Very good service as usual, however would be better if transfer coaches used were larger when collecting from airport as there are always larger amounts of customers awaiting transfer.

Birmingham GB Regular traveler
Use car park 5 at Birmingham on a regular basis, the automatic number plate reader never works so I always end up getting a ticket then contacting staff on the way out to manually lift the barrier. 10 minute walk to the terminal which is ok as long as you don't have too many bags, there is supposed to be a bus but I can't remember the last time I saw it. Try to pick out something as a landmark for your return as its not very pleasant wandering the car park trying to locate your car when you get back - it's a big car park.
