Booking a parking place at airport can be quite expensive and confusing. The best way to understand the parking zones at the airport is to visit the airport's website and check the information on car parking.
If you would like to drop off or pick up someone at the airport, you can access Drop Off zones for that purpose. However, some airports do not have these facilities. In such airports, limited waiting time is imposed. In the Drop off zones, vehicles are allowed to be parked for only a shorter duration for 15, 30 or 60 minutes. The costs of parking in these areas are usually high compared to other zones of the airport.
Short Stay parking areas is less expensive compared to Drop Off areas. If you wish to park your car for more than an hour or to six hours, you can make use of the Short Stay facility. Short Stay areas often have multi- storey parking areas to commute a large number of vehicles.
If you intend to stay for a longer duration i.e. for over six hours, you can access the Long Stay areas. Some airports have more than one Long Stay making it all the more convenient for passengers. You can also park you car here for several days but if you wish to park your car here for much longer duration, for instance for 15 days, it is advisable to book your parking space in advance to save on money.
In the entire parking zones available one can find dedicated bays for disabled drivers. Some airports also provide free parking spaces for the disabled drivers. You can also find dedicated parking zones for motorcycles at every airport.
Off-site parking areas or valet parking away from the airport can turn out to be much cheaper than parking your car at the airport. Except for the off-site airport parking zone, all the airport's car parking zones are located very close to the terminal so that passengers can conveniently commute to the desired destination. Some of the off-site airport parking zone also offer free shuttle bus service to the airport and back.

Payment of car parking fees can be done easily through the exit barriers located at the parking zones. You can also pay the fee at various paying counters located at the terminal of the airport.
