There are several car parks at or near Nelson Airport which offer long-term parking. Travellers have the choice of using one of the airport’s own at-terminal car parks, primarily the Value Car Park, Main Car Park, and the Premium Car Park, or a private off-site car park such as Nelson Airport Car Storage or Zoom. The price of open air, long-term Nelson Airport parking typically starts at $10.13 for the first 24 hours, and then extends to $24.19 for three days, and $30.37 for five.

When selecting long-term parking, it is worth keeping in mind that price is not the only element worth considering. Distance from the terminal, the level of weather protection, and the option to purchase additional services such as car grooming, as well as security, reputation, and rating, are all important considerations. Since the rates charged by the various Nelson Airport long-term car parks are relatively similar, it’s worth checking to see which facility has better security features and undercover protection, and reading feedback left by previous customers to make sure everything is above board. 

If you wish to park at one of Nelson Airport's official car parks, you will need to pay drive-up rates as you exit the facility. It's not possible to book at the Value Car Park, Main Car Park, or the Premium Car Park online, but you can reserve a space at an off-site car park online through Flyparks.
