Good value for money. Was well within walking distance from the terminal, even walked back at 12.30 in the morning plenty of lighting and excellent safe route, but there were plenty of bus stops if you preferred to wait for buses. Because weâd pre booked we were straight in and straight out. Excellent all round would definitely use again.

First time I have used this car park. Was very happy with service provided.
Rating Book Again: Yes Gail Boulton - 30 May 2019 14:00
Superb! Exactly as you would hope for, and expect. I've had problems with other M&G operators in the past, but this was the best experience I have had. On arrival the collection was efficient, helpful and cheery, even at 4.30 in the morning. On return, at 8pm, called after collecting my baggage, and on arriving at the collection point, the car was sitting there. No delays whatsoever. A great relief to a very long day.

Reliable service! I recommend.
Rating Book Again: Yes Lech - 29 May 2019 18:05
Booking with FHR was faultless - quick and simple. However, on the day of my arrival to the airport, the Car Park 5 had a sign outside informing customers that the car park was closed, redirecting everyone to Car Park 1. This caused a massive confusion and delays at the ramps, as - obviously - nobody's number plate was recognised and therefore in order to get in, but not get charged again, people had to contact the assistance line to have their booking amended. If I remember it right, there were 4 or 5 ramps at Car Park 1, and all had long queues of cars trying to get in. Afterwards, once in, it took me almost half an hour to find a parking space. Warning: make sure you arrive well ahead of your flight departure. Parking at Birmingham airport can sometimes be a nightmare!

As always a satisfactory parking experience. The Car Park does seem to be busier these days which can make finding a space difficult. Perhaps it would be possible to use technology to show where the empty spaces are?
