Long Stay Car Park 5

easy, simple process (remember to add to some wiggle time on your ticket entry and exit). Remember which bus stop you were near. Keep your ticket safe. I had no cause to speak to staff so cannot commment but providing common sense prevails it works well. If you have just missed a bus they are very frequent and the most to get to the terminal wpuld be aprox 20 mins. Hope that helps (security cameras on site). I generally use this service 3 times a year.

Long Stay Car Park 5 - Non Flex

The booking process was very easy and straightforward. At the airport, the Car park 5 is easy to find, however when I arrived, my registration number was not recognised and therefore the barrier did not open for me. I tried to reverse and approach it a couple of times but eventually I had to call for assistance. Once I spoke to the member of staff and gave my booking details, they issued a ticket for me and I was able to park. There were plenty of spaces and the bus to the terminal operated frequently. I had no problems when leaving the car park.
