Help-me-Park Meet & Greet - Non Flexible
This product cannot be cancelled or amended and once booked cannot be refunded.
Phoned 20 mins before arriving at airport then had to wait 40 minutes before they arrived which was bad enough but when I got home my car arrived quite promptly followed by a police car with its lights flashing. It had been following my car because of the way it was been driven, they had flashed the driver but he either ignored them or didn't see them. By the time the police got out of their car they had done a police check on my car, they then questioned the driver. As a female travelling on her own I use these companies so that I feel safer, I would never use them again.

Do not use. It took one and a half hours for someone to answer the phone on a cold February morning.

After reading many reviews I booked parking with Help me Park. It wasn’t the cheapest offer available at the time however the reviews were good. Sadly the service we received was not at all up to standard. On dropping our car off we had to wait for just over an hour in the cold and rain. When I tried calling them to find out what was happening I was placed on hold with no one talking to me. This happened more than once. No apology whatsoever and no acknowledgement that we had been waiting that long. This morning we collected our car and having been told that it would be with us in 10-15 mins we waited for just over an hour - again in the cold and rain with no apology for keeping us waiting. Quite honestly after a long haul flight the last thing anyone wants to do is to hang around. They say not to call until you have collected your baggage but with having to wait around for long lengths of time you are best calling once you are off the plane and waiting for your baggage. Certainly won’t be using again
