Additionally, the car park offers 24/7 CCTV cameras, accessible parking bays, and designated family parking spaces, too! The short-stay parking is more expensive than the long stay saver, but more affordable than the premium car park, and the long stay parking at Newcastle Airport.

Booking & Refund Procedure  

To secure your spot in the short stay parking at Newcastle Airport, you can make your reservation on the official Newcastle Airport website. You can book your spot up to a year in advance, or 4 hours before your intended entry try at the car park. The acceptable forms of online payment are Visa, Mastercard, and Amex. 

If you want greater spontaneity in your arrival times, don’t worry! You can enter the car park at any time you choose, just be aware that you will incur drive-up rates, which tend to be higher than pre-booked rates. Should you choose to drive up on the day of your flight departure, you can pay for your parking at the payment stations located inside the terminals, or, on your way out of the car park upon return by tapping your credit card at the exit boom gate. 

If anything changes or you can’t make your trip, you can cancel your reservation free of charge. Just contact the customer care team on the Newcastle Airport parking page. Further, if you loose a ticket or need assistance at the car park, visit the payment stations inside the arrivals hall and press the ‘assistance’ button to be greeted by an attendant. Make sure you have your confirmation number (if applicable), your REGO number, and any additional car registration information readily available.
