What to expect

When you arrive at ShortRun by Airparks

Pull up at the barrier of the car park and one of the ShortRun team will come to your window to confirm your details. They'll tell you where to park and give you a receipt with information on what to do when you get back from holiday. Make sure you keep this safe. They'll then open the barrier and let you in.

Once you've parked, head to the bus stop and let the driver help you with your luggage then drop you off at the airport. The bus runs when needed 24 hours a day, takes 5 minutes and is included in the price.

On your return to Birmingham

Give ShortRun a call on 0121 794 2600 when you get to bus stop A, where you were dropped off, so they can send the bus to collect you. You'll then be dropped off in the zone where you parked your car, so there's only a short distance to walk. They'll help you with your luggage again.

Important Information

If you need a Blue Badge space add a comment to your booking, and call the car park directly 24 hours before you go, so they can make sure there is space or try and get you as near as possible to where you get the bus.

Vehicles with a taxi license plate can be parked on-site, but cannot use the Return Greet or Meet and Greet services offered by Airparks.

Early or late? The car park offers a grace period up until midnight at their discretion. Any longer than this and you'll be charged the car park's standard rate of £15 a day. This is subject to change.

Help us go green! There's no need to print out your booking confirmation, just show it on your mobile device.

Most standard cars (without trailers/not commercial vehicles or vehicles with 8 or more seats) will be accepted at the car park as long as they fit under the 2.1m barrier and fit in a standard-size parking bay (2m x 5m). High-sided vehicles, minibuses, mobile homes, lorries, caravans, trailers or vehicles larger than the above maximum dimensions can't be taken.
