All of the options for airport valet parking Sydney operate similarly. You either book online or turn up on the day, and drop-off your vehicle. You will have to hand over your car keys to the trained staff at the car park, so they can safely park your car on your behalf. While you complete the short walk to your terminal, your car will be securely stored in an undercover facility.
Once you arrive back in Sydney, a driver will meet you outside your Terminal and drop-off your car. They’ll hand back your car keys, help you with your luggage, and then ensure that you can travel home without issue.
There are four companies which provide valet services at Kingsford Smith, which are Pronto Valet, Qantas Valet, and Virgin Premium Valet. Your choice of valet parking company should factor in the terminal your flight departs from, and the airline you booked with.
Virgin Valet Sydney limits the use of their valet services to their own customers, meaning that you need to be flying with Virgin to use this car park. Qantas Valet Parking Sydney Airport similarly targets its own customers and offers frequent flyer points for those who opt to leave their car with Qantas Valet. If you're flying with another airline, your best choice is Pronto Valet Sydney Airport, which offers valet parking Sydney International Airport as well as valet parking Sydney Domestic Airport.
All four companies offer car washing services at additional cost. If you’d like your car professionally cleaned while you’re away, you will need to enquire on arrival. Prices start at $45.00 for small cars and $50.00 for larger vehicles, and go up to $95.00 and $100.00 respectively, for the platinum package. Qantas Valet charges between $55.00 and $150.00 for sedans, and $65.00 to $185.00 for 4WDs and vans.
The options for valet parking at Sydney Domestic Airport are Pronto Valet, Qantas Valet, and Virgin Premium Valet. Pronto Valet is close to both Terminals 2 and 3, T2 Valet and Virgin Premium Valet are both linked to Terminal 2, whereas Qantas Valet provides seamless access to T3.
The two options for valet parking Sydney International are Pronto Valet Arrivals and Pronto Valet Departures. The Arrivals service is on the same level as International Arrivals, whereas the Departures service is located directly opposite the T1 check-in counters on Departures Road.
Since the valet car parks at Sydney Airport are undercover, there are vehicle height restrictions in place, which in most cases is 2 or 2.1 metres. If your vehicle cannot fit inside a standard sized parking space, you will need to make other arrangements
It's important to take note of the different opening hours for each car park. While most are open for the first and last flight arriving/departing at SYD, not all are open 24/7. Qantas Valet and Pronto Valet are open between 5.00am – 11.30pm weekdays, and 5.30am –11.30pm on weekends and public holidays, while Virgin Premium Valet states that it is open during the airport's own hours of operation
You will need to hand over one set of car keys when using a valet service, so that the driver can meet you at the terminal
At present, it is not possible to book at Virgin Premium Valet online. You simply need to drive up on the day, and the staff there will take care of the rest. You can prepay for valet parking at Qantas Valet and Pronto Valet Sydney Airport on the official website, or drive up on the day of travel. Unfortunately, it’s not possible to book either service through Flyparks at present.
You can instead search, compare, and book at a range of private car parks near Sydney Airport on our website. Each of the independent car parks featured offer free shuttle bus transfers to the airport terminals and back, which is a more cost effective solution to parking at Kingsford Smith than premium valet parking.
