Customer comments

APH Manchester Meet & Greet

"Found it much easier to drive to the car park and then walk across to the terminal as in previuos years. Getting to the second level on retun was difficult"
Mr Cave, Tyne And Wear, 15 Dec 2013

APH Gatwick

"On return, we were not long in collecting our luggage and clearing customs, but were dismayed to find the APH coach leaving with only 2 passengers just as we approached the bus stop."
Mr Williamson, Hampshire, 14 Dec 2013

Swift Meet & Greet

"Yes. As my flight was cancelled and thus could only be completed some 20 hours later, I incurred a £10 surcharge. I asked for a receipt for this payment, but this has still not been received."
Mr Gorrod, Leicestershire, 13 Dec 2013

APH Gatwick

"The downside with parking my car was the state in which it was retuned with bird droppings on a lot of the car. As these can eat into the paint work I was not best pleased."

Ms Colley, Devon, 11 Dec 2013

East Midlands Long Stay 1

"I have used this carpark a few times now and the ANPR never works - I always have to press the button. Usually the ticket asks for extra payment and I have to tell them it was prebooked on the way out - it is not a big deal and doesn't put me off, but it clearly doesn't work properly. It is also often hard to find a space and people park all over the place making driving round quite tricky sometimes."
Dr May, Nottinghamshire, 10 Dec 2013

APH Birmingham

"We had the grumpiest of drivers on the service bus on the way back did not help anyone with their luggage including the old couple that got on the bus. Also there was loose change in my car which i keep for parking approximately £3.00 and it was gone when i had the car back. I hope you post negative as well has positive remarks"
Mr Morris, 10 Dec 2013

APH Birmingham

"This car park is an excellent choice for people travelling from the North. It is easty to find and the difficult driving and navigation to and from the airport is travelled in the transfer bus. The bus drivers know which is the best way to go at any particular time of day and take all the stress away at rush hour times."
Mr Gilbert, Derbyshire, 10 Dec 2013

APH Gatwick

"On this occasion, the space I actually collected my car from, required slight manoevering to leave and I had to unfold my passenger side mirror as it had been parked close to a fence. The car was also covered with leaves owing to its location. That aside does not detract from the otherwise excellent service provided."
Mr Carter, Wiltshire, 10 Dec 2013
