How does valet parking work at Brisbane Airport?

Valet parking at Brisbane airport is quick and easy. With valet parking you don’t have to worry about finding a parking spot and parking your car. With this time saving option you drive to the departures lounge. Here a valet will park your car for you after a few routine checks. Your confirmation email contains a phone number for you to call 30 minutes prior to your arrival. This is to ensure that your transfer goes as smoothly as possible and you have no waiting time.

Continue your journey

After you have dropped off your vehicle a free shuttle bus will be available to take you to the airport terminal. The shuttle driver is happy to help you load and unload your luggage. From this point you can go to the check in desk and continue your journey.

On return

Once you have returned from your trip and have collected your luggage it is time to call your parking provider. You can find the number for your parking provider in your confirmation email. In the call you will discuss a meeting point where you will be picked up and taken to your car. Once you get to the parking lot your car will be ready for you at the departures lounge.

Advantages and disadvantages of valet parking

Valet parking has its advantages and disadvantages. We will discuss them shortly below.


Time: With valet parking you definitely save time. This is a great option for you when you want to have as little travel time as possible. 

Convenience: Valet parking is more convenient. Because you unpack your car at the departures lounge you are very close to the shuttle bus. It’s just a short walk with you luggage to the shuttle bus where a staff member is more than happy to help you with your bags.


Trust: Because your car is parked for you, you’ll have to trust the driver to park your car in a save spot. You will also have to leave your keys at the parking lot. At Parkos we don’t want you to worry, we only work with trusted parking lots. 

Costs: Valet parking is time saving and more convenient. Therefore the service will cost a little more than shuttle service.
