Why choose Jetparks 1

Official East Midlands Airport Meet & Greet Parking

JetParks 1 is fast and simple to use, too. On arrival your numberplate will be automatically read and your booking confirmed - you will then be issued a ticket (which you’ll need when you return). This procedure may take up to one minute. Please note - do not press the button to request a ticket, as this will disable the automatic numberplate recognition service. Once in, find a parking space, unload your bags and head for the shuttle bus and take the eight-minute trip to the terminal. Blue badge holders can park in the designated parking bays and staff will assist on request.

Returning is just as straightforward. Simply make the short journey back to JetParks 1, drive to the exit barrier, enter your ticket and continue your journey home. Any problems, just use the 24-hour assistance button.

Safety - for you and your car - is paramount, which is why JetParks 1 is a holder of the Park Mark® Safer Parking Award holder, along with features such as 24-hour CCTV 24-hour, security fencing, security patrols and lighting for added peace of mind.

I found it easy to check in and was fortunate to find a parking bay close to the bus stop. As my wife is a wheelchair user I thought it would be better if a few disabled spaces were provided close to the bus stops. It would be difficult for you to verify that cars in those bays were entitled as I always take the blue badge away for use with the hire car at our destination so others would do the same.

I have given a slightly lower score to the transfer service than perhaps I would normally do as on return to the airport we had to wait 45 minutes for a bus to arrive at the terminal to take us back to the car. And when it arrived it said Staff Only on the destination. We had to ask the driver if it really was for staff only. He obviously did not realise what it said.

I wouldn't use anyone else. Get a good discount even though I always book late. Would appreciate a better one though as I use the car part for 2-3 weeks of the month and because I book my flights late I don't get the best discount. Any chance.....?

Finding the car park initially was quite hard work - we accidentally went through the drop off point bit and had to pay to get out, then went to the wrong car park and tried to enter before we realised that Jet parks 1 is quite a way from the departures area. I think the literature given to the customer when they book could have been clearer on this as the postcode did not get you to exactly the right place. Also the number you call for assistance is a high rate number which isn't very helpful! But despite all that we did eventually figure it out without missing our flight and the car was secure for the week.

Like being able o keep my car keys.
Car park surface needs attention. Spaces were very tight, high risk of damage from other users who might not be as careful when opening doors.
Was relieved to find my new car without any bumps and scrapes, covered in bird poo though!

When we arrived to the parking we were waiting at the bus stop 1 and the driver did not stop to pick us up and just drove off although we had put our hand out for him to stop. We then contacted the help point and told them what had happened and another bus arrived shortly, but we were very upset to have been treated in this manner.

Very unhelpful transfer bus park ok in daylight,but after dark .....dreadful !...only 1 bus shelter lit up & overhead lighting was non existent....The car park is very difficult to walk on when you can see ,but in the pitch-black on October 23/24 we were lucky to find our car and get there without broken ankles......Can't give it any good points but will be using JET PARKS PLUS next time for a few £s extra ! ......
