Left my car with this meet and greet service at Stansted, this weekend just gone. When I left my car, it was with an eastern European man with a tracksuit on, why didn’t take any photos of my car, just took my keys and went. So I was rather concerned as to the whereabouts of my car all weekend. When I Came to pick the car up, I walked up to the car park barrier to wait as there was plenty to time. I saw my car being drove at speed along the road. The same driver, with tracksuit on, stopped when I waved him down, and I told him this was my car. He asked me why I was waiting at the barrier, to which I replied I had been waiting a long time. He swore a couple of “f” words at me, threw my keys at me and left my car at the car park entrance. A very unprofessional, third rate service. I use park and ride around once a month on average from Gatwick. I will never be using this service from Stansted again, and will not be recommending it to anyone. I was worried about the whereabouts of my car all weekend.

Avoid. This company are shocking. Customer service was poor. And after receiving my car back, my personal items were missing. Not cheap, not professional, not worth using.

Be wary of using this service if you have an evening flight - you end up paying a lot more than the advertised price! First you have to pay exit charges both ways for the short stay car park, which is at least £5 each way. I actually ended up paying £26 on the return as my flight was delayed and arrived at 2am rather than 11.40pm. The car park phoned to inform me they weren’t a 24 hour service so I could either wait until 4am when they opened again, with my 2 small children, or they could leave the car in the short stay car park at midnight and I could pay the cost. Nowhere in my email did it warn me that was a possibility even though I clearly stated my flight arrival time was nearly midnight. I regret not choosing one of the more expensive meet and greet options as it would have been cheaper in the long run. On the plus side, drop off was quick and easy.

Dreadful experience. Car delivered back to me 30 minutes after I called, covered in dust and bird excrement and with a broken driver's side mirror. No apologies or explanation - just rudeness and aggressive behaviour from one of the delivery drivers and inadequate customer service from their 'Customer Service Manager'. Avoid this company - there are much more professional ones around.

My car came back abused, misused, with the inside covered with mud and with frontal damage. The company deny all knowledge of the accident even though their driver did an inspection when we dropped the car off. Avoid this company at all costs and check the underlying limited company Whole Group Ltd (10481187) on UK Gov Companies House website for more information.
