Car Park 5

Car park 5 was closed. Minor panic as we hadn’t been informed. Was a covid-testing site. This should have been known. Signage said to go to Car Park 1 instead. Rang through at the barrier and all sorted out. Nearer the airport terminal so actually made things easier. Really though, we should have been notified by email.

Car Park 5

Overall a good experience and would normally attract 5 stars but for the experience on my departure. I was due to park my car in Carpark 5 at Birmingham airport but on arrival a sign directed me to Carpark 1 due to COVID testing taking place. This was not a problem the sign was very clear and carpark I easy to find. I leaving carpark I entered my issued ticket and had a shock that it was to cost me £138.00, despite being a pre paid customer and having been redirected to carpark 1 and been issued a ticket by one of your operatives via the intercom on arrival. This was initially disconcerting but your operator whom I spoke to was brilliant and very politely rectified the problem. His customer handling skills were excellent and he should be applauded for his efficiency and politeness, hence the 4 stars.

Car Park 1

Carpark is about a 5 min walk to the departures entrance which is ok but as we were unable to park in a disabled bay at the Carpark this made it less of a benefit to us . Would have been better booking off site and being dropped off at the entrance of departures and also paying a lot less. As you are unable to book these spaces theirs clearly not enough disability Carparking spaces available. For us we'll look at holidays departing from Manchester in the future as our first choice
