Meet and Greet

Very good and efficient as always. We are regulars and always the same, very good experience.. Just one small issue - your disclaimers for damage (we have none) but you require the car to be examined carefully before driving away, On a rainy miserable night,2300 hrs, carpark effectively in darkness, That is just not reasonable, hope that I never have to put it to the test, am sure that I wont have to on past experience!

Mid Stay 1

Generally no problem with using FHR. On this occasion at East Midlands Airport the barrier would not rise when I approached it to leave the car park. Once I had given my car registration to the operator he allowed the barrier to lift. A problem reading the number plate? Otherwise everything was fine.

Mid Stay 1

This is the second time we have used the airport parking and we are more than happy with the ease of parking and disembarking from the any of the car parks at East Midlands airport. The only couple of things which could have made it better is some additional lights and a little better signage on the Tarmac and leading to the airport from the car park. All in all we are very satisfied with the service you provide.
