Calculating When to Arrive

You need to check-in at least 2 or 3 hours before departure (according to the guidelines of your airline). Please allow sufficient extra time for parking your car and your transfer to the terminal.  The transfer to Terminal 1 takes approx. 20 minutes and to Terminal 2 approx. 30 minutes. The shuttle service operates every 30 minutes around the clock and leaves on the full and half hour from the holiday parking to the terminals.

I have extra-large bags or bulky items with me – will this affect my use of the Holiday Parking shuttle buses?
Small bulky luggage is allowed in the shuttle bus anytime. In case of large bulky luggage, such as surfboards, we kindly ask you to drop it of at the departure terminal first and park your car at the Holiday Parking afterwards. If several guests with bulky luggage want to use the shuttle at the same time, it may be necessary to wait for the next shuttle (every 30 minutes) due to lack of space. Please allow sufficient time for the transfer with bulky luggage.

Are there seats for children on the Holiday Parking shuttle buses?
Yes, various child and booster seats are not necessary as in public transport.

Where can I get information on parking at airports in Germany and Austria?
On the website of Flughafen Parken GmbH you will find all offers of the airports Frankfurt, Munich, Vienna, Stuttgart, Hamburg, Hanover and Cologne-Bonn.
