Customer comments

Summer Special North

"Very handy for gat wick airport and not too much fuss to worry about before your holiday"
Mrs Drake, Essex, 1 Oct 2013

Summer Special North

"Good efficient and friendly service overall. However, the bus driver on the return journey was extremely unhelpful and wanted to leaver the bus stop with a half empty bus just because he didn't want to ask people to move along the bus. He was even prepared to leave a mother and her baby in a push chair separated from the rest of her family who were already on the bus."
Mrs Diamond, Kent, 26 Sep 2013

Summer Special North

"We have used your company for a number of years now and wouldn't book with anyone else. A first class service every time - thank you very much :)"
Miss Flory, Surrey, 17 Sep 2013

Summer Special North

"was an inconvenience to fill in a parking card with car and flight info as had to dig out paperwork when in a rush and they should have all info on their system and print one out made me miss bus and risked leaving something behind Would be even worse if a very early flight put me off using again"
Mrs Gore, Surrey, 17 Sep 2013

Summer Special North

"Bus drove away to airport empty that we missed and next bus sat for 15 minutes waiting to fill. Nearly missed flight."
Mr Tutte, West Malling, 6 Aug 2013

Summer Special North

"The way APH advertise online is confusing and not clear which car park is actually booked. It should be made clear if it is not an APH car park."
Mr Cox, Kettering, 6 Aug 2013

Summer Special North

"I have used the Summer Special carpark many times and never had one complaint. Excellent service and straight forward booking through APH. Thanks."
Mr Bradley, Swindon, 30 Jul 2013

"I had to complete a key tag with all the information previously given when booking. This took unnecessary time especially having to look up the information in my papers. First time I have had to do this when parking."
Mr Scully, Cobham, 23 Jul 2013

"Cable tie which was holding on rear number plate missing when we picked car up"
Mr Hilliard, Essex, 18 Jun 2013

Summer Special North

"Felt the new style buses, with only one door, were quite tricky to negotiate when trying to load luggage. Many clients left wheeled cases in the gangway which moved around when the bus was moving. Health & safety issues here."
Miss Cooper, Kent, 18 Jun 2013

Summer Special North

"I think it would be a good idea to have a copy of the car information and flight etc on your web booking so that when you arrive at the car park all info is to hand as many a time I have had to pull out all my flight details to enter on the card provided at the booking in hall.Would save time for everyone."
Mr Hulke, Hampshire, 31 May 2013

Summer Special North

"Due to a security alert we were diverted from parking at north terminal to long stay south. On collection of my vehicle although we had booked and prepayed for staying in a north terminal car park the process for leaving the car park was very smooth."
Mr Stringfellow, Dorset, 21 May 2013

Mr Birchley, Kent, 15 Apr 2013

Summer Special North

"The written directions provided by APH were incorrect. The BP petrol station referred to in the directions no longer exists and is therefore misleading and did cause a problem. Please check and reissue directions which are valid and correct. I presume that a BP garage did exist at some stage when the original instructions were written."
Mr Francis, Berkshire, 9 Oct 2012

Summer Special North

"No problems getting to airport and collection very easy and quick."
Mr Piggins, Wiltshire, 8 Oct 2012

"It was very dark and the staff didn't seem to want to help you locating the car."
Mrs Goulding, Essex, 8 Oct 2012

Summer Special North

"I would like to see some reduction made on booking for those who regularly park with you and not wait for the offers as these do not always fall within the dates I need. I.e. loyalty points."
Mrs Schofield, West Sussex, 3 Oct 2012

Summer Special North

"You need to sort the picking up from the airport as squeezing so many people on the bus is so dangorous and silly because if there had been an accident I would have sued the pants of your company. You would not be able to board a normal bus like this and I think that the driver should have a duty of care towards us his passengers and should have checked how many people were squeezed on including small children just not safe."
Mrs Jenkinson, Buckinghamshire, 3 Oct 2012

Summer Special North

"Very quick and slick service throughout."
Mr Bunce, Kent, 3 Oct 2012

Summer Special North

"I was placed quite a long way from the reception on arrival and had to cart my luggage to the bus. Receptionist was quite surly. On return had to wait a long time to get my keys and had a long walk to the car in the rain."
Mr Mills, Kent, 3 Oct 2012

Mrs Mullany, West Sussex, 2 Oct 2012

Summer Special North

"Nothing but praise"
Mr Stone, Suffolk, 2 Oct 2012

Summer Special North

"Upon returning to the car park at about 2.30am we found our car battery was dead. Whilst waiting for my "rescue" man to arrive, a team from APH offered to try to jump-start the car. This was a kind and most welcome gesture; however, the young man did not have a torch and attached the leads incorrectly (blowing the fuse on my stereo). Could have been a more successful outcome had he been better prepared!"
Mrs Robinson, Kent, 2 Oct 2012

Summer Special North

"The service and operation at this site is lacking. There is no focus on customer needs and the experience does not make a good start to what should be a good holiday"
Mr O'Mara, Berkshire, 9 Sep 2012

Summer Special North

"very slow queue first thing in the morning, only two people on the desk with long queues this was at 3-30am. Transfer bus very very slow.We nearly miss our flight due to being held up by the bus being slow,after having queued so long.I think your web site should advise people to allow extra time in high season."
Mrs Mccarthy, Kent, 1 Sep 2012

Summer Special North

"no problems with aph booking dervice. car park was near to the airport but seemed very disorganised. it was a busy day and the queue to check the car in was very long, but there was only 1 bus waiting, which arrived about 10 mins after we had checked in. not everyone could get on the one bus so had to wait, at which point they seemed to put on another bus."
Mr Powell, Essex, 28 Aug 2012

Summer Special North

"long slow queues each time leaving and collecting car"
Mr Walter, East Sussex, 23 Jul 2012

Summer Special North

"At the moment the booking in Staff, give out a parking space number ,and point in the general direction of the spot. This is not so helpful if it is raining hard, or indeed night time, bearing in mind that dragging around heavy cases can be involved when searching for the spot. Perhaps a wall chart, showing a diagram of the overhead view would be more helpful. This is a suggestion--not a major criticism"
Mr Taylor, Kent, 11 Jul 2012

Summer Special North

"when greeted with 'you need to speak to him' on arrival at the parking office and then when I spoke to 'him' I was greeted with, you need to fill out form! I think most people would prefer something like 'GOOD MORNING HOW CAN I HELP YOU?"
Mr Horbury, Berkshire, 3 Jul 2012

Summer Special North

"Very efficient and quick service. Would have apprecisted more seats on the transfer bus. Overall very pleased with service provided."
Miss Jones, Middlesex, 27 Jun 2012

Mr Hards, Surrey, 26 Jun 2012
