Dropping off or picking up someone? There are a number of options for pick up and drop off parking at Liverpool Airport depending on how long you are expecting to stay:

  • Express Drop Off and Pick Up Car Park (facing the terminal, minimum £5 charge)
  • Drop Off 2 (400m from the Terminal and free for up to 40 minutes)
  • Multi Storey Car Park (short stay parking best suited for those expecting to spend longer dropping off and picking up).

Read on for more information about the options available.

Express Drop Off and Pick Up Car Park 


Located close to the terminal building, the Express Drop Off and Pick Up Car Park is designed for drivers who wish to stop briefly to drop off or collect passengers. There are covered waiting areas for passengers as well as pay on exit technology, where drivers can pay by card without having to leave their vehicle. There are normally four exit barriers in operation.

Travelling passengers who hold a valid Blue Badge can reclaim up to 40 minutes free parking in our Express Pick-up & Drop-off car park. More information about the refund process can be found here.

Drop Off 2 Car Park

This car park is designed for drivers who wish to drop off or collect passengers free of charge and is a short walk from the terminal building. The free period in Drop Off 2 Car Park is 40 minutes, allowing passengers plenty of time to make the short walk to and from the terminal should they wish to accompany passengers and still park free of charge. For periods of stay over 40 minutes better value for money parking is available at the Multi Storey Car Park.

Please be advised you must press for a receipt before making a payment. A receipt will not be issued if you pay before selecting the receipt button.

Refunds only apply to stays under 40 minutes. Should you exceed 40 minutes in the car park the standard tariff applies and no refund will be issued.

The Multi Storey Car Park is the most cost effective option for passengers who wish to park close to the terminal building for longer than 40 minutes. This car park is the recommended option for drivers who are coming to pick up and drop off at Liverpool Airport who wish to accompany them to or from the terminal building.

Coach and Large Minibus Access

The charge for coaches and large minibuses over 16 seats wishing to use the coach bays on the terminal front is £20 per drop off and pick up. This allows vehicles to remain in the area until all passengers and luggage have been dropped off or picked up. Please note that this will need to be pre-paid in advance.

Any minibuses that are both under 16 seats and under 2.15m height can use the Express Drop off & Pick Up Car Park, where the same rates as all other vehicles apply.

Minibuses that are below 16 seats but higher than 2.15m can use a dedicated area within the Long Stay Car Park, located behind the Multi Storey Car Park. Rates are £10 for up to 1 hour, £15 up to 2 hours and daily long stay charges apply thereafter. Payment should be made at a pay station prior to exit.



I am dropping off my family and I want to go into the terminal. Where should I park?

If you wish to stay for over 10 mins we recommend you use the short stay car park in the Multi Storey Car Park or Drop Off 2.

Why has there been an increase in the tariff at Express Drop Off & Pick Up?

The tariff in the Express Drop Off and Pick Up facility has been increased in order to better manage demand and reduce congestion in this area caused by growing passenger numbers and popularity of products. The increased charge is to encourage more drivers to make use of the other parking areas available. This facility is intended for drivers who wish to stop briefly to drop off or collect passengers closest to the terminal building, however vehicles are remaining in this area for longer than is necessary. The new tariffs will mean that vehicles waiting in this area for over 10 minutes will be better served by the short stay rates available in the Multi Storey Car Park.

Where is ‘Drop off 2’ and is it far away?

Drop Off 2 is signposted on the approach road overhead gantry and is 400 metres away from the terminal next to Car Hire and Cheap Parking car parks. There is pedestrian access and it takes approximately 8 minutes to walk to the terminal building.

Is there a shuttle bus?

No. Unlike many other UK airports, all on site car parks at Liverpool John Lennon Airport are within walking distance of the terminal building, avoiding the need to wait for a shuttle bus.

What if I am a Blue Badge holder?

If you hold a valid Blue Badge and you are travelling, you can reclaim up to 40 minutes free parking in our Express Pick-up & Drop-off Car Park. You can find out more information on how to apply for a refund and what information is needed here. If you have any further questions regarding Blue Badge parking at Liverpool Airport, please email us at [email protected].

What if I am a taxi driver and regularly use the airport to set down/pick up?

All standard tariffs apply to taxi companies and shuttle bus operators wishing to use the Express Drop Off & Pick Up Car Park and Drop off 2.
