As usual, a straight forward process of dropping off the car and picking up on our return. Up to yet I have had no reason to complain or question the service that FHR give. It is easy to book and cost efficient as far as I'm concerned.

Car park 5 is situated just a short walk from the main terminal. There is also a bus that runs from the car park to the terminal which is also handy if travelling with young children. The car park was easy to find and the directions were clear. Would use again.

Car Park 1

Car park is located a very short walk away from the terminal building. Used this car park several times and always find a space relatively quickly (lower levels tend to be always full). Several big lifts to transport you and your luggage to the ground level. Parking bays are numbered so you should have no problem finding your vehicle on your return. There are cheaper car parks at Birmingham Airport, but the extremely short walk from this one to the terminal building makes it well worth paying a little bit extra to avoid having to wait for a transfer bus on other car parks.

An extremely easy and well-priced booking experience and arrival instructions were sent promptly and proved very easy to understand. Checked in immediately on arrival and were transported to the airport within 5 minutes. The drivers were extremely helpful with loading of cases, etc. The return instructions worked perfectly too, our car was found easily on arrival and upon realising we needed air in a tyre, one of the staff even helped us with that! I found this an excellent service and will definitely be using again.
