Bus was very crowded with luggage and passengers, to be expected, but I felt as a retired professional driver myself, a little more care could have been taken on the corners and roundabouts for the standing passengers, I was concerned for one lady who nearly lost her balance and I was fearful of her falling backwards into the doors whilst moving. Hopefully these doors would have contained her. I also found drivers communication on stops inaudible. Several passengers were asking each other what was said? On a positive note the bus was clean and prompt.

Much prefer on-airport parking. Easy to book, good value for money. Parked in very close proximity to a bus stop and buses ran frequently to and from the terminal building.

Car park layout not so good, we parked and then found the 2 bus stops weren't in use. Far to many people allowed on the bus.

Bus service from and to car parks is not as god as Heathrow or Gatwick. Service seems infrequent. Longer wait than baggage reclaim or passing through passport control.

As expected - no major issues than not being quite sure of the exact bus stop on the return ,rather confusing albeit we had the exact car park number .So guestd should not only check teh COLOUR OF THE PARK i.e. YELLOW and the number of the actual parl area i.e. 12 .BUT MAKE A NOTE OF BUS STOP TOO. All of which is more or less my own fault , still the most important issue MY CAR - it was unmarked & at the exact spot parked THUS I GIVE 10 OUT OF 10 -and very happy over all . MANY THANKS !! S .H. Rolfe .

There is not choice of parking at Stanstead but the long stay is fine, buses run every 15 minutes or so. Never had a problem.

Very convenient, transfer bus to airport terminal. Competitive rate. So helpful on return, when we couldnt locate our car at 2am. We were in wrong zone, they located car from drop off date/time, picked us up and took us to car. Will use again

There were no spaces when we arrived and no one to help, ended up with 20 cars all trying to find a space and people had to park anywhere they could find on crossed out areas and spare gaps around the site so as not to miss their flights. The bus transfer was poorly managed with a very unhelpful and grumpy driver.

My first thought were the prices had increased significantly … there was plenty of spaces and clearly sign posted. The buses were not every 15 minutes. On return it wasn’t clear which bus we should get on as the jet park was at the same stand and on arrival both jet park and long stay were the same service … but not on return.

I'm very happy to have chosen the long stay car park. The bus had just arrived at the stop when I got there, and there were lots of spaces to choose from when parking the car. It was busy on the bus but I was able to get a seat. The driver was very helpful, explaing where to pick up the bus from and to remember the bus stop number. On the way home I waited less than two minutes for the bus to arrive and there was only two of us on the bus, so the driver took us directly to our stops. It honestly felt like a personal service.

Easy to find the long stay park and no problem finding a space. Only a very short wait for a transfer bus (both ways). NPR on exit no queue . Smooth experience start to finish and would use again.

I would have given 5 stars if only I didn't have to wait nearly 45minutes for transfer to terminal! People usually rush to catch the flight so saying "bus transfer every 15 minutes"and when after 30mins you call their office they are unable to tell you when it will actually arrive... Driver did apologise and turned out there was some problem with missing luggage but they could have at least inform waiting passengers as I was satnding with 20 stressed people, worrying they will be late for their flights! I take it was hopefully just a one off and might use again. Just make sure yku get there early enough!

On arrival at long stay car park we waited for transfer for over 45 minutes making us and othe passengers very anxious that we would miss our flight . 3 full busses passed full before we squeezed inside a bus. We and other passenger called the help number with not much help. The main problem was hundreds of people awaiting transfer with too infrequent buses - people not keeping queue as too many people to keep track - people running to bus stops before to jump queue: Total disaster - I wouldn’t use the service again . Smooth journey on way back to be fair

Excellent service and facility. The only bump was driving out of the parking through the bars (identifying the right exit point was a bit confusing...)
