"This was the first time I'd used carparking at the Airport and I was very pleased with how simple it turned out to be. I saved a fortune on taxis and got the parking for £50 for the 2 weeks - paying 'as you go' would have costed over £120. The car park is just a few minutes from the terminal and the shuttle ran every 15 minutes. There were plenty of spaces available.
I will book this service again at such a competetive price."
"Even though the car park was very full I was able to find a space in about 5 minutes. The car park is quite close to Terminal 3 so I could walk to it in about 10 mins which was very useful. Leaving the car park was really easy, just press the help button at the exit and give them your order number, it's as easy as that."August 2, 2010
"Cheap, safe, easy to use and regular transfers which take no more than 10 mins to get you to terminal 1 and 3"August 2, 2010
"Great Service. I paid on line took a ticket and parked. When I got back I thought I may encounter problems but I pressed the help button on the barrier as instructed and gave out my booking ref no and the barrier was raised.
Shuttle bus wait was around 5 mins both ways and the car park is right on the airport. Would highly recommend especially if you get a deal like I did."
"The whole process was very straightforward and there were no issues."August 2, 2010
"Good price and dead easy to use. Right next to terminal one but don't be tempted to walk it. Footpaths are a bit confusing(lots of roundabouts) and not heavy suitcase friendly. Buses are regular and user freindly."August 2, 2010
"really good service and when we came home we had left our paperwork at the hotel but the gentleman on at 02.20am in the morning was really really helpful and explained what we should do and confirmed my details"August 2, 2010
"very good value and easy to use."August 2, 2010
"Simplicity in itself. Hassle Free"August 2, 2010
"A very uneventful experience, just what you need when you land at 1.00 am!. Didn't see any shuttle buses on departure or return, but it was close enough to walk from the terminal so not too concerned. Good price too."August 2, 2010
"The parking was fine for me although my partner was told that if she had not have pre-booked there would be NO space. Luckily she had pre-booked and was directed to short stay. Heaven help those who hadn't - too little parking capacity in high season methinks.
Secondly the signposting to the exit for Long Stay inside the airport is lamentable. Lots of signs direct the unwary visitor to "Car Parking", but nothing directs one to "Shuttle Bus to Long Stay Car Park". It took me 15 minutes to get out to find the correct exit - and I know Manchester airport and speak English."
Everything went very smoothly."
"Good price for good airport for terminal 3"August 1, 2010
"I'm so pleased I pre-booked my parking. The long stay car park was full when I arrived, so I was directed to park in the short stay, which was really straight-forward and convenient. On exit, the very helpful lady on the intercom simply asked for my booking ref number and let me through the barrier.
I'll certainly book through you again. Thank you!"
"A little difficulty finding somewhere to park, but expected at this time of year with it being the height of the holiday season.
Apart from this, close to airport and quick pick up both ways. Will definitely use again. It was a reasonably price for 5 days.
My Visa Card was not recognised on leaving, but on quoting my booking number the barrier was lifted."
"Everything was fine and went smoothly. Particularly close to Terminal 3 where I was flying from, seemed a little further away from Terminal 1."July 31, 2010
"Good price. Car park within walking distance, but very good bus service as well. I worried about having to talk to someone at the exit barrier, but it was fine and didn't take long."July 31, 2010
"Very good service and a great price. I normally get a taxi to the airport as I only live 10/15mins away but as I was going for two days I booked the parking. It was much cheaper than taking a taxi and in was really easy to use so I will do it again.
I walked from the car park to the terminal but quite enjoyed this."
"Difficult to find a space available. At least with a manned car park, you can be directed to where the spaces are instead of wasting 10mins+ driving round to find somewhere."July 30, 2010
"Bit of a free for all, no organisation, difficult and stressful finding a space, once found the buses ran regular to and from the terminals."July 30, 2010
"Used the Manchester long stay car park for one week holiday. The carpark is conveniently located to the airport, bus service is good, so will use it again if the price stays reasonable."July 30, 2010
"This car park was easy to find and simple to use. We booked online and simply had to insert the same credit card we used to make our booking into the barrier machine at the entrance. We parked there for 4 days and on leaving just had to press the help button on the barrier machine and give our booking details to be let out. Simple!!
We waited a grand total of 1 minute at the bus stop before we were picked up and the shuttle bus dropped us pretty close to the departures building. On our return we went to the same bus stop and waited for the bus to come which said "long stay parking" think it was number 3, got on and it took us back to the car park in about 5 mins.
There are various bus stops around the car park and the one which we got on/ off was literally 5m from our car. The car park was well lit and felt very safe.
The one thing which they could do better was make it a bit clearer on the bus stop (near the terminal) what number bus you need to get on - although they do have the names of various car parks on and you just need to look for the one which says long stay."
"The directions to the car park were very easy to follow,and although the car park was well populated
we found a parking space.On returning to the car park and driving to the exit, the intercome was answered
straight away and on giving our reference number, the barrier was raised and we were on our way. Very good service."
"I arrived at Terminal 2 dropped my wife off with the luggage then drove across to the Terminal 1 and 3 car park. At that time it was raining heavily but I only had to wait about 5 minutes for the shuttle bus which took me back to terminal 1. I then walked back across to Terminal 2. When we arrived back at the airport I walked back across to the car park and collected the car before collecting my wife and the luggage. The experience was hassle free and I would certainly use the service in the future."July 28, 2010
"Very full but space found.Good bus servive to and from car park to terminal"July 27, 2010
"I found this car park very safe and secure for my car while I was away on holiday, but when I did arrive back at 4am knackered from traveling all night I found that no internal bus would drop me and my family off at terminal 1&3 car park from the Terminal 2 Building. We had to walk to terminal 1&3 building and catch another shuttle bus to the car which is a good 20 minute walk when pushing 4 large suitcases.
In short the car was secure for a very reasonable price but the shuttle service to and from the car was very poor and I was not happy at all!!!!!!"
"QUICK,FAST COST EFFECTIVE WAY OF PARKING AT MANCHESTER AIRPORT.AIRPORT PARKING SHOP A PLEASURE TO USE AND WILL AGAIN."July 26, 2010
"All very straightforward. Minimal delays, coach easy to find on the way back."July 26, 2010
"Car park was only a 5 minute walk to the terminal, no need for the bus if the weather is fine. Used the bus goiing in to the terminal, only a 5 minute wait, walked on our return. Great price and will use again."July 25, 2010
"Easy to use, but finding a spot can be difficult. Good price in relation to offsite locations.
Lack of footpaths from terminals to car park is a draw back as the wait for transfer busses can be lengthy and from terminal it isonly a short walk."
