How to Cut Costs with Corporate Parking at Melbourne Airport


Managing travel expenses is a common headache for businesses. From plane tickets to taxi fares, business travels can strain your budget, especially with rising transportation costs.

At Melbourne Airport, we recognise the impact this can have on your finances. With our Corporate Parking Program, you can check off airport parking fees from your list of significant business expenses. From discounts on parking rates to itemised monthly statements, keeping track of your business travel expenses has never been easier.

Read on and discover how our Corporate Parking Program can make a real difference in your financial planning.

How Our Corporate Parking Program Works

Melbourne Airport’s Corporate Parking Program is a savvy solution for businesses seeking to manage their travel costs effectively. It’s specifically designed to streamline your company's airport parking needs.

When you sign up, we’ll provide you with up to 50 parking access cards. This is what you will use to enter and exit the designated Melbourne Airport car park. You can request more passes if necessary, subject to availability and approval.

The program operates on a licence fee system. Each corporate client will have a 30-day monthly credit account. At the end of the monthly billing period, we’ll send you itemised statements. If your annual spending doesn't meet the minimum requirement, you'll simply pay the difference. This ensures you only pay for what you use.

The initial contract term is 12 months, with automatic monthly renewals thereafter. If the program no longer meets your needs, you can also opt out with a 30-day notice. Email us or check out our Corporate Parking page to learn more.

How Much Can You Potentially Save?

The exact figures will depend on the number of employees and how often they go on business trips. However, in general, opting for our Corporate Parking Program is more cost-effective than taking a taxi to the airport.

Let me demonstrate an example.

Say, five employees take trips to the airport three times a week. A one-way taxi ride from Melbourne CBD to Tullamarine costs approximately $55. That's $110 round trip per employee, totalling $1,650 per week for the team. Over a month? You’re looking at around $6,600.

Now, consider the Corporate Parking Program. With 15% off the usual rates and a monthly spend focused on savings, the costs look different. Let’s assume all three employees opt for our Terminal Car Park which costs $49 per day. With a 15% discount, it drops to $41.65 per car daily. That’s $124.95 per employee per week for three days of parking, or $624.75 for the team. Monthly? Just about $2,499. Even if you factor in gas costs, that’s still some significant savings.

Over a year, the savings stack up. You’d spend around $79,200 on taxis. With Corporate Parking, that expense drops to about $29,988. That's a potential saving of approximately $49,212!

What about shorter, less frequent trips? Let’s say two employees head to Sydney for a day trip once a week. The taxi still costs $110 each for a round trip, summing up to $220 weekly or $880 monthly.

With Corporate Parking at $41.65 per day, each trip would cost $83.30 for both employees. That’s $333.20 monthly—a clear saving. Annually, parking instead of taking taxis saves about $9,893.60.

Plus, you’re parked within the airport's vicinity. That means you’re less likely to miss your flight and spend more money on rebooking fees due to unreliable and irregular shuttle bus services typical of off-airport parking providers.
