Arrival Procedure:

The car park has an automatic number plate recognition (ANPR) system, so please make sure you enter your vehicle registration number correctly when you make your booking. You should bring your booking confirmation to the car park.

On arrival drive up to the entry barrier, the machine will read and recognise your car registration number. This should take about 15 seconds. A ticket will be printed showing your booking reference and the barrier will lift. Park your car and transfer to the airport. If the barrier does not give you a ticket within 15 seconds, press the help button for assistance.

Departure Procedure:

Drive to the exit barrier. Insert the ticket you were provided on arrival and the barrier will open. If your ticket does not have your booking reference printed on it, above the bar code, please show your booking confirmation and entry ticket to a parking attendant, or press the call button on the exit barrier for help.


Leave the M11 at junction 8a if you are coming from the south, or junction 8 if you are coming from the north. At the motorway roundabout, follow signs for Stansted airport. At the next roundabout take the first exit, following signs for the long stay car park. Go straight on at the next roundabout, pass the Hilton hotel and take the next turning on the left into the long stay car park.


Transfers operate 24 hours per day, running every 15-20 minutes, taking approximately 15. There are three transfer buses, each bus goes to only one area of the car park - red, yellow or blue - match the colour of your entry ticket, to make sure you get on the right bus. Please allow 45 minutes for check in and transfer to the terminal. On your return, the bus stops outside the terminal are also colour-coded.


Car park is manned 24hrs, frequently patrolled and enclosed by security fencing. Comprehensive CCTV is in operation and the car park has been awarded the Park Mark award.
