Sydney Airport P3 Car Park Fees

The P3 Car Park is a midrange parking option, and fees are set accordingly. Sydney Airport P3 parking is fractionally cheaper than next-door P1 and P2, and approximately eight minutes by foot from the terminal buildings. Since the car park is a little further from the airport, travellers can look to save around $3.00 to $25.00 compared to Sydney Airport P2 parking rates, dependent on the length of their stay. 

Sydney Airport P3 parking rates start at $10.60 for 15-30 minutes, $21.20 for 30-60 minutes, $27.50 for 1-2 hours, $31.90 for 2-3 hours, and $56.40 for stays of between 3-24 hours. Each additional 24-hour period (or part thereof) comes in at $56.40 at T3 parking Sydney Airport. The first 0 to 15 minutes of your stay at P3 parking Sydney Domestic Airport are free of charge, however it is difficult to drop-off or pick-up passengers in this short period of time.

If you’re looking to save on the cost of airport parking, you may wish to consider using a private car park that is a little further from Kingsford Smith than P3. Independent car parks have the advantage of lower rents, so they can offer customers budget prices. These car parks are a great option for stays of three days or more, as they are easily accessible, less than ten minutes from Departures, and have tight, 24/7 security. 

If you don’t mind taking a shuttle bus to your terminal, it’s well worth shopping around. Booking your parking online often works out about 40% cheaper than paying airport drive-in prices, and it also means you’re secured a spot, even during busy periods. To get an idea of how much you could save by using a shuttle parking service, simply enter your travel dates into the search bar above. You'll be shown a list of all the available off-site car parks for your planned trip, which you can then filter by tariff, journey time, and customer review score.

How to Book P3 Sydney Airport Parking

It’s not possible to book a parking space in P3 on Flyparks at present, but payments can be made through Sydney Airport’s official website. It's advisable to book online over paying drive-up fees, as you can shave a few dollars of the price of parking by making an advance booking. If you opt to book your airport parking online, you can arrive at the P3 Car Park two hours prior to your booked entry time, and depart up to 3 hours after your booked exit time. It’s also worth noting that the first 15 minutes of your stay are free, which makes it possible to pick-up or drop-off passengers at T2 and T3 (very quickly), without paying for parking at the Express or Priority Pickup Zone.
