Before being awarded the Park Mark, car parks have to be inspected by the police. They have to have modern security measures, such as alarms and CCTV, and be clean and well-lit.
Airparks has combined great customer service with the most up-to-date technology, to create the easiest and most user-friendly car park at Luton airport. The car park was modernised in 2012, so not only is it ship-shape and fantastically fresh but it's super-simple to use, thanks to its automated check-in service and attentive staff. .
Heated and well-lit bus shelters, flight information screens, weighing machines, toilets with baby changing facilities, refreshment machines and free drinking water make Airparks Luton a cut above the rest.

It is important that you take your booking confirmation with you on the day of your parking.
There is no height restriction at Airparks, but your car must fit in a normal parking space width and length ways.
On ArrivalWe recommend that you follow the directions given to get to the car park, but if you still want to use a sat nav, you should enter the full address and postcode to avoid getting lost.
Pull up at the entrance barrier, which will lift after a few seconds (all cars coming into the site are recorded on CCTV). Park in one of the arrivals bays, then head into the check-in building. You check yourself in using the machines - it's a very quick process, though you'll need to have a copy of your booking confirmation with you. There's a member of staff on hand to help if you need it.
The machine will give you a tag, which you should attach to your keys, and a ticket, which you should keep safe as you'll need it later. Drop your keys in the box with the same number as the lane you've parked in. Your car will be parked for you, so just head to the waiting area and hop on the bus to the airport. You'll need to show your ticket to the driver.
If you have sports equipment or lots of luggage, you may need to wait for a bus with more space during busy times, so make sure you leave yourself plenty of time to get to the airport.
On ReturnThe shuttle buses back to the car park leave from bay M right outside the terminal. You'll need to show the ticket you were given at check-in to the driver.
Make your way to the check-out shelter and follow the instructions on the key dispenser - again, it's a very quick process. The machine will give you your car key back and show you on the screen where your car is. Then just drive to the exit barrier - you'll need to insert your ticket to scan the barcode attached to your keys, and then the barrier will lift. If you lose your ticket, you'll need to go to reception, answer some security questions, then show a photo ID, so make sure you have one with you.
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.
