Worst customer service ever! Avoid!!! Wish I’d seen other reviews before I booked! Departure was ok but return was absolutely awful waited 40mins with 3 young children at 11pm at night, took 3 calls before driver arrived. Thankfully NCP bus allowed us to shelter from wind and rain. The driver was so rude and threw our luggage over the car park 50meters from car instead of at car. The guy in portacabin was just as bad and said it wasn’t his company so he didn’t care. My advice use NCP bit more expensive but lovely drivers and regular buses waiting at stands!

World wise after event

Parked at another car park since and no issue. Will advise people not to use this company ever, if you like you car on my return I found my car to be damaged and I’d fortunately taken some pictures before I left so thought was straight forward Not They are unwilling accept any responsibility be sent pictures spoken to to them many times, cost me £90.00 in coach works plus cost recorded delivery of paperwork as was legally told to do so as they also stopped accepting my emails. Been in hospital so other issues so not given up been advised not to let it go as they should not get away with it and try basically to wear you down, got concrete evidence so advise everyone take pictures of your car of every angle secures any issue. So do yourself a favour and park elsewhere.

Car park was easy to find following the directions given. The staff were helpful, friendly and polite. The bus trip was smooth and straightforward, with a pleasant helpful driver. The bus assigned within minutes of my return flight to transport me back to my car which was sitting waiting for me. Would definitely recommend and will use again.

On arrival all was good and we were transferred to the terminal quickly. The worst was the return. We've followed the instructions and called the site to let them know we're ready for transfer to the car park. It took 40 minutes in freezing cold with children and 3 phone calls to get the return bus. That was the worst experience from all the car parks I've used so far in Scotland. All you hear is: 'wait at stand 7' bus is on the way' which was obvious lie. You look at other bus stands and different cheap operators managed to transfer their customers 3 times in the same time. This shuttle should be regular service but it is not. Very disappointed.

Excellent bus service. Friendly and efficient staff. Car park a little tricky to find in the dark so allow time to locate in these circumstances.
