Perth Airport Parking: How to Park Quickly and Easily

perth airport parking When visiting (or leaving) the beautiful city of Perth in Western Australia, the last thing you want to be thinking about is the hassle of parking. Fortunately, the airport offers many clear on-site parking for both long-term and short-term visitors. This article should help you to navigate the different options in terms of services and prices to get the deal that is perfect for you.

Perth Airport Parking Options- what are they? First of all, there are both long-term and short-term available at the international terminal (Terminal 1), the domestic terminals (Terminals 2 and 3), and the regional terminals. Business parking, or FASTtrack parking, is temporarily unavailable until an unspecified date in early 2010, so for the moment only short-term and long-term options are available. Regional parking, used for those traveling Skippers Aviation, National Jet Systems, Network Aviation Australia, and Helicopters Australia, is a different section of the airport and is located on Valentine Road, not on the usual facilities.

Short-term parking is ideal for those who require parking for between 30 minutes and 6 hours. 30 minutes is about 4 dollars, an hour is about $5.50, and 6 hours is about 12 dollars. Beyond six hours, the daily rate becomes 35 dollars, so it would be much cheaper at that point to switch to long-term parking for 16 dollars a day. It should be noted that people picking or dropping off passengers must attend their vehicles at all times, and attended vehicles can not stay in the pick-up/drop-off zone for more than two minutes, so people staying longer than two minutes will require short-term parking.

Long-term parking is ideal for anyone staying 24 hours or longer. The daily rate for the first 3 days is 16 dollars, after which it drops to 8 dollars a day. There is a current promotion for people staying exactly 7 days, which is a special rate of 79 dollars, so if you can plan your trip for exactly 7 days, parking will be slightly more affordable.

Another option is to use the only registered valet service that services Perth airport, SkyPark valet. They offer a parking service, either covered or uncovered, as well as many car washing services, and provide a free shuttle to any of the airport terminals from their facilities. The cost for a day’s parking is about 26 dollars, while a week is about 150 dollars, with adjustable rates for longer stays. One advantage of this service is while it is slightly more expensive in the short-term, they offer more comprehensive security and will also detail your car in your absence. A car exterior wash costs about 40 dollars, with deluxe services ranging up to 255 dollars.

Whether you choose airport parking or SkyPark valet, whether you are staying for an hour or a week, there are clearly a variety of options to choose from to fit your specific needs. After getting to the airport, you are in good hands – after reading this article, you should know what service you should choose in order to get the most for your money.
