the return journey was awful. There was a scrum to get onto the bus and nearly a fight. No organisation or queuing system at the airport. This is dangerous and I am surprised that the airport has not seen fit to remedy this on behalf of Summer Special parking. On return the queue was more orderly but the staff had difficulty in locating keys and ended up tipping them out onto the floor and searching via a lucky dip style.

Worst service ever experienced. Bus broke down. No replacement service. Didn't tell us it broke down. Waited an hour. Had to walk to terminal on a busy road with young children no footpaths. On way back barriers broke down and bus couldn't get in. Computers went down and they couldn't find the keys to the car. Queues formed and chaos broke out as people were missing their flights. Don't use this car park. They have no idea what to do when a problem arises.

Easy to get to car park
Check in process efficient
Bus experience frustrating. the driver took no control over people boarding the bus so they simply blocked the entrance as all wanted to be first off. Someone needs to give them some guidance. a simple "Please move down inside the bus" instruction would have sufficed.
People smoking immediately outside the bus allowing smoke into the bus at 6am is unpleasant if you are a non-smoker so an area well away from the arrival hall/bus would make more sense.
Unfortunately some of these issues are people not your people but could be alleviated by your people

Fast check-in. Easy to find the car and check out.

The transfer buses can be busy and I needed to wait for the second bus both ways.... So allow extra time. Saying that, it was peak season.

Staff were friendly.

I would use again.

only bad point was on returning at 0100hrs veichle was not available at collection because my return time had been incorectly entered as 23.59 on the 4th instead of 00.00 hrs on the 4th,but staff quickly bought my car to the collection point. but would have been happier without a 20 minute wait at the end of a long return flight.

Have used aph a number of times now and havnt had any problems until July 13th this year, I drove down to horley only to be told as it was the summer special I was in the wrong car park and should actually be back at the airport which was a bit annoying as I wasn't informed of this before I travelled.

Bexhill on Sea GB Easy going traveller.
The only complaints I have is that at the airport terminal pick up, there are no proper queuing procedures for getting on to the bus, this causes confrontation between passengers and the lack of luggage space is also an issue.

We have used summer special parking for many years and it has always been excellent. The only negative this year was that people waiting for the bus transfer from the airport back to the car park did not queue - they crowded and pushed in and we had to wait for 3 buses before we could actually get transferred, so I would like to suggest some proper queuing structure at the bus stop to encourage people to queue properly rather than just push and shove forcing their way onto the bus.
