Heathrow GB
Challenge identifying which zone were meant to park in, ie from which station would be picked up from. Part of the problem was that one of the signs was not showing correctly.

A simple electronic board would be very effective.

Drove from Eastbourne without engine oil filler cap. We made it with only a trickle of oil left in the sump because most of it was splashed all over the engine. While we were away the guys at APH fixed it for a very modest amount and we had no problems getting home. Just like to offer a BIG thankyou to APH for a great service.

Bristol GB
This was the first time I have used this service, despite travelling to the airport almost every year. I will certainly be looking to use it again.

We now have a toddler and the whole service, including the helpful staff made things easy for us, on what is normally a long trip to the Caribbean and back.

Customers should not concern themselves about the advise given on the website regarding finding the car park using a sat nav, as we used ours and we got there without any problems.

Other such places had restrictions on car lengths, etc, which made APH a better choice and with great value for money, we decided not to get the coach. this time round.

My only constructive feedback would be that my car seemed to have needed quite a good wash when I got home. Perhaps there is a great deal of dust/dirt in the car park/surrounding area. It may be a suggestion that APH could therefore offer customers the option to have their car cleaned upon it's collection by outsourcing to a local car wash company?

Marden, Kent GB
The last bus I was on went through every zone when this was not required, the driver didn't ask if anyone wanted a particular zone but went all the way around the zones until someone rang the buzzer. And then had to go the long way round to get to the final zone, where my car was, which took quite a long time.
Still the best place to park long term at the South Terminal.

This is a very convenient service with the personnel that met us being very friendly and helpful. You really couldn't get much closer to the terminal than where they meet and greet you. The service is 24x7, all the instructions are easy to follow and it is simple to book online too. We've used this service a number of times now and we're very happy with it.

The airport opened for commercial flights in 1934 – when an air ticket to Paris with the fledgling British Airways would cost around £4 – including first class rail travel from London Victoria. The equivalent journey taken today would cost around £600. Gatwick Airport is owned by Global Infrastructure Partners, who also have a controlling interest in London City and Edinburgh airports.
