Hobart Airport Long Term Parking Costs

If you’re searching for low-priced, long term parking Hobart Airport, it’s worth keeping in mind that the cost of Hobart Airport long term parking, which is right next to the terminal, is always going to be more expensive than parking a couple of minutes away at an off-airport car park, like Hobart Airport Undercover Parking. But, if you're set on parking at the long term car park located on airport grounds, we've got you covered when it comes to the hourly and daily rates charged to park your car park there. 

Parking for your first 15 minutes at the long term car park is free. After that, rates increase to $13.00 for 30 - 60 minutes,  $55.00 for 3 hours up until 2 days, $90.00 for 3 - 4 hours, $102.00 for 4 - 5 days, and an additional $14.00 for each day thereafter. For a full overview of hourly and daily rates, view the table below.

PARKING TIP: To secure the best long term parking rates, always book your car park online when you can. Drive-up rates for any and all car parks will generally be more expensive than if you book your spot online. In doing so, you are also guaranteed a bay at the car park you choose, as many do fill up around holidays or during peak travel season, and leave many travellers having to park elsewhere on a last minute notice. For ultimate savings without compromising security or convenience, consider an off-site airport car park, as they charge lower rates but offer more personalized service with the same security features, if not more, than the airport car parks. The choice is yours.

Where to park in Hobart?

Parking in Hobart (not specifically at the airport) can be found all around the city. Hobart city has built multi-storey car parks at Arygle Street (Arygle Street Car Park), Victoria Street (Centre Point Car Park), Melville Street (Hobart Central Car Park), Davey Street (Dunn Place Car Park), plus many more, available on Hobart City's website. Its important to keep in mind that these car parks have limited opening hours, and some car parks have parking limits capped at 3 hours. Customers must pay between the hours of 8:30 am - 6:30 pm to park at the majority of these car parks via meters or vouchers. On public holidays & Sundays, the multi-story car parks are free. 

 

Is there a shuttle bus from Hobart Airport to the city?

Tickets can be purchased (with card only) at the Skybus Kiosk within the Hobart Airport terminal, then head to the pick up / drop off location in front of the forecourt, outside the terminals. There are designated Skybus signs outside the terminals to guide you. 

The Skybus departs every 30 minutes between 8:00 am - 22:10 every day, except on Saturdays where the last bus departs at 21:10.

How long can I leave my car at the Airport?

You can leave your car at Hobart Airport for hours, days, weeks, or even months. The fees charged will be assessed accordingly. Off-site car parks tend to charge per day only and have no time limit. They also regularly discount their rates for long term bookings, on a sliding scale. Generally, if you are parking for more than 3 days, it's more budget-conscious to book with the long term car park or Airport Undercover Parking, as they charge on a 24-hour period, and end being cheaper for longer stays than short term car parks, which charge hourly.

 

Should I use car parks with a shuttle or within walking distance?

Choosing the right car park for your trip away depends on several factors. To help evaluate whether car parks with shuttle service or car parks within walking distance are right for you, you should consider the distance, facility, and price:

  • Distance: most on-site airport parking options are within walking distance of the terminal. Facilities with shuttle services, on the other hand, are located off the premises of the airport and provide shuttle services that will drive you right up to the departure door.
  • Comfort level: parking at a large and busy airport can be intimidating. It’s easy to lose sight of your car and forget where you’ve parked, or even have it sideswiped by someone else who’s in a hurry to get to check in. Smaller parking facilities with shuttles tend to offer an easier and more streamlined, customer-friendly experience, free from the hustle and bustle of the airport.
  • Price: as a general rule of thumb, parking within walking distance tends to be much more expensive. By being open to parking further away, you’ll be able to snag a better deal. For the cheapest parking at Hobart Airport, check out our Flyparks Top 3.

 

Are Airport car parks safe?

Safety and security are paramount to most car parks, regardless of whether you park on-site or off-site. Facility managers and car park staff realise that your vehicle is both valuable and important to you, and they take their responsibility to protect it very seriously. This includes installing and maintaining security features such as CCTV cameras, fencing, entry gates, floodlighting, and manned patrols. 

Off-site airport parking services are extremely security-conscious. Airport Undercover Parking, for instance, parks your car for you in their secure lot and closes it off to the public. This means that your car will remain free from scratches or dings from other drivers or passers-by. They also provide free, on-demand shuttle services, so that you don’t have to walk to the terminal and back. Their uniformed and trained employees are also present at all times to keep an eye on the vehicles, and to assist customers with any concerns. Your vehicle will never leave the lot once parked up.
