Long Stay Car Park 5 - Non Flex

Whilst parking the car and jumping on the bus across is straight forward, we arrived having pre booked our parking. The booking confirmation stated that on arrival at the car park the barrier would read our number plate and rise automatically. This was not the case. The barrier didn’t rise and when I pressed the assistance button the guy on the other end questioned whether I was even at the right car park let alone the right airport. Subsequently a family member had to contact the airport parking to discuss and sort the problem. On return I had to quote another reference number where the barrier was then raised without any issues. Otherwise. It was a car park!

Long Stay Car Park 5

Having arrived at Birmingham airport car park 5 I entered the barrier and the number plate recognition didn't work I called help and after several minutes someone opened the barrier at 4.00 am this was upsetting as I had a 10 year old daughter with me I gave the helper my reference number in which he didn't find it. I returned 1 week later drove to the exit barrier and same thing happened alot of cars behind me yet barrier doesn't go up so overall very disappointed
