Sydney Airport P7 Parking

I am travelling with 2 small kids soon and I think it would be easier just to park the car at the airport rather than have to cart luggage and car seats.

I would like to get some opinions from fellow travelers who have parked their cars at P7 .

Would you recommend it ?

Have you found it easy to find a spot in the non guaranteed car spaces ?

Any issues faced with parking you car there ?

Used P7 myself a few months back for much the same reason as you. We flew out to NZ on the first Monday morning of the last school holidays and had no issue finding a spot in the non reserved section.

Getting to the terminal was easy, car seats out (because we took them with us because we could and to save $100 in hire car costs in NZ) baggage onto a trolley which were plentiful in the carpark and at checkin within 5 mins of parking.

On arrival much the same. Far better and faster than getting a shuttle to cheaper places in Mascot.

With kids, P7 is best. Being reluctant to enrich the airport any more than is necessary I often park over at Mascot (plenty of unrestricted places) and take a taxi or other to T1.

Use it regularly and swear by it for convenience.

Should add book online and early and you save big time.

Yep. I use P7 a lot.

Big caveat though is the access roads into T1. They are often what cause people to miss their flights especially at peak times (mornings on weekends). Warning: Do not use the Marsh Street exit from the M5 or via the tunnel under the runway (General Holmes Drive). Rather, take a right off Southern Cross Drive and pass the Domestic Terminals using Qantas Drive.

We use it several times a year, just back from a month trip. That gets expensive, but still not as much as the dog kennels, our other big predeparture expense.
