Frequently asked questions about parking
Is it possible to cancel reservations?
You can cancel your reservation without any penalty at the latest four (4) hours before the reservation period begins. If you cancel your reservation period any later than that, you will be charged the full price.
How is parking price determined?
The parking fee is based on a daily rate. You always pay for the whole day, even though you don’t use the full day. Prices for parking spots that are reserved in advance may vary from one parking area to another based on supply.
Are there height restrictions in the parking area?
P1 Premium and P2 parking areas have a ground clearance of 2,10m. Parking area P3 has a ground clearance of 2.1m. Area P5 has a ground clearance of 2.0m. Parking area P4 is an outdoor parking area, and so has no height restrictions. There may be obstacles above a particular parking spot, however, such as an air conditioning conduit, that are below a height of 2.1/2.0m.
Can I reserve a particular parking space for myself? And how about disabled parking spaces?

Who is responsible for any possible damages?
When the customer has made the parking reservation or has paid for parking and carwash services, this constitutes a contract between Finavia and the customer. Finavia’s parking facilities are guarded, but parking is always done at the customer’s own risk. In relation to parking and washing services , Finavia is responsible for any immediate damage that it causes. However, unless otherwise required by binding legislation, Finavia will not be held liable for remote or indirect damage or damages that Finavia could not reasonably have been expected to anticipate.
I want to cancel my carwash reservation. Can this be done without at the same time cancelling the parking reservation?
Because the carwash services are always purchased in conjunction with parking services, the reservation is necessarily a single entity. In other words, it is not possible to cancel part of the reservation without cancelling the entire reservation. In such situations, the best thing to do is cancel the reservation (parking+carwash) and then do a new reservation for parking only.
I came to the airport in a different car than is indicated on the reservation; must I make a separate notification of this change?
No. If the vehicle has been changed, you will still be able to enter by showing the QR code you received.
Is it necessary to remove the antenna or roof racks before bringing the car to the carwash?
There is no need to remove the antenna or roof racks.
I couldn’t find the parking spots intended for cars going to the carwash, and so I parked elsewhere. Who do I inform of where my car is parked?
When leaving your keys, please inform the parking service desk of the location of your car.
Is it possible to reserve carwash services for caravans or vans? Can electric cars be parked in the parking areas also?
