"Parking was good. Transport to and from airport was good. Customer service was good. Unfortunately bank account details were taken by a fraudster online. Dont know if it was your company or ryannair through flight booking. But bank account was cleared. It is now in hands of police and fraud department of bank pending enquiries.

"Only worry and anxiety upon arrival to the car park, I could not find any signs for purple parking, only jet parking. At no point on any of the confirmation email instructions does it say JET PARKING.

I hoped jet parking belonged to purple parking but worried the entire holiday that I'd parked in the wrong car park. This happened before and my friend had a fortune to pay to get out a car park which she should not have parked it! So effectively pic double and a fine.

Clearer signs about jet parking and purple parking are required."
