Very friendly and helpful staff. The arrival process is efficient but guidance to the car on collection could be made clearer. Are all the bays numbered?

On arrival at the check in to leave my car the lady wore a friendly smile and was helpful. When we came back from our trip to Newcastle however I had to stand on the bus as there wasn't enough seating. The bus driver was quite sullen when I asked for help to load my case in the caged area on the bus and never even spoke to me. It was a large case and weighed the full 20k and I am not as strong as I used to be because I am 68. This is the first time this has happened so I hope it doesn't occur again. I was a little surprised at the attitude because it has always been a pleasant experience with your company who often have quite sociable drivers. By the way, when I phoned your office to alert you of our return nobody answered the phone and I rang several times.

Overall good value for money spent, only annoying negative was the fact that the radio channels had been changed when l picked up the car.

Mind you l would have been elated if l came back to a fully valeted car, set of four new tyres, full tank of diesel and told that Elle Mcpherson was at home waiting for me......... but alas this is the real world :(

Has to be the easiest transaction of parking a car. From arrival through to coming back, everything was effortless! The staff seem to know and understand their customers needs and are very very helpful. At first I was skeptical about the kind of service I would get because of the price. But I have to say I have paid more and never got such quality service! I would obviously use APH again and I I have already told everyone I know!!! 5stars

I had booked at the south terminal some time ago. At short notice I was told the flight was from the north terminal. I was surprised to be charged so much more when I cancelled the South terminal booking and made a new one for the north. It would have saved me about £20 tokeep the s terminal booking and use the train link. Should the circumstance occur again I will do so. Is the north terminal always more expensive?

This is not the first time I have had problems returning to APH from the Gatwick terminals. As before I did all that I was instructed. I phoned through to say I had arrived, went to the correct bus stop only to be met by at least 40 people already waiting for a bus. It was chaos because the bus stops are shared with Purple Parking - there is no clear indication of where to queue for APH and where the queue start and ends. There is no segregation of those waiting for APH and those waiting for Purple Parking. Two Purple Parking buses arrived whilst we were waiting but by the time everyone had moved around to let people on the buses all semblance of who was first in the queue for APH was completely lost. We waited a good fifteen minutes and then when the bus arrived the driver was clearly overwhelmed with the numbers of people and the amount of luggage that needed to be loaded. I felt really sorry for him. We actually left the stop with some people standing ( I didn't think you were allowed to stand in a bus on the motorway!) and others having to wait for the next bus. If we all phoned to say we had arrived and then we all go to the correct bus stop as instructed, why is it that you cannot appreciate/plan for the demand and respond so that there are sufficient buses or a bus of appropriate size to pick up the number of people you know are waiting? I am just unable to understand that - and if you are not able to respond quickly - then what is the point of us phoning through? Your service has become remarkably poorer since the new buses which require people to take their luggage inside have been introduced. Before, the cases went in the side of the bus, the passengers went inside the bus. At the terminal or at APH it was all very organised with the luggage being unloaded and people simply selecting their cases having exited the bus. Now it is a complete bun-fight with people unable to exit the bus because of others trying to get their luggage off, and/or having to struggle with getting luggage off of high shelves and negotiate around luggage and people who are getting off at a different terminal. Its terrible. The buses are simply not big enough and there is too much for the driver to cope with to make it work easily. We had taken only 2 hours to fly from Croatia in relative comfort and then had to endure a very uncomfortable and stressful overall journey of some 40 minutes in all just to get a bus back to APH. Goodness knows how long it would have taken us if we had not been able to get onto the first bus! We have used APH many times but this is not the first time the return journey to APH has blighted an otherwise good holiday experience - and as I said above, it has certainly got worse since the introduction of the smaller 'everyone and everything inside' buses. I will certainly not be looking to use APH again.

We have been using APH's off-airport site at Copthorne for nearly thirty years, but because we recently moved house and now approach Gatwick from the M23 south, and no longer from the A264 east, we decided it would be more convenient to save time and mileage by booking meet-and-greet and driving directly to the airport. I am so glad we did. It is a superb service and the small extra cost is far outweighed by the convenience of driving straight into the multi-storey car park, handing over the keys, and walking across to the terminal. If it's raining you don't even need to step outside.. it's all under cover. The drivers are friendly and professional and you can head for your flight feeling confident that your car will be well taken care of. We have already booked meet-and-greet for our next flight and will continue to do so from now on. Highly recommended.

Natasha

Changed drop off location from north to south terminal online via website 36 hours before travelling. Driving alone so could not call 10 minutes before arrival, and ended up arriving 20 mins early. Called service on arrival at Gatwick and was told it would be 15-20 mins before anyone could be with me. Reconfirmed that I was at the south terminal.

20 minutes later, no pick up, so I called to try and find out where the driver was. Meet and greet rep was incredibly rude, then put the phone down on me. 10 minutes later I had a call from the pick up driver, who had been sent to the wrong terminal and (unsurprisingly) couldn't find me.

In the end, I had to wait 35 minutes before someone came to collect my car (quarter of an hour after the pre-arranged pick up time), making me late for meeting colleagues at the airport.

This service offers no follow-through if details are changed, even with a good deal of advance notice. Nor is there any flexibility if you are early, and customer contact is rude and abrasive.

I would just like to add an observation regarding price. When we were first considering a weekend away, which was two months in advance, I looked at prices for parking just out of interest. When we had finalised the trip and I then looked at booking the parking with just two weeks to go, the price had doubled from just £23 to £46.

The buses are not very comfortable and noisy. The service is frequent and well run. We have used this half a dozen times or so and find it very cost effective and works better than leaving your car in an open car park where anyone can scrape it.
