Returning to the Holiday Inn Express

You must check out by noon. You'll need to take your car to Long Stay car park 2, which is within the airport grounds and only about three minutes from the hotel. The car park has CCTV, entry and exit barriers and a fence and is regularly patrolled.

- As you exit the hotel car park, turn left.
- At the first roundabout, take the second exit.
- Shortly after, you'll approach another roundabout, take the first exit.
- Continue along this road. The car park is on the right.

When you arrive, make sure you are in the car you made your booking with. As you approach the entry barrier, don't take a ticket as a camera will read your number plate and the barrier will raise. If this doesn't happen, press the assistance button for help.
Then just park your car, unload your luggage and either walk or take the shuttle bus to the terminal. The car park is about 10 minutes' walk from check-in, but if you prefer, there's a shuttle bus every 10 to 15 minutes. The bus runs 24 hours a day and is included in the price.
