DONCASTER GB Frequent flier
The shuttles were poorly timed, too long to wait between buses with buses just dropping off! Coming back from the airport, driver let on all ISS operatives first who then blocked the aisles so that the fare paying passengers had difficulty getting on and off. When leaving the car park the machine "ate" my ticket, I then pressed the button for help but had to wait 5-6 minutes for a response, not what you want after a 1 hour transit through the airport!

Warwick GB
Long Stay such a long way from the airport !! Long bus journey back to the park, then long tour around all of the other drop off points to get to mine ( it was the last one !).
Why build a new airport with no near main car park ?
Would recommend paying a bit more for the nearer Medium Stay park.

There were too few buses operating from the long stay car park at Stansted resulting in overcrowding and long delays. Staff were helpful and apologetic but this was clearly a deliberate management decision to save costs.

Marshchapel, Lincs. GB Regular flyer.
I have complained formerly but as yet received no response.
To summarise:-

1. I prebooked and paid yet on exit was prevented from leaving unless I paid £247.00.
2. I pressed button for assistance and no-one responded for over 3 minutes.
3. The person who did eventually responded was abrupt and 'couldn't care less.'
4. I was eventually allowed out of the car park without explanation or apology.

Wont be going back!

Car park easy to find, although for some reason our Sat Nav. didn't recognize the post code so you may want to check before you leave, but local signs to long stay car park are very easy around Standstead. Transfer bus is at least 10 mins to airport so leave plenty of time before your flight.
