Arrival at Toad Park and Ride Manchester
Drive up to the entry barrier. The attendant will check your registration number and lift the barrier to let you in. Park in the arrivals area, unload your luggage and lock your car, then head to reception to check in. Toad Parking will park your car for you, so you'll need to leave your keys with reception (you should only leave your car keys - take all the others off - as the car park can't be responsible for any others). You'll be given a ticket in return. Then just hop on the shuttle bus to the airport.
The bus leaves the car park on the hour and on the half hour from November to March, and on the hour and at 20 and 40 minutes past the hour from April to October. We recommend that you arrive at the car park at least five minutes beforehand, to give yourself time to check in at reception. You should tell the driver which terminal you're going to when you board.
Getting to and from Manchester airport
The bus to and from the airport runs 24 hours a day and is included in the price. It leaves the car park on the hour and on the half hour from November to March, and on the hour and at 20 and 40 minutes past the hour from April to October. There may be extra buses if the car park is busy.
On your return to Toad Park and Ride Manchester
Once you've got your luggage back and come through Customs, give the office a call on 0161 498 9119 to let them know you're ready to be picked up. Very occasionally you may have to board the bus a short distance away from departures. When you get back to the car park, just go to reception to pick up your keys. The attendant will lift the exit barrier to let you out.
The car park charges between £8 and £15 extra for vans and other large vehicles. It's a one-off charge, unrelated to how long you're staying, and you'll need to pay it at the car park when you arrive.
Cars may be photographed or videoed for security reasons.
Your car must be roadworthy when you drop it off. You should let reception know if it's been modified or damaged in any way (for example, if it's got extra alarms or immobilisers fitted). You mustn't bring dangerous or illegal substances to the car park.
You can't tow a vehicle into the car park without clearing it with them first.
Animals aren't allowed on the shuttle bus, unless you've cleared it with the car park first.
If you leave anything behind in your car, you won't be able to catch the shuttle bus back to the car park to collect it. Toad Parking can bring it to the terminal for you, but they'll charge for this.
There is a 10mph speed limit in the car park.
Toad Parking can't be responsible for delays caused by factors outside its control, such as traffic congestion and breakdowns, or for customers missing their flight unless it can be proved that it's Toad Parking's fault. We recommend that you arrive at the car park at least two hours before check-in closes for your flight.
You should keep your luggage with you on the shuttle bus, or put it in the storage area, not in the aisles. If your case is too heavy for the driver to lift safely, he or she may ask you to lift it yourself. The shuttle bus driver has the right to refuse to let anyone travel who isn't in a suitable state to do so.
The construction of the new Metrolink from Manchester city centre to the airport is under way. There will be roadworks and an increased likelihood of traffic in the area until 2016, so we highly recommend that you leave extra time to get to the airport.
