Reviews
"Allocated A Space In Short Stay"
5stars
Miles - 22 Feb, 2018
Got allocated a space in the short stay which is within walking distance to the terminal. From plane door to car door was 13 minutes which must be a record. No waiting for a packed slow bus. Worth paying the few quid extra.
"Used Short Stay Blue"
