"It's a car park - what more can one say?
The car was where I left it and in one piece when I returned so I'm very happy.
The check-in, check-out procedure was not quite as easy as anticipated - I took the paperwork with the barcode printed on it with me, but there was no facility to scan it at the barrier. A press of the "Call for Help" button suggested I insert my creditcard and this seems to have been OK. A check of my statement will reveal whether I have been charged correctly and that no charges were made other than the pre-booking fee. Note that this is an open-air car park and not the multi-storey one and is about 10 minutes walk from terminal 3 and that the pavements are not really wheeled-case friendly - there are few dropped curbs and the pavement doesn't appear to go all the way. Clearly you are meant to take the shuttle bus."
"Good services. Regular bus. Good."July 2, 2012
"Brilliant. Experienced a little difficulty when entering the car park - due to the very early hour and poor eyesight but otherwise I would definitely use this Car Park again.
Would like to add that the staff were extremely helpful and very friendly too. Unfortunately my car's battery was flat on my return.I did try contacting the helpline but, at 10p per minute for the call and many "options", I gave up. I did however manage to flag down an Airport Coach Driver. He was extremely helpful and, in no time at all, arranged for an on-site AA Mechanic to attend my vehicle. The Mechanic arrived in around 10mins and he had it sorted in no time. Both the driver and the mechanic were fantastic - really helpful, friendly and courteous.
I have rated this Car Park a 5 as the staff have excellent customer care skills."
"Yes the parking was excellent we had no problems getting in to the airport. The only thing I would suggest was a trolley park within the car park then one doesn't have to walk back to the airport. Otherwise everything fine."June 29, 2012
"overall good experience, relatively simple and straightforward."June 16, 2012
"Very good situated car park within a few minutes bus transfer to the terminal. Easy sign posted with clear directions.
If I could suggest an improvement it would be to have pedestrian walkways through the cars to the bus stops. This would stop people trying to squeeze suitcase alonside your car and scratching them!
All in all, would recommend"
"Great choice. No need to queue for the parking machine to pay for ticket at the end. Close to the terminal. Just stick your credit card in on the way in and way out. Perfect!"June 12, 2012
"If I had completed this when I left the car park on my return from holiday last night I would have said Iwas very happy with the parking service at Manchester Airport. However, on checking the recipt I was given when I put my card in to exit the car park this morning - which I thought was a recieptfor my pre-paid reservation - I find that I have been charged a further £27 andthat my car somehow miraculously only entered the car park at 12:26 yesterday when in fact it entered at about 11:15am on 26th May and had not moved. At the time it was supposed to have entered the car park yesterday (2/06/12) both the keys and myself were sat in the sunshine of Santa Ponsa Majorca. I will be takning this up with Essential Travel who I think the actual booking was with when their phone lines are open. It has made think again about using airport parking as this has soured what was, I thought, a good effeicient way to start and end my holiday."June 3, 2012
"EASY TO FIND,NO PROBLEMS AT ALL,WILL USE AGAIN."June 2, 2012
"Easy to find the car park, no problems with entry and the bus arrived after 10 minutes. Return journey just as efficient, bua arrived in 10 minutes and exit from the car park with no problems (just put in the card used to book) Will definitely use again"May 21, 2012
"Very satisfactory."May 14, 2012
"Very good, so much so I will even fill in this review. The car park was within 5 mins of T1 and the entry and exit was straight forward, I will continue to use this service every time I fly out of Manchester airport in future as I was very satisfied with the car park"May 9, 2012
"It served our purpose perfectly. No problem finding a space and not long to wait for bus, with cheerful driver too."April 30, 2012
"Used this service a few times very easy to access buses running all the time trouble free and close to terminals"April 30, 2012
"No problems. Nice to have a tarmacked surface rather than parking in a field! Excellent proximity to T1 and bus service very prompt. Could do with more EXIT signs on road or posts. Will use again."April 30, 2012
"I booked at the long stay carpark for T1. Good journey on departure on holiday. On return to UK, I thought the driver was unhelpful as it was dark and very wet, making it hard to see the areas and row numbers in the park. He could have called out the area colour and rows??? Some passengers, including me a woman on my own, were anxious about missing their stop. On way out, the machine wouldnt accept my credit card to confirm pre-payment. Neverthless, prompt reply from buzzer to lift barrier."April 28, 2012
"Fine. Reasonably close to the terminal and good bus service."April 27, 2012
"good service,bus very quick"April 23, 2012
"Have been using comparison site for many years.
We used to park off Airport as prices were so high.
Now thru your service have found & used on Airport parking for only a few pounds more.
Would recommend to anyone
Easy to find, good bus service, reasonable price.
One small complaintis I always have to buzz staff for admission as bar code does not seem to work."
"Carpark was easy to find got in easy there was lots of spaces and the bus came quickly both departing and returning very good overall"April 12, 2012
"Very good."April 10, 2012
"hi we use this car park often and are very pleased with it in every way possible A****************"April 8, 2012
"I flew from Terminal 1 at Manchester airport. The car park was ideally positioned to the terminal, i had planned to get the free bus service, but i decided the walk to terminal 1, which as a 3 minute walk away...Excllent!!"March 6, 2012
"this parking was simple to book and we entered by using the credit card we had booked with. Easy.
We parked well into the site so we could sit and watch the frequent bus arrive and then stroll to one of the many bus stops. the driver was polite and smooth driving and we were in the terminal in very few minutes.
on return I had forgotten where we had parked (it was a good holiday) but because of our parking had time to look (even at night) and alighted close to our car. As we left the site I re-entered my credit card which was not recognised. I pressed the Help button gave my name last 4 digits of card and booking ref. and the gate was immeadiately raised to let me out. Very stress free in spite of the small hicough and very good value."
"The peace of mind, cost saving and convenience of pre booking parking was the motivation to book through you. The transaction was fairly simple and confirmation of the booking was very promt.
My only negative comment would be that the instructions on howto operate the barriers and directions to the specific car park were not immediately clear. Not as issue as it turned out, but did cause me some nerveousness on initial arrival and departure."
"Great access to carpark. Bus to Terminal 3 was a couple of mins transfer and was at the stop when I got out of my car and was waiting for me when I arrived back!
Would recommend and use again."
"Easy to find. Machine didn't accept card used to book, but through in seconds after pressing help button. Bus arrived as we got to the stop within car park, and same on return."February 25, 2012
"only problem was on entry machine wouldn't read my card.Operator sorted it out without any further holdup."February 24, 2012
"Excellent Service"February 18, 2012
"After comparing prices and location @ Manchester Airport we decided on the long stay at T1/T3 and were not disappointed. The directions were easy to understand as was the instructions of how to gain entry. I lost the card used to get in the carpark whilst we were away but that wasn't a problem as on arriving at the barrier i pressed the help button gave my confirmation number and the barrier raised.
All in all a good experience."
