FHR Meet and Greet - Non refundable

I book with FHR with all my airport parking but on this occasion I was disappointed. We had to walk almost 10 mins from the meet and greet to departure/arrival hall. on arrival the vehicle display had been tampered with... it took me 5 mins to sort and put back to original setting....

Ace Meet & Greet

Meet and greet area at Birmingham is a 5 min walk from terminal. It is not undercover so be prepared for all weather conditions. We had a 15 min wait on return in the cold. However, the area provided for M&G is no doubt provided by the airport so it is what it is and if you want this service you have to accept the location although not ideal.

Car Park 1 - Non-Flex

Certainly wasn’t expecting a sandstorm in Tenerife and a delay of more than 24 hours. Fortunately the booking was ok ... but the number plate reader wasn’t working on entry, and on return the barrier wouldn’t lift saying we owed 308£ .... Sorted eventually but just another experience to add to the others in a holiday we won’t forget in a hurry .....

Service was good with spaces close to exit, the only issue was the number plate recognition which did not work and we had to wait to enter and leave.

Maple Meet & Greet

Drop off was ok when we left the uk but on return we waited another 15 minutes in the car park with no shelter on a cold night for the car to turn up after we had called post luggage collection as instructed. They told us they only have a 10 minute window for exiting the car park area and then left us hanging around - they needed to do better than this. I would use them again but they will only get one more chance.

We had difficulty retrieving our car key and had to get the bus driver to help. Being dyslexic five seconds to retrieve our key is not sufficient time to read all the instructions and then get the key . The bus driver said this has been happening ever since they have introduced this system . But the overall experience was good .

Blue Circle Meet & Greet

It was not well sign posted..but very well organised once we found it. Main disappointment was it was a fair walk to the terminal, being elderly, we use Meet and Greet to get as close as we can.

This would have been higher however when dropping car off the blue circle man was v rude. We had been waiting a little while when I saw him in his car. I went over and basically told me I had parked in wrong bay hence why he didn’t get out. I showed him the paperwork which clearly I was in the right bay. He was not a very nice person and I felt I was being talked down to because I was a woman
