By far and away the worst airport parking I have used. I usually allow half an hour for transfers but here it was an hour on the way in and 45 mins on the way back. Our trip was in August so it was busy but they had not geared up the buses to cope with this. They advertise 15 minute intervals but the first bus was full and we were left behind (along with c30 other customers). I would have expected them to send another bus quickly but it was over 30 minutes before the next. 4 buses came and went which were set-down only. Very stressful waiting and wondering. No staff on hand or any information. By the time we got on a bus the queue was enormous, many people were left behind and would have waited even longer. It is over 15 mins from the back of the carpark (only open zone when we arrived) to the airport. On the way back we waited the advertised 15 mins but the transfer took another 30 mins because there is one bus which visits every stop and also serves another carpark, so in the zone we were in that is a 30 minute trip. 2 weeks' parking was £120, they can afford a few more buses for that! So bad that I have been put off using Stansted airport and for next trip I have changed our flights to Gatwick.

We booked the Long Stay car park at Stansted for our break away. The booking was easy and when we entered the car park it recognised the number plate . It told us to go to Zone G which we did. However we drove round and round , together with another 3 cars and there were no spaces available! we drove out and into the zones opposite and again driving round and round, still no spaces! This was all very stressful and not a good start to our holiday. Eventually a marshall appeared and we stopped to ask him why there were no spaces - he just told us to go to Zone L. This needs monitoring more closely! On our return we waited for the bus and for some reason it drives round the car park in no particular order. Just before we were due to get off, it left that car park and went into the Jet Park! Why?? We went round there and then back into the long stay and our bus stop. The whole thing was very disorganised and we will not be booking it again!

Quick outgoing pickup. But returning bus was very full and our bus stop was the last so 15 minutes can be pretty elastic.

Easy to book and find. Only slight problem was that our exit ticket was not accepted in the machine at the barrier. The help button accessed assistance and we were able to exit.

quite often use this Car Park, but this time only a 2 stars as I'd prepaid and I was asked for £118 to leave. not what you need after a long day travelling. only time it's happened but you don't need it with other cars behind, all other exits down/being worked on, and the only gate working not registering you've already paid. not sure it's the clearest telling which exits to use either if you have prepaid.
