APH Birmingham - Saver Product

First time we have used this company. Price was good but for us coming from south of Birmingham airport it is the wrong side of the airport, meaning we had to drive past it for 15 0r 20 minutes to get to the car park. It's located quite quite some distance from the actual airport too, meaning it probably added 30 to 35 minutes to our overall journey including the bus back towards the terminal. Staff were effective but not particularly friendly and on our return we sat for quite a while on the bus before it left to return to the car park, which again for us was going in the opposite direction to home so added to our overall time to get home. On the positive side the car was ready and in good condition on return but for us because of the location we would not use again and we'd either find one nearer the terminal or use a meet and greet service.

APH Birmingham - Saver Product

The car park was well organised and check in and out of the system was really quick the only complaint I have is a lack of signs leading to the facility. As its hidden from view when accessing it from the main road it needs a corporate sign well situated. Although I put coordinates into my satnav it took me past the turnoff on the island and I needed to ask several people before finding the entrance other than that the sevice was exellent

Long Stay Car Park 5

This was the first time I had booked airport parking and was a little apprehensive before hand but I needn't have worried as the whole process was trouble free from start to finish, the booking was easy, the car park was in a good location, there were plenty of parking spaces available and the transfer bus was waiting when we needed it. I would definitely use again

Car Park 1

Very close to the terminal but it’s a large, sprawling multi-storey which is always close to being full and quite difficult to find a slot on lower levels. Unless you get lucky be prepared to spend a good 10-15 minutes looking for a slot.

Long Stay Car Park 5

Good price for this convenient car park on site, however when we came to leave, we had to speak to the 'car park operator' as the car park camera had not acknowledged our car and would have charged us over £100 for the 11 days stay. We had altered the stay details and it took a few anxious moments for the operator to find the amended details. Despite this, I would still use this company - but always ensure i have the reference number handy!

Long Stay Car Park 5 - Non Flex

Ease of parking, plenty of spaces. Car park 5 still close to terminal and has a covered walkway to terminals. There is a frequent bus service which runs from car parks but I never use it as its easy and quick (5/10 mins) to walk. Advise Pre-booking for better price and ease of entry and exit at barriers with electronic registration recognition system.

Long Stay Car Park 5

His carpark was very easy to find situated on the edge of the airport. Vehicle registration recognition allowed instant access. You then find a parking space, remembering to write you parking row and section down. Then it was a 5 minute walk to the terminal, or you could get a bus. On returning it was as easy to exit with the vehicle registration recognition on the way out. I would suggest that if the bays were numbered it might help finding your car on return a little easier.

Maple Meet & Greet

First time of doing a Meet and Greet, and won't do it again. Waste of money paying almost double to park off-site and get a bus in, and it took longer, standing in cold weather waiting over 20 minutes before our car was returned, even after making the return phone call at the right time. Staff were very jokey and jolly, which actually made it worse. I don't mind flippant comments, provided the service is adequate.
