What to expect

When you arrive at Long Stay 1 Park and Ride

Drive up to the entry barrier and wait for the machine to read your number plate - this can take up to a minute. The barrier will open, so you can drive in and park. If nothing happens, press the button marked 'assistance' so you can speak to a member of staff through the intercom. They'll ask you to confirm your details. Don't insert your credit or debit card into the barrier at any point or you will be charged again for your parking, and don't press the ticket button, as this will stop you being able to gain entry.

Once you're through the barrier find a space and keep your keys. From there, just catch the car park's bus to the terminal. It runs every 15 minutes, take 5 minutes and is included in the price.

On your return to East Midlands

Once you have collected your luggage make your way to the Arrivals Hall, walk past Greggs and the Arrow taxis desk, and the buses are to the left of the car park office outside. Where you catch the bus back to the car park.

Then, just drive to the exit barrier which will lift to let you out - this can take up to a minute. If it doesn't, press the button marked 'assistance' and a member of staff will let you out. Don't insert your credit or debit card into the barrier at any point or you will be charged again for your parking.
