Swift Meet & Greet Birmingham

Called before arrival to let them know we would be early, as requested, was told to phone back 15 mins before arriving,at which happened to be 5 mins later. Waste of a phone call. It then took 15 mins to get back in touch with them due to bad connection and loss of signal so ended up being 10 mins before arrival.Waited ages after arriving at airport for swift staff to collect car, well over 30 mins. Very confusing as no one seemed to know what was going on. Coming back was lots better, only had to make 1 call and car was there within 20 mins.

I think your service is excellent,but you could improve by when you have. A coach full ov ppl to open the electronic gates so it’s just the bar as this was very time consuming and frustrating,we at to wait more than 15 minutes to get out as the queue was quite big also when you have been hanging around all day for your flight home it’s the last thing you need at 10-20 pm .

Car Park 1 - Non-Flex

We arrived at the car park but couldn't gain access. We had to get assistance. The same happened when we exited the car park. Might be something wrong with the vehicle recognition system, if there is one. Very convenient for the airport, with a short walk to departure and arrival halls. Not good in bad weather though.

Good service. Only fault is leaving as gate and barrier close after every car exits . When there is a queue of a very lot of cars why can't the gate and barrier remain open! Took us 20mins to exit last night.

Very efficient service and seemed a good secure car park. Better on cost than other airport parking we have used. The only downside is that it is quite a way away from the airport so added nearly an hour on to our trip each way.
