Free Parking near Luton Airport

Parking for free whilst you are away on holiday is not the most recommended method, especially if you are out of the country for a long period of time.

We recommend using a free parking spot if you are flying on a domestic flight and will only be leaving your car for a maximum of 24 hours, although there are no restrictions for our free parking spots. 

We don’t recommend parking on residential streets as this can become a struggle for locals, so for free parking near Luton Airport, we’d suggest Eagle Centre in Luton, (Sedgwick Road), an industrial estate with plenty of parking.

From here, you can jump on the train at Leagrave Station which is around 15 minute walk, easily doable with a suitcase on wheels.

The train from Leagrave to Luton Airport takes around 45 minutes.
