Very helpful when I had to change the car after a mechanical issue with the original car booked. Great price. Regular buses.
5 Rating Book Again: Yes Sarah - 13 Sep 2019 10:16


The buses have always been reliable and timely when I've used this car park. The staff are friendly and polite. My car has always been safe. The spaces can be tiny with people parking badly to give themselves more room. I had to squeeze a discovery sport into a space where I had to slide myself out the car with barely any room. Thankfully I was back the next day and neither of the cars next to me had moved meaning no risk of damage to my car. Spaces are fine if you have a small car. The only other 3 spaces I could not even have fit my car in unless I exited via the boot.

Maple Parking Edinburgh Meet & Greet - Non Flex

Very good service from this company. My only complaint would be the wait for your car to be delivered back to you. It would be better if the car was parked ready for you instead of the 10 mins sometimes longer for your car to arrive, especially if you are on a late flight. Apart from that no complaints.

Long Stay Express - Non Flexible

It was certainly quick and easy to park the car however on our return we were told the car was in A51 and left to find it on our own. We certainly found the channel marked A and followed the numbers from 1 upwards but then the numbers stopped. Luckily there were assistants driving around the car park that we were able to ask and they pointed us in the right direction but then numbers stopped again. It was a very long walk to find our car and not anymore convenient than where we had originally booked our car into namely ‘Plane Parking Express’ where you drove into the car park and handed your keys over to somebody and got the bus to the terminal. On your return, yes you had to wait for the bus to take you back to the car park but you just crossed over to the little office to collect your keys and your car was ready to be picked up in a bay just around the corner. This new car park in our opinion is now just too big and would have to be very well lit at night. Not for us especially when you see the charges for this new car park.
