  2. Select Your Dates: Input the dates and times of your departure and return. Keep in mind that Value Express Parking is only available for specific dates and times.

After payment, you’ll receive a confirmation email with a QR code. You’ll need to show this to the parking attendant when pulling up at the Value Car Park

Getting to the Value Express Car Park

Value Express Parking shares the same car park as our Value Parking option. To get there, start by taking the Tullamarine Freeway towards the airport. This Melbourne Airport car park is located just off Airport Drive. As you drive towards the terminals, keep to the right at the intersection on Airport Drive and make a right turn into the Value Car Park.

Look for the reddish-orange sign marking the entrance to the Value Car Park. Scan your QR code at the gate, then head towards the dedicated Value Express Area within the car park.

At the entrance, present your booking to the parking attendant and hand over your keys. Once parked, you'll find a designated bus stop where you can catch the shuttle bus. It’s near an orange facility with a letter on its sidewall - Bus Stop B. The shuttle bus, also orange, clearly indicates on the front which car park it serves, ensuring you get to and from the airport terminals with ease.
