Sydney Airport parking
As an airport with a huge amount of traffic running through it every year, SYD offers ample parking throughout its three terminals. It offers separate car parks for domestic and international passengers, as well as valet parking options at T1 and T2.
Short and mid-stay parking
All car parks serving domestic passengers are inside the Domestic Precinct close to the T2 and T3 Terminals. The P1, P2 and P3 car parks sit opposite both of these buildings.
The P1 and P2 car parks are best for short stays. You may leave your car in these short-term areas for as little as 0-30 minutes or as long as 3-24 hours. The airport charges a premium rate for each additional day your car stays in P1 and P2 beyond 24 hours.
Like P1 and P2, the P3 car park offers normal rates for stays between 0-30 minutes and 3-24 hours. However, the set charge for each additional day is much less than it would be in P1 and P2. For this reason, P3 the better option for domestic passengers who wish to leave their car at the airport for an extended period. It takes around eight minutes to walk from P3 to either domestic terminal.
The Blu Emu Car Park is the budget parking option for domestic passengers wishing to leave their cars at the airport for one day or more. A free shuttle bus takes you from The Blu Emu Car Park to the Domestic terminals in about 15 minutes.
You’ll find a valet service on Level 3 of P1 and P2. There is also a drive-up valet service on the departures roadway of Terminal 2. The standard valet services allow you to drive up, leave your car with an attendant and head straight to the check-in desk.
Virgin Australia offers a premium-class valet service outside its business lounge in Terminal 2, exclusive to its ‘Velocity Gold’ and 'Velocity Platinum’ customers.
International Car Parks
The large International car parks are just opposite Terminal 1 (T1). P7 is a multi-storey car park with clever lighting that makes it quick and easy to find your parking bay. Normal rates are charged in P7 for anywhere between 0-15 minutes and 3-24 hours and you will incur a set premium charge for each day your car sits in P7 beyond this 24-hour period. The first 15 minutes in P7 are free, which makes it great for picking up or dropping off.
P9 is the open-air car park for international passengers, which charges a set rate for stays of between three and 24 hours and a set fee for each additional day beyond 24 hours. P9 is typically more expensive than P7.
