APH Birmingham - Saver Product

Everything fine apart from delays at the exit on our return. While I appreciate the need to keep the site secure, the delays at the exit barrier were frustrating as each car had to wait for the barrier to come down and then enter the code and wait for it to be raised again. Would it not be possible to fit a sensor that would allow cars leave in procession without lowering the barrier?

Car Park 1

The booking process and parking experience was all OK except when we came to exit when we were asked to pay £328 for a week’s parking despite having pre-booked and prepaid! After seeking assistance at the barrier we were let through ...with no apology. This was not what we needed after a long flight with a queue forming behind us.

Ace Meet & Greet

I rang when 20 minutes out and staff were available to collect my car. On return I called after collecting bags and car was returned a couple of minutes after I reached car park. Was cheaper than on airport parking. Only problem is that the drop off point is about 5 minutes walk from terminal, with no signposting on return. It's not the companies fault as the airport parking has been reconfigured, but it's hardly drop off any more. Last time I parked in car park 5 and walked back in the same time.

Long Stay Car Park 5

Thought this was going to be an easy more economical option. It was fine getting to departures so fine from that point of view. On return our flight had been delayed by 2 hours. Baggage was slow coming out. The bus shuttle took more that 15 minutes to arrive and it was pouring with rain and the bus shelter full so we got pretty wet. When we did get to the car park barrier to exit it was chaos as many people had exceeded the time and had to pay excess. The person in front of us had his card rejected for payment and ran off to find someone to pay by cash so we were held up and had to pay excess ourselves.
