I have used your car parks for a long time because of the value for money. I also have mobility problems and used to park down by the perimeter fence in the car park but the spaces nearer to the airport keep getting pushed back for company use and now I find you have split the car park in two making it even further to walk. yes you have a shuttle bus but I was almost back to my car before I saw it. if you push the public car park spaces any further back we will be in Coventry

Although it was specified that the car plate will recognized and the gate open. This was not the case, I had to call the assistance who did the job remotely. It happened both ways.
This needs to be sorted out.

When my car was returned to me the battery was completely discharged and had to be replaced (at my expense) the following day. A senior staff member told me that they had to use jump leads to start it. It had been in APH care for just 7 days. I have left the vehicle at home for periods of 2 - 3 weeks and never encountered any battery problem - the car starting perfectly normally on my return. I can't help thinking that, if the system had allowed me to park the car myself instead of having to leave the keys with the (very young) APH driver, this would almost certainly not have happened.

I was disappointed when we left the airport car parking to be charged a additional fee of £32.50 as we were 4 minutes later than expected due to the aeroplane being delayed slightly. I am currently trying to contact the refund team regarding this excessive charge.

Its hopeless! As usual the numberplate recognition at BHX car park 5 did not work at the exit point...further it took ages for an assistant to answer, it was throwing it down with rain and my arm got soaking wet through pressing the button trying to get assistance. This is an ongoing problem and you know about it but are so complacent you cant be bothered to sort it out. So why bother sending out silly questionnaires?

Verbally and physically abused by driver at 4.30 am in front of my 12 year old son. Apparently is only an 'agency driver'. Still represenative of APH.

Poor slow pick up and drop off service, so wouldn't use again irrelevant of impending Police action

I am aware that the suitcases are heavy however I was not happy seeing my luggage been thrown into the trolley . I have brand new expensive cases and was not keen on how they were manhandled . Also despite being at the front of the queue returning from airport I just about got a space on the bus as the driver didn't care who jumped on first .
