There’s a free shuttle between there and the airport so your passengers will have to make the tail end of their car journey on their own.

However, you can drop passengers off at the airport itself, but you will have to pay. The Short Stay Parking is directly opposite the airport, next to the Holiday Inn on Caledonia Way. You can park and cross the road with your party into the airport.

Wheelchairs are available at request from the individual airlines, just contact your airline to pre-book yours.A new express pick-up point is available to motorists at the cost of £1.50 for up to 10 minutes and £2 for 20 minutes.

You can now pay for Fast Track Priority when parking at Glasgow Airport. You get access to a priority lane and are allocated a parking space nearest to the terminal access in Car Park 2 so you can get on your way as quickly as possible.

Hotel and Parking Deals at Glasgow Airport

One of the best ways to save money on your airport parking at Glasgow is to book a hotel with parking thrown in! Snazzy.

How does airport hotel and parking packages work? Basically you book a room (say on the night before an early flight) and you pay a small surcharge on top to leave you car at the hotel while you’re away.

As an example, Premier Inn offers Glasgow Airport Parking at just £4 a day. If you’re thinking of parking at the airport with a hotel stay on either side of your trip, it’s an easy way to save those pennies. Remember, you can only get those parking deals alongside a hotel room booking, you can’t book hotel parking without a booking reference.

There are 7 hotels at Glasgow Airport itself but the neighbouring town of Paisley is only a short walk away with many more hotels – plenty to choose from!

The disclaimer, four things to bear in mind…

  • Often, hotels won’t offer the extras (that means no meet-and-greet, or car wash)
  • You can’t demand that they hold on to your car (only certain hotels will offer the parking-hotel-package)
  • Most hotel-parking-packages will not offer a shuttle service to the terminals.
  • You have to leave the keys with your card number at reception when you leave on holiday. This is just so hotel attendants can move you vehicle if it’s causing an obstruction but generally it’s standard to help them manage their own car parks.
