Swift Meet & Greet Birmingham

Drop off was fine... on our return at 23:30 it took 45 minutes to have our car brought to us... despite being told 15minutes and advised to walk to the very cold exposed meeting point.... we could have shuttle bussed to an off site car park faster... disappointing.

APH Birmingham - Saver Product

We have used this car park for many years. However this time the experience was way below our expectations. The exit procedure was awful. It took 5 minutes per car to exit the gate. And when there are approx 15 cars waiting it became a joke. The staff didn't respond quickly enough. Eventually they did by standing at the gate and collecting the gate codes manually, which was then 10 seconds per car. After traveling 20hrs you just want to get home.

First time I've used this car park and it was painless. The car park is easy to find and is a short bus drive to the airport. Any staff we spoke to were helpful and friendly. I would have given five stars if the bus was more frequent but that was not a huge deal.
