The transfer from car park to airport took so much longer than necessary, minimum half an hour if not longer. I actually can drive home in half an hour. It took ages until bus arrived, journey took certainly not 5 minutes but more than 25 minutes, bus was full and sweaty. Poor value for money. Definitely taking taxi next time.

Bus service could be more frequent
Clearer signs needed outside arrivals for where to queue for the return bus to the car park

When we returned there were over 100 people at the bus stop this was because the bus was late (we waited at least 30 mins). The driver then stopped beyond the stop (you could tell he did this deliberately) as it was more effort for him to do this than stopping at the right spot. There was then a free- for -all as he was 30 yards past the head of the queue and children were getting separated from their parents. Once on board the announcements were not detailed enough for people to be sure they were at the right stop but the driver clearly did not care. All in all a very bad experience created by yourselves. You have asked for my comments.....but why have I bothered ?

I don't know about the staff because we didn't talk to any.
This was advertised as on airport parking, this may be the case but if so only just it took as 40 minutes from arrival to terminal which is way too long.

Easy to use and very convenient. Just had a minor glitch on the way out when our pre-paid ticket didn't register and the ticket machine wanted £126 to let us out! However, this was very quickly resolved by a push on the 'help' button.

Number plate recognition failed on entry so had to talk to staff on entry and exit.
Park quite a long drive from airport terminal.
If I had not pre booked the cost would have risen 2.5 times, and I was really shocked by the cost for anyone who had not pre booked.

Long wait for bus pick up. Lay out of carpark confusing. Driver doesn't stop at all stops ( he didn't stop at our stop ) pressed the stop button on bus as he had drove past our stop, my husband had to get of to walk round to the driver to tell him he had drove past our stop. The driver told us to get of and walk to it. It wasn't just my family of 6 there was also another family that had to do the same. And at 3.30 in the morning with to children it wasn't the ideal situation. Then he closed the door when we were trying to get our cases off. Ticket machine didn't except my parents ticket and had to press for help. The woman on the intercom wasn't very helpful either. Overall experence wouldn't use it again

There was a ten minute or so wait for a bus back to the car park but otherwise this service could not be more straightforward.

It was easy and economical, with no time delays. Not sure if it is always so or that it would have been so convenient in bad weather but we would try it again.

For a lone lady traveller arriving at the Long Stay in the dark, the area can feel intimidating as there is no employee presence and in my experience, no other travellers have alighted at the same stop as me whenever I have used the facility. It pays to make detailed notes of where you have parked your vehicle in order to avoid having to walk a long way. Another minus point is that I found the numbering indistinct in the dark and perhaps could benefit from being improved. I do not know how a traveller would summon assistance in the event of an emergency other than having to find the telephone number of the car park and telephone that.

In daylight, everything is fine.

Overall good service, although sometimes the closed zones are a bit confusing. Bus drivers not always the friendliest. Sometimes have to wait quite a long time for bus to arrive at terminal.
