Parking within the airport grounds is a popular choice with many travellers, most notably for the convenience of being a short transfer away from the terminal and the peace of mind when it comes to car park security. At BCP we offer an extensive range of official, on-site Stansted parking from wallet-friendly Park and Rides like Long Stay and Mid Stay to hassle-free Meet and Greets.
On-site parking has a bit of a reputation for being pricey, however when you pre-book with BCP you can enjoy up to 40% off the turn-up prices! We also cover all of our Stansted parking packages with our Price Protection promise so you can be sure you're getting the very best deals online.

On-site parking within walking distance
For a speedy and fuss-free start to your trip look no further than the Short Stay car park. There are 3 Short Stay parking options:
Short Stay Premium (Orange and Red Zone) -The closest you can park to the terminal. Walk to check-in in 3 minutes.
Short Stay Green Zone - Located slightly further away from the terminal but still within easy distance (4-7 minute walk).
Short Stay Economy (Blue Zone) - The perfect option if you're on a tighter budget and don't mind a slightly longer walk. Check-in is about a 7-10 minute walk away.
At the Short Stay car park there's no designated spaces and no handing in your keys, simply park up and head straight to the terminal. Blue Badge spaces are available in the Green, Orange and Red zones, unfortunately there aren't any in the Blue zone.
Meet and Greet parking at Stansted airport
For a relaxing start to your holiday why not let a professional driver take care of all the parking for you? With Meet and Greet parking at Stansted simply drop your car off at the Meet and Greet bay at the Short Stay car park and let one the drivers handle your car. All you need to do is walk to check-in - you'll be there in 2 minutes. While you're away your car will be securely stored in an official on-site car park. On your return your car will be ready and waiting for you to collect from the Short Stay car park.
For a little bit extra there's also the option to upgrade to Meet and Greet Plus. In addition to enjoying the same smooth and time-saving parking service your package will also include Fast Lane Access. Up to 6 people can feel like a VIP and skip the queues at airport security - you'll be relaxing in the departure lounge in no time.
Valet parking is the easiest way to park at Stansted airport. Your holiday can start from the moment you hand your keys and car over to your driver right outside the terminal. Head straight to check-in while your fully insured driver takes your car to be parked in a secured facility within the airport grounds. When you touch back down your car will be ready to collect from the Short Stay car park just a 2 minute walk away from Arrivals. You'll be on the road home without any fuss.
Both Valet and Meet and Greet parking at Stansted would be ideal options for disabled customers since there's no need to worry about finding a space or catching a transfer bus.
