About Newcastle Airport Short Stay Parking

Located directly across from the airport terminals, the short-stay car park is open-air, and while it is not as close as the Premium Car Park is, it is located only a few minutes away from the check-in desks at Newcastle Airport. 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. While it is not the cheapest parking at Newcastle Airport, it is convenient.

This parking should be your go-to for short weekend trips or stays 8 days or shorter away, especially if you want more convenience in proximity to the airport terminals. For information on how to book or cancel your Newcastle Airport parking, see the procedures below. 


Booking 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, you can enter the car park at any time you choose. Doing so, however, will mean 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. 


Cancellation Procedure 

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. 

If you lose 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.
