"On my return the machine told me I had to pay £55, which, as I had paid £45 on-line in advance did not please me!
However, the guy manning the 'help' button was very helpful & this problem was soon sorted.
My next return trip will be on Boxing Day so I hope there will be someone on duty in case I have the same problem again."
"Good secure parking. Was able to leave the airport swiftly using excellent exit procedure. Useful after a long flight when I was tired. Only downside was the cost. It was more expensive to pre book . I was charged £45 plays £40 my ticket wanted to charge me at the exit barrier, despite claiming it was cheaper to pre book."November 16, 2015
"Excellent, convenient, no hassle."February 17, 2015
"I found the system easy to use and would have no problem using it again if I fly from Teeside.
However, I did think it was a litle expensive ( I have paid less for 2 weeks at Manchester airport on site parking)
"i like the fact theres plenty room and its near the entrance"June 27, 2011
"I have used the car park on a regular basis on business trips to Aberdeen so no problem with finding it.The only downside was that the infornation desk where you have to get your ticket validated was closed..@ 17:10? I had to go to the barrier & contact an agent through the speakerphone which wasn't very clear when speaking to or receiving reply.Otherwise no probs."April 17, 2009
"Excellent car park, 2 mins from checkin."March 5, 2009

"Very easy to find, ample parking spaces and very close to the terminal building. Quick and efficient ticket validation. Overall a good experience."August 27, 2008
"Easy to find, short distance to walk to departures, easy to pay on return at information point. Generally an excellent service I would use again. Thank you
A lower cost would have been perfect but as all airport parking is expensive this one is comparable"
"When booking with Purple Parking there is no indication that you have to park in the main car park opposite the airport. It would be highly advisable that you have an information board at entrance to the main carpark to indicate that customers who have booked with the various online companies should use the car park. It was obvious that several other customers in cars, when we entered, also had the same confusion!"August 22, 2008
"Parking at Durham Tees Valley was very good and very easy to find.We will definatly use your site again to park."August 6, 2008
"Excelent. No hassle. Just what you want"August 3, 2008
"all was excellent parked near the entrance. Easy to sort vaidating the ticket at end All very quick"July 29, 2008
"Great service, no delays either way. We were travelling with hand luggage only so were off the plane, through the airport and on the road inside 15 minutes. You were also the cheapest I could find on the internet for this airport. I will certainly use you again."July 25, 2008
Iwill use your service again.
"Absolutely no problems. Collect ticket on entry, park car, go on holiday. Return, take ticket to Information Desk with your reference details. Ticket verified and off home you go! The only problem I had was remembering what row I parked."June 27, 2008
"Very pleased, all straight forward, highly recommend you to friends. Was nervous about airport parking as never done it before, all was explained via booking and all ran according to plan, couldn't have been easier."June 27, 2008
"All very fine and simple - savings very worthwhile and the time taken to book and pay is certainly no longer than the additional time it would have taken to pay on my return. At the end of a trip I am generally tired and wanting to get home - pre booking makes this very simple and the saving each trip will pay for a months internet access! I will use your service again - probably 6 to 8 times per year. Many thanks!"June 25, 2008
"price ok, never recieved confirmation e-mail regarding booking, sent e-mail requesting same but no responce ? ticket machine asked for considerable ammount on our return even though payment hade been made two weeks prev, could do without this hitch on arrival back from trip."June 22, 2008
"Only issue was on arrival a bit confused as the booking says park and ride and the only car park was the one directly opposite the airport. Would help if it was made more clear on confirmation"June 20, 2008
"Car Parking is easy at Durham-Tees Valley Airport. It is a small airport and most of the available parking is immediately adjacent to the Terminal. There is some off-site parking, bookable on-line, but even this is only 5 minutes walk from the Terminal. I would use facilities adjacent to the Terminal if you have heavy luggage. On-line booking is competively priced, and cheaper than if you just roll up and park for more than a few days..and it can even be quicker having your parking ticket validated at the information desk, than queuing for the machines.
There is however no covered parking at this Airport, and although the car-park is barrier controlled, it may not be quite so secure as some airport parking. However, I've never had any problems."
"Parking is very simple and convenient. What is not spelled out anywhere is that you must take you're prepaid parking voucher to the information desk in the terminal to validate your parking ticket before picking up your car and departing. There are no humans at the lot exit to deal with your prepaid voucher."June 13, 2008
"This must be one of the nearest car parks to any airport.....and is actually the airport's own long stay. Take a ticket when you go in and keep it saft. On your return journey present the ticket with you printout from Purple Parking to the Information Desk. They will "process" your ticket and return it to you. Simply pop it in the ticket machine at the car park exit and that's it!
As car park is so small there are no row/section markings, so take note of where you park! Cost is good value compared to alternatives (however feel Airport Parking in general has become a licence to print money!)"
"Used this car parking. Really good. Arrived-parked-trolley handy-walked 2 mins into terminal.
On return took ticket to info desk - gave code - they validated - was out of the airport in 10 mins (and thats with 2 young children!!).
would recommend to anyone.
Only comment is Purple parking (who we booked through) could do with putting up signs telling people just to park in main carpark as we were confused we had to take a "payable" ticket through barrier, not realising until we phond that the airport wou;d just validate it on production of our booking ref."
"This car parking was excellent. Right outside the arrivals/departure hall. Couldn't be more convenient."March 28, 2008
"I found the parking facilities at Durham Teeside excellent. I found dealing with purple parking an easy experience. Our flight was delayed 3 hours landing at 11.10pm and found the girl at the information desk waiting for us. Would certainy use the same company again."March 2, 2008
"The first time we have used Durham Tees Valley Airport,normally we go to Newcastle.The parking was fantastic, just outside the Terminal Building.Obviously because it is a tiny Airport it is so much easier to get in and out.As we were driving away last evening we said that we would let you know how easy and pleasurable an experience it was.Lo and behold there is a questionaire to be filled in."February 19, 2008
"excellent price compared to pay on departure price and very convienient straight in front of terminal"February 17, 2008
"Easy and quick service.Would recommend to others."February 17, 2008
