Our services explained

All our services at Stansted Airport offer great value for money and make travelling easier. We’re a real company with on-the-ground experts, so you know you’re in safe hands whichever option you decide is best for you.

Meet & Greet
With Meet & Greet you drive to Stansted Airport and are met by your own chauffeur. The chauffeur will then drive your car to a secure car park at the airport or located nearby, where it will stay for the duration of your trip. When you return from your trip, you simply call the car park as soon as possible after landing and a chauffeur will be waiting to hand your vehicle back to you once you have cleared the airport terminal.

At Stansted Airport, Purple Parking offers Meet & Greet services operated by:

Park and Ride
With Park & Ride it’s easy - simply drive yourself to your chosen car park located close to the airport. Once you have checked in, load your luggage on to the courtesy transfer bus, then sit back and relax whilst you are driven the short distance (3-8 minutes depending on the service you choose) to the airport terminal. On your return, the courtesy bus will take you straight back to the car park and your car which will be ready for you to collect.

Our Park and Ride services are operated by:

Park & Ride Premium
Also known as The Return Meet & Greet service (an economic combination of the Meet & Greet and Park & Ride services). Simply drive yourself to CSL Car Storage’s secure car park which is located about 8 miles from the airport. Once you have checked in, load your luggage on to the courtesy transfer bus, then sit back and relax whilst you are driven the short distance to the airport terminal. When you return, call the car park as soon as possible after landing and a chauffeur will be waiting to hand your vehicle back to you at the airport, once you have cleared the airport terminal.

Our Park & Ride Premium service is operated by:

Where to Check-in
The check-in area is on the ground floor of the terminal. To find your check-in desk, look for your flight number on the screens near the terminal entrance. Check-in zones A to K are signposted by illuminated yellow cubes.

Leisure and family facilities

We know the airport is about more than the flight – there’s the food, the shopping and also often the challenge of organising everyone, with lots of ages to cater for. At Purple Parking we’re here to help, so here’s a few of Stansted’s key services to keep you on track.

Family Amenities
There are family rooms and baby changing facilities available for departures and arrival. For older children, The Voyager Entertainment centre has a selection of video games. Boots supply baby essentials including nappies, formula milk and baby wipes, while most restaurants and cafes provide high chairs and children's menus.

Information desk
Situated in the international arrivals area, this 24-hour desk fields general airport enquiries, gives flight information and acts as a tourism desk for local information.

Shopping
There’s a good range of shopping available at Stansted from cosmetics (The Body Shop and Rituals) and electronics (Dixons Travel) to clothing (Next, Fat Face) and toys (Hamleys). There are lots of essentials, too, such as a currency exchange, a pharmacy and newsagents. Duty Free is available Monday, Thursday, Friday, Saturday and Sunday from 05.00 - 12.00 and 13.00 - 19.00 in arrivals (for tax-free liquor, tobacco, fragrance, skincare, confectionery, sunglasses and watches). There’s also a personal shopper service. The Stansted Airport website has an A-Z of shopping at Stansted, which covers ‘Books and Magazines’ and ‘Beauty and perfume’ to ‘children’ and ‘food and wine’, searching by location (before and after Security, Arrivals and Baggage Reclaim Hall).

Food & drink
From fast-food to finer dining, there’s something to cater for most tastes at the terminal. For coffee lovers there’s Costa Coffee and Starbucks, for a quick bite there’s Pret a Manger and for a traditional pub atmosphere there’s Wetherspoons. Get a nutritious hit with a fruity juice from Pip or savour Gourmet Hotdog or cuisine at the French influenced Café Balzar. Check the Eating A-Z to see all of the outlets available throughout different terminal locations.

Customer Reviews

LONG STAY

our whole experience was first class. From booking the parking, customer service when we arrived, the collection, and return (the driver kept everyone informed, of which areas he was stopping at} and even the customer service when we tried to leave, and had trouble with our ticket. We would most certainly use again. Thank you

Mr Goodbourn Tuesday 03 Nov 2015 at 21:02 (5 out of 5)


LONG STAY

Excellent service. No long wait for the courtesy bus either from the car park to the terminus or, on our return, back to the parking area. Couldn't have been easier. Would recommend the service.

PURPLE PARKING EMAIL DISCOUNT VALET

It went exceedingly well. I will use it again.

Prof Yaqoob Sunday 01 Nov 2015 at 10:05 (5 out of 5)


PURPLE PARKING EMAIL DISCOUNT VALET

We were late for departure and nobody was answering the phone no given ,so arrived at Stanstead not sure if we were going to be met . My only gripe but it was 5am in the morning, otherwise brilliant service. Thanks Paul Duffy.

Mr Duffy Sunday 01 Nov 2015 at 08:41 (5 out of 5)


PURPLE PARKING EMAIL DISCOUNT M&G

I thought I had booked the meet and greet at the terminal building; however I had misread the information and had actually booked the on site meet and greet car park and needed to walk into the terminal building with my disabled wife. My fault, should have looked more closely. The service was very good and would recommend to others for convenience.

The friend who recommended me to try the Meet and Greet service is a friend for life!So good.

Mrs Beevers Tuesday 27 Oct 2015 at 09:07 (4 out of 5)


OFFICIAL MEET AND GREET 10% OFF SAVER

I would definitely use the service again. It was very efficient, quick and no complaints. My booking number would not register with the machines but a quick trip to the office and all was put right. My only suggestion was that the friendliness of the stuff was lacking and a smile or two would not go amiss11

Mrs Cooke Sunday 01 Nov 2015 at 20:01 (5 out of 5)

Used Meet and Greet car park - so no chauffeur involvement.

Trouble free experience will use service again

Mr Phillips Wednesday 21 Oct 2015 at 10:42 (5 out of 5)


OFFICIAL MEET AND GREET

Chauffeur service not relevant at Stansted. You drive to Meet and Greet at the airport, park and walk less than 100m to hand your keys into the office and go on holiday, upon returning you pick up the keys from the office and walk less than 100m to your car. Simple process that works well even when busy. I will use again.

Mr Rawlinson Saturday 31 Oct 2015 at 16:44 (5 out of 5)


OFFICIAL MEET AND GREET

Very happy am already a repeat customer

Mr petrou Saturday 31 Oct 2015 at 10:43 (5 out of 5)


VALET PARKING

Great service, good value for money....so easy to book and park.

Mr zumeris Sunday 25 Oct 2015 at 16:57 (5 out of 5)


VALET PARKING

Felt that for the amount of money for valet it was not different from the meet and greet - still had to walk down to your valet reception and wait in a queue for keys!!!! Rather imagined that we would be met outside the terminal

Mrs Veale Wednesday 21 Oct 2015 at 08:18 (4 out of 5)


PURPLE PARKING

Overall great service other than the unhelpful lady via the intercom !

Miss woodruffe Tuesday 03 Nov 2015 at 13:53 (4 out of 5)


PURPLE PARKING

I can't fault it really. The bus came 5 minutes after we parked our car. When we returned, it was there in about 5 minutes again. It was really easy to find our car when we got back - you just need to note down the letter section your car is in and the bus-stop you hop on. Great service and will use again as it is pretty good value for money too.

Mr Higham Tuesday 03 Nov 2015 at 11:15 (5 out of 5)

everything worked well and efficiently, reduced the transfer time by a good margin. Thanks I'll be back. Rob Austin

CSL CAR STORAGE PARK AND RIDE

Excellent!Friendly staff and fast service.Booked just one day before the journey,so guess that is why had to pay a little bit more than normally.

Mr Zajancauskas Thursday 12 Nov 2015 at 22:09 (5 out of 5)


CSL CAR STORAGE MEET AND GREET

Was difficult to get through on the phone to the office when returning from holiday. It took 3 to 4 phone calls

Mr Church Friday 30 Oct 2015 at 21:18 (5 out of 5)


PINK ELEPHANT PARK AND RIDE

The only downside to using yourselves for parking was that we could not find you as our Sat Nav didn't recognise your postcode and we missed our flight. I did suggest upon finding you that maybe you have bigger and better signs next to the road as I am sure, like ourselves, others would find it hard to locate you, especially in the dark. The service was very good and very prompt, which we cannot fault at all.

Mrs Fowler Saturday 10 Oct 2015 at 10:12 (5 out of 5)


PINK ELEPHANT PARK AND RIDE

Very good service, couldn't believe how close it was to the airport, we called them when we were outside WH Smith and they were there in less than 10 mins would certainly use them again

Mrs Davis Thursday 08 Oct 2015 at 08:25 (5 out of 5)


I LOVE MEET AND GREET

Value for money parking with very good service. Definitely will use it again.

Mr Lucido Monday 02 Nov 2015 at 22:17 (5 out of 5)


I LOVE MEET AND GREET

An excellent service, removed all the stress of arriving and departing the airport. No queuing for a shuttle bus in the rain or searching for your car in the car park. Pleasant staff and a prompt service, we will definitely use again.

Mr Parman Monday 02 Nov 2015 at 08:07 (5 out of 5)


STANSTED OFF SITE PARKING

This was the first time we have used this long-term parking service for Stansted and even though we flew and returned early in the morning, the service was excellent. Even vent though we have a friend nearby, we will use this service again rather than disrupt their days.

Mr falvey Sunday 01 Nov 2015 at 09:30 (5 out of 5)


STANSTED OFF SITE PARKING

Good service

Mr Williams Saturday 31 Oct 2015 at 15:49 (4 out of 5)


PURPLE PARKING MEET AND GREET

It was a real treat to deal with a company that not only lived up to but surpassed it's own marketing and sales standards. Very efficient, friendly and punctual. I am only sorry I forgot to leave a tip! Will definitely use again, it takes out some of the hassle of modern-day travel.

Mr wadham Wednesday 04 Nov 2015 at 12:10 (5 out of 5)


PURPLE PARKING MEET AND GREET

At no point did my parking details letter tell me who the company parking my car was. I did not know who I was looking for - I thought it was Purple Parking. Lucky that I asked everyone I could see. So cuystomer service failed me on this info. Apart from that it was 5 star as recorded. If I hadnn't been able to locate my "man" it would have been 0 stars and never to be used again! I shall henceforth know that I need to know who is dealing with my car at the airport and shall enquire very early in the proceedings. I reckon this response probably warrants my parking for free - what do you think?
