Great service, call received before departure to check everything okay. We were met at airport at correct time. The only negative was the incorrect paperwork, but this was quickly resolved. On return the car was available immediately. Overall excellent service.

Car Park 5 - Non Flex

Easy access, Easy to book. Reasonable price. My only thought is that I don’t like the fact that the barrier lifted automatically on exit which means that anyone could have driven my car out. Would prefer that you had to enter your ticket as this would be more secure.

FHR Meet and Greet - Non refundable

I book with FHR with all my airport parking but on this occasion I was disappointed. We had to walk almost 10 mins from the meet and greet to departure/arrival hall. on arrival the vehicle display had been tampered with... it took me 5 mins to sort and put back to original setting....

Ace Meet & Greet

Meet and greet area at Birmingham is a 5 min walk from terminal. It is not undercover so be prepared for all weather conditions. We had a 15 min wait on return in the cold. However, the area provided for M&G is no doubt provided by the airport so it is what it is and if you want this service you have to accept the location although not ideal.

Car Park 1 - Non-Flex

Certainly wasn’t expecting a sandstorm in Tenerife and a delay of more than 24 hours. Fortunately the booking was ok ... but the number plate reader wasn’t working on entry, and on return the barrier wouldn’t lift saying we owed 308£ .... Sorted eventually but just another experience to add to the others in a holiday we won’t forget in a hurry .....

Maple Meet & Greet

Drop off was ok when we left the uk but on return we waited another 15 minutes in the car park with no shelter on a cold night for the car to turn up after we had called post luggage collection as instructed. They told us they only have a 10 minute window for exiting the car park area and then left us hanging around - they needed to do better than this. I would use them again but they will only get one more chance.
