Long Stay 1

I would have given this more stars except for the unlit parking Signs. Almost impossible to see in the dark. The bus driver didn't know where they were either. Resulting in the whole family trapsing around the carpark for 20 minutes at night time. Also the letters are confusing as FF is a long way away from F. Needs better signs better lighting.

No problems dropping off the car. It’s easy to find. We were delayed coming back by 20 hours and didn’t get charged any extra, which was good. Would use again.

Long Stay 1

The Directional Signs once at the Airport I found to be very small & difficult to follow. My travel companion & I did not appreciate the difficulty in trying to find Long Stay Car Park 1 at 7am in the morning. For a relative small airport it was a bad experience in terms of trying to find the car park & then the same to get to the M1 with road works etc. I am NOT IN A HURRY TO USE EAST MIDLANDS AIRPORT AGAIN, SORRY TO SAY.
