How Does Terminal 1 Parking Melbourne Airport Work?

To park at Terminal 1 Park, travellers can book their spot online or pay upon arrival. Booking online is recommended to save on rates & to ensure the car park is not full upon your arrival. 


Upon Arrival

If you booked online, arrive at the Terminal 1 Car Park on your departure day and scan the QR code from your confirmation email at the entry barrier. If you plan to pay upon arrival, scan your credit card at the entry gate.
