One of the UK’s more popular mid-sized airports, Doncaster Sheffield Airport plays host to around 1.5 million passengers every year. As it has few public transport links, most of these visitors arrive by car making parking difficult at the best of times and nearly-impossible at its worse. To help you navigate Doncaster’s parking solutions and choose the right ones for you we’ve created this handy guide.

UDoncaster Airport’s short-stay carpark has a dedicated pick-up and drop-off area which makes loading and unloading your passengers super-easy.

Doncaster Airport Short-stay Parking
The short-stay carpark at Doncaster airport is located directly in front of the main terminal doors – keeping the walking time between your car and the check-in desks to a minimum. The short-stay area is available to visitors planning to stay between a couple of minutes to several days. However, if you’re planning to stay for longer than a few days it’s advisable to book long-stay parking to keep costs to a minimum.
Slightly further away from the terminal than the short-stay parking area, Doncaster Airport’s long-stay parking is still within walking distance of check-in and offers much more affordable rates to visitors staying for longer than a few days. The carpark is secure and the perfect option for your vehicle when you’re jetting off for a week or two.
Those looking to indulge in a little VIP treatment should consider Doncaster Airport’s Meet and Greet service. Simply book online then meet with a professional valet who will help you take all your bags from the car before driving your vehicle to a secure parking zone. Then, upon your return, contact the valet and they’ll meet you with your car as you leave the airport.
While Doncaster Airport is much larger than some of the other airports in the UK, it still only has a single terminal. This means that every carpark has strong travel links to and from the main terminal – so you can be sure that wherever you park you’ll easily be able to get to your flight.
