Arrival procedure

The car park has automatic number plate recognition, so we'll ask you for your car registration number when you book. The machine at the entry barrier will read your number plate and give you a ticket with your booking reference and registration number on. Keep this ticket safe, as you'll need it when you come back. Then just drive in and park.
If the machine doesn't give you a ticket, you'll need to press the help button to speak to the operator. You'll be asked to confirm your details, and then you'll be let in. You should have a copy of your booking confirmation with you.

Info

Return procedure

Just drive to the barrier and put your ticket in the slot. The barrier will lift to let you out. If it doesn't, or if you don't have a ticket, just press the help button. You'll be asked for your booking reference so you should have a copy of your booking confirmation with you.

Info

Security

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.

Additional information

Due to the building of a carriageway, the M1 junction closest to the airport and the A453 will be closed between 20:00 and 06:00. An 11-mile diversion will be in place and will be signposted, however anyone using the route should allow an extra half hour for their journey.

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.

"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"

"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."

"Car park located close to airport but when we arrived the automatic number plate recognition did not recognise our number we then spent 5 minutes waiting for assistance. We were finally let in and advised to take a ticket and ask for assistance on return.

Upon return at midnight again had to wait a while for assistance as they could not find our booking as apparently Purple Parking do not always pass the details on.

So in summary well located to departures but arrivals and departures process was not good."
