Special Assistance Parking at Bristol

The Blue badge holder bays are located in all the car parks and the support team is there to assist with anything you may need. In all the car parks, the special assistance bays are much closer to the terminal and adjacent to the reception room in the Silver Zone. All the shuttle buses are wheelchair friendly, so when you’re ready simply press the wheelchair ramp button on the outside of the bus or you can ask the driver and they will be more than happy to help you out.

Blue Badge holders can make full use of the Special Assistance passenger Drop & Go facilities. It comes with 30 minutes free parking where you can take your blue badge to the Customer Service Point inside the Terminal and ask them to issue you a parking ticket for free.

Important Notice – Due to current renovation work, the special assistance Drop & Go bays will not be in use until late Spring 2020.

Silver Zone Car Park

There’s a shuttle bus service from this one. It’s 4-5 minutes out from the terminal but it’s usually cheapest option. It includes Special Assistance parking for those passengers needing an extra hand.

Waiting Zone

This car park is perfect for taxi drop off or if you didn’t mind being dropped off further from the terminal. This is located near the Silver Zone entrance car park.

It allows one hour of free parking so you can easily wait here for your passengers before picking them up from a short stay or another car park. But if you wanted to be picked up or dropped off using this car park, then there is a bus service which frequently goes to the terminal building!

Though, if you want to stay longer than an hour then the prices are £25 for up to 2 hours and £20 for every hour after that.

Premier Car Park

This one’s ideal if you’re a business traveller. It’s a few minutes walk from the terminal. There’s no need to book so you can just pay as you go, but long term stays are capped at 15 days. Again, you can find Special Assistance stations by the bus shelter and disabled bays are located closest to the terminal.

This costs £70 for any time period 0-24 hours and £25 per day after.

Long Stay Car Park

0-24 hours £45
2 days £64
3 days £81
4-7 days £100
8-10 days £123
Every day thereafter £10

Long Stay is a great choice if you’re leaving your vehicle for longer than one day. For Special Assistance parking, find the station near to the bus shelter and press the intercom. There’s a short 24 hour shuttle bus operating between the long stay car park and the airport, and all drivers are able to operate a ramp and assist you.

Meet and Greet Parking

Right next to the terminal, you can find the Meet and Greet Parking. You need to book ahead if you want Meet and Greet at Bristol Airport but it does offer the premium service for Bristol passengers.

Simply book in advance, drop off your car in the Drop & Go area which is next to the terminal building.

Visit the Meet and Greet cabin with your keys, booking reference and flight details. Then simply walk over to the terminal with your luggage and let the holidays begin! On the other side, simply pop back into the same cabin to pick up your car.

Parking at Airport Hotels

It’s also worth noting that sometimes getting an airport hotel with parking included can work out to the same price (or cheaper) as parking alone, and is often far more convenient if you’ve got an early flight.
