As of 3 August 2020, the undercover Terminal Car Park will become completely CASHLESS and will no longer hold cash within the onsite pay stations.


Adelaide Airport is striving to maintain a safe, healthy and seamless experience for all customers and travellers now and into the future:

  1. Hygiene: Removing the use of cash in our car parks means we significantly reduce the risk of spreading infection or illness.
  2. Save Time: By ceasing cash handling in the Terminal Car Park, we improve the overall parking experience by providing quick tap and go payment options and reducing queue waiting times at pay stations.
  3. Online Parking Bookings: Most travellers make the decision to pre-book parking online prior to arrival at the airport. This option remains in place to ensure you can achieve a contactless airport parking experience. Plus, you can save up to 30% off drive-up parking rates by booking in advance.


Book your airport parking

Car parking cannot be pre booked less than 1 hours in advance. Parking is available at the airport.

Departure date cannot be before arrival date


Alternatively, you may choose to enter the Terminal Car Park on your desired date and simply tap your card on entry and exit (no need to pull a ticket) and a receipt will be provided to you at the exit gate.

Adelaide Airport will continue to maintain the pay stations on Level 1 and 2, however, they will accept payment via credit card, debit card and digital wallets (Apple Pay, Google Pay etc) only.

For any questions or concerns regarding this change, feel free to email our Customer Service team: [email protected]
