"The Pink Elephant Car Park at Stanstead Airport was completely faultless. Wish the same could be said of Ryanair."June 3, 2007
"Brilliant airport parking. No problems whatsoever very efficient and good value. Didn't have to hang around wating for a bus at all. Would thoroughly recommend this service. Many thanks."June 3, 2007
"We had a good experience with this carpark. The only slight downside was that we were in zone Z, the furthest section from the entrance,I think. This would be different on other days, obviously.
Something to be pointed out to people is that when they arrive they are requested to insert the credit/debit card they used to book with. We had a bit of a panic as we couldn't remember which card we had used, and whether it was my husband's or mine (slightly different card numbers). This can hold other cars up behind! Maybe this information is to be found on the internet printout, but certainly I had missed it.
On the way home we had to wait a little longer than we might have liked for the ride back to the carpark, and of course being in zone Z5, we were nearly the last off. As I said earlier, this would be different on another day!
However, a good experience overall and I would do it again with Pink Elephant."
"Pre-booking was efficient, and the price we paid very competitive.
Actual service was good, had to wait no longer than 5 minutes for a pick-up bus either way.
Only pity is that the car park is a fair distance from the terminal, therefore always compare long term to mid term prices and if say less than £10 difference (which sometimes it is), I will use the mid-term for expediency."
"simple/good/quick all you need from a car park"June 3, 2007
"Going out was good, but returning we spent half and hour driving round the carpark until we eventually got to our Eblue space. This meant we were further delayed as the trafic was building up on the motorway, so had an awful drive back - we shall probably pay more and go back to the football club next time as it was such a much better service."June 2, 2007
"I have used Stansted Pink Elephant on several occasions and have never had a problem. The directions are clear and the bus transfers efficient and regular. The drivers themselves have always been cheerful and helpful - I would use them again."June 2, 2007
"I was really impressed with Pink Elephant parking at Stansted. The site was easy to find, the buses ran frequently and the cost was extremely favourable. Even though I had not brought the credit card I used to book online and just took a ticket at the gate, the staff on my return processed the ticket with the booking form I had taken and I was out in minutes."June 2, 2007
"Good experience, the only problem was a rather long wait in a huge queue at Stansted Terminal for a bus back to the car park."June 2, 2007
"We used Pink Elelphant Stansted for an early morning weekday flight. The long term car park is quick to access and well signposted as you leave the M11. We arrived at 5.00am and were able to access the transfer bus straight away. We were in the airport terminal within 20 mins. albeit they advise allowing 40 mins. when you book. Returning at midnight there were transfer buses waiting at the terminal and the return was just as quick. Overall a painless experience and at just over £8 per day for a three day stay, good value for money. Just a few points to note:-
Note down your car park zone and reference before you leave your car - this is a massive car park.
If you are elderly or infirm there is no assistance to lift cases on/off the bus or on to the racks when inside. The buses also get full and you may have to stand for the journey."
"Easy to park, short waits for trnsfer buses both ways. No problems"June 2, 2007
"VERY SMOOTH OPERATION, LADY AT EXIT BOOTH REALLY HELPFUL AND CHEERFUL
"Very easy to book, use, reasonably priced. Nice and helpfull staff."June 1, 2007
"Prepaying worked very efficiently and saved about £15.
I still find the Pink Elephant car park a long way from the terminal and there was a queue for the bus at 4.30 am in the morning!"
"I found the parking at Pink Elephant easy and convenient. The only think I would clarify is an explantion of what to do once you arrive. It was not made clear that I could park in any open car park on the long stay site I had assumed a space would be allocated when I collected my ticket. The instructions for collecting my ticket were also a little vague and the number printed on the ticket was totally illegible. However, it was a good first experience."June 1, 2007
"Booking on the internet was easy. We had made a mistake over the date, so had to amend, which we were able to do without difficulty and the staff with whom we spoke/corresponded were helpful and efficient. Everything went well with the parking both when we arrived at Stansted and when we returned. In short, a trouble-free and efficient service."June 1, 2007
"Very simple system, hassle free, clean prompt transport to the terminal. The drivers were cheerful and helpful and added to the overall feeling of streess free parking. I would comment that you should erect side of the road driving reminders toward the exits. Not essential as drivers responsibility but why not add the belt and braces!?
Many thanks, will definitely use again."
"I recieved an efficient and reliable service which was value for money with Pink Elephant and would reccommend the service to friends and family."June 1, 2007
"Very easy. No difficulty at all."June 1, 2007
"Am not sure about this service. We were in the furthest zone when we arrived so lots of driving to park/to airport. Then last to get out on return. As it was 1 am, all you really want is to get to your car and home!"June 1, 2007
"The carpark was very secure, easy to find and fairly regular buses."June 1, 2007
"Well signposted so easy to find. Good simple system for tickets. Friendly and helpful staff. Buses were convenient and easy. Car parks were simply and clearly marked. No problems whatsoever. The trip from the car park to the airport was longer than I expected it to be but I experienced no problems and will accommodate the extra travelling time on another visit."June 1, 2007
"I was very pleased with the parking arrangements for the price paid, it was a very quick and easy service and will definetly be using this again."June 1, 2007
"very good would use again"May 31, 2007
"Very good"May 31, 2007
"This was my 2nd time using this car park. Compared with my first experience the service was not quite as speedy or efficient but still within the timescales given on available information. I realise now that they made a big effort to cope with demand over the Easter period, and did it well. At times when the Airport is less busy the service is not quite to the same level. This would not stop me going back again however."May 31, 2007
I've used your service and pink elephant on three ocassions now. to be honest the service is fine and what I would expect. The only problem is that every time I try to exit the car park, when I have pre paid, my ticket never works in the machine that operates the boom gate!!
Three times now i have had to reverse out of a line of traffic, almost caused an accident and then had to join the long line of cars with people who haven't pre booked!! And then all the person on the gate does is look at my credit card and apologise for the inconvenience!! I know I should have learnt by now but each time I think that, as I have pre-paid, I should be able to exit easily.
Perhaps they should take a look at the service at Gatwick which is brilliant.
Next time I think I will just pay when I exit as I always seem to be in that queue of cars anyway!!
Hope this finds the right people.
Thanks for your time.
