Short Stay (STN) Very convenient for the airport. Makes so much difference to be able to park and then walk to the terminal.Mr Henman 21 Sep, 2016 (5 out of 5)

JetParks (STN) I found the signposts around the car park quite poor and feel that would really help to make it clearer where the car park is and which areas are open and closed.Miss Vickers 18 Sep, 2016 (3 out of 5)

JetParks (STN) ease of parking, but as with all car parks unfortunately i returned and found a 4x4 parked next to me with no consideration of how i should get in my car had to get in the passenger door not the best end to a holiday (I am 66 years old and it felt that way) would be good if these larger cars had their own area to park and paid more for the larger space. I do realise that this is a common problem, but maybe your staff could highlight this to these drivers. via notes their windscreensMr Clements 12 Sep, 2016 (5 out of 5)

Mid Stay (STN) 30 minute wait for bus on our return when advertised as every 10 minutes is unacceptable. Also when leaving car park instructions on ticket machine at barrier were virtually non existent and others also had problems as big queues leaving car park!
Mr Baker 03 Sep, 2016 (3 out of 5)

Long Stay (STN) Easy transfer to airport and backMr Bhogal 02 Sep, 2016 (5 out of 5)

Mid Stay (STN) I like the reliability of the bus running regularly at relatively short intervals. May this continue!
As for possible improvements, the signposting for Exit from the car park should be more visible.

Helpful Advice

For a successfully stress-free holiday, preparation is key. We have compiled some useful information that will help your holiday run as smooth as it can be.

Before you book

You should work out what option is going to be the best for you. For example, if you are traveling with children, then you may want to park close to the airport in the Mid-Stay car park to avoid long transfers. If you have oversized luggage, like sports equipment, then it is worth booking the Meet and Greet service, as some transfer buses do not accept larger-luggage on board.
