"Everything was very straightforward. Road signs for the car park were clear and unambiguous. The car park is just two minutes walk from the terminal. Instructions about entry, ticket and exit were easy to follow. It was completely unstressful. Would recommend it."

"I have prebooked before at this carpark and found that procedure very straight forward. I was concerned when our returning flight was delayed more than 24 hours but this proved to be no problem with no extra charge."
