Short Stay 3 East Midlands Airport Address
East Midlands airport,
The barrier did not automatically lift on exit. Instructions on how to get help were unclear. Asked to press button marked assistance...there wasn't one! Otherwise good.Mrs Blackburn (East-midlands Short Stay 3 East Midlands Airport)
There were problems again one on our side we didn't know about the change of flight times until the day before departure, travel agents incompetence, but everything was changed on the phone but was a waste of time because when we got to barrier same old trouble didn't rise, everything was explained to staff member who was extremely helpful but didn't change any details , because again on exit the barrier didn't rise and I had to another member of staff our predicament, I am also getting fed up with your email ads, whilst I have booked a parking space at an airport why the bell would I want 15% off another space somewhere else, not physically possible, I may look for alternative companies next holiday which before you send me a fantastic saving of 15% it won't be next week,Mr Painter (East-midlands Short Stay 3 East Midlands Airport)
All went well until trying to leave the car park at midnight after a 5hr flight delay We were travelling with elderly parents who needed assistance, so i satyed in terminal building whilst my husband went to collect the car as it was raining. We waited and waited he then called as the exit was asking for Â£85.99 payment. Eventually he managed to speak to an attendant giving the reference code etc and was able ro exit the car park. Not a very efficient exit no registrarion recognition etc as we had previuosly experienced. And then oMrs Yell (East-midlands Short Stay 3 East Midlands Airport)
top of this collection from terminal is a other Â£2 with the exit barrier/machine there playing up a d requiring us to call another attendant.
Disappointing inefficient and frustrating end.
In reply to your questions below ( only yes/no options) not sure would probably go dirct to car park provider as very little difference in price
