Waited for 20 mins for pick up to go to terminal - bus packed and some passengers declined for lack of room. Feel needs more buses - expect this sort of service on London Underground!

Baldock GB
Signage was confusing, we needed zone N but signs went from A-K then P-Q. Several of the zones were flagged as closed when in fact they were open. This was a bit confusing. Buses were prompt and driver helpful calling out the stops.

The bus driver taking us back to the Long stay car park was very helpful.
He managed to squeeze all the passengers on to the bus, when a bigger bus was required.
He also called out all the stops and did not rush passengers who were disembarking.

Leicester GB
Good position car park. It was a pleasure to be able to depart quickly from the car park and not be stopped when exiting and asked to pay an extortionate payment which we have experienced at several airports due to inefficient number plate recognition.

Driver did not speak at all-I had to ask where to get the bus on the return journey and he pointed but still did not speak. The transfer is a lot longer than expected as we went to the short stay car park first. Not a very pleasant first time experience.

When following the signs for the Long Term Car Park, don't panic when you find yourself going back onto the motorway. It seems counter intuitive but then shortly the signs reappear and you get there. Otherwise everything else is pretty seamless.

Chelmsford GB
The only down side to our experience was exiting the car park. We inserted the ticket and to our surprise an amount of £234.00 was displayed as payment to exit. We used the help button at the barrier and the staff member was very helpful although he could not find our booking on the system. It was eventually found and to our relief we exited the car park.

We had to change vehicles from that booked originally and this proved no problem on entry. However, there was a problem on exit as we were unable to exit using our ticket and had to search for the APH Ref No to give to the gate staff who obviously had no record of the change.

Scarborough GB
Although all staff extremely helpful and pleasant, there was an issue on arrival with the prepaid booking which made what should be a really simple and straight forward process, more timely and awkward. Same issue occured on departure. Staff were on hand and sorted the issues however.

With an elderly traveller the waiting around for the bus on departure AND on arrival wasn't good. We would look at alternatives next time we fly with her from Stanstead

Devizes GB
Had to wait ages for the bus on returning to Stansted, it took longer than 25 minutes for a bus to come and then of course it was packed so it took ages to load and then it had to keep stopping in the car park. All in all it took over an hour to get from the airport to the car.

Amersham GB
Quite a long way from car park to terminal, and the return to the right bit of the car park felt a bit hit and miss (the driver said "I'll call out the the name of the next bus stop and you ring the bell if you want to stop there" - no good if I had been deaf).
