Most importantly, travellers using meet and greet will no longer need to add time to their trip by driving to off-airport car parks before catching a bus back to terminal. And for those parking at the airport, meet and greet will avoid the anxiety of hunting vacant bays in packed on-airport car parks without allocated spaces.
Travellers who book meet and greet parking simply drive straight to the airport terminal where they’ll be met by a fully insured, uniformed representative from their service provider. Typically, the meeting point will be on the terminal forecourt or nearby on-airport car park.
Once at the meeting point, travellers can unload bags and take a short stroll – typically 2 or 3 minutes – to the check-in desks while a fully insured driver delivers their car to a nearby security-protected car park for the duration of their trip.
And when booked through APH, cars cared for by meet and greet providers will be stored in facilities that hold a police-approved Park Mark Safer Parking Award. No need to worry about rogue operators dumping vehicles on public streets, municipal car parks or unprotected wasteland.
And don’t forget, along with departure day, meet and greet brings welcome benefits for travellers returning to Stansted. Arriving back at the airport, passengers can clear customs, collect their bags and walk from terminal doors straight into their vehicle. No need to queue for transfers of drag bags around car parks.
