Car Park 2 & 3 Flex Plus (N)As always easy parking at Birmingham airport FHR. Had a change of vehicle between booking and arriving which was easy to change. Only issue was that the ANPR didn't pick up on my number plate on leaving the carpark which was dealt with swiftly.

Car Park 1 - Flex Plus (N)There were issues on leaving the car park. The barriers would not recognise my car and would not open. I pressed the help button only for the first operator to disconnect me. The second operator was very helpful and opened the barrier. I have used this car park several times without issu but sadly not on this occasion

Airparks Short RunStaff were a pleasure to deal with. We were the only passengers on the way back from the airport. A pleasurable experience. Only downside was on dropping the car off before our holiday we were directed to an area that was covered in brables.It was difficult to get the cases out of the boot.

Car Park 5 - Flex Plus (N)Easy to book for car park 5 One issue on arrival and departure number plate recognition didnât work. Both times had to ask for assistance, not a great thing at 4am going out waiting 5 minutes for a response. Same happened on way out luckily answered as everyone exiting seemed to have the same issue. Otherwise itâs fine but would use car park 1 in future

Valet Parking Flex PlusVery close to the terminal. Quick and easy drop-off and collection. Would be useful if they a few of their own baggage trolleys. We arrived at about 3am with 2 wheel-less large and heavy soft bags and had to wander around trying to find one in a nearby car park. Fortunately one of their staff went along with us to show us where they were located.

Car Park 5 - Flex Plus (N)Very easy process from start to finish whilst booking for our holiday parking. Just a few days prior to us travelling I developed a minor problem with my vehicle so decided to take my partners car so changed the registration and vehicle model on our booking with great ease, with almost instant confirmation that these changes had been processed for us. Clear instructions on the booking confirmation allowed us as a family to relax whilst travelling to the airport with plenty of spaces to chose from, allowing us plenty of room to unload our luggage safely. Luckily we found a spot directly opposite a shuttle bus stop who turned up just as we were lifting the last case out of the car, although there was nobody else at the stop the driver was happy to wait for us, allowing us to catch the bus instantly rather than having to wait around with 2 young children. From start to finish we couldnât fault this service

Airparks Short RunGreat location but a bit tricky to find on sat nav ( you are told this on confirmation). Drivers are very helpful with getting luggage in and out of buses. Buses were clean and comfortable and enough space for luggage. One thing I would suggest is that it is clearer on pick up of arrival at the airport, which bus goes where. Unfortunately we ended up on the wrong bus going to the car park tht was 15 minutes away. However, I would like to thank the two gentlemen at the reception at 9.10pm last night (3/5/23) who kindly saw that with two young children that late at night and arranged transport to get us to the correct car park without having to go all the way back to the airport and wait for another bus. They were also very helpful with the luggage. A real credit to your team

Car Park 5 - Flex Plus (N)The barriers did not open with the use of the Car registration number both on arrival and departure which then involved the use of the phone and it became apparent that they appeared to be checking the booking rather than the barriers operating automatically.However we were allowed in and out following the check.The prices also appear to have increased compared with previous bookings.
