    Parking tips

    Parking your car rental in Bournemouth Airport couldn’t be easier. The airport has 3 car parks. Car park 1 is around 1-3 minutes from the terminal and had wider parking bays but is only available when pre booked. Car park 2 is a short walk from the check in terminal and has great value parking, but wouldn’t recommend that spaces are pre booked so as to guarantee a space.
