Customer Satisfaction

With so many websites and booking agents all seemingly selling the same thing, it is often very difficult to know which one to choose for your airport parking and travel extras. Who can you trust? Where should you look for the best availability and prices, and who should you book with?

There are many great reasons why APH can be trusted with your booking, to make things simpler for you here's just a few…

Long Stay T4

"Easy to get to, lots of bus stops around the car park. It recognises your car registration so when you leave it opens the barrier for you so no messing with the ticket. Journey only 5 min to the terminal and the bus stop on the return is just by the terminal exit. Very easy to book online and this is the second time we have used this car park and always get the best deals through APH."
Mrs Kuchcinska, Avon, 9 Dec 2013

APH Birmingham

"Unfortunately we found our wing mirror mechanism had been damaged. We filed a report re this on Sunday 8th December and hope this issue can be resolved to our satisfaction. We already have a new booking in January. This is our favourite car park and as we usually fly from Birmingham to Faro several times a year you can see that we have been a loyal customer for a number of years."
Mr Kempster, Northamptonshire, 9 Dec 2013

APH Gatwick

"After booking with purple parking in March 2013, and having our Tom Tom and iPod stolen from our car, I am glad APH is so simple and safe to use, the staff are so friendly and do there job well, we will never book with purple parking again, they are a very poor company, not like APH who you can trust and I will always book with APH."
Mrs Wilkins, East Sussex, 9 Dec 2013

APH Gatwick Meet & Greet

"The APH Meet & Greet Service could not have been easier, from start to finish. The reason for using the service was because the coach pick up service is sometimes lengthy if you have just missed the bus but with the M&G, the car was there waiting for us. Great job."
Mr Hole, Essex, 9 Dec 2013

Purple Parking Long Stay

"First time we have flown from Heathrow Airport and was not looking forward to it,but we had no problems arriving or departing with Purple Parking. We landed from Newyork at 11-00am and we were home near Lakeside in Essex at 13-10pm."
Mr Harrington, Essex, 9 Dec 2013

APH Gatwick

"The drivers on both coaches helped load bags and unload them which made a great difference from our previous experience when we had to do it ourselves and it was chaotic. This time the service was much improved as it used to be."
Mr Cornelius, Kent, 9 Dec 2013

Long Stay South

"The only negative comment would be in respect of leaving the car park and heading for the M23. The signage is very poor. Fortunately the road was quiet and our last minute swerve to the Hilton didn't cause any major incident!"
Mr Lyall, Worcestershire, 9 Dec 2013

APH Manchester

"When we arrived back at Manchester Airport we phoned through to the office as requested, and proceeded to the bus stand. We had to wait about 15 minutes for the bus to arrive, but otherwise everything went very well for us."
Mrs Hinchcliffe, West Yorkshire, 9 Dec 2013

APH Gatwick

"The return pick up bus was so small that a considerable number of people were unable to board the bus. Given that return details are known and everyone had phoned ahead this was annoying and disappointing"
Mrs Hicks, Northamptonshire, 9 Dec 2013

APH Gatwick

"In addition whenever I have telephoned, usually because of a change in booking times or a query have always found staff to be helpful and efficient, even on one occasion to recommending somewhere to eat!"
Mrs Butterworth, Hertfordshire, 9 Dec 2013

APH Manchester

"Unfortunately when I got into my car after my holiday the drivers side carpet was soiled I can only presumethe driver inadvertantly stood in a muddy patch before taking my car to the collection point"
Mr Jones, Merseyside, 9 Dec 2013

Copthorne Hotel Effingham Gatwick

Mr Fairburn, Suffolk, 9 Dec 2013

East Midlands Long Stay 1

"The gate barrier didn't raise when I arrived at the airport but this was quickly put right over the intercom. Similarly when I came to leave the car park. Just for your information."
Mr Laws, Warwickshire, 9 Dec 2013

APH Gatwick

"Yes, it is close to the hotel (Copthorne Effingham)which is not expensive. We have used both for several years now in preference to a combination nearer to us in the East Midlands."
