How early to arrive at Luton?

For parking at Luton we advise you to be present at the car park or at the departure hall at least 2.5-3 hours in advance. This is because Luton Airport advises you to be present at the check-in desk 2 hours in advance. The three hours may sound a bit long, but it gives you all the time you need to drop off your car, take the shuttle to Luton, and gives extra time to spare in case of traffic delays. Arriving early ensures you can relax and travel stress-free.

Park and Ride 

If you have chosen Luton Park & Ride, you will take a shuttle bus to the terminal, after parking your vehicle. Most times you can immediately board the shuttle, but it is sometimes the case that the shuttle bus has just left, and you will have to wait for its return to the car park. Shuttles take a maximum of 30 minutes between rides.

Meet and Greet 

If you have booked Luton Meet & Greet, we advise you to arrive at the meeting point 3 hours in advance. The parking attendant will first check your car for any damage and fill out the necessary paperwork. It can sometimes be the case that you have to wait for an available attendant, which is why we recommend arriving 3 hours prior to check-in. Meet & Greet gives you peace of mind and allows you to easily drive straight to Luton Airport.

International flights

If you have an international flight, Luton advises you to be present at the check-in desk 2 hours in advance, as the desks do not open more than 2 hours before flight departure. We therefore advise you to be present at the car park (Park & Ride) or at the departure hall (Meet & Greet) 3 hours in advance.
