I thought the cost of parking was high compared to, for example, Liverpool airport. I will take this into consideration when next deciding which airport to use.

Rotherham GB
used this parking service two or three times a year and this is the worse we have ever experienced. On arrival it took us 20 mins to get a parking space in car park 1 and only by following a lady that had just landed and going back to her car. Then to top it all on departing through the barrier on our way home we had to pay an extra £7 because i had changed a time for arrival back and it had not registered which on my e-mail from you it said that it had been amended. We now are going to get a taxi to the airport because your system is atrocious at the moment and we are considering another airport for our holidays.

The car registration number was recognised this time both on arrival and departure which was a lot easier than last time. This is a very full car park so trying to find a space takes time which needs to be taken into account. The car was fine on our return which was reassuring.
Just one thing, a ticket is issued when you enter the car park but we did not need it when we left which was a bit confusing! Minor point though.

Entrance to and exit from the car park was easy. It is within a couple of minutes steady walk to the depature terminal. The cost was cheaper than taxi fare with the added advantage that my car was there and waiting on my return, so no worries as to whether a taxi would turn up.
Have used this service previously and will certainly do so in the future.

Daventry GB
This is a very large and busy car park. Upon arrival at 4.30am we had to park a long way away from the terminal building as finding a space was difficult. Also we had to unload the cases before parking as the spaces allocated are very narrow. I'm slightly disabled and the whole process was quite daunting. It's much better to park further away from the terminal and catch a courtesy bus.

parked in long stay 1 at east midlands, on arrival couldn't find any room looked around for ages before finding one. Couldn't find any trolley's and when we returned couldn't find any where to park our trolley after we had off loaded our luggae in the car. Have decided that next time it would be better to book a room at the Thistle Hotel which includes parking and works out a little dearer but the convenience is worth it. We are both pensioners and the walk up from the bottom of your park is daunting especially if there are no trollies obvious in the bottom park.

Car park service was excellent but airport itself is still like a building site so walking to and from park is unnecessarily awkward!
