Possible considerations - NOT complaints
Need to be aware of distance from airport and allow plenty of time to transfer to airport - No problem for me, arrived day before flight and had hotel/park deal.

Also had difficulty locating - satnav unable to find- again I was not under any great time pressure, perhaps if on day of flight may have been more stressful.
May be useful to signpost from earlier roundabouts.

Service was excellent - courteous and helpful staff.... thank you

Hassle free parking. Buses to and from the airport are fairly regular. On the return journey, I found it easier to leave the wife, kids and suitcases at the airport, jump on the bus, get the car and bring it back to the airport to collect them all. It was far easier than trying to get suitcases and kids on to the bus.

First time we have used the Birmingham facility. Outward journey could have been better. Bus pulled up & driver said put bags in the trailer. No offer of assistance. Duly loaded the luggage & boarded the bus. After a few minutes we were informed that we had to switch to another vehicle. We unloaded our cases & then had to carry them onto the other coach ( no trailer) again without any offer of assistance.
Return journey was a different situation. Because one of our cases had been mislaid by the airport luggage handlers I rang to advise that we would be late for the scheduled pickup. I was thanked for letting them know & requested to ring as & when our missing case was located. This I did & a bus arrived later. The driver was very courteous & loaded & unloaded our luggage on & off the trailer.

When we took a shuttle bus on 19th Sep, we were asked to pay transport fee to the driver by himself at least three times although I rejected. He might be joking and I thought he was but I was asked several times without smile.

My daughter asked me why he asked only me to pay, then I couldn't explain for her. Is it because I was only one of people in the bus, who seemed and sounded non European clearly? I was not the first person taking the bus. I had not asked him the price because I knew all cost was included. Is there any reason?

This was the first day when we retuned from our holiday in Florida. What do you think?

We parked at Birmingham. Overall it worked ok, but the transfers could have been better organised. We were kept waiting for 10 mins on the way to the airport until the driver realised we were actually sitting in the bus. On the return we had to wait 15 mins for the bus, and when it arrived there were too many people to get on at the same time, resulting in a scrum and families being split up to wait for the next one. With better planning this could have been anticipated and more frequent buses arranged.

Easy to find and on our route from the East Midlands. Only a short wait for transfer, but the transfer is quite long and the bus back on arrival was much more comfortable and spacious than the mini-bus to departure. Great value for money though, so no real complaints.

The only criticism I could mention is that I had to stand up for the trip from the car park to the airport, it could be considered unsafe in light of the fact that the bus travels along the M42 for a short distance.

Nice car park however, locating free spaces can be a pain especially if one is running a little late. If there's a way of directing customers to free space that's be excellent..... but my guess is that we can't have it all.....
