The same applies to your return procedure – there should be no need to press a button or wait for assistance. Should you need any help, or if the barrier doesn’t open, just press the intercom; from here it’s just a case of quoting your reference number.

The combination of all these features makes JetParks 1 a fast and efficient car park to stay with. Not only that, but this car park allows you to keep your keys. This means that when you arrive back at JetParks 1, it’s just a case of finding your car and driving home.
