Excellent transfer service and reasonable pricing for 4days parking. Only one issue I had was upon returning, once car was collected the key fob with bar code needs to be kept so that barrier on exit can be opened once scanned. Whilst that works fine no mention was made of it and the key fob could be disposed of prior to arriving at barrier, thus causing a problem.

Airpark service was beyond my expectations. From begging it was very smooth, no problem with finding Airparks using Google map. On the way back we got bus from bay M which is literally outside of departure terminal. I will definitely use Airparks again. Thank you!!!

Easy to find, fast check in and check out. Our only “negative “ was a surly bus driver when we arrived at Luton and were waiting to get the bus to the return car park. He saw us running with child and cases to get the courtesy bus, waited until we were there ready to get on the bus and then shut the door in our faces and drove off!!! Charming! Otherwise a great service .

Everything went like clockwork excepting a small hiccup on collecting our car. The screen advised us to collect our car from area N . A staff member helped us to find it in H when we could not find in N. Our ticket seemed to have slight indentations on N and H; hence the confusion but only a slight delay involved

I like that the car park is very easy to find, coming from M1 J9. Check-in and check- out is all automated so you must take your confirmation email with the reference. Buses leave every 20 minutes and we arrived with pleny of time to catch the 6.40 bus but this bus got full very quickly and left early. Instead of providing an additional bus (which was already there), there were a large number of people now left waiting for the next bus at 7am. The journey time is quoted as 10 minutes and at 7am we just about did it in 10 minutes. It might be longer if there is traffic.The bus driver we had was a little rude, in my opinion and did not appreciate that we now had to rush to departures. Luckily the queue at security was short but you can never predict this. Coming back, keep hold of the tag on your key as you will need this to raise the automated barrier. If you book this car park, be prepared to wait up to 35 minutes for the transfer in case the bus leaves early.

Good and secure but confusing as to where to go for the bus, only give a ticket to get keys back. Not sure which row my car was on as didn't see the screen with the letter on and N was not visible from the ticket station. Not told you need to use the key fob bar code to get out of the car park Overall good car park but further info needs to be sent out, just a quick email on what to do when you get back... not forgetting you may be tired so forget. Having an email with the info on would be great. The directions to the car park email was great and very informative.

We are really pleased with the Airparks service. It's so easy and you never have to wait too long for the bus to take you to or collect you from the airport. The automated system is quick and easy to use, but there is help on hand if you need it.

Some travellers have had trouble finding Airparks with their sat navs, so we suggest you take our directions into account. If you choose to use a sat nav to get to the car park, make sure you use the full address to avoid getting lost.

On arrival: We recommend that you follow the directions given to get to the car park, but if you still want to use a sat nav, you should enter the full address and postcode to avoid getting lost.

Pull up at the entrance barrier, which will lift after a few seconds (all cars coming into the site are recorded on CCTV). Park in one of the arrivals bays, then head into the check-in building. You check yourself in using the machines - it's a very quick process, though you'll need to have a copy of your booking confirmation with you. There's a member of staff on hand to help if you need it

The machine will give you a tag, which you should attach to your keys, and a ticket, which you should keep safe as you'll need it later. Drop your keys in the box with the same number as the lane you've parked in. Your car will be parked for you, so just head to the waiting area and hop on the bus to the airport. You'll need to show your ticket to the driver.

If you have sports equipment or lots of luggage, you may need to wait for a bus with more space during busy times, so make sure you leave yourself plenty of time to get to the airport.

Grove Road,
Slip End
LU1 4BZ

Returning home

The shuttle buses back to the car park leave from bay M right outside the terminal. You'll need to show the ticket you were given at check-in to the driver.

Make your way to the check-out shelter and follow the instructions on the key dispenser - again, it's a very quick process. The machine will give you your car key back and show you on the screen where your car is.

Then just drive to the exit barrier - you'll need to insert your ticket to scan the barcode attached to your keys, and then the barrier will lift. If you lose your ticket, you'll need to go to reception, answer some security questions, then show a photo ID, so make sure you have one with you.

If you return early, you will need to contact the car park directly to give them as much notice as possible. If you don't, there may be a delay before you get your car back. We can't offer you a refund for any booked parking that you don't use.
