Drive up to the barrier, which will rise automatically. Keep to the left, driving into the car photo booth and pressing the button, so your car can be scanned and photographed for reference.
Remain in the car while one of the team checks you in and directs you to where you need to park. Make sure you keep a note of where you've parked for when you get back. You'll be given a ticket which you'll need to keep safe and you'll need to keep hold of your keys too. Walk to the nearest bus stop to catch the shuttle bus to the terminal. It's included in the price and runs regularly, 24 hours a day.
Catch the shuttle bus back to Airparks from bay R. You'll need to show the driver the ticket you were given when you arrived, so the bus can drop you off in the zone you parked in.
Once you've got back to your car drive to the exit barrier and insert your ticket into the machine. If there are any issues press the help button for assistance.
