FHR Meet and Greet - Non refundable

Everything was absolutely perfect until we got to the meet and greet and there were no wheelchairs and there was no flexibility when I asked the meet and greet guys to bring the car closer to the airport departure terminal both at drop off and pick up - but then you can’t have everything and you live and learn. All round superb service

Car Park 2 & 3 - Non-Flex

On arrival the barrier recognises your car and welcomes you, just find a parking space, lock up and walk two minutes to the terminal. No worries about your car being driven around and parked in an unsecured field. On arrival back, just walk two minutes to your car and off you go. Do make a note of where it’s parked as we did spend a few extra minutes looking on the wrong floor. Excellent. Will use again although will probably pick car park 1 as it is closer to the check in desk we were using. That’s how lazy we are!

We found a space easily enough, but finding the exit isn’t that easy. Eventually Sign on road says exit you follow sign and it leads you to the buses only exit, no sign to say left or right from there, that could be made easier.

Car Park 1 - Non-Flex

Good car park; close to the terminal - about 2 mins away. Main issue is the spaces are not clear as to which are empty and could do with a system similar to Heathrow or Ikea with lights guiding you to spaces. Otherwise, no issue with the entry which recognised the car and exit which was easy. Happy to use again.

Excellent value, only problem the ANPR did not recognise the cars number plate on entry as my cars details hadn't been transferred onto the main system so on entry and exit I had to contact Customer services of the car park to open the barrier.

APH Birmingham - Saver Product

After a delay getting to the car park due to motorway closures we then had to wait over 30 minutes before the bus left to the airport. After clearing security we had 15 minutes to spare. I understand there was a shortage of drivers that day but it was well below what we expect from Hams Hall. The return pick up went smoothly.
