Birmingham Airport is an active airport with thousands of people travelling through it every single day. There are lots of car parks dotted around the area catering for short stay and long stay customers, depending on whether they are travelling abroad or simply dropping someone off or meeting someone.
If you are travelling from this airport in the near future, you should definitely consider booking your parking requirements online in advance of when you need them. These car parks are always busy so the last thing you should expect is to turn up and automatically be able to find a space. Even if you can, you will find the amount you pay is a lot higher than it would be if you booked it online.
There is a way to ensure you never pay the gate price though, and it is as simple as booking online ahead of time. Providing you know the details of your flight you will be able to book your parking around it, ensuring you don’t have to worry about not being able to find a space once you arrive.
The cost you pay will vary depending on a number of factors. The first one is the distance from the terminal itself. If you want to be as close to the Birmingham Airport terminal as you can, to minimise the length of time it takes for you to get from your car to the terminal, you will pay more for the privilege. However it is often worth doing this because it will save you a lot of time and hassle in getting from A to B.
Of course you should bear your budget in mind for your whole trip when booking your Birmingham Airport parking. If you want to keep down costs as much as possible, look to book a space in one of the car parks that is furthest away from the airport terminal. It will take longer to get the transfer bus to the terminal, but you’ll save money by taking the longer route to get there.
