We look at current questions being asked about airport parking in Edinburgh and provide some answers.
There are several options to choose from when looking for car parking at Edinburgh Airport, whether you’ve booked special transport in advance or are calling in a favour from a friend.
If you've offered to take friends or family to the airport, you’ll be pleased to know it’s free to drop them off at the terminal. At Edinburgh Airport Long Stay parking there’s a drop off and pick up zone that’s free for a 10-minute stay - so long as your passengers don't mind catching the shuttle bus to the terminal. Otherwise, you can use the more conveniently located drop-off zone on the ground floor of the multi-storey at £2 for the first 5 minutes, and the pick-up point at £4 for the first 15 minutes. The charges can rise quite steeply if you outstay your welcome, so watch your time carefully.
Check-in times can vary depending on your destination. If you are taking a flight within the UK, Ireland and Channel Islands, passengers should check in a minimum of one hour before the scheduled departure time. If you're travelling internationally, allow two hours, and for EI AI flights, three and a half hours.
When planning your travel times, it's important to include the time you'll need to park your car. For Long Stay, think how long you’ll need to find the car park, park up and catch the bus – whereas if you choose Valet Parking, the service should take just minutes from arrival with a very short walk to the check-in desks.
The cost of parking varies according to convenience and the length of your stay. The best way to save on airport parking fees is to pre-book online. Search online and you’ll find some pretty good deals and vouchers to increase savings even more.
