Parking FAQ’s

Can I amend or cancel my booking?

If you have booked one of our Flexible products, you are able to amend or cancel your booking up to 24 hours before you are due to arrive without any cost. Our Non-Flexible products are non-cancellable and non-amendable.

I’ve pre-booked my parking, what happens when I arrive?

When you arrive at the car park your number plate should be recognised by our ANPR technology and lift the barrier for you. However, in case there are any issues, we recommend that you have your booking reference to hand just in case you need to speak to a member of our parking team who will be able to find your booking and let you in.

How safe are Southend Airport’s car parks?

All of our car parks are very safe and have all received ParkMark accreditation which means both ParkMark and the Police have signed them off as being safe and secure places to park your car. They are well lit and our on-site parking team do regular patrols.

What happens if I am late or early to the car park or my flight is delayed on my way back?

We understand that people can’t always arrive at our car parks exactly when they say they will, which is why we have a 4 hour grace period either side of your pre-booked entry and exit times. However if you overstay this grace period, you will be subject to our overstay charges, charged at the 24 hour turn up rate in each of our car parks.

Can I book parking for the same day I am travelling?

Yes, you can book parking up to 2 hours before you are due to arrive at the airport. However, to guarantee availability and to secure the best prices we recommend booking early.
