About the Domestic P1 & P2 Car Parks

The P1 Car Park and the P2 Car Park are multi-storey parking facilities located at Sydney Airport. Owned and managed by the Sydney Airport Corporation, the P1 parking and P2 parking facilities are located within a 5 minute walking distance of Domestic Terminals 2 and 3, with pedestrian entrances and exits connected directly to the airport. There are accessible spaces available for disabled travellers near the entrance, as well as Guaranteed Space Zone parking, which must be reserved in advance on Sydney Airport’s official website. 

Open 24/7, P1 and P2 provide secure, weather-protected, short and long term parking, with barrier entry and monitored CCTV. P1/P2 operate as mid-range car parks, with drive-in rates starting from $10.60 for up to 30 minutes. 

The P1 Car Park is split across 4 levels, and P2 has 8 levels. Except for the roof, the two car parks are undercover. P1 and P2 can accommodate a variety of different vehicle types, from sedans and Ute's, luxury sports cars, and station wagons, to 4WDs. There are height restrictions in place, with a maximum vehicle size of 2.1 metres in both of the car parks. The main benefits of parking at P1 or P2 include:

  • Ease of access - the car parks are open 24/7, 365 days a year
  • Advanced security features, within a purpose-built, multi-storey facility
  • Ideal location - designed for use by domestic travellers
  • Accessible parking spaces nearest to Arrivals/Departures at Terminals 2 & 3
  • Guaranteed Space Zone is available to customers who have pre-booked online


Sydney Airport P1/P2 Car Park Rates

P1 and P2 are mid-range car parks, meaning that their pricing structure sits somewhere in between budget shuttle parking rates and those of premium valet services. When using P1/P2, travellers pay for the convenience of being able to park their vehicle within walking distance of Terminals 2 and 3, as well as the safety and security of undercover parking. P1/P2 are fractionally more expensive than the Sydney Airport P3 Car Park, especially for long stays of one or two weeks, and quite a lot pricier than Sydney Airport Express or Air Travel Parking. You can read about how the prices of these airport car parks compare in our Sydney Airport parking rates article. 

Drive-up rates at P1/P2 start at $10.60 for 15-30 minutes, $21.20 for 30-60 minutes, $31.90 for 1-2 hours, $39.90 for 2-3 hours, and $69.90 for stays of between 3-24 hours. Each additional 24-hour period (or part thereof) is charged at $68.40. Do keep in mind that paying at this car park will incur a Credit, Debit, and PayPal processing fee that will vary depending on the payment method used. 

In the table above, we have also listed the price of off-site Sydney Airport parking at Air Travel Parking Sydney and Sydney Airport Express, two highly reputable alternatives to P1 and P2 parking at Sydney Airport. For those who don't mind a few-minute shuttle ride to the terminals, we recommend off-site Sydney Airport parking rates to get a better deal.

It’s not possible to book a parking space at P1/P2 on Flyparks at present, but payments can be made through Sydney Airport’s official website.

Reviews of P1 & P2 Parking Sydney Airport 

The P1-P2 Car Park at Sydney Airport enjoys less than favourable reviews, with an average of 3.3/5 out of 96 reviews left by its users on Google. Many cited safety concerns and damage to their car by the poorly designed entry points, lack of car park signage, defect scanning devices, overcrowded lots, and overpriced rates. 

Positive Reviews:

People who have parked in the P1-P2 car park are primarily satisfied with the proximity of the car park to the terminals and the ease of online booking.

Negative reviews:

On the negative side, past travellers denounce the high price of parking compared to the low quality of service experienced whilst on-site. User reviews state that there is a poor lack of signage, making it a hassle to enter and exit the car park quickly. Additionally, past travellers have reported inoperable or defect entry/exit barriers, and no active customer service to help, therefore making it a hassle and a very inefficient parking experience. It is also important to note that travellers have stated that even accidentally entering the car park and immediately going to exit will be of charge.
