So difficult to find!! Even using my iphone. We called the company, so rude. Hanged up on me even when I was lost. Late for my airplane now!

Fine on arrival but rubbish pick up. Told 10-15 waited 20. Then when arrived told we were waiting for others 30 mins hanging out in a disgusting car park. And driver extremely unhelpful when we asked what was happening do not recommend

Our car key was taken from us when we arrived at the Car Park and we got straight onto the Mini Bus for a 5 minute ride to the terminal building. We returned at 1am - a quick call and the mini van was there to take us back to our car within 10 minutes. Fantastic service thank you.

Called them as asked on the card yesterday, just as passing through baggage claim as we only had carry on bags. Got to the E bay & saw the bus pulling away, the guy had said the bus was on its way for us. We waited another 15 minutes, no further bus appeared, called them again to say we were waiting, another 15 minutes & the guy said there were 2 buses running, we said where are they then? Called yet again, we had now been waiting 40 minutes, & a guy said he would come straight away, which he did, a nice guy with a beard, who tried to explain why we had been left there, but we were not happy. Altogether we had been 55 minutes by the time we arrived at our car, & when we did arrive the other bus was just sitting there! When this was Central Car Storage we had excellent service, a family run business, always polite & on time. This is not acceptable at all, we will not be using this shower again.

From our recent holiday Short Run was a great start, easy smooth book in and fast service being so close to the airport and exactly the same on our return. If we fly from Luton again we will definitely use again.

I booked ShortRun because of its proximity to Luton airport but I hadn't expected such a superior service. Drop-off was easy (I did this at 4am) and a mini bus dropped us off at the airport. Upon my return, I called ahead for a pick-up and was told a mini-bus was already waiting which was great! The car park is a 5 minute drive away so I imagine waiting for the bus wouldn't take very long. Staff are courteous, friendly and helpful. I will certainly use this service again. Everything was seamless.

Brilliant. Service was so efficient, pleasant staff, no hanging around. I left a bag in my car they even offered to bring it to the airport. Fantastic....will never use mid term parking again and faf around waiting for a bus. Thank you

Always dubious about off airport parking but picked this one after reading the reviews and was delighted. The journey took about 30 mins into the airport at 6am due to the traffic so leave yourself more than the ‘5 minutes’ journey time to catch your flight as Luton airport is a mess! Pick up was a breeze and they held the driver for me so I didn’t have to wait. Very happy and will be using again. Thank you

Easy to find & system was efficient & cheaper option than other car parks. Too good to be true howeve. The huge, deep scratch all along the passenger side that i found on returning to collect my car after my trip means i will never use this car park again. I know it wasn't there beforehand, i look after my car & pay attention to details like this. Gutted.

Booked through purple parking. But service from short run was impeccable. Would gladly use them again

I usually book the priority parking at Luton airport. This time it seemed expensive. I looked into the other options, and ShortRun looked a good choice at more than half the price. The site was easy to find, the staff were friendly and polite, we didn't wait at all to be transferred to the airport, and when we returned they had sent a shuttle just to collect us. They looked after our car, and we were very pleased. It was very good value for money, quick, super easy and just complete hassle free. Thanks guys - we will definitely be using you again!

Brilliant, not the cheapest parking I've ever used, but we were in our car within 15 mins of ringing them. Car park is close to the airport so drop off is quick and mini bus was clean and comfy, appears to be 2 buses running so wait is never too long. The staff were very polite, efficient and helpful, I will definitely use them again if flying from Luton, thanks

Booked ShortRun parking because we needed to be on our way quickly after landing back at Luton. We had to wait 35 minutes to be picked up and were given no convincing reason why that was when we phoned several times to check where our transport was. Will not be using again.

Carly and Tom Bingham

They were fantastic. Arrived - handed our car in hassle free. When we got home, greeted by a happy smiley lady who was waiting for us! Straight off the plane, straight onto the bus. Our car was placed ready to go - we literally just had to get in a drive forward. Great! Defo use again!

Seemed hard to find reliable parking when reading online reviews so I picked shortrun as they seemed the best of a bad bunch. No idea why they had poor reviews, service was quick and smooth. Dropped of straight away to the airport (about 5/10 mins journey) and collected within 10 minutes on our return, car ready and waiting for us. Would definitely use again.
