Excellent customer service had to change my booking with less than 12 hours notice, rang up and within a few mins they moved my booking back by 2weeks no hassle no admin costs.Used the meet and greet service at manchester you cant any closer to the airport than their car park. Recognised my car on arrival despite the last min alterations.
Used the meet and greet parking service at Manchester airport. Staff were friendly and professional. Most of the service is automated so took under 10 minutes on both arrival and departure. Great service at a reasonable price, would highly recommend.
used meet and greet at terminal 1 manchester easy in - easy out. All OK
Waited almost 45 minutes to be transported from the car park to the terminal on the start of the holiday. The bus then went via all other terminals before dropping us off. It claims to be 5 mins from the airport but it is more like 15-20 to certain terminals!!The service on the return was not much better. Waited approx. 20 mins and then it goes to other terminals before going to the car park. I would not use them again.
Please tell us which car park you booked so that other customers can be advised.
The website says the parking is 10 mins from airport and that buses run every 10mins it took 45mins from parking the car to get to terminal. On return whilst quickly checking the bus was the right one and trying to engage with the driver he just drove off and then we waited 20 mins for another one. We will never use Jet Parks again.
We are sorry about this poor service and have forwarded your comments to Jetparks.
Easy to find straight in through barrier found space quickly.
A little time to wait for the bus. Our flight was late,but we made sure that we were well covered by ringing parking for less when our flight time was altered about a month before our flight..The person we spoke to when we rang Parking for Less was very helpful, and enabled us to change our times, which fitted with the new timing. Manchester airport parking is at the moment being improved, so taking care to remember where you are parked is helpful.
Paniced about actual entrance as going up the nearby multi storey with no backing out would have been expensive and a waste of time. Think a map of the entrance would have been more helpful than a text description, but once over this hiccup the drop off was flawless. On arrival I remembered the safe place I had put the ticket and the Car was waiting, so took 4 mins from exiting the terminal to being in the driving seat. Would use again.
Excellent experience right through the process. Thank you. My new go to travel car parking!
Only one thing was wrong it said when you approach the barrier it reads your number plate and an orange token will drop no token barrier did open bus driver said you don't need the token otherwise no problems easy to get to drops you right outside the terminal bus waiting when we got back just remember where you parked
