Customer comments

Long Stay T1 & T3

"The only problem was the when I put in the token to exit the car park it twice rejected the amount as inadequate. It was only that I persevered a third time that prevented me causing a long queue to exit the car park - I have no idea why it worked on the third occasion and not the previous two"
Dr Kelly, Cumbria, 4 Dec 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"The APH website is always the first option we check when booking any airport car parking"
Mrs Wood, Manchester, 3 Dec 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"Entry system using numberplate recognition does not work very well. we had to press a button to get a token when it is supposed to be presented to us. we then ended up with 2 tokens. on return we presented one of them which said £125 to pay so had to use the call button"
Mrs Loffstadt, CHESHIRE, 25 Nov 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"We were delayed by 16 hours through no fault of our own we have used aph many times before with delays and not been charged we expected to pay something but we were charged £15 extra for 16 hours when we only paid £35 for the week this is day light robbery for 1 day extra very disappointed and will never use aph again and will not recommend them to any one"

"Not easy to arrange when you want hotel accommodation AFTER the holiday! We were sent to the wrong Premier Inn too!"
Mrs Dean, Staffordshire, 30 Sep 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"The one way system needs to be more clearly marked. As the car park road markings for a previous layout are still present it is confusing as to whether you can turn left or right in certain places and end up driving round in circles before you actually find the exit."
Mrs Towse, East Yorkshire, 30 Sep 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"I had to delay my return by 3 days whilst overseas. Your online booking did not sallow me to do this, so I had to telephone your office. While waiting for a connection the recorded message said I should make the change on line! After being connected i was told I would have to pay the extra when leaving the car park. I was charged £45 for this and I was not pleased."
Mr Taylor, Merseyside, 30 Sep 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"It was a well set our car park, good surface with colour zones, numbered lanes, numbered bus stops and good lighting making it easy and conveninet to find your car, even late at night. I liked the idea on no extra charge for cancellation fee and even though we ran over our stay, albeit by only 4 minutes, we were not asked to pay any surcharge. A small but very nice touch. Well done APH. I shall not even shop around next time."
Mr Cole, Derbyshire, 30 Sep 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"It took me quite a long time to find an empty space to park in as the area was almost full. I didn't use the transfer service on my return though the car was parked at the furthest away section from terminal 3"
Mr Lynch, Cheshire, 26 Sep 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"Despite pre booking I was informed at the entrance that the park was full, however I was still allowed in. It was extremely difficult to find a space. What would of happened if I did not find a space? How can you say a space is reserved for you?"
Mr Stockham, Clwyd, 26 Sep 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"The guy who drove us to terminal was lovely And on seeing my husband had walking Difficulties he took care of our baggage lifting Bags on an off bus. But, on return journey It was a female driver who was not at all helpful and a very abrupt person, she made me feel uneasy and I was rushing lifting bags as she made me feel I had to hurry up! I would've scored top marks only for her spoiling the end of Our holiday!"

Mr Worley, Lancashire, 17 Sep 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"Shuttle bus driver on return journey to the car park was not helpfull, and would not drop people off at their requested areas. In my opinion he was just having a laugh at people getting wet in the torrential rain"
Mr Thomas, Shropshire, 17 Sep 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"every time we use the car parks, we seem to fail to operate the barrier correctly on arrival and on leaving and have to ask for help. The lighting at the entry barrier made it difficult to see instructions at night."
Mrs Bowl, Clwyd, 17 Sep 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"my booking was not recognised by my reg no. as stated in your documents , took some time to confirm my booking with the help button . T1 / T3 long stay park has confusing signs to get out of the park . not obvious where to cue for the bus back to the car park after leaving arrivals G."

Mr Cottrell, Lancashire, 10 Sep 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"The new 'token' system at Manchester airport car park is fantastic, being both quick and easy to use. It also is far more reliable then the previous number-plate only recognition system, which frequently required human intervention to exit!"
Mr Swift, Derbyshire, 10 Sep 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"Although Q 17 states that one of the advantages is piece of mind in that a space is reserved for you, I would be happier having an allocated numbered space & row etc. as I get very stressed driving round trying to find a space!"
Ms Anderson, West Yorkshire, 3 Sep 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"This park did not have enough of space. It took me at least 30 minutes to search for a space."
Dr Sharan, North Yorkshire, 27 Aug 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3

"Booked long term parking at teminal 1/3 at Manchester.This was full on arrival and I was diverted to the multi-story near by .However the initial instuctions wer not very clear and it took two attempts to ascertain what the alternative arrangements were . Not good when you are not familiar with the airport and not sure if the booking was going to be honoured and with reference to question 17 did not really have peace of mind"
Mr Foreman, Cheshire, 27 Aug 2013

Long Stay T1 & T3
