Reviews of Car Park M 

Reviews of Car Park M left by past travellers note the car park is difficult to find as there is poor signage, and expensive. One traveller exclaimed that he was charged simply for turning in the car park by accident and had to pay upon exiting immediately. Despite this, some travellers did rate the car park with 5 stars on Google Reviews, despite leaving no written reviews of their experience.

If in doubt, consider parking with an off-site parking option whose directions are clear and offer complimentary shuttle services to take you to and from the domestic or international terminals in under 10 minutes. Both Parking Mode Auckland & AeroParks are great choices for parking at Auckland Airport.
