About the Melbourne Value Car Park

The Value Car Park is Melbourne Airport’s low-rate parking option, with rates starting at $12.00 per day. The car park is open-air and serves Terminals 1 & 4. The complimentary shuttle bus service runs 24/7 at 15-minute intervals to transfer passengers to and from the car park.

Value parking accommodates various vehicle types, from hatchbacks and minivans to 4WDs and sports cars. However, vehicles must meet a height restriction of 3.3 meters and fit within a standard parking bay. Oversized vehicles, such as camper vans or trailers, are not permitted. The car park often sells out during busy periods like weekends due to limited space, so book your bay in advance.

Flyparks recommends this car park for budget-conscious travellers who don't mind longer transfer times to the terminals.

The Positive Reviews: 

Positive user reviews mentioned the low, affordable parking rates, relative convenience of the shuttle buses, and an easy online booking process.

Negative user reviews mention the congested car park, rude shuttle bus drivers, infrequent shuttle bus pick up / drop off times, long shuttle service queues, overcrowded shuttle buses, poor signage to enter / exit the car park, and damage done to travellers' cars with no accountability taken by the airport. Many user reviews recommend parking elsewhere because the low costs are not worth the inconveniences experienced, and the lack of security present. 


How to Book the Value Car Park at Melbourne Airport?

Travellers can book the car park online, at the official Melbourne Airport website. After booking your spot online, arrive at the Value Car Park on your day of travel, and scan the QR code present in your confirmation email to gain entry. If you plan to pay upon arrival, you must scan your credit card to gain access at the entry gate. Travellers who pay with a credit card upon arrival must use the same credit card upon exit. If you don't, you will be charged twice and likely not entitled to a refund or credit on those charges - so, use the same card!
