Customer Reviews

EXPRESS PARKING

Cannot fault of car park we booked

Mr Gill Thursday 18 Feb 2016 at 14:33 (5 out of 5)


EXPRESS PARKING

I did not need a courtesy but as car par so near - so not applicable. You should include this in the rating options. My car number plate was not recognised but I was quickly given a ticket which allowed rapid exit. Thank you

Mr Finn Monday 11 Jan 2016 at 11:17 (5 out of 5)


EAST MIDLANDS LONG STAY CAR PARK 1

Didn't use a courtesy bus as walking distance to terminal. Number Plate Recognition on arrival and departure worked quickly and without problem.

Mr Adamson Sunday 20 Mar 2016 at 09:07 (5 out of 5)


EAST MIDLANDS SHORT STAY CAR PARK

Struggled to find a space but ideal for departures and arrivals, especially in bad weather.

I have only recently started to use this service and it is excellent. No hassle. The staff are really friendly and helpful on the courtesy bus would definitely recommend to my family and friends and use again.

EAST MIDLANDS JETPARKS 2

Experience very good until time to leave car park barrier would not open & i was'nt the only one not good when you just want to get home.

Mr abbey Thursday 26 May 2016 at 12:07 (4 out of 5)


EAST MIDLANDS JETPARKS 2

The system works well providing the cars in front of you have no problems getting in .At the time of entry to the car park 2 cars in fount had to use the intercom slowing entry, only 1 car can get in no passing.

Mr Robinson Wednesday 06 Apr 2016 at 20:14 (4 out of 5)


EAST MIDLANDS JETPARKS PLUS

The instructions for arrival didn't quite match up with reality - I was not expecting to take a ticket, so spent some time sitting waiting! Maybe your instructions could be clarified. At present they say something like "registration recognition might take 30 to 40 seconds so please be patient", there is no mention of a ticket being dispensed once that process was complete. Otherwise, it was all very smooth and I didn't have to wait for a bus in either direction.

Mrs Sandiford Thursday 01 Oct 2015 at 12:08 (5 out of 5)


EAST MIDLANDS JETPARKS PLUS

We found the parking and transportation to and from the airport superior to any other UK airport that we have used recently.

Mr Ackland Monday 28 Sep 2015 at 16:26 (5 out of 5)


EAST MIDLANDS MEET AND GREET

Brilliant car park and staff

Mrs Pitchley Friday 06 May 2016 at 19:54 (5 out of 5)


EAST MIDLANDS MEET AND GREET

The instructions of where to go where incorrect, stating to use the left hand lane, this resulted in me entering the short stay car park and costing me £2.50 to get out. The correct lane is the middle lane.

Mrs Leister Monday 14 Mar 2016 at 18:44 (4 out of 5)


EAST MIDLANDS LONG STAY CAR PARK 4

Only problem was that the car park was fairly full. We were directed by a sign to 'Spaces' only to be cast onto a no availability situation. We eventually found that there were several spaces at the other side of the park so maybe they need to get their act together more. There were a number of Disabled spaces available and my wife has a blue badge. As we needed the badge in the Canaries we were reluctant to use it here.Is there any way of utilising a space at the park without leaving the card on display? ie so that we can still take it with us.This is an immediate issue as we plan to use it again in June as you will be aware from our next booking

Mr Hall Friday 08 Apr 2016 at 14:13 (5 out of 5)


EAST MIDLANDS LONG STAY CAR PARK 4

The booking procedure was simple and easy to use with a very quick confirmation email coming through within minutes of booking the car park.. However, upon our arrival at East Midlands airport car park 4, our car registration number was not recognised on the ANPR system so we had to speak to customer services who then issued us with a ticket that enabled us to get out of the car park after our short break. Customer services confirmed our booking but it is unknown why we'd had to wait for a few minutes at the barrier at 5am (luckily there was no queue otherwise things would have been a bit awkward.
