East Midlands Short Stay 2
“ A signpost at the turn off into your car park at the junction with Viscount Road would be helpful. Otherwise extremely convenient and quick to use when booked and paid online.” - Rita Howlett
From the north: Leave the M1 at junction 24 and take the fourth exit at the roundabout onto the A453 Ashby Road. Take the third exit at the next roundabout, staying on the A453. Take the second exit at the next roundabout, then turn right into the airport. Take the first exit at the next two roundabouts onto Viscount Road and follow the signs for Short Stay 2 car park.
From the south: Leave the M1 at junction 23a and take the second exit at the roundabout onto the A453 Ashby Road. Take the second exit at the next roundabout, then turn right into the airport. Take the first exit at the next two roundabouts onto Viscount Road and follow the signs for Short Stay 2.
The car park has automatic number plate recognition, so you'll need to give the car park your car registration number when you book. You should take a copy of your booking confirmation to the car park with you.
On arrival, please drive up to the entry barrier and wait for the machine to read your number plate. This can take up to a minute. The barrier will open and you can drive in and park.
If nothing happens, press the button marked "assistance" to speak to a member of staff through the intercom.
Please don't insert your credit or debit card into the barrier at any point or you will be charged again for your parking. Also, don't press the ticket button, as this will stop you being able to gain entry.
From there, just walk to the terminal, which takes 2-3 minutes.
On your return, please walk back to your car and just drive to the exit barrier. It will lift to let you out, which can take up to a minute. If it doesn't, press the button marked "assistance" and a member of staff will let you out.
Please don't insert your credit or debit card into the barrier at any point or you will be charged again for your parking. We advise that you have have a copy of your booking confirmation with you.
The car park is protected by CCTV, entry and exit barriers, a fence and lighting and 24-hour patrols. It holds the Park Mark, a national security award for car parks accredited by the police.
Express Park is suitable for disabled customers as no transfers are needed.
There is no height limit.
Although the car park isn't manned, apart from the security patrols, you can speak to a member of staff 24 hours a day using the intercoms on the entry and exit barriers and the payment machines.
Without doubt the rudest staff and most overpriced car park I have ever experienced. The staff appear to be unable to think for themselves and follow a robotic response. Apparently unable to give out their names, name of the company or contact details so that a complaint can be made! Absolutely unacceptable. I welcome the opportunity for a response to my email to discuss further.

Easy to park, good ANR and close to departures are all plus points.
Will be happy to use again but wanted to park in a Bay for a blue badge holder but could not locate them in the express car park.

Found it confusing to find and ended up in the airport car park which we had to pay £1 to then get back out. When we finally got to the correct car park confusion arose again. It said on the confirmation email it would be number plate recognition to enter the car park. This worked but it also auto issued a ticket . There was no mention on the email about having a ticket so therefore we wondered if we would have to pay again when we got back off holiday. This was not the case but the overall parking experience was far from seamless and I have had much easier experiences at other airports

Easy to find, right by departures and no charge for being a little late (about half an hour) on arrival. Would use again no question
