Overview: Parking at Melbourne Airport

Parking at Melbourne Airport is going to differ depending on what you are looking for. You can be assured, however, that you will generally find three types of parking services’ available: car parks with shuttle services, valet services, and those within walking distance of the airport terminals. But, don’t stress about choosing, Flyparks has you covered below on all you need to know to choose an efficient, trustworthy parking option. 


Airport Parking at Melbourne Airport with Shuttle Services

Booking Melbourne Airport parking with shuttle services is recommended for those who wish to be budget-conscious and not pay exorbitant costs for airport parking. Travellers will be able to find the cheapest airport parking Melbourne when they book with an off-site, reputable car park provider located minutes from the terminals. 

You don't have to take from us, though. We recommend reading user reviews of the car parks listed on Flyparks given by past travellers. This ensures you know what to expect when it comes to security features, customer service, and overall, the quality of the car park.  

Arrival: Drive to the car park, check in with the attendant using your confirmation email, park your car or handover your keys (depending on if it's valet style or not) and board the shuttle to Melbourne Airport.

Return: On your return to the airport, collect your luggage and call the shuttle number on your booking confirmation. The driver will then direct you to the pick-up location and be on their way to greet you and take you back to the car park to collect your vehicle. 

While using shuttle service parking at Melbourne Airport will save you significant costs, it will require you to plan a bit. For all car parks located a shuttle ride away, Flyparks recommends arriving at the car park 15 - 30 minutes before you need to check in at the terminals.

Flyparks recommends the following car parks with shuttle services for short or long term parking at Melbourne Airport:

Jetaway Airport Parking ($93.75 for 1 Week)

Jetaway Parking is known repeatedly for offering the cheapest Melbourne Airport parking rates. Open 24/7/365, Jetaway only charges $93.75 for a week of parking.

Past user reviews highlight their prompt pick-up and drop-off services in addition to their reliable, accommodating customer care team.

Flyparks recommends Jetaway for those who want to save on airport parking Melbourne without compromising quality. Additionally, Jetaway Airport Parking is recommended for travellers who have late night or early-morning flights, as the shuttle service will be available at any time.

Melrose Airport Parking Reviews

Value Parking Melbourne Airport ($96.00 for 1 Week)

Rated 3.5 / 5 with over 590 Google Reviews 

value-car-park-melbourne-airportThe Value Car Park at Melbourne Airport is an open-air car park designed for budget-conscious travellers. The car park offers a shuttle service, that will transfer passengers to and from the terminals every 15 minutes, 24/7. The shuttle bus has 8 stops in its route, with stops every few minutes between T1 and T4.

For only $96.00 for 1 week of parking, Flyparks recommends this car park to those who'd like to save on airport parking Melbourne, but don't mind waiting some time for a shuttle service. Travellers can drive up to the Value Car Park on their day of departure, however doing so does run the risk of wasting time looking for an available bay, or the car lot being at capacity, which has been the case reported by past travellers. To ensure a spot is available, book your spot online and in advance, you will save both time and money. Despite the low costs of this car park, user reviews are mixed on the quality of the parking experience. Overall, the Value Car Park is considered a cheap airport parking tullamarine option, but there are more affordable available.

Value Parking Melbourne Airport Reviews


Value Express Car Park ($124.00 for 1 Week)

The Value Express Car Park is designed for travellers who don't want to spend time looking for a spot in the Value Car Park lot, and rather have their car parked for them. Travellers parking at this lot will still need to take a 3 - 8 minute shuttle bus ride to the airport terminals and park in an open-air car park facility. The Value Express charges the same rates as the Value Car Park, however, a one time fee of $24.00 applies to the duration. 

The shuttle bus is not on-demand, meaning travellers may have a waiting time to board the bus as it departs every 15 minutes to and from the terminals. Overall, it is not a bad choice for Melbourne Airport parking, but it is recommended only for those who don't mind paying high Melbourne Airport parking rates to have a valet-style parking experience even when it requires a shuttle service. Additionally, the Value Express Car Park Melbourne is only available during the Autumn, Winter, Spring, and Summer holidays.

For a much lower price and the same parking process, you can park with Jetaway or Melrose Airport Parking.

Valet Parking at Melbourne Airport

For those looking for maximum convenience and don't mind paying higher costs to do so, valet parking is a great option for a hassle-free airport parking in Melbourne. The protocol is simple, and detailed below. 

Arrival: Drive up to the car park on your day of departure and show the car park attendant your booking confirmation. You will then leave your car at the drop-off spot, typically in front of the service station or car park's office. An attendant will then assist you by unloading your baggage and collecting your car keys. You will then be directed towards the terminals. 

Return: On your return to the airport, collect your luggage and walk to where you dropped your car off. Inform the agent of your vehicle make or hand over your booking confirmation again. They will retrieve your car and bring it to you so you can be on your way home in minutes. 

While valet parking in Melbourne is a bit more costly than parking with a shuttle service, it does ensure maximum convenience and proximity to the airport terminals. Flyparks recommends it most for people with families, decreased mobility, and multiple pieces of luggage or items that are difficult to transport (strollers, surfboards, large musical instruments). Below are all the valet parkings at Melbourne Airport: 


Qantas Valet Parking ($550.00 for 1 Week)

Rated 3.5 / 5 with over 16 Google Reviews

qantas-valet-melbourneParking with Qantas Valet Melbourne Airport offers travellers the convenience of being at the doors of Terminal 1. As its name may imply, Qantas Valet is located on the arrivals level outside the Qantas Domestic Terminal. The services are only available from 05:00 am - 01:00 am. So if you have a late night flight arriving after 01:00 or before 5:00 am, it will not be the best option to choose for your Melbourne Airport parking as you won't be able to access your car.

While Melbourne Airport parking rates will be higher when parking with Qantas, those who do park here will have the opportunity to pay for a car cleaning service whilst away for an extra fee. Flyparks recommends this car park most for those flying from Terminal 1, due to its proximity.

Qantas Parking Melbourne Airport Reviews


Valet Car Park ($632.00 for 1 Week)

valet-car-park-melbourneThe Valet Car Park at Melbourne Airport is not too dissimilar to Qantas Valet Parking. However, it does offer a bit higher price at $632.00 for 1 week of parking at Melbourne Airport. The Valet Car Park is owned and operated by Melbourne Airport and is located on Level 2 of the Terminal 1, 2, & 3 car park. Due to its location, travellers flying from T4 will have the shortest walk from the Melbourne Airport parking to the terminal.

Like Qantas Valet Parking, the Valet Car Park is only open during specific hours, from 04:00 - 01:00 am, so you can't access your car if your flight arrives or departs outside these hours. The Valet Car Park, does, however, have a Customer Service team available 24/7, which you can call for any service or vehicle-specific inquiries.

Airport Parking Melbourne within Walking Distance of Terminals

people walking across street with suitcase

If you wish to park directly on Melbourne Airport parking grounds, you can park with the following official car parks: Terminal Parking, Premium Parking, & Business Parking.

If you prefer to be within a few minutes of the terminals or are flying with Qantas, Virgin, or an international airline, Flyparks recommends checking out the car parks below. Do keep in mind, however, that the Melbourne Airport parking rates associated with these car parks are steep, and the reviews are mixed, so we always recommend reading the reviews of a car park before booking your spot. 

Arrival: For travellers that pre-booked their parking online, simply drive up to the car park gates and scan your QR code received as part of your booking confirmation sent via email. The QR scanner is at the base of the entry/exit machine. The car park's technology will then recognise your booking and the entry gate will open. If the gate does not open, press and hold the 'HELP' button on the car park's gate to speak with a member of staff. 

For those that didn't book their parking in advance, be sure to arrive at the car park 30 minutes before you need to check in, as there is the possibility that the car park you wish to park at will be full, and you will need to find another lot. Upon arrival at any of the car parks listed below, scan or tap your credit card at the entry gate. Apple and Google Pay are also accepted.

Return: Travellers who booked their parking online will need to scan the same QR code they did upon arrival, to exit. If your flight is delayed and you are late getting back to your vehicle, there is a 2-hour grace period so you will not incur additional fees if you exit 2 hours past the return time you selected on your booking confirmation. If you scanned your credit card to enter the car park, you will need to scan the same card to exit. 


Terminal Car Park Melbourne Airport ($392.00 for 1 Week) 

terminal-car-park-melbourneDesigned for travellers flying out of T1, T2, T3, or T4, the Terminal Car Parks at Melbourne Airport offer an overall convenient parking experience, but for a high price, and if you book in advance. While convenient, the downside of this car park is that you will need to offload your luggage yourself, pay for some of the most expensive Melbourne Airport parking rates on the market, and find an available parking bay. However, the benefit lies in the fact that you will only be minutes away from the check-in desks at any one of the terminals, and you will receive your first 15 minutes of parking at this car park free should you need to quickly drop off or pick up someone.

Travellers who choose this car park as their airport parking Melbourne will have direct access to Terminals 1, 2, & 3 via a linkbridge, and be only 100 metres, or 1 - 3 minutes by foot, from Terminal 4. Due to the proximity between the car park and T4, the Terminal Car Park is especially popular amongst travellers flying from T4 with Jetstar, TigerAir, REX, or Air North at Melbourne Airport. Accessible parking bays are available for those with a visible disability parking permit. At present, the airport has not disclosed what security features the Terminal Car Park(s) has.

Business Car Park Melbourne Airport ($632.00 for 1 Week) 

Rated 2.0 / 5 with 3 Google Reviews

business-parking-melbourne-airportMelbourne Airport's Business Car Park is located 50 metres from Terminal 1, making it a great choice for Qantas travellers and those flying domestically. The car park itself has shade covered cloth parking available. It won't be the best choice for travellers looking for affordable long term parking Melbourne Airport due to its high parking rates which start at $237.00 for 3 days, $395.00 for 5 days, $632.00 for 8 days, and $1,185.00 for 15 days, or 2 weeks.

The limited Google Reviews available state the quality of the car park is substandard due to its litter and lack of observable security measures in place. However, user reviews have reported that it is a great, convenient location and is therefore recommended for travellers who want a short walk to the terminals.

More Info →


Premium Parking ($632.00 for 1 Week) 

premium-parking-melbourne-airportTravellers who seek an undercover facility for their car that is minutes away from all terminals should consider Premium Parking at Melbourne Airport. Self-park premium parking is available at two locations - Level 1 of the Terminal 4 Car Park and Level 2 of Terminal 1, 2, & 3 Car Park. Parking at the former allows travellers just a 100 metre walk to the terminals, while parking at the latter ensures direct terminal access. Travellers using this car park will self-park their car in the bays closest to the Terminal 1, 2, & 3 walkway.

All travellers considering this parking are advised to book on the Melbourne Airport official website for relatively cheap Melbourne Airport parking rates compared to what you will pay by driving up on the day of departure, without an advanced booking. All travellers utilising this car park will be able to keep their keys with them whilst away.

How do I find cheap parking at Melbourne Airport?

To find cheap Melbourne Airport parking, we recommend the following: 


Reserve your parking in advance to pay less

To find cheap parking at Melbourne Airport, book your spot in advance. Parking at Melbourne Airport is always possible, but as the time towards your designated date moves closer, spaces tend to decrease, while prices increase. To park for less, reserving your spot in advance is imperative.

If you are a regular flyer from Melbourne Airport, you are probably aware that cheap car parks like Easy Airport parking tend to get full fast, especially during the holiday season. If you book in advance, your spot is guaranteed. 


Compare cheap parking prices before booking

By using a comparison platform like Flyparks, you are guaranteed an overview of all the offered car parks at Melbourne Airport, their rates, reviews, and features, in one place. This will guide you to making the most informed decision based on your needs. 


Do I need to pre-book Melbourne Airport parking? Can I park without booking?

You do not need to pre-book your Melbourne Airport parking, although it is recommended, especially if you are looking for cheap Melbourne Airport parking. You are welcome to show up at the car park of your choice on the day of departure and inquire about a parking spot for your desired duration; however, doing so does run the risk that the car park may be full and rates will also be higher than when booked online. 


Is it cheaper to book Melbourne Airport parking online? 

Yes, when you book online and particularly, in advance, you can save up to 40% on Melbourne Airport parking rates. Flyparks recommends booking your airport parking 3 weeks to a month before your flight departure, especially if you are travelling in the summer months or during a holiday.


What time should I arrive at the car park for domestic & international Flights out of Melbourne Airport? 

In general, you should plan to arrive at the car park 30 - 45 minutes before you need to be at the airport check-in desk. For domestic flights out of Melbourne Airport, plan to get to the car park around 1 hour and 45 minutes before your flight. For international flights out of Melbourne Airport, plan to get to the car park around 3 hours and 45 minutes before your flight.


Where to park at Melbourne Airport for international flights? 

Those departing from Melbourne Airport’s International Terminal, or T2, are recommended to park at the Terminal Car Park, as it is the closest official parking to the terminal. There is also a pick-up & drop-off located on Level 1, right outside of Departure Drive.

For those who don’t mind taking a quick shuttle to the international terminal, you can park at any of the off-site parking locations offered on Flyparks, as the shuttle buses will generally bring you to the drop-off location outside of terminal 1 or 2. 


How do I pay for parking in Melbourne? 

You can pay for parking in Melbourne with a debit or credit card. The most widely accepted are Visa, Mastercard, and American Express, in addition to Apple Pay and Google Pay. Be advised that cash isn’t widely accepted anymore, so it is best to have a debit or credit card on you when paying for parking. 


Are off-site car parks safe? 

Off-site car parks at Melbourne Airport, particularly those offered by Flyparks, are extremely reputable and secure. Flyparks only works with providers who have enhanced security features and a track record of pleased customers. But don’t just take it from us, before booking, we recommend reading Google reviews left by other users who have used the parkings themselves. 


How much is long-term parking at Melbourne Airport?

Long-term, off-site parking at Melbourne Airport for a period of 16 days, or 2 weeks, will cost you between $158.00 - $189.00. On average, long-term parking (16 days) per day at an off-site car park is $12.50. These rates are subject to change, however, based on how far in advance one books, the season in which they book, the duration, and the type of service.

Parking for 16 days at an official on-site Melbourne Airport car park, on the other hand, will cost you between $686.00 - $1,106. Again, these rates are subject to change, however, based on how far in advance one books, the season in which they book, the duration, and the type of service.


Is there a maximum height allowed?

Maximum car heights are going to vary depending on the individual car park. For on-site official Melbourne Airport car parks, you can expect the height restriction to be 2.2 - 2.3 metres for all car parks beside the Value Car Park, which has a height restriction of 3.3 metres. 

The majority of car parks offered on Flyparks do not have height restrictions, except for 2.6 metres at Melrose Airport parking, and 4 metres at Andrews Airport Parking. We must inform you that certain vehicles are not accepted by all car parks, so always reach out to us if you are unsure. 


Can I keep my keys?

For all off-site car parks offered on Flyparks, you will need to leave your keys with the provider, such as at Jetaway Airport parking because they offer valet-style services and will need to park and deliver your car to you. 

For on-site Melbourne Airport car parks, you will similarly need to leave your keys whilst parking at any valet-style car parks, such as Premium Valet and Qantas Valet. 



Is it cheaper to park at the airport or take a taxi?

Airport parking can be expensive. So, depending on where you live, taking a taxi or Uber to Melbourne Airport may save you money, particularly for those who live under 10 minutes away. However, parking for a few days or more at an off-site airport car park will guarantee you find cheap Melbourne airport parking. Remember, the longer you park, the cheaper the rates! Not to mention that parking at Melbourne Airport will save you time if arriving and departing from the airport without a hassle is important to you.
