Information on Premium Self Park at Melbourne Airport 

Melbourne Airport premium self-park lots are available for those looking for direct terminal access and undercover parking. This style of parking is best suited for those who don’t mind paying higher rates for the option of being in the Melbourne Airport Terminal parking facility and minutes away from the check-in desks.

Melbourne Airport premium parking is available at Level 2, with designated bays located close to the T1-3 walkway, and is most suitable for those flying from Terminals 1-3. Premium parking for those flying out of Terminal 4, or travellers flying Rex, Jetstar, or Bonza, will be located on Level 1 of the Melbourne Airport Terminal car park. 

Both premium self-park options at Melbourne Airport will present you with convenient access to Melbourne Airport Terminals. The only difference is, that parking at the premium parking Terminal 4 car park will be primarily suitable for domestic travellers who don’t mind a short 100-metre walk to the terminals, while parking at the Terminal 1-3 car park gives you direct access to the terminals.
