No don't work for them. Do people normally only post negative comments? Admit that Snowheads is new to me.

Them's the rules of the interweb chrisb5672.

1st post with a link to a commercial site is going to raise a chorus of "SPAM" from the peanut gallery.

OK fairy snuff. Wish I could remember the name of the hotel in the Alps with the fire escape thru our bedroom. Hopefully that would have been negative enough. PS I work for a Publisher - no names mentioned

Aph are good whether you use meet and greet or park in their car park, used them several times over many years. Also used I love meet and Greet with no problems, did use another recommended on here but they were awful, will try and remember who they were?
It was EPS valet parking, we waited ages for them going out and on return, then having paid them for our short stay exit ticket we had to pay again as they didn't leave the ticket as they never paid! When I rang they were rude, never again.

We use I Love Meet and Greet or Meteor depending on price and what discount voucher we have, both are good. I always take pictures of the car with gps enabled before it's handed over, do the same when renting a car. Not that I have had a problem with either.

For heathrow I always use Purple Parking.

We used Meteor several times but last time several other travellers and I were left standing around at Gatwick for nearly an hour waiting for cars to be brought back. Got given 25% discount on next use by way of apology after complaining, but would've been a real pain if I'd have had the kids with me as I usually would, especially if it had been in January and not June.

We use meteor, tudor rose, ace and the offcial gatwick one in short stay regularly, no issues with any of them despite owning a clearly thrashable joyride sort of car Toofy Grin Would never go back to long stay after trying meet and greet, saves so much time! aj xx

Yeah, they're good until they damage your car.

They badly curbed my pristine alloy and refused to admit it. Cost me £100 to get it refurbed.

I will never, EVER use APH again. If you do, you'd better hope they don't damage your car, because you will never be compensated. There are many bad reviews to that effect.

I've been using MGP Heathrow and ABC Gatwick (owned by Help-Me-Park.com) for valet parking for years.. they're relatively cheap, very reliable, friendly and I've never found fault with them.

Though one time it was quite worrying when a Rastafarian collected the car, he eyed up my RS and started raving about his days as a boy racer! snowHead

I was chatting to a friend about these posts and he mentioned that he had heard of a company that, for a small fee, will drive you in your own car to the airport and then return your car back to your home. On return they will again drive your own car to the airport and return you back home

Sounded like an interesting proposition, no parking fees and your car safely parked at home

Has anyone heard of this type of scheme and can you see any problems?

Apart from someone with the keys to your car knowing where you live and knowing when you are away? Not much could go wrong there. Very Happy

How small a fee will Yorkshire to Gatwick be ? And fuel for the two return journeys?

A stranger ragging my pride and joy all the way back to my empty house? No thanks.

I still use Tudor Rose, must have used them about 8 times now, never had a bad experience. Also valet parking is so much better than waiting around for buses. APH are crap in every way and I'll never forgive them for damaging my car then denying it.

Take the train if you can. Station delivers you onto the airport concourse. I used to live near Luton and flew out of Gatwick many times via the train.

As they say "Let the train take the strain "
