Turn Up and Park
At Bournemouth Airport, you don’t always need to pre-book your parking. If you prefer, you can simply turn up and park. However, if you want to guarantee your space and the best possible price then we do recommend that you pre-book as during peak periods we can’t always ensure a space will be available.
- You can turn up and park in our main car park but VIP parking and Meet and Greet Parking are pre-bookable only.
- Our car parks are clearly signposted and just a short walk from the terminal.
- Cash and all major credit cards accepted
