Air Travel Parking vs. Park on King

The Best Budget Parking for Sydney Airport

If you’re a savvy traveler, you’ll already know that the smartest option when flying from Sydney Airport is to park your car at one of the off-site car parking facilities rather than the eye wateringly expensive on-site facility. But if you’re searching for affordable options for Sydney Airport parking, you might find yourself overwhelmed by the selection of facilities available. With so many parking options vying for your business, it can be difficult to determine which facility is going to give you the best value for money, service and facilities all under one roof. If you’re tossing up between booking with Air Travel Parking and Park on King, we’ve done the hard work for you, comparing the two facilities for convenience, flexibility, facilities, reviews and more.

Shuttle Convenience

If you’re parking off-site, the shuttle service provided by your car parking facility is extremely important. A late or slow shuttle can cause stress and anxiety and even in some cases, a missed flight. Air Travel Parking and Park on King both offer a free shuttle to the terminals, but which is more likely to get you there on time, every time?

Air Travel Parking: The facility has just one shuttle bus available to transport all customers to and from domestic and international terminals. The facility is located 2.8kms (8 minutes) from the domestic terminal and 2.4kms (7 minutes) from the international terminal. The Air Travel Parking shuttle doesn’t have a dedicated pick-up area, but picks passengers up at the public Express pick up area.

 

Park on King: Six free, on-demand shuttles to domestic and international terminals. The facility is located 1.1km (4 minutes) from the domestic terminal and just 650m (3 minutes) from the international terminal. The Park on King shuttle picks up from a dedicated pick-up point at Bay 5, just a1-minute walk from the terminal.

The verdict: Park on King has six shuttles available to pick you up as soon as you need to go to the airport, as opposed to only one, so you’re much less likely to be kept waiting for your shuttle. What’s more, Park on King is located much closer to both airport terminals so the ride will be faster and the risk of getting held up in bad traffic is much lower. On the way back, pick-up is also smoother and faster with Park on King’s dedicated pick-up point at Bay 5.

Transparency

We all want to feel that we are choosing a company we can trust, especially when we are leaving them responsible for one of our most valuable assets – our car. But we all know some companies seem to bend the truth (or even outright misrepresent themselves), so let’s dig a little deeper into the difference between Air Travel Parking and Park on King.

Air Travel Parking: Their website clearly states they have a 14-seat minibus, 24-seat bus, and 54-seat coach, but in reality, they only have one standard shuttle.

Park on King: All our claims can be backed up – if we claim to offer a service or facility, ask to see evidence and we’ll happily show you! We don’t claim to have a 54-seat coach (we don’t need one), but instead we have six, on-demand airport shuttles which we have found to be the most efficient and convenient way to get our customers to the terminals on time, every time.

The verdict: Park on King is an honest and transparent company – what you see is what you get.

Flexibility

We all know that managing the logistics around a trip can be tricky, so booking flexibility and generous opening hours are key features for any travel booking you’re making. So how flexible and convenient are Park on King and Air Travel Parking?

Air Travel Parking: Open from 5am to 11pm. No refund or credit offered if booking is cancelled within 24 hours.

Park on King:  Open from 4.30am to 11pm. 100% credit voucher for cancellations within 24 hours of a booking.

The verdict: Park on King opens earlier, making it a more convenient choice for early morning flights. It also has a more flexible cancellation policy so you don’t have to stress if your travel plans change at the last minute.

Facilities

When you’re researching the best carpark, it’s easy to focus only on cost, distance from the airport and reviews. But while these are all useful factors to considerwhen making your decision, it’s also worth considering some of the finer details about how the car park operates and the facilities it has available, as this could make the difference between a fantastic, seamless experience and an irritating one.

Air Travel Parking: This is a basic facility that offers car parking spaces and a shuttle only. It’s a basic, ground-level carpark. They keep your car keys with them while you travel.

Park on King: Offers car rental, electric vehicle charging stations, kids activity packs and hand car wash in addition to standard parking services, as well as a dedicated loyalty program so repeat customers can save money on airport parking. The facility has seven levels, six of which are undercover (top level is rooftop parking).You can enter the parking facility seamlessly due to license plate recognition technology and you can take your keys with you, offering peace of mind. Park on King even has an option to order an organic fruit and vegetable box which will be waiting for you on your return, saving you from doing a grocery shop on the way home.

The verdict: Park on King has more useful facilities available to customers and is a better equipped, larger facility.

Reviews

There’s simply no better way to determine which business is likely to leave you with a smile on your face than reading real customer reviews. So, which customers are the happiest?

Air Travel Parking: Receives 2.4 stars on Google based on 67 reviews.

Park on King: Receives 4.8 stars on Google based on 804 reviews.

The verdict: Park on King has received far more reviews and has a rating twice as high as Air Travel Parking. 

THE FINAL VERDICT: Park on King offers more flexibility, more facilities and a faster and more convenient shuttle journey to and from the airport than Air Travel Parking and this is reflected in Park on King’s very high Google rating based on almost 1,000 real customer reviews. Click here to get your free online quote for Sydney Airport’s best budget parking.

I've parked my car at Park on King several times now. I've never had any issues at all, friendly and efficient service, easy to find parking spaces on allocated levels, and have never had an issue being a few days late picking up. I have a couple of future bookings already!

Have been a customer on Park on King about 4 times now. Always impressed by their service and going above and beyond to make you feel like you're in safe hands. Recently had drivers Michael and Andrew (I think) and both could not be faulted. Both were lovely people and you could tell really loved their jobs. I will continue to recommend you to friends! Thank you

This is the first time I used the services of any airport parking and I am glad I used the services of Park on King. I think they have the cheapest rates and the shuttle pick up and drop is also great. Parking spot was neat and clean and the they are very professional. I am going to use this parking for all my domestic and international travels going forward.

I've used Park on King just once - on a recent trip to the UK. It's very close to the airport, the shuttle service worked beautifully, and it was reasonably priced. However, above all I was impressed by the friendliness of every employee I met working there. Everyone appeared relaxed and happy, and was only too willing to assist me. This business deserves our support, and I highly recommend it.

Close to airport. 5 mins to Domestic. Around 10min-15min to International. Reasonable price. Get you car washed while it's there. The price including car wash is almost equivalent to airport parking on its own. The only downside is you have to get a shuttle to and from the airport.
