    Frequently asked Questions

    I am travelling with a baby – do I need a baby seat for the transfer?

    If you are travelling with a baby, you do not have to bring a baby seat with you. If you would like to bring one, you absolutely can.

    For travellers with young children and lots of luggage, we recommend that you consider using a Meet & Greet service, to make your arrival at the airport as smooth as possible.

    Unfortunately, no, we do not sell motorbike parking. If you require this, it is available at some UK airports, and we recommend that you inquire directly with the airport for more information on this.

    ANPR stands for Automatic Number Plate Recognition. This is used in a lot of car parks to verify whether you have a booking in the system. When you arrive the ANPR cameras will pick up your car registration and if it matches with a booking in their system, the barriers will open for you.
