Travelling to and from an airport often involves the decision of where to leave your car. Newcastle Airport has several parking options and I have used most of them at one time or another.
However I now always go back to Callerton Parking. They are just such lovely friendly and helpful people. You can book by phone or on the internet. You can pay in advance or pay cash on the day when you leave your car so no problem if you have to cancel. Their rates are very competitive and they will match any lower price you can find!

Callerton is easy to find. From the A1 take the A696 towards the airport then take the second slip road on the left signposted Woolsington & Throckley. At the top turn right straight over the mini roundabout and down over the Metro lines. Callerton Parking is the first entrance on the left hand side.

As soon as you drive up someone is there to deal with all your luggage. Then you hand in your keys and pay, hop into the mini bus and off you go! The return is also easy peasy. As soon as you clear customs give them a ring (I keep their number in my phone) and the mini bus will be waiting. Their bus stop is in a very convenient spot so you don’t have far to go. Again they deal with all your luggage and help you get it into your car if you want. Your car is left just near the entrance ready for you to jump into and on frosty nights the windscreen will have been cleared and the engine heated up. Lovely!

Now if you need to have everything very pristine Callerton may not be for you as their premises, office and mini buses are not in the first flush of youth. However for value for money and courteous treatment they cannot be beaten. They also have a wonderful ‘greeter’ in the form of a huge dog. He is lovely but I’m also sure he could protect the staff if needs be!

The phone numbers and web site address are as follows:
