Reviews of Gold Coast Airport Premium Parking

When it comes to the reviews of the Premium car park and Gold Coast Airport parking in general, the consensus is mixed. Patrons praise the convenience of the booking process, friendly customer service team, and security they feel parking their car at the lots. However, user reviews showcase that often travellers find themselves unable to place a booking due to full capacity, and if they do find a spot, the exorbitant prices they must pay to park. Thus, if you want a pleasant parking experience, Flyparks recommends booking far in advance to secure a spot at Gold Coast Airport, and looking for alternative Gold Coast Airport parking's, particularly those offering shuttle services, if you don't want to pay extraordinary costs. 


Additional Information:

  • No height restrictions 

  • Covered parking option 

  • Closest parking to the terminals 

  • Designated motorbike bays 

  • Accessible parking bays are available 


Do you need to Pre-book Parking at Gold Coast Airport? 

No, travellers do not need to pre-book their parking at Gold Coast Airport, although it is recommended as all the car parks tend to get booked pretty quickly, as reported by user reviews. It's important to note that pre-booking your parking online will allow you to receive cheaper rates than those that would be incurred upon driving up to the car park on your day of travel. Moreover, booking online and in advance will allow you to find discounted deals on parking the airport offers from time to time. 


How much is Airport Parking Coolangatta? 

Parking at Coolangatta is going to vary depending on the car park you park at, and the duration of time in which you park. Parking at the Premium Car Park will be $50.00 per day and $400.00 for a week, while parking at the Short Term Car Park will be $16.00 for 1 - 2 hours, and $30 for 8 - 9 hours, with a $4.00 fee for every hour thereafter. Travellers can expect to spend $143.00 for 1 week of parking at the Budget Uncovered, and $207.00 for a week of parking at the Budget Covered. Travellers looking to park closer to the terminals can alternatively opt to pay $229.00 for a week of parking at the Terminal Car Park, which is 2 minutes away from the terminal. 


What does 3P Parking mean Gold Coast? 

Drivers may see 3P parking signage when travelling the Gold Coast. 3P stands for a three-hour traffic area during the weekdays of Monday - Friday from 9 am - 5 pm where travellers can park only for a 3-hour time period. On the weekends, however, the time limit will not apply unless otherwise stated. The signs will indicate when the traffic area starts and ends, and travellers must be conscious to check whether the street they are parking on has a 3P sign and/or restriction. 3P parking will not apply to on-site airport parking, but when parking on streets around the city, travellers should be aware to check for such signage.  


What does 2P parking mean in Gold Coast? 

Similar to 3P parking in Gold Coast, 2P parking means that drivers can only park their cars on the street where a 2P sign is located for 2 hours. After 2 hours have passed, travellers must move their car, or they will receive a fine. Again, while 2P parking will not apply to on-site airport car parks, travellers should be aware to look out for such signage when attempting to park at an off-site location in or around the Gold Coast.
