Walking Distance

Mid Stay 1

Like the other car parks at East Midlands, Mid Stay 1 is right in the middle of price and distance. Itâ??s affordable and still just a 5-minute walk from the terminal.

Mid Stay 1 likes to keep your parking simple - simply drive up and park.

Mid Stay, short walk - you're only a 5-minute walk away from your terminal at Mid Stay 1. You just need to follow the signposts.

There are security patrols around the clock, so that you know your car will be well looked after at Mid Stay 1.

For added peace of mind, youâ??re leaving your car at an official airport car park, on the airport grounds.

As if that wasn't easy enough, the car park even lets you keep hold of your keys, for peace of mind while you're away, and a stress-free departure when you return.

Arrival Procedures

Just drive up to the entry barrier and wait for the machine to read your number plate. This can take up to a minute.

If nothing happens, press the button marked "assistance" so you can speak to a member of staff through the intercom.

Don't insert your credit or debit card into the barrier at any point or you will be charged again for your parking, and don't press the ticket button, as this will stop you being able to gain entry.

Then just walk to the terminal. It takes between 3 and 5 minutes.

Departure Procedures

Once you've walked back to your car, just drive to the exit barrier. The barrier will lift to let you out. This can take up to a minute. If it doesn't, press the button marked "assistance" and a member of staff will let you out. Don't insert your credit or debit card into the barrier at any point or you will be charged again for your parking.


Mid Stay 1 is protected by 24-hour CCTV, entry and exit barriers and a fence, and is lit at night. Security guards patrol the car park every hour, 24 hours a day. The car park has been awarded the Park Mark, a security award for car parks which is accredited by the police.

Transfer Information

The car park is within walking distance to the terminal.

Disabled Information

If you need Blue Badge parking we recommend Mid Stay 3 instead which has some spaces reserved for Blue Badge holders, subject to availability on arrival.

Streetview is a Google service and in most cases we are able to instantly show you the exact location you are looking for. However, sometimes some manual navigation will be required to, say for example find the car park entrance or the front of the hotel.

We had quite a lot of luggage so the courtesy bus was very useful even though we were not far from airport. Nice to be able to get straight to car on return without having to queue to pick up car keys.

For the price this is one of the best car parks we've used. Nice to be able to actually walk to terminal in a few minutes. Great, will recommend.

Great ,except the walk from the car to the airport with a trolley loaded with suitcases , would be better if it was a straight run , preferably on a smooth surface , not having to go across roads and up and down the hilly kerbs and winding paths

I arrived at planned. My car was recognised ok. Most lines were full.With no attendant available I had to try several lines before I could find a place.Very bad.Why no guide to available places. On return, I put my ticket in the machine and it asked for an extra ????75. My phone call to your office sorted it out,thank goodness. Some room for improvement.
