Sydney Airport Parking Rates In Brief

There are a lot of options for overnight parking Sydney, but the car parks with the best rates are usually the ones that have a shuttle service. Despite this, there are many options available that fit everyone's needs. This means that service levels and rates differ, as well proximity to the terminals. Your choice of car park will largely be determined by which terminal you are travelling to, how long you need to park for, whether you require open air or covered parking, and how much you wish to pay. For the purpose of this guide, we have divided these car parks based on whether they suit short- or long-term stays, for domestic or international travellers. 

The main airport car parks are Car Park P1/P2P3 Car ParkCar Park P7 and Blu Emu Car Park. P1, P2, and P3 are primarily for domestic travellers, due to their proximity to Terminals 2 and 3, whereas P7 caters towards international travellers and is located near Terminal 1. There are two Guaranteed Space Zones, one which lies in between T2 and T3, and the other near T1, while Blu Emu, the budget long term car park, is located some distance behind T2. The rates charged by these car parks are similar for domestic and international travellers. Booking online in advance for car parking Sydney Airport is more affordable than paying drive-in rates, and we will show both sets of fees whenever possible.

The services offered by independent airport car parks are quite simple; you reserve your parking space online, then drive to the car park on your day of travel. Once at the car park, you show the staff a copy of your booking confirmation, and then check-in your vehicle. Your car will be safely stored while you're away, and you will be directed to the next available shuttle bus and transferred to your terminal. On your return to Sydney, you'll need to call the car park to let them know that you need picking up. They will send a driver to come and collect you. Once you're back at the parking lot you can collect your vehicle and drive home in the comfort of your own car. You can see more details about each of the car parks below:

If you’re planning on dropping off or picking up passengers from Sydney Airport, there are several short term parking options. Given that rates are quite similar, which car park you select is largely dependent on whether you need to access the Domestic or International Terminal. If you want to be close to the Domestic Terminals, P1/P2 are a good option; these car parks are right in the middle of the terminal buildings. P1 is a 3-minute walk from either building, and P2 is 5 minutes away. You'll pay $19.90 for an hour, and for 1-2 hours at these car parks. If you need to be nearer to the International Terminal, you're limited to P7, which charges the same tariffs for short stays. 

The car parks and zones which offer hourly rates are P1/P2, P3, P7, Express Pick-up and Priority Pick-up. It’s also possible to park at the Blu Emu car park, however this would mean catching a shuttle bus to T2 or T3. This is the most affordable official airport car park, and the furthest from the terminals. You can pre-book a 2 or 3 hour 'Quick Trip' on Sydney Airport's website, for stays at P2 and P7. Priced at $37.90, Quick Trips are for longer send offs and important goodbyes, however your booking will be void if you arrive 2 or more hours later than your booked entry time.

The rates above are for drive-in parking. It is not possible to book parking at the Express Pick-up or Priority Pick-up online. The Accessible Pick-up Area by Arrivals is free, but drivers must remain in their vehicle at all times.
