If you're parking for more than 24 hours, you'll want one of Southend's long-stay on-site car parks. There are three to choose from, all within walking distance of the terminal.
Both SACP and Maple Manor Parking offer park and ride parking services to Southend airport. Each option is just a five-minute transfer via shuttle bus. Simply drive to the car park, find a space and then hop on the shuttle to the airport. For price, park and ride options are usually among the best value.
For the ultimate in convenience, you can't do much better than meet and greet - you don't even need to park the car yourself! Simply drop your vehicle off at the designated area, and the valet will take care of the rest. Both SACP and Maple Manor Parking provide this service at Southend airport.
Rest assured that all car parks provided by Holiday Extras are safe and secure. Expect CCTV, entry and exit barriers, and fencing.
The airport has one main terminal, which is easily reached from the on-site carparks.
As an airport that serves London, Southend has plenty of options when it comes to food, drink, shopping and entertainment too.
And if you want a bit of space, there's also the SKYLIFE lounge which comes with free WiFi, snacks, drinks and your choice of newspapers
If you're coming from outside of London, a hotel with parking might be the best option for you. It's often a very cost effective option, and you can avoid London and Essex traffic.
Southend has plenty of great options in the area, catering to different budgets. The Skylark is right by the airport, and takes less than five minutes by transfer. On a tight budget? The nearby Holiday Inn is just a two-minute transfer away.
Other 3-star Mystery Hotel is another option and it's only two minutes away.
