Car parking at the Port of Dover

Safe, Secure and Convenient Parking at Dover Port While You're Away

For visitors connecting with a ferry crossing either as a foot passenger or by joining a coach party or cruise ship, car parking at Dover Port offers options to suit everyone's needs.

Save time and avoid any queues by booking your car parking quickly and easily with our secure, on-line car parking reservation system.

Please be advised our cruise car parks will be operating with reduced capacity this year, therefore all parking will be outside and pre-booking is essential to guarantee a space. You may be located in a car park outside of the cruise terminal area, but still within the Boards estate, at the Western Docks. A mini-bus service will be provided to transport Port passengers to the Cruise Terminals.

Terms & Conditions

Our terms & conditions apply to all car parking areas within the Port. Please see our Car Parking Terms & Conditions [PDF] and Model of Cancellation Notice [PDF]. Additionally, our terms & conditions apply to all Port Staff Car Parking Zones [PDF].

Customers wishing to make a reservation for the MSCP at the Eastern Docks are advised to contact the Port of Dover Car Parking Reservation Team on 0844 504 1771 between 0830 hrs and 1700hrs Monday to Thursday and 0830 hrs and 1600 hrs on Friday.  Please note the office is closed on Bank Holidays.

Important: Dover Cruise Port will not be able to guarantee car parking spaces during peak months (July, August & September) to customers who have not pre-booked. We therefore recommend you book your cruise car parking space as early as you can to avoid disappointment. At certain times during peak periods, alternative car parking on other Dover Harbour Board sites will be available to passengers in addition to the Cruise Terminal parking.
