With many of us getting ready to set off on our summer holidays, many will flock to Prestwick Airport in Ayrshire to reach destinations across the globe.

However, we might get caught out by fines and fees for using services such as parking.

Knowing all the fees and being extra prepared can save us stress and money when we visit the airport.

This is why we have decided to answer some of the most commonly asked questions relating to the international airport.

Do I need to pay to drop-off at Prestwick Airport?

Prestwick Airport does charge a drop-off and pick-up fee to drivers with this service being located directly outside the terminal building in Car Park 1.

There is a charge of £3.50 for 60 minutes to use this service with this only being payable using card or contactless.

The charge for pick-ups and drop-offs rises depending on how long drivers stay with £7 being charged for 1-2 hour stays, £12 for 2-4 hours and £29 for 12-24 hours.

How much does it cost to park my car at Prestwick Airport for a week?

Long-term parking can be found in Car Park 2 where those travelling can leave their vehicle for a number of days.

Those wanting to use this service should book online via the Glasgow Prestwick Airport website.

To park for just one day, drivers will be charged £32 while those staying for two or three days would be charged £39 and £58 respectively.

For stays of up to a week, £92 would be charged with every day after that being charged at £7.

Those booking should do so at least two hours in advance of their stay.
