"It would have been excellent apart from the fact that the camera on entry misread the registration plate. It showed "Y12NVA" instead of "SY12NVA".
As a result on trying to leave the carpark I was requested to pay £435.00!! I queried this with the operator (through the intercom) and was released without further payment being taken.
I have been to similar carparks in the past and never had a problem."

"Brilliant service and car park. Recommended!"May 5, 2016
"only problem was on exit, barrier did not lift took 5 minutes to contact someone"January 18, 2016
"Arrival was satisfactory; number plate recognition worked well; ticket was dispensed promptly.
Departure was appalling! Only one departure lane was in use and there was a queue of vehicles having difficulty leaving. My ticket, together with most other drivers, was rejected by the only working ticket machine and, after speaking to a distant operator, I had to walk 200 metres in the rain to a 'pay here machine' where I inserted my ticket; its was ejected with a message saying, "Thank You, Drive Safely". When I returned to the barrier (and another 10 minute wait in the queue) the ticket was again rejected. I again had to use the machine's call button and speak to the operator who was opening the barrier manually for some drivers. As I waited for the operator, the barrier opened and I left. The problem appeared to be a breakdown in the online booking software at the airport - indeed one driver who had booked and pre-paid online was asked for £75 every time he inserted his ticket!
I have used BCP parking at Gatwick many times, and once before at Southend, without any problems. I was very disappointed with the service at Southend Airport on this occasion."
"Easy parking but didn't read registration on entry so problem getting out!!"December 5, 2015
"Fast and cheap"November 6, 2015
"car park excellent only problem never reads my registration right causing problem when leaving???"October 24, 2015
"Very convenient and fairly priced parking. After we'd parked once we had to leave again and come back later but the staff were very helpful about this and we weren't charged more than our original booking. Highly recommended."October 22, 2015
"It was superb. You simply drive in and find a space (there were plenty available) and then when you land you are literally in your car and on your way home in under 5 minutes. Its only a 3 minute walk to the terminal. We would certainly use again."October 5, 2015
"The booking times shown on the booking were different to the times I requested and were reversed even though the dates were correct. I called to enquire about this and told that although I could not change it I may have to pay a small difference. I carried on with my booking but on return the only way i could leave the parking was to pay a sum of £96. The keypad was only lit at the section telling me to pay. I am awaiting the outcome as to an email I sent the customer service team as to what steps I take next. I did speak to Dominic who said that this will be investigated."October 4, 2015
"Conveniently located, 2 minute walk from car park to terminal. Good value"September 26, 2015
"Worked well."September 25, 2015
"This was the easiest and most straightforward parking we have used at an airport, and we have used a lot in the past!! Well don e Southend!!"September 18, 2015
"Straightforward no hiccups, a little walk from the terminal but not too bad ,best thing for future drop one of you and the bags at the terminal and park by yourself ,save having drag bags as well,with that in mind works best.Car park 1 closest to terminal for show stay only"September 14, 2015
"When the long stay car park is cheap and barely 5 minutes WALK from the terminal, it throws into sharp relief the excessive charges that other airports make for short stay parking or even picking up someone who has just landed. It simply worked well."September 13, 2015
"Great parking in long stay 2 only a two minute walk to airport"July 10, 2015
"Super easy and convenient. Drove just past the terminal and the car park was easy to find, enter and park. The gate gave me a ticket automatically with my registration plate printed on it. It was a short 2 minute walk to the departure and on returning I had to do no more than drive to the gate insert the same ticket and it let me out. Simples!"June 11, 2015
