I always use Airparks at Garrets Green when flying from B'Ham
booking is easy over the net very straightforward and on arrival the booking in simple buses to the airport run every 20 mins or so 24/7 and prices are considerably cheaper than on the Airport.
All in all excellent
A few suprises along the way, booked hotel and car parking at Gatwick (premier inn), got to the hotel and there is a 10 extra charge in the small print for parking at the hotel. Its on my paper work too, i just didnt notice it. Why would I pay 2 of 3 things online and want to pay a final 10 gbp extra when I arrive ?
Exiting the carpark was tricky, only 2 guys but I was served quickly, some problems with the bookings not matching up perfectly on the system or something. I smiled and nodded and was on my way in 10 minutes.
Got to the carpark far too early and the buses weren't yet running because it was too early even for any flights that day.
However, i was still allowed to park for no extra charge and staff took me alone to the airport in a car.
Great service. :-)
We have been using Airparks for years with no problems however this year you booked us in at the Manchester jetparks 3 part of the Airparks group. What a fiasco. Booking was fine and we were told the barrier would let us in using numberplate recognition. It did not nor did it let in another customer at the second barrier next to us. A screen said scan barcode on printout. we tried that did'nt work either. We pressed the help button and waited, and waited. Eventually someone let us in. One week later we were in our car, trying to drive home, sat at the barrier, waiting, and waiting, and waiting. You guessed it Nothing worked again.11 mins. we sat pressing the help button......
This company was great to use, first time users and had read soooo many complaints about having to wait forever for the bus, yet we waited about 10 minutes if that, the only thing I WOULD say is this company needs a helper with cases, many of the people on my bus was over 60 i know they are on holiday and have a suitcase but they use trollies to move these, the bus driver does not help the elderly get there cases on the bus which I think if they had someone do this or even the driver this would make this a whole lot more easier for the elderly, me and my friend was loading cases for older people as they seem to struggle getting there cases on the top shelf of the bus apart from this top service would use again!!!!!!!!!!!!!
Nearly everything about Airparks at Gatwick was great, however, not everything.
We found the directions to the car park difficult to follow. Also, collecting the car again seemed a bit chaotic, with people trying to drop off keys mingled in with a full bus load of people collecting keys - and only two staff. The queue seemed very long and took for ever to move.
On a plus side, arrival and check-in were very smooth and the transfers to and from the airport were comfortable and well timed.
the parking was made easy due to the computerisation of the paperwork from the self service book in and key drop.
arriving back at midnight ,the key return was automatic via computer.. Key tag indicating exact lane where car was parked very close by.
The bus to airport was good our only complaint was distance
from drop off point to terminal and the £2 trolly charge
Parking at Clickpark for the second time was as easy as the first, its easy to find, the staff process very little paperwork so its very quick. My car was ready for me outside the office on return, no carrying cases to a car park.
If I have to critisize its that they will only pick up from Terminals 4 & 5, however the train link across Heathrow is now excellent, providing you don't have too much luggage.
we found the parking site easily with the help of our sat nav but the directions were also spot on.
The staff were very obliging and helpful we were at terminal 4 within 10 minutes of arriving at the park, we were given precise instructions for our return.
we phoned the number given and the minibus was there to pick us up in 5 minutes, the car was waiting near the gate as was the man with our car keys and asked if we needed directions.
We were very pleased with airparks as with the price for 3 weeks parking.
We shall use them again.
Airparks is easy to use - just park your car in the drive, scan your booking barcode and drop your key in a box. Then you get a bus to the airport - and one waiting for you when you land back home. Just scan your barcode again back at the Airparks site to get your key back from the machine. Simple, easy, and cheap to boot.
The whole process of using Airparks was easy and convienent from start to finish. Airparks came up cheapest on a price comparrison site, so I was slightly aprehensive but booked anyway. The online booking itself was straightforward and secure. On the day of my flight the directions were easy to follow, and the car drop off and bus to airport service very straightforward. The same is true of the late night return, with a prompt bus service and simple, fast car collection. I recommend highly.
Easy to find and easy to park. Good quick service without the hassle of booking in. I felt it was one thing we didn't have to worry about.
We would recommend this way of parking. Clearly signposted you just park up leave your car. Write on your ticket where you have parked it and what bus stop you are at. Bus comes along very quickly picks you up and then you are set for your holiday. Coming home get the bus for long stay parking. Get off at your original bus stop and theres your car exactly where you left it. No fuss so straight forward.
Everything was as you would want, no problems. However, when collecting the car it was in the short stay car park and not in the valet parking area. This wasn't a problem at eleven on a Friday night but I have experienced problems before when trying to get out of the car park at peak times
we arrived cold and tired at Aberdeen and had to wait at least 20 minutes for transport. I think they waited for the second flight to make it worth their while as we were the only ones off the first flight. The driver was as gloomy as the weather. May try the long term car park in future.
