hamilton airport online car park booking system

Using the car park

You can simply turn up on the day of your departure or take advantage of the online booking system above. If you have booked your car park online, please ensure you carefully follow the instructions on your booking confirmation email.

If you have not booked your car park online there are two ways to pay:

  1. EITHER: collect a ticket upon entry to the car park, and when you return from your trip you take this ticket to the pay station, pay the amount requested, take back your ticket and use it to open the exit barrier.  The pay station is located in the centre of the car park, with two dispensing machines under cover. The pay stations take eftpos, debit/credit cards, notes and coins and do give change.
  2. OR, insert or tap your credit card (or VISA debit card) to the machine when you arrive at the car park barrier arm.  This will log your entry time.  You will NOT receive a ticket.  Upon exiting the car park insert or tap your credit card to the machine at the exit barrier.  No need to visit the pay station.  The exit barrier will read your credit card and debit the amount due. To obtain a receipt push the appropriate button on the barrier machine.  Please ensure you use the same card upon exit.
