Parking in the Port of Turku serves passengers

Parking in the Port of Turku is planned to serve the needs of passenger traffic. There are plenty of parking places in the vicinity of the terminals, which makes it easy to go on a trip. Those arriving by car should reserve enough time for arrival and parking to allow for an unhurried start of trip. Arriving the Port is easy, and it is recommended to check the entry routes in advance. Transfer to and from the terminal is taken into account in the parking charges. Daily parking charge covers 26 hours.
