Tip 1: Book Your Parking Before Leaving Home

How do you secure the best parking at Launceston Airport?  Easy! Instead of paying drive-up rates, reserve your space online and in advance. As soon as you’ve purchased your airline tickets, we advise that you book your parking. Why? Because most car parks charge calculate their rates based on factors such as capacity, demand, and season. The earlier in advance you book, the better the rate. Leave it too long, and you may find that you’re forced to pay a premium for a parking space that is far from the terminal entrance. 

Find out how much you would save by booking in advance by entering your dates into the search bar above. Our handy online search tool will display all the available car parks near Launceston Airport so that you can compare their rates. You’ll be shown their best price, for both uncovered and covered parking (where available), as well as plenty of information about how the service works, customer reviews, photographs, and more.

Tip 3: Read Customer Reviews 

We understand that it can be difficult to know which car park to choose when using a comparison service. Many off-site car parks will advertise low rates, but how do you know if your vehicle will be safely stored? In the absence of well-known names, such as Andrew's Airport Parking Launceston, it’s a good idea to read online reviews to get a sense of how secure and trustworthy the car park really is.

Drive Park Fly, for example, has collected numerous positive reviews over the years and currently has a customer rating of 9.6 out of 10. The car park is highly rated in terms of time keeping for Launceston Airport shuttle pick-ups, for customer service, and for its location.

Tip 4: Avoid Parking Fines Launceston Airport

While there are plenty of unofficial tips circulating around in forums about ‘free parking near Launceston Airport’, it’s never advisable to leave your car unattended for long periods of time in 'no parking' zones, or on the outskirts of industrial areas. People may report that parking at a nearby train station or street worked for them, but why risk it?

It’s vital to check the level of security at any car park you leave your car at and consider if it provides satisfactory protection. Not only do you risk receiving a parking ticket, but your car could be broken into or damaged while you’re away. Avoid receiving a Launceston Airport parking fine by using a designated parking space, either in one of the airport’s own car parks or at an off-site parking facility.
