Meet and Greet

We booked meet and greet for the first time, the service both flying out of and into East Midlands Airport was superb. After a long night trip from Cyorus it was great that our car had been moved close to the terminal, it took us just a few minutes to pick up our car and be on the way home.

Long Stay 1

Easy to find car park - going not a problem. Returning was confusing - not easily identify between Jet park and long stay park - had to ask the driver - whilst on the bus somebody had got on the long stay 1 but wanted the jet stay 1. Needs a vocal announcement when going to the airport on the bus to say not to get confused with which one - Buses could also have it splashed all over which one it is or different colour buses.
