Don’t believe the pricing! Very deceiving. It is £2 for 2hrs (you would do well to get to terminal and back in the one hour “free”!).. then it jumps to £26 for 2hrs 1minute. The “Free Set Down is at the end of the bus route. So you are lucky if there is any space left on the buses when they get to you. A cynic would say to ensure maximum income!

Perhaps a little more clarity re remembering your Zone/Bus Stop number when first dropping car - otherwise an excellent service AND good value: thank you.

Bus took ages, bus driver was terrible, did not know how to drive property, gas and break use was horrendous! Families almost falling over, most zones were full, barrier would not open after we prepaid, too much of a risky service to use, had much easier experience with the private firms used in the past

I was returning to my car last night 050818 at 19:30 approx. to the midterm by the overcrowded shuttle bus. I’d parked in zone M1 last Monday as directed the signs. When I asked the bus driver if he could drop me and my family (2yrd old) there he refused. Then started to rant at me that I shouldn’t have parked there and he doesn’t cover these areas. So we had to get off the bus in a different zone and walk till we reached our parking space with all the bags, pram etc... I’m very unhappy at the way this man spoke to me as we were clearly in the right, as we had followed the signs. And what authority does he have refusing to drop me off at the zone.???? Clearly you have not offered the full shuttle service and would like to know what airport parking will do about this ???
