Drivefly Meet and Greet

Great departure procedure. On arrival we had to wait longer than expected after collecting our luggage. BHX sent passengers to luggage 6, but actually put the baggage on 5. Dooh! I’d have expected your team to have recognised the flight hand landed, and worked forward from that. Maybe you could have called me? All the best. MAple customers seemed to be hanging around less time than us.

I Can Park and Ride

I'm affaid I am not happy with this airport parking. Having been away for 11 days, on return our car was covered in gull excrement and dust ,we had to find a carwash before travelling home at a cost of £7.00 to us so not good value.

Long Stay Car Park 5 - Non Flex

Had to change vehicle details prior to using the car park and did so on line with no problems. Because of this I thought we may have an issue on entry but all was fine on entry and exit. It took roughly 10 minutes to walk to the terminal and we never saw a courtesy bus in that time, not sure if there is any way to call when waiting at a stop. All in all it was much better than parking off site

Excellent! Late booking - easy drop off, not too far from airport, bus waiting on return, easy collection. Car cleaned as well (for a fee) and saved £40 by not booking on airport parking.
