How do I get to and from the Airport/ Port/ Station?
Many of the car park locations we offer are based at airports, train stations, ports or similar locations. Along with the parking service, a transfer may be included. For example, at an airport a shuttle bus may be supplied to drop you and your luggage to the airport terminal. A transfer service is dependent on each individual car park. Some of the options are:
- Shuttle transfer to and from the airport/port
- Meet Greet service at the airport/port (Valet parking)
Please note that some car parks may offer one of the above services or both; sometimes at the same price and sometimes with an extra charge. The shuttle bus transfer is normally included in the price but, if there are any additional costs for transfers, the price will be calculated automatically when you choose your transfer option on the booking form (if there is a choice).
Some car parks may not provide a transfer in which case your options would be:
- Public transport
- No transfer as the location it is servicing is within walking distance or it is not needed for the type of parking you require.
Detailed instructions for a transfer service operated by each car park will be provided during the booking process and also with your booking voucher when it is offered.
For airport parking, depending on the transfer type offered, in general you should follow the following guidelines:
You should go straight to the car park, park your car, and then the shuttle bus will take you to the airport/port. Please check if there is a timetable or if the shuttle bus operates 'on demand', in which case you will just need to provide your estimated arrival time at the car park and keep the operator informed of any changes. You should keep your booking voucher with you for the return so that you have the shuttle bus timetable (if applicable). However, many car parks require you to just call them once you have collected your luggage in order to send the shuttle bus to pick you up.
Meet & Greet
Meet Greet Service Meet Greet Service is becoming more and more popular as a way of getting to the airport/port and some car parks actually operate this transfer service exclusively. You will need to provide times for the driver to meet you at the airport/port and you will be sent the phone number for the driver with your booking confirmation via email. You will normally need to call 15-20 minutes before you get to the meeting point to confirm your vehicle drop-off, and then again once you have picked up your luggage to have your vehicle brought back to you.
With regards to the transfer, you should always check your email booking confirmation as this will contain up-to-date instructions relevant to the car park you have booked.
