Recently returned to Birmingham Airport to find car stolen from Carpark 5
Staff assured me the car had not left but call to police it showed as stolen/recovered 5 days before, also that there were problems with CCTV at the time.
NCP deny any fault citing “we do not advertise and cannot guarantee that your car will be secure” despite a full “SECURITY” section on their website listing CCTV, ANPR, 24hr staffed, security fence, barrier controlled. They later claimed to have CCTV footage as“ the vehicle smashed through it with a staff member stood next to it at the time” – no signs of this when it was recovered. Seems the barrier is only to make sure genuine customers don’t leave without paying
They also confirmed they were aware that the region “has recently been experiencing a spate of organised vehicle thefts targeting high performance cars” but obviously keep this quiet.
They have not responded when asked twice why I was not informed at the time of theft so I could sort alternative travel and minimise my expenses
I’m currently taking them to the small claims for the £1k I’m out of pocket!
Do yourself a favour, leave your car on a public road – probably safer…"

"Bus service works well, but be aware the numberplate recognition system that is supposed to recognise you booking and operate the entry/exit barrier did not work in my case which can cause slight delay. Apart from that it is convenient compared to off site parking."

"Great price, quite close to airport so we walked to terminal - took about 5 minutes - although there is a free bus service, and barrier opened automatically on leaving. I would recommend and will definitely use again."

"Car park 5 is within easy walking distance from the departure terminal and we had a slight problem which the staff sorted out very efficiently!"

"Easy to use & gives individual options. I will be using the site again shortly."

"This was one of the best parking arrangements ever!"

February 25, 2018

"We were a little nervous as we have not parked at the airport before, but there were no problems getting in and parked near the bus stop.
As it was 5am we walked to the terminal which took 10 minutes. We could of waited for the bus but it was quite cold.
We returned 3 weeks later and are car is fine. Would definitely use car park 5 again. It was easy to book online and a good price if booked well in advance. The carpark is also easy to locate."

"Leaving the car was easy and the bus service was fine.
On the return journey we waited for a long time for the bus to arrive at the terminal. When it did, it was poorly organised as a lot of customers had ski equipment which couldn't be catered for leaving the alleys blocked, dangerous and difficult for customers together on the bus. The bus was steamed up and the passengers had no idea which car park they were in. The bus driver or bus systems should inform passengers exactly where they are so they know where to get off. Neither system was in place. Passengers were getting off the bus only to find they had got off too early and had to get back on again."

"Signposting on exit could be bit clearer"

"Straight in, bus turned up on time both ways. Sweet as a nut! Thank you."

"For my second booking in a row failed to gain access without having to ring at the barrier to gain access"

"very simple to find, bus to airport, price was reasonable will use this car park again"

"Easy to locate and close to the terminal. Cheaper than a taxi! Highly recommended"

"Arrived at Car Park on 17th November as booked, only to find the barrier was out of action; waited in a queue for ten minutes before a ‘service’ engineer appeared, to let us through manually. Helpful guy who advised us to press the ‘Assustance ‘ button on exit if I experienced any problems.
Although NCP advertised Shuttle buses to Airport entrance every 10 Minutes none were evident after a 15 minute wait and we were forced to walk to the Terminal with 4 cases.
Excellent shuttle service back to Car Park on 2nd December but barrier control would not let me through on Vehicle Reg ID but the person answering the Assistance Button verified this and let us through
The method of pre-booking and making any changes we very efficient, so a few mixed feelings"

"Don't get confused and go into car park 5 instead of 4 as you get charged 4.90. Tried to return my hired car and went into wrong area . Drove around trying to get to the hire car place . The man at the gate told me that I had to pay to get out . Once I'd paid he didn't even check and opened the gate anyway . Which he could have done ."

"Very handy"

"Good signage easy to find car park 5. Plenty of spaces, good signage to help you find your car after journey. Didn't use bus to airport, preferred to walk. Good walkway with lighting, female travelling alone at night. Took 10mins max. Exit worked with reg.plate recognition. Ticket not required. Would definitely use again."

"Booking was easy and followed sat nav to post code set and again ended up at the gates of no1 car park,this have happened before,then noticed sign post for no5 and proceeded to the gate then sat by the gate unable to get in, pressed bell no replies ok we was 10 to 15 minutes early so reversed back and till the hour then tried other side and again had to wait for someone to let us in,I thought this car park had number recognisastion and opened automatically obviously wrong found this experience so frustrating but otherwise ok it's cheap parking."

"It’s a total breeze from booking, confirmation. Could not be simpler, and on arrival at the barrier “ hello Mr Robinson” shuttle bus every 10-15 minutes & minute trip to arrivals or departures"

November 3, 2017

"Booking online worked really well. Number plate recognition issued the ticket on arrival and the barrier opened automatically on leaving. Walk was around 10mins from the terminal building."

October 28, 2017

"Good service on arrival with number plate being recognised straight away. Think access on foot on return could be easier with better signing / more frequent gate accesses, and on leaving it still needed the ticket to be put in even though the sign said pre-booked vehicles would automatically have the barrier raised."

October 27, 2017

"Easy and convenient will always use this service on future trips..
Also like the name and message customer on barrier a nice personal
