East Midlands Stress Free Meet and Greet Parking reviews

Our average review score for East Midlands Stress Free Meet and Greet Parking is 2.5 from 24 reviews.

"It does worry me when I see the scathing reviews on here as most are genuine people with real off-putting stories of their experiences, the good news is mine is a good review. We always arrive early as I am the most impatient person who explodes when things go wrong through incompetence, we pulled into the 'shed' pressed the button and the chap on the other end asked if it was the correct surname, I confirmed this and he told me which lane to park in, I dropped off the keys in the office and picked up my ticket then walked into departures. On return again straight from arrivals into the office where there was one other person in front of me, I picked up my keys and instructed as to where my car was, got in and drove off. Hopefully the bad experiences won't happen to me but I have used this service at various airports for years and don't book any other, I have in the past had a chap meet me and drive my car away but with the horror stories of cars parked on industrial estates I do believe these are more professional even if their compound they take the car to sounds dusty, my car had rain spattered dust marks but not particularly bad and had I not read other reviews of cars being filthy then would have commented about it. I will continue to use them as I don't like the drive to a park some distance away then the bus back to the terminal which is one cheaper option."

"Meet and greet East Midlands. APH come on! Worse parking I've ever done. There are two barriers and one operator and one long que. the cctv doesn't have registration recognition so adds to the frustration. I'd never park here again. It's close but the wait is not worth it.."

"Arrived at 05.00 in the morning it was busy, but parking was very easy. I was in the departure terminal within 5 minutes of leaving the car. On arrival back after two weeks away the collecting of the keys to leaving the airport was so easy. I have used this service twice now and both times its been exellent and very good value for money. Will use it again next year."
