There are two Prestwick airport parking lots to choose from. “Watson’s Ayr Park” is an off-airport lot, but the lot features a transfer shuttle service to get you to and from the terminal. “Prestwick Car Park 7” is an on-airport lot, but this one does not have a shuttle service – it is only a short walk from the lot to the terminal.
Stop rushing around on travel days to get out the door early enough so that there is time to drive in aimless circles through the airport parking lot, hoping you will find that one last available space on a busy holiday weekend. Instead, book a spot in advance with Glasgow Prestwick airport parking and ease into your travel day. Booking in advance means you can just drive up to the lot at the appointed time, drop off your car and be on your way to the terminal in no time. It is a great way to eliminate some of the stress that comes with travel – and what is more, by reserving ahead you can save money over the drive-in rate at the lot.
