Additional Info

Bikes, surfboards, canoes and other large objects that won't fit into the luggage racks can't be carried on Airparks buses. If you are bringing large items with you, we suggest you drop them off at the airport before you park your car. If you come back to a flat battery, Airparks will be happy to jump start your car for you.

Airparks Birmingham has ladies, men's and disabled toilets, and you can buy hot drinks from the vending machine in reception.

We recommend that you give yourself 45 minutes to drop your car off and transfer to the airport - longer in rush hour, or if there is a major exhibition at the NEC - you can check on www.necgroup.co.uk.

If you're delayed picking your car up, you'll need to pay for the extra parking at the car park's normal rate (which is more expensive than the price you pay when you book with us). If you pick your car up early, unfortunately we can't give you a refund. If you're going to come back early, please let Airparks know, if you can.

On Arrival

When you arrive at the car park pull into the designated arrivals area, here you will be met by a marshal who will check you in and direct you to your space.

You'll need to present a copy of your booking confirmation and you'll be given a ticket, which you should keep safe as you'll need it later. Make a note of where you are parked and then catch the bus from the waiting area to the airport, the journey takes 14 minutes. You'll need to show your ticket to the driver. Buses to the airport run regularly within airport operating hours.

On Return

Just catch the shuttle bus back to the car park from bus stop A - the same place that you were dropped off at. Buses run regularly within airport operational hours. You'll need to show the ticket you were given at check-in to the driver.

After you've collected your car, scan your ticket at the exit barrier to exit the site. If you lose your ticket, you'll need to answer some security questions and show a photo ID, so make sure you have one.
