Drop-off & Pick-up

For immediate free drop-off or pick-up, you can head to the parking bays at the front of the terminal. These parking bays are only available for immediate pick-up or drop-off. If you wait in these bays, you’ll be asked to move along by an employee of the Adelaide Airport. You can do a lap of this parking zone and re-enter once your passenger is ready for pickup. 

While in the drop-off & pick-up zone, the driver must stay with the vehicle at all times in line with airport security measures.

For longer drop-offs or pick-ups, see the ‘Short Stay Parking’ table above or book a Meet & Greet Terminal Parking slot for $10 for 2 hours.

Frequently Asked Questions

How much is airport parking at Adelaide Airport?

The total cost depends on where you park, how long you park for and what service you opt into. For comparison, parking for 15 minutes may cost $6, or up to $308 for a week. Seeking additional online discounts as well as using off-site airport parking can considerably bring down the cost for you.

How do I book? On the day or online?

Both – but for most places, you’ll get better deals and better parking options when booking online and in advance. When booking once you arrive, your options will be limited to what is available. This adds stress to your journey during busier times of the year.

Are all of Adelaide Airport’s car parks undercover?

No – there are covered and ‘open air’ (uncovered) car parks available. Typically there is an additional cost for booking covered car parks, but this depends on who you book with. 

Can I park my motorcycle at Adelaide Airport? 

Yes – motorcycle parking is available. Parking rates at the Adelaide Airport for motorbikes is the same as for cars, however, there is dedicated motorbike parking available for ease. If you opt to use Andrews Airport parking, you can expect a discount of up to 45% when parking your motorbike (see their website for more details). 

What if my flight is delayed or I need to extend my stay?

You can arrange to extend your parking with the company you selected. You’ll either pay the additional time incurred, which is charged at the lowest rate, a predetermined ‘overstay’ fee, or nothing at all if you’re on a fixed daily or multi-day price and return within the day. If you’re going away for long stays, it’s always good to be on the safe side and organise for your pick-up time to be a few hours after you’re meant to land. This will give you enough time to cover most small flight delays. 

Can I cancel my online booking and receive a refund?

This depends on who you book with. For the most part, you will be able to cancel your online booking and receive a refund. However, cancellation fees may apply. Be sure to read the cancellation and refund policy before you book.
