What kind of traveller are you? Are you a backpacker, an overpacker, or a luxury traveller? No matter your travel style, Melbourne Airport has the perfect parking option for you.

With a mix of valet services, long-term lots, and convenient terminal parking, we make sure your parking experience matches your travel needs.

In this blog, we’ll lay down your parking options at Melbourne Airport, from premium spots right by the terminal to low-cost options, and help you find the perfect fit.

The Perfect Melbourne Airport Parking for Every Jetsetter

With over 30 million passengers each year, Melbourne Airport has catered to travellers from all walks of life. We understand that everyone has different needs and styles. That’s why we offer a wide range of parking options. Here, we'll break down each option and who it's best suited for, so you can quickly pick the perfect spot for your trip.

Value Car Park for the Budget-Conscious

If you’re on a tight travel budget, parking your car at the airport may seem like a luxury. Well, not at Melbourne Airport.

With the Value Car Park, budget-conscious travellers have a solid option. Here, you can park for only $12 per day. And if you book online, you may even get better parking rates than current drive-up rates. It's worth noting, however, that this car park doesn't offer hourly rates, so it’s better suited for long-term parking.

Yes, it’s outside the airport’s immediate vicinity. But don’t fret—there’s a free shuttle service running every 15 minutes 24/7. The parking is open-air, with a 3.3m clearance and accessible spots. The entire parking facility is also dotted with CCTVs, so you can jet off without worrying about your car.

So, if you're watching your wallet, the Value Car Park is your go-to. It's cheap, simple, and gets your car parked without stretching an already overstretched travel budget.

Terminal Car Park for the Overpacker

So, you’ve packed everything but the kitchen sink, huh? The Terminal Car Park is your best friend then.

I mean, if you’re parked offsite, imagine hauling your bags—the big ones stuffed to the brim and maybe a couple of carry-ons—from the offsite parking lot to the airport terminals. Sounds like a nightmare, right?

That’s where the convenience of the Terminal Car Parks comes in. It’s right outside Terminal 1, 2, and 3, with Terminal 4 just a few minutes’ walk away. This means less hassle and less time dragging your heavy bags around. The longest journey your bags will probably make is from the boot of your car to the luggage trolley.

The best part is you can park for the first 15 minutes for free! That's plenty of time to unload all those bags. It’s perfect for short-term parking or those quick pick-ups and drop-offs.

For anyone who cannot help but pack everything, our Terminal Car Parks are the perfect way to start your trip on the right foot.

Valet Parking for the Luxury-Seeker

For those who love a touch of luxury in their travels, Melbourne Airport's Valet Parking Service hits the mark perfectly. Just drive in, hand over your keys, and that’s it. No wandering around looking for a parking space. Why fuss with parking when someone else can sort it for you, right?

Plus, the parking area is on Level 2 of the Terminal 1, 2 & 3 Car Park. That means it’s perfect for those flying with Virgin Australia or those heading to the international terminal. It’s still handy if you’re flying with Jetstar, Rex, or any other domestic carrier, though you might need to stretch your legs a little bit, especially if you’re parked at Terminal 1.

Our Valet Parking services are open from 4 AM to 1 AM. However, if you need assistance outside these hours, our friendly customer service team is here 24/7.

Premium Car Park for Those Who Value Comfort

If comfort is a top priority on your travel checklist, our Premium Car Parks will surely tick all your boxes.

For one, it’s super close to the airport terminals. We’re talking direct access to Terminals 1, 2, and 3 and just 100m away from Terminal 4. You’re at the check-in counters before you even know it.

It's undercover, too, which means you won’t have to worry about the weather as you make your way to the airport. Rain or shine, you and your car are covered. And in Victoria’s unpredictable weather, that’s a godsend.

In short, if you’re all about parking without the hassle and getting on with your trip comfortably, our Premium Car Park has your back. It’s easy, quick, and keeps you dry - what’s not to like?

Business Car Park for Busy Executives

Located directly opposite Terminal 1, Melbourne Airport’s Business Car Park is a top pick among business travellers. At just 50m from the entry gates, it’s practically doorstep service.

The quick transition from car to check-in is perfect if you’re on a time crunch. It may even leave some room for you to get that presentation finished before the final boarding call. Plus, with a streamlined online booking process and a QR code-powered entry and exit, you spend less time worrying about parking and more time focusing on the business at hand.

Qantas Valet Parking for Discerning Travellers

Ever wished you could just teleport from your car to the check-in counter? Qantas Valet Parking at Melbourne Airport is pretty much the next best thing.

Smack dab right at the heart of Terminal 1, it’s perfect for Qantas travellers looking for the ultimate airport parking convenience. You just drive up, hand over your keys, and that's it. Your car gets parked for you. No circling for spots. It's straight to the terminal, fast and hassle-free.
