Parking at the airport has its pros and cons, whether you’re flying from Perth or elsewhere in Australia. While driving is certainly the easiest way to get to your terminal, especially if you’re travelling as a family or with lots of luggage, it can be expensive.
Read on to find out the best, the closest and the cheapest options for parking at Perth Airport.
Perth Airport parking options
Perth Airport is split into two distinct areas, with T1 and T2 10km away from T3 and T4. Terminal 1 is the base for all international flights.
Parking at T1/T2 is split into short term options near each terminal and two long-term lots.
At T3/T4, you again have a short-term lot near the terminals, three long-term options, a regional parking lot a bit further away and the fast track option even closer to the terminal. You can also make use of the valet system which allows you to park right at the terminal, and hired help will take your car to a designated spot while you’re away.
For all long-term parking lots, a shuttle bus is available to get to the terminals.
