Brilliant service. Easy to book. Easy transfers and dropping of the car couldn't have been simpler. The driver on the return bus was really friendly and helpful. He helped me with my cases and was so helpful. It was 2.30am and he was smiling and chatty which was refreshing. Car was stored in a secure complex hence peace of mind.

Only two elements of the service that were disappointing; 1)— the length/ times of the transfers, esp the return; 2)— having to wait for the gate to close and re- open between EVERY vehicle leaving.

Long Stay Car Park 5 - Non Flex

Booking with FHR.com was very easy and saved us a little on the prices on other websites. Long stay car park 5 is very convenient for the airport as it is on-site and only a short bus ride to the terminal. This is where I have dropped a star - unfortunately waiting for a bus from the car park to the terminal always takes ages! Just leave yourself a little extra time for this.

Long Stay Car Park 5 - Non Flex

Good price considering we booked with only 6 weeks to go. I could not find the confirmation email with 3 days to go before departure date, I phoned customer services who were very friendly and helpful, they resent the confirmation reference. I need not of worried as BookFHR automatically resent the email the day before departure. No problems entering or leaving car park. BookFHR will be my first point of call next time.

Ace Meet & Greet

No problem with the drop off and the only problem with pick up was I had agreed to have the car washed while away, pay when pick up but at 10pm on a Tuesday evening it took ages to get through. On drop off and pick up staff were very polite and very helpful. The only reason I may not do any meet & greet again is due to the distance you have to walk from terminal now they have moved the valet parking. Otherwise i have no complaints about Ace at all. They did an excellent job on the car wash too.
